1978 Lincoln Continental Town Car 460 4V, 7.5L V8 from North America
Great Old Machine of Yesteryear!
Replaced the water pump at 35,000 miles.
Replaced the water hoses at 30,000 miles.
Air Conditioner had to be re-charged often.
Power mini-Vent Window on driver side door was always coming out of the bracket.
The old Lincoln would have been in better shape had it been driven regularly, but it sat around too much, and therefore the gaskets and rubber began to break down. The car had the optional 460 V8 with the 4-bbl carb on it, and it was made for "road use" not running around town. It always drove like a dream even at the older age. I replaced the tires (original stayed until the car was about 22 yrs old) and it would ride on the expressways with the best of them! Wish they still made the Lincolns like the old 70's models!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
