1977 Lincoln Mark V 460 c.i.d. from North America
Nothing as of yet.
This is a remarkable design and a real joy to drive.
My father purchased this car brand new in 1977. He traded his Mark 4 in on it. It is a 1977 Lincoln Continental Mark V Bill Blass Limited Edition Designer Series in Midnight Blue and Camel. My father traded this car in about 1989/90 on a new Continental, and I hadn't seen the car or one like it for that matter for 24 years, then one day on my way home from work I passed a local hot rod / auto body shop, and out front for sale was a 1977 Mark V Bill Blass, and it stopped me in my tracks. I knew this had to be my father's old Lincoln, I mean how many can their be in this area, right? I walked in the shop and told the owner without even checking "that's my father's old Lincoln". He was stunned for a second, and after I told him what I knew of the car, he said I was right and I bought it back on the spot! It was purchased by an older gentleman who loved and took excellent care of it for 33 years till he passed, and the owner of the shop bought it at the estate sale. It has 46k miles; only a few more than when my dad traded it, and was in very good condition.
I have the car now, and keep it in great condition and perfect running order for car shows and Sunday drives in the country. I love this car, and would rather have it than any new car of today.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
