With its preserved vintage style, true luxury features (including A/C,) and big V8 power, this 1974 Lincoln Continental Mark IV continues to represent the era of awesome and elegant classic cruisers. The affordable price is just the cherry on top.
The Continental Mark IV was the bridge between two styling eras. The previous generation established a flowing elegance, and this one continues that with the flared fenders, smooth kick-up behind the rear door, and taillights that stylishly wrap around the body. But the 1970s would be a more forceful period, and this also ushered in a more commanding style. That means sharper body lines, bigger chrome bumpers, and a roof pillar so large that you got an opera window. Plus, it always continued the right traditions, like the Rolls-Royce inspired grille, long hood, and a trunk built to look like there was a namesake continental kit on the rear. It all makes the Mark IV a distinct and stylish coupe - especially on this example. The factory-correct Sunburst Copper Bronze paint has been refreshed during its lifetime to make sure the metallic element still knows how to radiate. And the full-length pinstripe not only goes with the full vinyl roof, but they both also coordinate with the interior.
The pillow-top style of the leather interior is pure classic luxury, and this has been preserved so nicely that you'll love to show it all off. The details really are beautiful, right down to the shag carpeting and the rear ashtray that set in the front door (just to remind you how far the doors stretched!) The interior is large enough to comfortably seat six people, or both rows can fold down the armrests for four independent luxury capsules. And no matter how many people are along for the ride, the driver always takes priority. That's why the front seats individually power adjust. There's a tilt steering column, and it's an easy reach to features like power windows, power locks, the Philco AM/FM stereo, and cold-blowing factory air conditioning.
Ford's big 460 cubic-inch V8 was the ideal tire-filled power hose for a long cruiser like this. Fans of originality will love how the big blue Ford engine looks so preserved, right down to the decals. This V8 fires up eagerly as it inhales deeply with the four-barrel carburetor. Features like the supple ride and cruise control make it a true boulevard machine. And the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes with discs up front make it easy to enjoy near or far.
The sale comes complete with nice extras, like a car cover, the owner's manual, and the original 1974 new car temp tag. It's all about a true cruiser with great preservation and presentation. Call today!!!
