GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1978 Lincoln Mark 5 for your consideration. The Continental Mark V is a personal luxury coupe that was marketed by the Lincoln division of Ford Motor Company from the 1977 to 1979 model years in North America. Following the success of the Continental Mark IV, the Mark V was derived from the same chassis architecture (shared with the Ford Thunderbird) with an extensive update to the exterior and interior. The sharply-creased body introduced an exterior design theme used on many Lincoln vehicles throughout the 1980s. For 1980, the Continental Mark V was replaced by the Continental Mark VI. Based on the Ford Panther platform introduced for the 1979 model year, the downsized Mark VI saw significant reductions in its exterior dimensions in the interest of fuel economy. All Continental Mark Vs were assembled at the now-closed Wixom Assembly Plant in Wixom, Michigan, alongside the standard Lincoln Continental and Continental Town Car and Town Coupe.

This beauty is black on black and presents very well. These large cars look, drive and perform like pure luxury. The car also has a black soft top. The '78 Mark 5 is a great example of the “land yacht” luxury cars of the time. Its powered by its 460 v8 paired to a column shift automatic transmission. It features AM/FM Quadrasonic stereo, dual exhaust, whitewall tires, cruise control, Cartier clock, power windows, power locks, power steering, air conditioning, and more. The car has been properly maintained over the years and remains in excellent condition. The current owner has enjoyed the car for the last 5 years and acquired it from Illinois.
