The Lincoln Continental name has long been synonymous with luxury, quality, and elegance.  For 1972, Lincoln raised the bar with its optional Town Car package, which consisted of even higher levels of refinement.  Buyers who elected this package for their new Continentals were rewarded with numerous additional appointments that were either optional, or unavailable, on other models, all contributing to a more satisfying ownership experience.

This stately 1972 Lincoln Town Car is finished in lustrous White, and features a contrasting Black Cavalry twill grain vinyl top and Black leather interior.  The finish has a beautiful luster that is further enhanced by an abundance of chrome and brightwork that is in excellent condition, a testament of the care this Virginia car has received throughout its life.  You will also appreciate its optional front bumper guards and vinyl insert body side moldings, which provide additional distinction.

The interior tells a similar story of quality and care.  Its leather seating areas are soft and supple, and are devoid of imperfection.  Similarly, the interior door panels, carpeting, dashboard, steering wheel, and headliner are virtually free of wear.  Rich simulated rosewood trim and chrome-bezeled instrumentation house a rarity—a full complement of gauges—not warning lights—including amperage, fuel, oil pressure, and temperature.  Town Car interior upgrades, above what was included in the standard Continental, include the following:

  • Power vent windows
  • Leather seating areas with unique sew style
  • Full-width front seat head rests
  • Long-sheared cut-pile carpeting
  • Glove box vanity mirror
  • Luggage compartment and spare tire carpeting

You will also appreciate the following standard and optional comfort and convenience items, including the following:

  • Power windows
  • Power door locks
  • Power trunk release
  • Power antenna
  • Power 6-way seat
  • Automatic headlamp dimmer
  • Automatic speed control
  • AM radio/StereoSonic 8-track system
  • Tilt steering wheel
  • Automatic temperature control

With the exception of the clock, all power options work as they should, including the ice cold air conditioning.

Under the hood, you will find a 460 CID V-8 engine mated to a three speed SelectShift automatic transmission.  The car runs and drives as well as it looks, having just completed a 700 mile road trip during which it performed flawlessly.  It also benefits from a fresh oil change, new air filterignition tuningsealing of the transmission and vacuum reservoir, and rebuilding of the power window gears.  Having just 78,000 original miles, this well maintained car will delight for years to come.

It should be noted that there are some minor dings on the top of the trunk lid and a small crease in the right rear fender, but these items do not detract from the overall appearance of the car.

Included with sale are the original owner’s manual and two sets of original Lincoln keys and key fobs.

If a hard-to-come-by early 1970s Lincoln in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition is what you desire, this 1972 Town Car is for you!
