1978 Lincoln Continental Mark V Your first impression when you approach this 1978 Lincoln Town Coupe is that it\'s simply mammoth. On a 127-inch wheelbase, it rivals the biggest cars of the \'50s, and today anything with 127 inches between the wheels is a full-sized dually pickup. In fact, this car is more than 18 inches longer than a new Lincoln Navigator! But it isn\'t merely big for the sake of being big, it has style and proportion and a gothic look that has aged pretty well. These cars have enjoyed a nice uptick in values ever since the guys in the Scorsese flick Casino were motoring around in such things, and in 1978, if you owned one of these, you had well and truly made it to the top. For consignment taking up significant real estate in the Classic Auto Mall, is this 1978 Lincoln Continental Mark V. This car is among the last of the no-holds-barred, full-size luxury cars, representing the pinnacle of American motoring at the time. At 230 inches long, this Mark V is the largest two-door coupe ever sold by Ford Motor Company, with the 233-inch long two-door and four-door Lincoln Continental sedans (produced alongside it) as the only longer vehicle ever marketed by Ford. Distinguished by its sharp-edged exterior design, design themes of the Mark V would be adapted onto Lincoln vehicles throughout the 1980s. Exterior Long straight rust-free steel panels, with well minded gaps, are all bathed in Gold Cream paint. This paint shows some areas of minor crazing and cracking, but the car retains its shine. On the backs of the wheel wells, there is some invasive rust which has invaded itself under the paint, and created bubbling, but it is very slight at this point. Hidden headlights, a big chromed radiator surrounding, cathedral lights flanking on all 4 corners, and some chrome trimmings running the length of this car several times, it\'s looking very proud. Bumpers show some slight wear, and the finish is crazed just like the paint. Other trimmings and badging is all good condition. On top of the passenger compartment, is a rarely seen moon roof option. Just behind this option, is a cream vinyl landau top, with an oval B pillar opera window. The top is good, with just a slight cracking in the center of the rear window surround just above the massive trunk lid. Square and rectangle design chop nice sections into this car\'s design, and bottoming off this monster is a set of body matching and polished turbine style wheels with a large chromed nut hub in the centers complete with the continental star within a black background inside the nut. Interior A swing of the doors and we have padded vinyl in faux leather pattern cream, aiding tastefully with molded vinyl, and wood appliqué burl panels which house some of the many convenience options available at the driver\'s fingertips. Gold carpet is on the bottoms and courtesy lighting makes sure you do not get out and place a Bruno Magli into a surprise puddle. Rich cream leather covers a split bench front seat setup and talk about padding aplenty you will not go without on these seats. Several padded pillow sections are presenting with some dark brown inset belts between the inserts and bolsters. A big fold down central armrest is noted, and the rear bench also does not have us wanting for more luxury, matching the front seating. All seats have nice aging with some folds and slight wear showing. For the dash more feathered wood grained appliqué with squared off white faced gauges, chromed slider levers, and lots-o-warning lights. An original steering wheel with more wood appliqué is in front and has cruise control levers within the spokes. Gold carpet floods the floors, and has a few stains and spots, but no tears or areas of overwhelming wear. Headliner is nice and tight. Drivetrain With wires and hoses aplenty along with some blue painting for the engine block and valve covers plus the air cleaner, we note a 460ci V8 insertion. 4 barrels of carburet
