The bright paint, road-owning size, and big V8 all remind you that the 1979 Lincoln Continental Town Car is a true classic premium cruiser. And when the presentation is both loaded and vintage, it feels like driving a luxury time capsule.
The Medium Beryl paint is a more modern respray of the factory-correct color. It's part of an investment in making sure this has an upper-class presentation. After all, Lincoln has always been a premium nameplate, but not all of them were created equal. The Town Car trim on the Continental was the top of the line. This shows its regal presence with details like the coach lamps and a vinyl roof that coordinates in aqua. It's all quite nice because this sedan has seen proper care. We're told it was with the first owner until 2015. And its second (and only other) owner kept up the tradition of care, including making solid investments in 2020 that included a respray and a new vinyl top. Plus, these knew how to really bring style to the streets with hidden headlights, a Rolls-Royce inspired grille, and bright wraparound bumpers. These join the sharp lines and tight body panels for a look that still earns respect today.
While muscle car lovers look for triple-black, premium classic lovers will take note of the paint, roof, and interior that give you a triple-blue. Two rows of pillow-top leather seats prove that this sedan is more comfortable than some people's living rooms. In fact, a full-size car in the 1970s means you also have more room than some people's homes! That's how you define classic American luxury, and so this is a sedan that family and friends will love to go for a ride. But even when you're just going solo, this Lincoln is great. Part of the Town Car package means front seats with dual folding armrests and individual power adjustment. So it's a very personal driver's experience. The opulent dash is built around you with an easy reach to the power windows, cruise control, tilt steering column, remote mirror control, and provisions for R134a air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again). And overall, we're impressed with the preservation of the full package, right down to the full courtesy lighting that greets you when the door opens.
The engine bay continues the time capsule style, including the correct-displacement 400 cubic-inch powerplant. It's related to the high-performance Cleveland V8s that went into legendary muscle cars. But in this larger displacement, it was refined to deliver the necessary torque to move this large sedan in dignified comfort. This has been nicely maintained so it looks great and fires up readily. It also has power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a three-speed automatic transmission. It all makes for the kind of luxury that can easily take you in comfort to car shows as far away as you want.
This is a two-owner true American luxury cruiser. There are a few details that you may want to restore, like the headlight doors, air conditioning, rear power windows, or the power locks. These are the kind of details that don't prevent you from enjoying a Sunday drive today, and you can utilize the value price to budget for what you may want to renovate down the road. So when you want a car that's supple, vintage, and memorable, call today!
