1978 Lincoln Continental Town Coupe in Mesa Arizona

 Vehicle Description
This is the last of the big, comfortable Lincoln coupes. This triple-black 1978 Lincoln Continental Town Coupe is a rare two-door produced in the final year such a substantial car came with the big block V8 engine from the Ford Motor Company. br / brbr You might come across a few Lincoln coupes from 1978, but those will usually be Mark V cars. This is the plusher and rarer Town Coupe. These cars look especially nice because they take the regal square-jaw lines of the Continental sedan, and apply them to a more personal luxury vehicle. 1978 was a pivotal year because everyone knew the days of the large personal luxury cruisers were numbered. Cadillac had downsized its model line, and Lincoln also was not going to be able to offer its largest Continental ever for much longer. In fact, we didnt know it then, but this would be the last time an optional big block would be available...but more on that in a moment. This coupe comes in its factory-correct black, and its even believed to be the original paint application. Today it retains a nice high gloss finish that makes this car standout for more than just its size. Its also quite nice to have the matching black vinyl half-roof in pristine condition. Plus, the big chrome bumpers, Rolls-Royce style grille, and full trim package keeps an exceptional presentation. So you can tell that this special coupe was properly / brbr Open the door and youll see the kind of luxury that could only come from the 1970s. The black leather seats are exceptionally nice with the pillow top design that is just as comfy as it looks. There are even armrests, front and rear, for true individual luxury. Vintage luxury is all about the atmosphere it creates, and so you a have plenty of matching wood-like trim; the front seats individually power adjust; and there are the nice factory extras like cruise control, the AM/FM stereo, and power windows. If you want to invest in restoring service to pieces like the air conditioning, headlight door controls, or Cartier clock, they continue to appear quite complete and ready. And overall, you can see that there has been a responsible effort to make sure this classic luxury Lincoln retains a premium time capsule atmosphere. br / brbr Fords smooth and refined 460 cubic-inch V8 provides effortless performance in the Continental Town Coupe. This was the final year for the big block option, which is always welcomed in the engine bay because it has enough torque to pull a boat. Of course, you will likely never want to tow a yacht in this big bodied car, but its this kind of available strength that allow you to smoothly, and quickly, cruise away from the stoplight. Fans of originality will love how the big blue Ford engine looks absolutely correct, right down to the decals. What you dont see is a newer Pypes dual exhaust under the car that gives this big dog a little extra bite. While this is the perfect car for the drive-in (after all, its interior is more comfortable than any movie theater seat), theres much more to this coupe. Its got power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a three-speed automatic transmission. This is the kind of luxury that can easily take you in comfort to car shows as far away as you / brbr This the triple black Continental Town Coupe has all the great stuff you love about the 70s, an its in a package that remains exceptionally comfortable. This is big luxury for a little price. Call today!!!br/br/
