1978 Continental Mark V Diamond Jubilee Edition. 24,300 miles since new! 460 cid engine! This car is 100% original down to the rare and optional dual stripe Goodyear Polysteel spare tires. The ones on the car have been replicated. Surviving as one of the best preserved cars I have encountered, this Diamond Jubilee Mark V also boasts every option that was available. This car was not abused, or neglected. This car was maintained as a collector car. It shows in every manner as a new car. This was the top car offered for 1978. Being that it had every option available, other than dual exhaust, the price tag on this car in 1978 was $21,791.00! There were 5,159 Jubilee's made, 2,602 in Diamond Blue and only 1,511 with the optional moonroof like this one. Although this car came loaded with standard features not seen on other cars, like the console umbrella; leather bound owner's manual and matching tool kit; leather dashboard and all leather or ebony woodtone accents, this car did have options like the the astro moonroof; the CB and matching chrome CB radio antenna; the full size dual stripe spare. This car features the front bucket seats in Wedgewood Blue luxury cloth with the Wedgewood blue broadlace inserts, and a padded leather console. The carpeting consits of a 36 oz. Tiffany cut-pile which is also matching in the trunk. An option only on the Diamond Jubilee. Other fine touches consisted of beveled intrument panel lenses; beveld opera windows with Diamond Jubilee Edition in gold script, and a simulated Diamond used for an "I" in edition. This car also has the optional garage door opener transmitter, still new in the box with receipt. Everything is power, and everything works. As the sales brochure proclaimed: "Presenting the very special, 75th Anniversary, Diamond Jubilee Edition Continental Mark V. This is a very special automobile, an autommobile that is, frankly, an indulgence in every best sense of the word. This is the Diamond Jubilee Edition Mark V. It is a unique model and it repesents the most luxurious production automobile we've ever built." And that certainly is true! Seeing is believing this one-of-a-kind, head turning beauty!
