Engine: 460 V8


Interior Color:

Exterior Color:

1972 was the first year for the Lincoln Continental Mark IV, and it sure was a good year for the Continental! Luxury barges were in full effect, and stricter federal vehicle safety regulations had yet to be implemented. This attribute gave us the 1972 Continental Mark IV, an unencumbered land yacht with gorgeous lines that lacked the atrocity of five mile an hour impact bumpers. The 1972 Continental looks drastically different from 1973, and the only key difference is the bumpers! The 1973 model wears impact bumpers which make it look both longer and wider. The 1972 bumpers make the car look clean, smooth, and much more classic. In fact, for as large as it is, it almost looks sporty! The exterior of this car is clean and straight with good driver quality paint. The vinyl top is intact but showing its age. With a new vinyl top, this Lincoln would really turn heads! The wire spoke wheels are not factory, but they do work with the appearance of this car and can easily be swapped out for originals. The white paint contrasts beautifully against the dark blue interior. The interior of this Lincoln is very comfortable and almost soothing in a back in time to grandma\'s house type of way. The dark blue feels classy and clean, while providing a calm backdrop to your cross-country cruise. The interior is complete and intact with minor wear on the front seats and some plastic repair to the driver\'s door panel. Furthermore, it has that classic Lincoln smell! Under the hood is what is believed to be the original Ford monstrous 460 V8 that puts out approximately 224 horsepower. Though this car won\'t be winning any speed contests, it will haul you along leisurely wherever you are going which is exactly what it was intended to do! The engine bay, like the exterior, is pretty well original and appears just the way it should for 1972. It fires up easily, drives smooth and is a great candidate to run to the local ice cream shop with the grandkids. Overall, this Lincoln would be a good selection for a unique weekend cruiser. It is mostly clean and complete and the ultimate affordable luxury cruiser. Contact Shelton Classics & Performance at 704-663-0432 or #####@####.### for more information Title: CLEAN DOES IT WORK?
