Used 1979 Lincoln Continental Mark V
1979 Lincoln Continental Mark V Collector SeriesSome people claim that their classic car is in Showroom Condition but in the case of this Lincoln Continental Mark V, it is the truth. After spending its entire life stored indoors, this Mark V Collectors Series shows a mere 45 miles on the odometer and retains the original window sticker, still attached to the driver's side window. No matter how much you may spend restoring a car, there is absolutely no replicating the originality found on this stunning time capsule example.Built between 1977 and 1979, the Lincoln Continental Mark V was the ultimate American luxury coupe of the era and, at 230 inches in length, the longest 2-door coupe ever offered by Ford. Based on the prior generation Mark IV, the Mark V both grew dimensionally, while simultaneously dropping nearly 400 lbs in curb weight and increasing the level of luxury on the interior. The Mark V design featured a number of hallmarks from the Continental line that included rear Opera Windows as well as covered front headlight, front fender louvers and the Continental Kit rear decklid which harkened back to the Mark 1 Continental.This Continental Mark 5 is finished in White with a white vinyl roof and the body is in absolutely immaculate condition throughout. As you look around the car, you notice things like the original factory stampings on the inside buckets of the headlight housing are still present and bright yellow- something that would have worn off decades ago on any other Mark 5. The multi-spoke turbine-style wheels are a combination of gold and bare metal and they have that unique gloss to them that would be nearly impossible to recreate in the aftermarket. The aforementioned rear Continental Kit style trunk lid features a beautiful vinyl accent on the rear semi-circle with the Continental name and Lincoln badge affixed within.The interior is the ultimate in 1970s luxury- a sea of deep blue thick pile carpets and cushy blue velour upholstery. Massive front bucket seats with a console between them are like sitting on pillows, and envelop you as you sit into them. The blue dashboard features a combination of wood applique and stainless steel and in front of the driver sits a beautiful Cartier analog clock that was part of the Collector Series package. Like with the rest of the car, when you look in the interior, the overall condition is second to none and the 45 miles on the odometer and long term indoor storage are entirely believable.Over the past few decades, the large American luxury coupe has more or less died out. There is no doubt that the pinnacle of that genre of car were the vehicles coming out of Detroit in the 1970s with the Continental Mark 5 being one of the very best. This example presents a truly once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase what is sure to be one of the only, if not the only, sub-50 mile examples of this car in existence, presented in as-new condition from bumper to bumper. This would be the perfect addition to any collection or for display in a museum, as the quality really is that good.Additional Information * Original Window Sticker * Original Tool Kit * Original Umbrella * Original License Plate Frame in Wrapper * Original Books and ManualsFor more information on this 1979 Lincoln MK V Collector Series or any of our High-Performance, Luxury, Exotic, and Special Interest cars always in stock, contact one of our friendly and knowledgeable sales consultants or always feel free to drop by our 40,000+ sq ft of Indoor Showrooms in Bellevue, WA - Home of an Exciting Inventory of Luxury, Exotic, High Performance and Collectible Automobiles.
