THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

The new-for-1970 fifth generation Lincoln Continental drew on the success of the Mark III. The first total redesign in nearly a decade, the new Continental employed body-on-frame construction, but brand engineering meant that the platform was shared with the Mercury Marquis which doomed the iconic suicide doors to history. The sedan would also inherit some of the Mark III's features, such as vacuum operated hidden headlights.

This stunning Continental Sedan was ordered new by Frank Spain's mother and has been in the family ever since. Specially fitted with a 'W.D. Spain' plaque on the dash, the car is finished in Medium Blue Metallic over a Dark Blue interior. The elder Mrs. Spain was not stingy when it came time to picking options, ticking the boxes for such features as the Power Door Lock Group, Twin Comfort Lounge Seats (for power driver and passenger seats), air conditioning, a vinyl roof, among others. With a sticker price of $5,800, the additional options would have carried the final tab to over $7,000—not chump change!

Well kept and sparingly used, under 30,000 miles appear on the odometer—a figure that is believed to be from new. Showing nicely today, it has gobs of presence and plenty of room inside for you, five friends, and all of their luggage for a three-week vacation in the commodious trunk.

As a single-family owned, low mileage, well-optioned example, the only real consideration to bear in mind is that you'll need an extra long garage to fit all 225 inches of the car under one roof and still close the door.
