A ton of originality, a ton of luxury, and a ton of size means you get a ton of appeal in this 1978 Lincoln Mark V without having to spend a ton of cash. So check out everything from the big V8 to the rare sunroof option that makes this one so attractive.
There are two different ways to really appreciate this coupe. First is the way it was ordered from the factory. After all, there's just something extra cool about a long Lincoln coupe in a double black with the black paint and black vinyl roof. The other part of the appreciation is the originality. This paint appears to be the factory application. And so it has the kind of patina fade that some people love today. If you're looking to have a sleek double-black classic, then the value price should leave room in your budget for that. After all, no matter what attracted you to this Mark V, there is a fundamental appeal in a car that has such straight sheet metal, complete trim, big chrome bumpers, a well-fitting vinyl roof, and an overall sharp style. In other words, you absolutely get the impression of a premium Lincoln that received proper care.
The red pinstripe on the outside is a preview of the inside, and there's just something upper-class about a black car with a red leather interior. It's a highly original presentation that has been well-kept to make sure you get plush carpeting, supple upholstery, and a clean/complete feel - right down to the wood-like trim. The interior is large enough to comfortably seat six people. But there's also a feeling of individual luxury for the driver with a fold-down armrest, a tilt steering column, and power front seats. It's loaded with the best features, like power locks, cruise control, and even the classic factory AM/FM stereo with 8-track. There are also provisions for desirable options like R134a air conditioning, power windows, and a power sunroof (they will need servicing to ideally function again.)
Under the hood is the 460 cubic-inch V8. This is important to have because this was the final year for the biggest of big blocks. It has a time capsule kind of style, right down to the factory decals. But you can also see from the fresher fundamentals, including the wires and hoses, that this has also received proper care over the years. So the big V8 is still a smooth runner like a good Lincoln should be. And the luxury feeling continues out on the road with a supple ride, power steering, three-speed automatic transmission, and the confident stopping of four-wheel power disc brakes.
This Mark V has all the best hallmarks of the best classic luxury coupes and plenty of survivor-style fun, too. So don't miss your chance, call today!
