This 1973 Lincoln Mark IV “Bugazzi” is 1 of 12 designed and built by George Barris’ Hollywood Coach Builders in the 1970s. What did Frank Sinatra, Ole Blue Eyes’ fellow Rat Packers Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop all have in common. They all had to own one of these wild Bugazzi custom luxury rides based on Lincoln’s massive 1973 Mark IV Town Car. Joe Conforte, the infamous proprietor of the Mustang Ranch and other Nevada houses of ill repute, was the original owner of this example presented here.
The Barris creativity went to work and he extended the front fenders by 8 inches and the rear by 6 inches, extended the front-grille housing and refinished the original fiberglass roof cap with a padded vinyl covering. He lowered it by 6 inches and commissioned Art Himsl Paint Studio in Concord, California, to lay down the fabulous special PPG blend of Gold Pearl clear with Ice Pearl, and light tan pinstriping and a hand-painted graphic on the spare-tire cover fabricated from two Lincoln Continental decklids. The interior is even more bold, with a baroque-ish mix of colors and textures ranging from brown leather and gold brocade to color-coordinated granite inserts for the armrests and full-length center console; including the original Nevada Bell rotary-dial car phone and an Arc Audio sound system. This Bugazzi has been very well maintained and is believed to have 60,000 original miles. Powered by a 460 CI V-8, it features rebuilt heads, carburetor and distributor; new gaskets, belts and hoses; a new 3-inch dual-exhaust system; and a full inspection and servicing to the C6 automatic transmission. Riding on Coker whitewall tires on 15-inch wire wheels with bullet caps, it features a new master cylinder, new brakes and new windshield. Featured at the Blackhawk Museum in Danville, California, award winner at the Grand National Roadster Show and Blackie's Invitational, this incredible time machine will remain a classic Barris icon and will be a show stopper in any collection.
