All the great big personality of the 1970s in a cool limited
edition package. This 1979 Lincoln Continental Mark V Givenchy
Edition is a low-mileage time capsule than offers distinction,
luxury, and value.
The Continental has always been a great American luxury car with a TON of vintage sheetmetal. This style Mark V was longer, wider, and lower than its predecessors. The hood alone looks like it could have its own horizon. Luxury was a guarantee with features like the razor-sharp fender creases, Rolls-Royce style grille, and 1970s cool flat front hidden headlights. This is accented by attractive parking light lenses that are miniature works of casting genius. Out back, the deck lid features the Continental's trademark spare tire hump/continental kit. But there's something special about this coupe. Few people were willing to add 16% over the already expensive Mark V for the Givenchy Edition. That makes the factory-correct Crystal Blue Moondust Metallic paint a unique feature. This included other notable upgrades such the pinstriping and half vinyl roof in a complementary shade of darker blue. You might have also noticed the Givenchy was the only one that covered the forward half of the roof, and the rear portion had the hallmark opera windows, but now they have Givenchy in the glass.
Inside the seating reflect the exterior perfectly. The blue leather is a nice matching shade for the accessory color, and all the seatbacks have the Givenchy logo stitched into them. The doors, dash, headliner, and even the steering wheel continue this great blue theme. It's joined by some tasteful wood trim to really give it a premium atmosphere. All of it is presented in like-new condition, because less than 20K on the odometer means there is very little seat time. The interior is large enough to comfortably seat six people, and up front you can fold down the armrests for the choice of independent luxury. As expected with a true premium cruiser, this one comes with power everything - power windows, power door locks, and power front seats. Other great comfort features in this classic include cruise control and the original AM/FM stereo with 8-track. There is even a Cartier in-dash clock in front of the driver, so you know this is true automotive jewelry.
Ford's smooth and refined 400 cubic-inch Cleveland V8 provides effortless performance in the Continental. It has good horsepower, but the real story is the torque that's about enough to pull a boat. Of course you will likely never want to tow a yacht in this beautiful big bodied car, but it's this kind of available strength that allows you to smoothly and quickly cruise away from the stoplight. Fans of originality will love how the numbers-matching big blue Ford engine looks factory-fresh. While this is the perfect car for the drive-in (after all, it's more comfortable than any movie theater seat), there's much more to the Mark V. It has a three-speed C6 automatic transmission, power steering, and disc brakes at all four wheels. This means you can ride in comfort to car meets as far away as you want.
This Continental Mark V Givenchy Edition is a rare classic with low miles and an exceptionally affordable price. An opportunity like this is seldom and fleeting, so if you want to take it home, call today!
