Car for sale | 1979 Lincoln Continental Town Coupe


This 1979 Lincoln Continental Town Coupe is for sale on Classic American.

This is a superb Mot and Tax-exempt low mileage example in truly remarkable condition throughout which would be a fabulous addition to any collection and provide tremendous enjoyment and real pride of ownership to any enthusiast. (Classic American feature car November 2020).

The car has now covered just 46,400 miles and runs and drives faultlessly, just as you would expect with such low mileage and an exceptional level of maintenance.

The steering is fingertip light, the transmission changes virtually imperceptible, the brakes surprisingly powerful and pull the car up straight and true and the air conditioning is ice cold.

This is a 1979 model year car and as such is fitted with the 6.6 litre, 400 cubic inch Cleveland V8, big brother to the legendary 351 Cleveland and provides 315lbft of torque for effortless cruising.

It is an absolute joy to be behind the wheel, just sit back and relax and let the car do the work while you watch people stop and stare, they have never seen anything like this.

The ride is superbly cosseting, progress impressively quiet with barely a murmur from the big V8 and negligible wind noise or tyre noise even at 70mph, absolutely fabulous. Please note the car is 19.5 feet long and 7 feet wide so you will need a large garage to accommodate it.

This was the final year of production and the last of the full-size Lincoln motor cars. Specification of the period to include climate control air conditioning, electric seats, power windows – including electric quarter lights, cruise control, original radio working perfectly, electric aerial, aluminium alloy wheels which are unmarked and fitted with New whitewall tyres all round, (fitted July 2020).

An outstanding motor car throughout and with staggeringly low mileage, there really cannot be another like this, thanks for reading Stuart. PS Forgot to say, new rear gas shockers fitted Feb 2021.
