Ever wish you could go back in time and get the car you always longingly admired, or purchase the one you always regretted selling?  Now you can with this stunning 8,400 original mile Lincoln Continental Town Coupe.

Finished in lustrous Cordovan Metallic with a complementing Valino grain Dark Cordovan coach roof and Cordovan Valleao velour interior, this car’s handsome appearance is further enhanced by optional Medium Champagne pinstripes and forged aluminum wheels.  The exterior finish has a mirror-like reflection, as does its abundance of chrome and bright-work.  Similarly, the interior of this car is in virtually showroom condition, and the interior door panels, seating areas, dashboard, and headliner appear as new.

Aside from being a presence on the road, what makes “a Lincoln a Lincoln” is an abundance of comfort and convenience features, and this car does not disappoint.  Power features and optional equipment include the following:

  • Power windows
  • Power vent windows
  • Power door locks
  • 6-way power seats
  • Power antenna
  • AM/FM stereo with 8-track cassette
  • Remote trunk release
  • Speed control
  • Automatic temperature control
  • Tilt steering wheel
  • Cartier digital clock
  • Rear window defroster
  • Integrated coach lamps

All options work as they should, but it should be noted that the air conditioning does not currently blow ice cold.  In addition, minor imperfections in the paint do not detract from the overall appearance of this car.

In addition to having only 8,400 original miles, other factors contribute to the collectability of this Town Coupe—one of which being its rarity among other 1979 Continentals.  Of the total production of 92,600 1979 Continentals, only 16,142 (17%) were two door models, and even fewer were Town Coupes, making this car quite rare.  Another factor contributing its rarity is that it was produced for export to Canada, as its kilometer-focused speedometer and odometer indicate.

Powered by its original 400 CID V-8 engine and 3-speed automatic transmission, this car runs and drives as well as it looks, both a testament to the care this car has received by its owners.  Originally delivered to Hamilton, Ontario in October of 1979, this car remained in Canada only one year prior to being shipped to Bradenton, Florida, where it remained for the next 31 years.  You will also appreciate the original owner’s manual, warranty identification card, and sales brochure that will be provided with sale.
