The bright paint, road-owning size, and desirable big V8 all remind you that the 1978 Lincoln Continental Town Car is a true classic premium cruiser. And when the presentation is both this nice and vintage, it feels like driving a luxury time capsule.
Lincoln has always been a premium nameplate, but not all of them were created equal. The Town Car trim on the Continental was the top of the line. This optional package is where you get the details that really impress, like the opera rear windows and the contrasting coach roof. The Crystal Apricot Poly has a nice bright look, and just enough age for most people to think it's original. And the white part of the roof is now painted on so that you don't have to worry about the condition of the vinyl. These really knew how to own the road with a premium look of hidden headlights, a Rolls-Royce inspired grille, and wraparound bumpers that draw extra attention to the artful lights that extend from each corner. And everything appears complete on this classic: from the full-length body trim to the smooth factory wheel covers.
Open the door to two rows of pillow-top leather seats. It proves that this sedan is more comfortable then some people's living rooms. In fact, a full-size car in the 1970s means you also have more room than some people's homes! That's how you define classic American luxury, and so this is a sedan that family and friends will love to go for a ride. But even when you're just going solo, this Town Car is great. The individual armrests up front and power driver's seat mean you can easily set your individual level of comfort. The opulent dash is built around you with an easy reach to the power locks, cruise control, remote mirror control, and the original AM/FM stereo with separate 8-track. Plus, there are provisions for power windows and factory air conditioning. And yes, Lincoln's famous Cartier clock still has a prominent placement in the middle.
Under the hood is Ford's 460 cubic-inch V8. This has a very stock look, and this is an important displacement to have, because 1978 was the final year for this big V8. The four-barrel carburetor lets this motor inhale deeply, and it runs well. So you get the kind of confidence and torque that can move mountains. But really, you'll just enjoy this Town Car for the way it can get moving from stoplights. And because this is built for luxury, the power steering, front disc brakes, and three-speed automatic transmission make it easy to drive. And of course, the suspension strives for a cloud-like experience.
With a terrific luxury setup inside and out, this big motor Lincoln has a lot going for it... and it's all for a little price. That makes for a car you need to get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
