1973 Lincoln Mark IV Continental 7.5 460 from North America
Titanic of 70's
A/C clutch was bad when I bought it.
Window switches are a bit loose.
Other than that, everything looks good.
I wasn't particularly looking for a Mark IV, but this car was too good to pass up. White with black top and white leather.
This car is unlike any other when it comes to style and design. On the highway it's just as quiet as my Lexus LS400 I recently sold. Power is just enough to get it going, and it feels fine on the highway with enough left to pass other cars.
AS a vehicle it makes no sense at all. For such a huge car, the interior is a bit small, and trunk space is not the biggest either, but who cares?
I also own a Mark VII and owned a Mark VIII at some point. Driving this car is just such a breeze. I enjoy being the only one on the road in such a unique car. Sadly, most people drive cars that all look the same and have no character, but their loss is my gain.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

"Titanic of 70's"
- And it belongs in Davy Jones' locker along with the original Titanic!

Do you have a Continental, or a Mark IV? Your review is not clear, and these two vehicles are quite different.

And why is that? Because it's large and pollutes the air perhaps? Yes it does. And I'm all for saving the environment, but cars like this are heritage. They (for the most part) are not used as daily drivers and are basically just show cars or weekend cruisers. I like helping the environment, but I also like to enjoy driving as well.
