This Gold Lincoln Continental Mark IV was new for the 1972 model year, available only as a two-door hardtop coupe. It is instantly recognizable because of its small “Greek Temple” grille, oval opera windows, and Continental rear trunk lid hump that evokes the Continental Kits of the 1950s. On top of all that, the new Continental is four inches longer than the 1971 model, adding to the visual impression of an extremely long hood.
Under the long hood is a 460-cid big-block V-8 sourced from Ford. The Mark IV delivers 224 net hp.
