With its opulent look, luxury features, A/C interior and correct 460 V8, this 1972 Lincoln Continental Mark IV is true classic luxury. And it even has a great story about a long-term ownership and a bit of a celebrity past.
The distinct design of this machine gets heads turning. After all, that hood is almost impossibly long, and it leads the way with elegant touches like the hidden headlights and Rolls-Royce inspired grille. The bumpers hug the form like proper chrome kings because this was built before federal regulations. Plus, the full-length pinstripe shows off the curves of the profile and the straightness that the well-respected sheetmetal still holds today. The white paint has a nice glow to it, and the coordinating cream vinyl roof gives this a delicate sophistication. It's a true executive-level package, and that's exactly who bought it. The story on this is that it was purchased by Hayes Electronic Ignition and was even used in their advertisements. And the family kept this car in their care for the next 47 years. It's an extraordinary tale, and we even have the original dealer invoice and Hayes advertisement to back it up.
The ultra-low odometer reflects the actual mileage, and so you can see great care and little use in the leather interior. The tobacco brown looks fantastic with its plush pillow-top presentation. You have the choice to seat six total, or fold down the front armrest to give you true individual luxury. Your seat even power adjusts to the ideal position. Plus, the wood-like trim on the dash adds to the upper-class feeling. As expected from a vehicle of this caliber, there are plenty of factory luxuries, including power windows, power locks, a tilt steering column, and the factory AM/FM stereo. Even the factory air conditioning is blowing nice and cold.
Under the hood is the correct 460 cubic inch V8. It really has a terrific look of originality right down to the bold blue paint and factory decals. So it's easy to believe that this is the original powerhouse. Topped with a four-barrel carburetor, this is a big block that produces big torque. The V8 is still a strong runner today, and the three-speed automatic transmission shifts smoothly. So it means this vintage Lincoln remains a terrific boulevard cruiser. And that's especially true thanks to features like power steering, power brakes with discs up front, and modern Hankook tires behind those classic stock wheel covers.
The sale comes with the dealer invoice, maintenance records, and the full owner's manual packet. This is vintage luxury that has an awesome preservation and a cool story to tell. That's what makes it such an irresistible upper-class classic. Call today!!!
