For Sale: 1979 Lincoln Mark V in Wickenburg, Arizona


Vehicle Description

Like new and original down to the tires, with only 8496 miles. This car is literally looks like it did sitting in the show room, down to the tires, and it all works perfectly. Under the hood the story is the same with very little grease or grime anywhere, nor is there a spec of rust anywhere to be found. To our knowledge every last item on the car still works as it did when new. The A/C gets cold amazingly fast, power seats recline, antenna powers right up and the stereo sounds great. The Cartier clock still spins in the dash, and everything is amazingly clear and bright for its age. The distance to empty digital calculator is very interesting being the first use of any such device in an American car, and it seems to work fine like everything else. This car belonged to my great Grandfather who died shortly after purchasing it, and it has been barely driven since, accumulating only 8600 miles over its 37 years. It was purchased new in Colorado and spent most of its life there before being transported to Arizona after the death of my Great Grandmother. I don’t think the back seats of the car where every used as the plastic is still on the back seat belts as it was from the factory. In the trunk the spare tire and equipment is right where it was from new having never been used, and it is an exact match to the tires on the car. Now to Nit-pick the details I will detail every last thing I know of. I don’t know who has the owner’s manual, but am asking around in the family and we will get it if we can, I think it is with the Window sticker and other original documents which we don’t currently have. Inside the car on the driver seat are several black spots my theory is that my great grandfather did that while smoking in the car in 79 but we don’t know for sure. Also inside the switch for the HVAC controls should have a chrome tip which is missing. Outside the car are several little marks in the paint which you have to focus on to see, I have photographed and videoed them. A couple spots appear that something was leaned up against the car during its years of storage. We took the car recently to a paint expert who confirmed that the marks on the car appear to be from items leaned against it. The paint guy figured the car could be buffed back to original, but to this date we have not chosen to do anything to the car accept preserve it. Inside of the trunk look a little stained, but could probably be cleaned. Finally if you look close in person you will see the trim around the wheels on the passenger side looks like maybe the car was rubbed very close against something, It is real easy to miss, but it there.
