Description for Lincoln Town Car 1978

This is your chance to own a well preserved 78 Town Car. It is the last series of the long wheelbase (127") and lengthy (233") luxury cars of the seventies decade. This particular car comes in Cinnamon Gold with matching full length vinyl top. The interior is Chamois Media Velour Cloth. Among other things standard with this town car are the twin six-way power bucket seats and distinctive body side molding. Hideaway headlamps and cornering lamps are also standard. In addition. this particular car also has tilt wheel. cruise control and AM-FM with factory 8-Track tape player (working). All of the windows including the vents work properly. The remote deck lid release works properly. These automobiles have an incredibly smooth and quiet ride because of their long wheelbase and sound deadening material installed when new. The power brakes were ahead of their time with the front disks and hydraboost (which used the power steering system hydraulics instead of vacuum for the power assist). It stops straight and true. The body panels on the car are straight and show no rust. All of the body gaps are correct with the fit of the trunk. hood and doors just as they left the factory. The paint appears to be all original and has a glossy appearance. The vinyl top is in very good condition with no cracks or rot. The chrome bumpers have absolutely no rust. All of the stainless is straight and clean. The wheel covers are very nice with no corrosion. The interior is very nice. The dash appears new which is indicative of a garaged car. The carpets and door panels are very nice. The trunk has full carpeting with spare tire curtain. The front and rear bumper extensions are in good shape. The windshield and other glass are perfect. This is a good looking car. It sets up straight on all four corners and you would be proud to drive it to shows. cruise nights or as an everyday driver. The engine. transmission and rear end on these cars are overbuilt and just about bulletproof. Problem areas: The clock does not work. The heat and AC functions all work as designed except that the AC is low on refrigerant. The AC gets cool but not cold. so will need R12 added or will need to be changed over to R134. There are rust bubbles under the vinyl top on the right front pillar. (Shown in one of the photos. ) There are minor door dings on the side of the car and some pitting on the front paint from highway use. I am listing this car for a friend who does not use the internet. I have described it to the best of my ability but please ask any questions that you may have.
