This 1979 Lincoln Continental Mark V was purchased new in Florida; the current owner (the third owner) brought the car to New York in 2018. The car is finished in white with a blue top and opera window delete over a blue interior, and it is powered by a 400ci V8 backed by a three-speed C6 automatic transmission. In preparation for sale the seller has replaced the tires, front suspension components and performed a full tuneup including a new carburetor. This Mark V is offered on behalf of the current owner with some records, and a clean New York title.
The exterior is finished in White (9D) with a blue vinyl roof and the rare opera window delete option. The seller describes touched-up chips at the top of both quarter panels and other chips above the drivers door. Rust bubbles under the paint are starting to appear on the corners of the hood A crack is noted in the vinyl top, and per the seller the top appears to have been re-dyed.
15″ steel wire wheels are fitted with new tires, and the seller notes corrosion on the inner edges of the wire wheels. The hideaway headlights have a small vacume leak and will open after 24 hours of not being used.
The cabin features blue leather upholstery with blue carpeting and a blue dashboard and steering wheel. The interior is in excellent shape and the rear seat and headliner appear in very nice original condition. A new motor for the drivers’s power window was installed by the seller.
Rectangular factory instrumentation includes an 85-mph speedometer, an analog clock, fuel gauge, and a digital miles-to-empty readout. 104k miles are shown on the five-digit odometer, approximately 2k of which reportedly were added under current ownership.
The 400ci V8 was factory rated at 159 horsepower at 3,400 rpm and 315 lb-ft of torque at 1,800 rpm, and it is backed by a three-speed C6 automatic transmission. New carb, distributer cap rotor plugs and wires and fuel filter were fitted in preparation for the sale.
