1977 Lincoln Mark V Gold/Creme Luxury Group 460 V8 from North America
I Love my Lincoln Continental Mark V
Very soon after I bought the Lincoln the radio stopped working.
The Cartier time piece in the dash didn't work when I got the car.
The Landau roof is pulling away from the opera windows.
There is a shimmy at 70mph.
It idles rough.
On a twenty nine year old car this is great! Only a few things wrong with the car, and I will correct them all this summer.
This car is the most beautiful car on the road.
Whenever I drive it people turn and look.
This car is huge! When I first pulled it out of the garage this year I had to get out twice to make sure I had enough room on the other side.
Driving this car is a blast, It floats down the road like a dream. Despite the massive weight the car feels powerful and handles better than my smaller car.
I hope never to part with my Mark V and to buy more.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I know that the Mark V was made only between 1977 and 1979. Either you have a Mark IV, or a different year.

I am the owner of this car. The question asked what year the car was manufactured. My car was manufactured in November 1976. This is why it was classified as a 1976 Mark V.

Regarding your Lincoln Mark V manufactured in November of 1976. New car models are typically made for sale in September of the calender year. This is also the case with the Lincoln Mark series. The previous comment that your car is a 1977, 1978 or 1979 is accurate. The manufacture date indicated that it is a 1977 Mark V.
I currently own an immaculate 1976 Mark IV with the Gold/Cream option. I previously owned a 1977 Mark V. Both are beautiful automobiles. I can't really say if I like one better than the other.
