This is the final year for the Continental Mark V, and for lovers of long and intricate design, this closed the book on boulevard-loving Lincolns. So it's awesome to have a survivor-level coupe. It spent the majority of its life under the care of one owner, and it has averaged about 1,100 miles annually. So not only is the black believed to be the original factory application, but it also retains a terrific color and shine. This is executive-level elegance with the long hood, chrome bumpers, and the color-matched half vinyl roof. Even the details are elegant, like the intricate marker lights and opera windows. But this coupe also has a sporty side with the hidden headlights, turbine-style wheels, vents in the fenders, and a full-length red pinstripe.
The red accenting not only looks great against the exterior, but it's also a preview of the interior. This is original to the car, and low mileage means there has been little time to wear it in over the last four decades. The extra plush cordovan cloth is just as comfy as it looks. Plus, a folding armrest and power seat means the driver really gets to experience individualized luxury. This one came straight from the factory with premium items like a power windows, power locks, and cruise control. They all work exactly as one would expect in this well-preserved Continental coupe. The driver-oriented dash looks amazing with a premium wood-like presentation, and it frames the all the desirable features – from the factory AM/FM stereo to the cold-blowing air conditioning.
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 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 allow you to smoothly and quickly cruise away from the stoplight. And because the car has been so original thus far, it should be no surprise that this is believed to be the original powerplant. Lincoln paid close attention to making this a terrific cruiser when new, and so it remains effortless today. This is due to features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power disc brakes at all four wheels.
The sale comes complete with original warranty card and owner's manual. This is believed to be a southern car all its life, and it's full of southern charm. So don't let this survivor slip away. Call now!
