Gateway Classic Cars of Scottsdale is pleased to present for sale, on consignment, this stellar 1978 Lincoln Continental Diamond Jubilee Edition! The 5th generation Continental went from 1970 to 1979. Although shorter in wheelbase and slightly narrower than 1958-1960 Lincolns, the addition of 5-mph bumpers make 1977-1979 Lincolns the longest automobiles ever produced by Ford Motor Company. Grab your anchor and your Boat Captain’s Hat and take this 7.5L, 460 cubic inch V8 for a cruise! The 3 speed automatic transmission and engine were both reported as not having been rebuilt and the mileage is undocumented. From the looks of this car, it has spent a lot of time being preserved indoors. The Diamond Jubilee Editions commemorated Ford’s 75th Anniversary and was an $8,000 upgrade over the standard Continental Mark V. Finished in Jubilee Gold over Tan cloth interior, this combo just screams the 70’s. Features and Options include Air Conditioning, AM/FM Radio, Cloth Interior, Power Brakes, Power Locks, Power Seats, Power Windows, Power Steering, Seatbelts, Tilt Steering, Cartier Gauges, Moonroof, Spare Tire, Jack and Spare full size wheel. With the low production numbers, this car is sure to be a collector.
