1979 Lincoln Mark V $13,995
All the great big personality of the 1970s in a cool limited edition package. This 1979 Lincoln Continental Mark V Cartier Edition is a time capsule than offers distinction, luxury, and value.
This is pure rolling opulence from an era when American cars wanted to own the road with their size. The Continental Mark V was already a status symbol, and so far fewer people could reach the true rarified air of the more expensive Cartier special edition. These cream of the crop coupes were distinguished by an exclusive color theme. The Light Champagne paint is believed to be original, and the way it still shines today tells you it has been treated with respect. It has an elegant look that's furthered by the color-matched wheels. And the dark tan pinstripe coordinates with the border for the half vinyl roof. And for those who don't already recognize this as the a truly special Lincoln, the opera window is etched with the Cartier name.
When you open the door, the pillow-top Champagne seats carry the dark tan accent of the exterior. And this also coordinates with the door panels for a uniform look inside and out. It's a major sense of style that you expect from the special designer editions the Lincoln was famous for offering. The interior is large enough to comfortably seat six people, but the driver is always king. That's why you can fold down the armrests and power adjust the seat for true independent luxury. And as expected with a well-preserved classic Lincoln, luxury is a priority. You get power windows, power door locks, cruise control, and plenty of glossy wood trim. Plus, the air conditioning was upgraded to R134a to make sure you continue to ride in comfort.
Ford's smooth and refined 400 cubic-inch 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 correct, right down to the decals. And because this was meant to be an effortless cruiser, Lincoln gave it the kind of features you'll still love today. The three-speed C6 automatic transmission, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes makes it easy to own the modern road.
Complete with owner's manual, this Continental Mark V Cartier Edition is a rare classic with a great presentation and an affordable price. An opportunity like this is seldom and fleeting, so if you want to take it home, call today!
