This has all the great big personality of the 1970s while adding a some great modern flair in the first impression. This 1973 Lincoln Continental Mark IV is a large luxury classic cruiser with paint that radiates from across the parking lot.
The Continental has always been a great American luxury car with big block power and a TON of vintage sheetmetal. The gothic Mark IV was longer, wider, and lower than the Mark III and delivered what was arguably the best combination of full-sized luxury and muscular performance. So the upgrade to the paint seems quite appropriate here. The blue is a more modern application with a ton of depth and metallic shine. It's more attention-grabbing than the earthtones you usually got in the 1970s. Since the paint looks like a tropical ocean wave, the white vinyl roof looks like its crest. Plus, you have terrific details, like the flat front hidden headlights, smooth factory wheel covers, well-integrated taillights, and the Continental's trademark spare tire hump/continental kit. It all makes for a great classic look with added distinction.
Inside the blue packaging continues the ocean feeling. This has a well-preserved look from the button-top seats to the factory AM/FM stereo. The interior is large enough to comfortably seat six people, or both rows can fold down the armrests for four independent luxury capsules. And there are provisions for great features like air conditioning, power windows, and power locks. All the controls are built to be right at the driver's command. And it's all set in a wood-like appearance on the steering wheel and dash to complete this vintage luxury cruiser feeling.
Ford's smooth and refined 460 cubic-inch V8 provides effortless performance in the Continental. It has decent horsepower, but the real story is the torque that's enough to pull a boat. Of course you will likely never want to tow a yacht in this land-yacht, but it's this kind of available strength that allow you to smoothly cruise the boulevard. Fans of originality will love how the big blue Ford engine looks so preserved, right down to the decals. And the power steering, power brakes with discs up front, and a three-speed automatic transmission means you can ride in comfort in this classic coupe.
Vintage luxury with the right hint of modern flair: this Lincoln gets its packaging right. And it does it all for an affordable price. Call today!!!
