Vehicle Description


The 1978 Lincoln Mark V Diamond Jubilee Edition represents the zenith of luxury and exclusivity. With only 62,842 miles recorded on the odometer, this specific model is distinguished and ready for the next chapter of its life. 

Equipped with a powerful 460ci V8 engine and backed by an automatic transmission, only 2,557 units received the exclusive Jubilee Gold paint finish in 1978. The exterior features a Landau-style top and hide-away headlights, while the round opera rear side windows give it an elegant look. This edition is equipped with a power moonroof, air conditioning, and power-operated seats and windows. Technological enhancements feature a contemporary backup camera and an aftermarket carburetor.

Service to the A/C unit, along with the replacement of the starter, alternator, battery, and tires, has been recently performed, adding reliability. A new rear main seal has also been installed. The vehicles stewardship of approximately two years in South Carolina has resulted in diligent upkeep, as evidenced by the third-party documented photographs and inspection declaring the vehicle's condition. The original mirror, service receipts and original headlamps are available with the car.

This Lincoln is available in South Carolina as a Premium Listing on CLASSIC.COM offered by Parker Frazier.

About the model

The Lincoln Mark V, also known as the Continental Mark V, was introduced for the 1977 model year. Part of the Lincoln Mark Series, the Mark V was a luxury coupe available with a 6.6L or 7.5L V8 engine. The Mark V is considered to be one of the last traditional full-size American cars, as successors would be downsized. The Lincoln Mark V was in production until 1979 and was replaced by the Lincoln Mark VI.
