THE LINCOLN CONTINENTAL

When Lee Iococca of Ford discussed the styling of the new Lincoln model with top designer Gene Bordinat, he basically directed him to put a 'Rolls-Royce grille on a 1965 Thunderbird'. The result was the iconic Lincoln Mark III –a grandiose and boxy fusion of the fourth generation Lincoln Continental and the fifth generation Thunderbird, designed specifically to compete with Cadillac's popular and luxurious Eldorado. A resounding success from its initiation in September 1968, Lincoln chose an evolutionary design path for the Mark IV that debuted in 1972. Carrying a similar profile, the car grew in size slightly, incorporated opera windows in the c-pillar, and added 5mph bumpers in 1974.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This Mark IV was purchased new by an inventor in Florida. Finished in Dark Red with a white vinyl faux landau roof and a matching white and red leather interior, it was cherished and sparingly driven. The car was driven to Texas after a few years where it came into the garage of the father of the present owner. A manufacturer of coin mechanisms for newspaper racks that used the patents held by the first owner, it was natural that the car would pass to a familiar next owner.

Under the care of the current owner's family the car was only used once or twice a year and appeared occasionally at the front of local parades and the Grand Marshall's conveyance. Showing under 9,800 miles from new and in original condition, this big Lincoln is ready for its next, superfly owner.
