Description for Lincoln Continental 1978

Before asking questions, before bidding; please research this car! It is SO rare, that most people have NEVER heard of it before. It is the PINNACLE of American made luxury, comfort, performance, and collectability.
The 1978 Lincoln Continental Mark 5 Diamond Jubilee
This was the top car offered for 1978.
What you are looking at is the RAREST of the RARE! 1 of 1,511 ever produced!
A truly historic 1-owner classic car that is in outstanding condition. It has just 63,050 ORIGINAL miles, and is 100% RUST free and accident free. This car was ordered in early March of 1978, and was paid for in CASH! It was special ordered with EVERY SINGLE AVAILABLE OPTION, by the original owner, who was an elderly lady back in 1978. It was ordered with the largest moonroof ever put in a luxury car, at the cost of $1256 back in 1978! The car was well cared for and truly loved. The "owner-installed" light blue seat protector and arm rest/door pull towels were put in place on DAY 1. They have been in the car from the very first day. The interior is absolutely stunning, PERFECT, with no stains, tears, separations, worn spots, etc. It is as beautiful as you will ever find.
This car has the 100% original #'s matching big block 460 V8 (with optional factory dual exhaust), C6 automatic transmission, and Ford 9" rear end with 4 wheel disc brakes. The body is laser straight and is absolutely beautiful. The original full-sized deluxe spare tire has never been out of the fully carpeted deluxe trunk! New! The 1978 Diamond Jubilee Edition is Ford's 75th Anniversary edition and is special in every way.
This car amazingly has ALL of its special "Diamond Jubilee-only" accessories that today, are valued at over $2000, by themselves, and almost ALWAYS get separated over time through neglect OR to sell in order to gather maximum value.

"Now of course this isn't just any old Continental Mark V, but the Diamond Jubilee Edition, which cost an $8,000 premium (or about an additional 40% of the car's list price,) over a base Mark V. Introduced to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the Ford Motor Company, the Continental Mark V Diamond Jubilee Edition was a very special edition, with just 5,159 examples produced. Helping justify this price premium, the Diamond Jubilee Edition included normally extra-cost packages such as the appearance protection group, interior light group, headlamp convenience group, power lock convenience group, defroster group, and illuminated entry system. Other standard convinces included dual power mirrors, dual 6-way power front seats with power driver's lumbar support, power vent windows, automatic climate control, universal garage door opener, cruise control, and an AM/FM stereo with Quadrasonic 8-track system. "
"There were 5,159 Jubilee's made, 2,602 in Diamond Blue and only 1,511 with the optional moonroof like this one. Although this car came loaded with standard features not seen on other cars, like the console umbrella; leather bound owner's manual and matching tool kit; leather dashboard and all leather or ebony woodtone accents, this car has options like the the astro moonroof; the CB and matching chrome CB radio antenna; the full size dual stripe spare. This car features the front bucket seats in Wedgewood Blue luxury cloth with the Wedgewood blue broadlace inserts, and a padded leather console. The carpeting consists of a 36 oz. Tiffany cut-pile which is also matching in the trunk. An option only on the Diamond Jubilee. Other fine touches consisted of beveled instrument panel lenses; beveled opera windows with Diamond Jubilee Edition in gold script, and a simulated Diamond used for an "I" in edition. Everything is power, and everything works. As the sales brochure proclaimed: "Presenting the very special, 75th Anniversary, Diamond Jubilee Edition Continental Mark V. This is a very special automobile, an automobile that is, frankly, an indulgence in every best sense of the word. This is the Diamond Jubilee Edition Mark V. It is a unique model and it represents the most luxurious production automobile we've ever built."

This car has been in storage for MOST of its life. It is in BEAUTIFUL condition. It drives silky smoothly, shifts well, stops smooth and predictable. It has not been restored. It has not been serviced out or detailed. Those joys will be left to the winning bidder. Make no mistake, this IS the real deal. It is the hen's tooth, the Holy Grail of the American luxury car finds!


Make this dream car your reality.


If a buyer from any country other than the United States purchases the car, it could LITERALLY be the ONLY Diamond Jubilee Lincoln Mark V to ever be in your country! Think about THAT! They areTHATrare. And this 1 owner, original Texas title car,could be yours!
