The Lincoln Continental and the Lincoln Mark series have had several incarnations over the years, but they''ve always been at the very top of Lincoln''s luxury car lineup. Comfortable, powerful, loaded with options... And that''s certainly how I would describe this 1972 Lincoln Continental Mark IV. It''s a study in 1970s opulence, replete with hideaway headlights, a Cartier clock in the dash, and that oval opera window -- de rigueur on personal luxury cars of the era.
This three-owner example is a true survivor in remarkable original condition. Very clean and mechanically sound with just 62,000 original miles, this Lincoln still has its original paint, original vinyl roof and original leather upholstery, all in great condition. It''s hard to believe this car is 40 years old -- it has clearly been garaged its entire life.
The power-adjustable leather seats are still soft, supple and stain-free (amazing, given that they are white). Door panels, carpet, headliner, wood dash, steering wheel, gauges... Yes, all in great shape. The original AM/FM radio is still fitted in the dash and works fine. Glass and chrome are excellent, and panels are straight with good gaps. There''s no evidence of any previous accident damage, and those giant doors align and close perfectly.
It''s long. It''s heavy. But acceleration is effortless thanks to a giant 460 cubic inch V8 (that''s 7.5 liters) rated at 365 gross horsepower (1972 was the last year before new EPA requirements drastically reduced power output). The car is very quiet, thanks to extensive sound deadening, but you can just hear that subtle yet unmistakable big-block rumble. Automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes and factory a/c systems all work as they should.
In short, this Lincoln looks, feels and drives like a cloud. Give us a call at 404-692-5250 if you''re interested in learning more about this fine example of 1970s luxury.
