For Sale: 1976 Lincoln Continental Mark IV in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

1974 Lincoln Mark IV Hardtop

Ah, the 1970's. It was the big decade, a time for big houses, big hair, big families, big bell bottoms, and big cars! Despite this being the Malaise Era, status seekers still knew what they liked. Show the world you have arrived with a Fleetwood. Keep up with the Jones' by buying a Cutlass. But according to stories I have heard, if you were the owner of a Steakhouse, or a Car Wash, you drove one of these...the Lincoln Continental Mark IV.

For consignment, priced for the everyday man, this large and in charge Lincoln MK IV. Big steel panels, a padded vinyl roof, and plenty of legroom, allow you to stretch out and go for a cruise, all the while turning heads on Main Street!

Those large steel panels are straight and original, as we're talking a title verified mileage car here, that being 49,765 miles. Original factory applied Cream drapes all the steel surfaces on this biggie, with a color name that is befitting perfectly for this car. This is topped off with a cream padded top featuring opera windows mounted in the "B" pillars. Working hidden headlights flank a massive Rolls-Royce style grille that protrudes from the hood. A near perfect chrome bumper wraps around the bottom. Thin banded and gold dressed stainless trim makes its way rearward circumnavigating the wheel wells, and rocker panels, ending at the rear bumper, which is also pristine. Badging is all correct, gaps are well minded, and even exterior rear-view mirrors are near perfect. Thin stripe whitewall radials surround massive plated wheel covers, all original. A shout out to the gold carpeted trunk complete with the carpeted spare tire cover and factory jack assembly.

Square gold and ivory tufted and buttoned and pillow topped leather flank 2 leather armrests and make up the "cushy" front seating. The same for the passengers in the rear, although they get a large bench. Door panels have similar treatment and have wood grained panels intermixed with the more gold and ivory leather. Within the doors we note joystick controls for the mirror and seat, power windows, and power locks for the doors and windows. A showroom headliner is tightly hung above, and even the interior courtesy light works! Looking toward the dash we see burl applique wood grain with climate control, a clock, the speedometer, an original Philco AM/FM radio, and several warning lights, all framed by a gold padded vinyl upper dash, with no cracks or marring. Thick pile gold carpeting showing very little wear or fading is flooding the floors and holds on the hump a Cobra CB radio, got your ears on good buddy?

To propel this mass, within a clean engine bay, is a 460ci V8 shoehorned into the space. This is topped by a gas guzzling, but power adding 4-barrel carburetor, and backed by a 3-speed automatic C6 transmission. A Ford 9" rear axle with 2.75 gears propels this mass down the highway. I can tell you from a test drive, there aren't enough O's in smooooooth, to describe the wonderful ride, and shifting I got from my test drive.

Clean and clear, virtually no rust except for the occasional and uneventful surface rust which has accumulated over the years, but certainly has not impeded the structural underpinnings of this big car. Independent coil spring front suspension, and 4 link and coil spring rear suspension provide that cushy Lincoln ride and power disc brakes are seen on all 4 corners.

A quick starter, and smooth runner, albeit with a slight miss in the engine at idle. This car provides a beautiful ride, and good handling, as well as bias free panic stopping. All conveniences were in working order except for the clock, and the seats were like sitting in my home favorite recliner, especially so when I was caressing my well manicured tootsies through the lush carpet.

In the day this car was way out of reach for the masses, and now sits in near pristine condition awaiting its next driver who can just smile in the ride, and comfort this car has to offer. All original, well maintained, and pampered, this low mileage example is sure to please even the most discriminating vintage '70's luxury car aficionado.
