1979 Lincoln Mark Series Bill Blass Edition Additional Info:

This fantastic Continental is an extremely well preserved survivor that was owned by the same family for 35 of its 38-year existence. If you're looking for a collectible that's not only vintage but unique and not only unique but comfortable you'll have a hard time finding ANYTHING cooler. '70s metal features some of the most ornate styling from the Malaise Era. And this coupe's eye-catching combination of White and Midnight Blue Metallic paint proves the perfect canvas for far-flung detail. The... car's untraditional 2-tone pigment is decidedly flashy proving that variety is the spice of life. With that paint comes vast sheetmetal which thanks to decades of great maintenance appears straight clean and almost as crisp as the day the Motor City stamped it. And overall this Lincoln's looks defy the decades its VIN suggests. Motivation is provided by Ford's 400 cubic inch Cleveland V8 which according to the factory twists a conservative 159 horsepower into 315 ft./lb. of smooth torque. Behind that motor Ford's reliable and sturdy C6 3-speed automatic transmission drives a 9-inch axle and mild 2.75 gears. That powertrain hangs in a heavy-duty suspension which mixes sturdy disc brakes with requisite power steering. And everything rolls on stylish alloy turbines which spin 225/75R15 Hankook Optimo whitewalls around gold-stamped center caps. Decked in bright white leather the Bill Blass-themed interior is just as cool as the rest of the car. Pillowy seats are nicely padded pieces that feel every bit as supple as they look. In front of those mitts a wood-trimmed dash hangs an optional CB radio and an optional Quadrasonic 8-track player amid factory climate control and conservative factory telemetry. And in front of the driver an attractive steering wheel highlights factory Speed Control.
