1978 Lincoln Continental Town Car Sedan The Continental Mark Series began with the Continentals built from 1939 until 1948. After an eight year hiatus, the Continental MK II was introduced as a stand-alone brand which built this car from 1956 until 1957. The Continental MK III...another of the world\'s most beautiful designs challenged the Cadillac Eldorado running almost neck-to-neck. The Continental MK IV stole the entire world\'s heart from 1972 until 1976; it IS the world\'s most beautiful automotive design. And last but not least...the Continental MK V precludes the notable Continental Mark Series built in the traditional manner. For consignment, we\'re nearing the end of the true American large luxury cars and now coming to us to grace our Hallowed Halls, we give you this long, big, huge, wonderfully comfortable, opulent, steel paneled, Chamois 4 door Lincoln Town Car from 1978 that has always been garage kept. It\'s also showing 82,707 miles, but due to the title reading mileage exempt we cannot verify these as actual, but one quick look tells us it is. Things don\'t get much bigger than this, but with big cars comes big power and big luxury...read on. Exterior Dressed up to the nines this square and rectangle gentleman wears a sport coat in Light Chamois and lots of trimmings in near perfect chrome. With barely a ding on its straight steel large panels, and fastidiously minded gaps, you have arrived. The big square front chromed grille and old fashion styled radiator surround topped with the Lincoln star and flanked by hidden headlights, corner signal lights wrapped in horizontal ribbings, and a massive mirror-like bumper below, this is only the beginning. Moving back, we can take a drive on the large hood and front quarters which have below the belt line trim in chrome and beige vinyl, along with some running lights, wheel well trim surrounds and a brown dual pinstripes. This drops us off at the front doors, straight and true, more below the belt line trim, pinstripe and now rocker trim moving rearward to two more doors. This rear set of doors backs up to the rear quarter, and the 2 bedroom apartment sized trunk with a single cathedral styled rear taillight on each corner. Another big pristine bumper, and some rear panel trimmings and a horizontal reflector is way back, and up top a padded vinyl landau styled top for the rear passenger area roof. This sports tinted glass on the sides and rear, an opera light on the B pillar and an oval opera window in the C pillar. Standard Lincoln wheel covers in their full splendor cover all 4 corners, and now you too can be the escort to the Belle-of-the-ball. Interior A fine mix of tufted crushed velour, tan smooth vinyl, wood appliqué trimmings and of course more chrome, more appliqué, and some tan carpet on the bottoms, and we have just opened the door. Here a plethora of toggles await your fingers to tickle and actuate the windows, locks, mirrors, and seats. Slipping inside on the driver\'s side I can view the long hood and it actually makes me feel important. I also feel comfort due to the pillowed, tufted, dual cushioned, buttoned crushed velour big daddy bucket seats dyed in wonderful tan. Massive armrests fold down, and I could nearly fall asleep, although there is not a TV to prompt me to do so...but I digress. Looking forward toward the original dash, plenty more wood appliqué in a fanned burl grain houses the instruments and knobs and switches. This plays with some more tan covered vinyl and a padded dashtop also in tan. Super clean would best describe this dash, which has a brushed aluminum speedometer located directly in front of the original steering wheel. Climate controls, power antenna, AM/FM/Cassette radio, and a Cartier clock, all are inserted for your pleasures while driving this land yacht. Wonderful fluffy tan carpet covers all floors front and rear, and a really nice tan headliner in tight vinyl is covering the inside of the ro
