For Sale: 1978 Lincoln Continental in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars Houston Showroom is pleased to present this Diamond Blue 1978 Lincoln Continental Mark V Diamond Jubilee Edition. The Continental Mark V is a personal luxury coupe that was marketed by the Lincoln division of Ford Motor Company from the 1977 to 1979 model years in North America. The fourth generation Mark series, the Mark V was derived from its Continental Mark IV predecessor, bringing an extensive update to the interior and exterior design. While only sold for three years, the Mark V is the highest-selling generation of the Mark series. At 230 inches long, the Mark V is the largest two-door coupe ever sold by Ford Motor Company. This "one of 5,159 ever built" (Diamond Jubilee Editions) Mark V is powered by a strong 460 CID V8, which is backed by 3-speed automatic transmission. These cars weren't about performance. They were about a silent, cushy ride and plush seats that swallowed you in velour comfort. The Diamond Blue exterior is in survivor condition, with a little patina; but the Diamond Blue velour interior and carpet are in quite good shape: clean, luxurious, and comfortable. The car rides nicely and would make a nice first collector car for someone, or a nice stylish daily driver which still has most of the modern creature comforts we've come to expect. The 1978 Mark V marked the apex of Lincoln luxury and engineering, as subsequent cars became victims of stricter federal requirements, badge engineering, and shifting buying habits. The options include: AM/FM/8-Track Radio, Air Conditioning, Aluminum Wheels, Cruise Control, Power Antenna, Power Locks, Power Seats, Power Steering, Power Windows, Rear Defroster, Radial Tires, , Tilt Steering Wheel, and Seat Belts. Don't miss out on the low-production collector car from Ford Motor Company's 75th anniversary year, the '78 Lincoln Mark V Diamond Jubilee Edition - call or email our Houston Showroom today!
