A terrific coordinating color combo, big V8 power, and all the luxury you want, right down to the A/C interior - this 1976 Lincoln Mark IV is a big classic premium coupe that has a such a high degree of originality that you know it has been treated with respect from day one.
This coupe wears its white paint with distinction. Most of it is the same application the factory did nearly 45 years ago, but when you invest in quality and only go to quality homes, you get a car that still has a terrific gloss and shine today. And we're a big fan of a color-matched vinyl roof. It really defines a premium classic American look. The Mark IV was all about being bold with its luxury. The front and rear bumpers both have sharply pointed ends that add extra definition to the sharply pointed fenders. The grille borrows a page from Rolls-Royce. And the red pinstripe loves to highlight the crisp lines of the car. The consignor states that the odometer reflects actual mileage, and that would represent averaging only about 1,400 miles annually. And the way all the distinctive pieces of this car have been so well preserved reinforce this low mileage and well-respected life so far.
In the same way the red pinstripe adds distinction to the exterior white, the red inside really makes this one a standout. And low mileage means little seat time, so you have a two-tone that remains vibrant. And also just like the exterior, you can see Lincoln paid attention to the details. You see it on the seats where the luxurious white button-top leather is augmented by sporty red streaks, and you even have red seatbelts to match. This is all attributable to the Lipstick Edition! The dash, carpeting, and door panels all remain well-preserved for a fantastic total look. And you'll love this for more than just appearance. These Mark IVs were all about an executive-level of luxury, and so they came with a ton of terrific features including power windows, power mirrors, power locks, tilt steering column, cruise control, and power front seats so you can easily find your ideal driving position. Plus, the signature Cartier clock is still in the dash. There are also some well-integrated upgrades that make this a nice modern cruiser without jeopardizing the vintage atmosphere. This includes the retro-style radio that a modern AM/FM digital tuner with aux input, and the air condition is now blowing cold with modern R134a.
The Mark IV series is also coveted for offering the big daddy of big blocks. The 460 cubic-inch V8 under the hood has the same high level of preservation as the rest of the car, right down to the factory decals that are still in place. So it's no wonder this is believed to be the original powerplant to the car. These are famous for their torque, and so it knows how to move this large coupe with the kind of effortless performance you expect. And the supple ride, power steering, three-speed automatic transmission, and power brakes w/discs up front all combine to deliver the kind of driving experience that upholds Lincoln's luxury reputation.
This car has a well-respected distinction from every angle. So if you understand what premium vintage luxury is all about, you don't want to miss this coupe. Call today!!!
