Vehicle Story

This 1979 Lincoln Continental Mark V shows 22k miles and is one of 273 produced for the year in its particular paint and trim. Power is provided by a matching-numbers 400ci V8 paired with a 3-speed automatic transmission, and features include a landau roof, leather interior, factory air conditioning, a modern infotainment system with backup camera, and upgraded audio, and fob-operated automatic door and trunk locks. This white over midnight blue Mark V has been with the seller for eight years and is offered with a Marti Report and a clear Maryland title in the seller’s name.

The body wears its original white finish (5418-A) with a White Valino landau half-roof and chrome trim. Features include signature retractable quad headlamps, fender vents aft of the front tires, and a faux continental kit at the rear. 

Factory 15” wheels with polished covers wearing the Lincoln emblems are wrapped in whitewall tires installed in 2013. Very few miles have been added in the eight years since.

Interior features consist of a power Midnight Blue leather bench up front with folding armrests and matching carpet and door panels. The dash is trimmed in wood grain applique, and the car is equipped with factory air conditioning. Seller upgrades include a modern audio system wired to Bose speakers and amplifier, an integrated backup camera, and automatic door and trunk locks with a remote fob. A factory space-saver spare tire is installed in the trunk, and the seller reports that while the passenger-side mirror toggle switch is not operational, the mirror can be moved manually. 

Instrumentation is framed by a 2-spoke steering wheel and consists of an 80-mph speedometer, an analog clock, and a fuel gauge. The 5-digit odometer shows just over 22k miles, which the seller states are original to the vehicle.

The 400ci Cleveland V8 has been upgraded with electronic fuel injection, and it sends power to the rear wheels via a 3-speed C6 automatic transmission and a 2.47:1 standard axle.

Additional photos showing the condition of the underside are available in the gallery. The orange coloration on the metal components is due to oxidation not rust per the seller.

The sale includes a Marti Report.

@jboy – Does it have any fluid leaks? ...

When I pulled the car out of the garage last week for its photo shoot, my garage floor was completely dry. So the answer is no.

@MWR – Kind of short time wise for that. Guy needs a week to schedule. ...

I understand time is short, but the only thing I can tell you is that the car is very nice, I have had it for eight years, it has mostly been garage kept, the car is beautiful and runs like it is practically brand new, and auto hunters even sent their own photographer to take photos of the car. So what you see on the photos is not from me taking pictures, it’s from an assigned photographer from auto hunters, as I had no part in that process.

@MWR – Can you guarantee that the body sheet metal is intact? No bondo, no filler? Has it been repainted? ...

To the best of my knowledge, everything is intact, there is no filler or bondo that I know of, and the car has not been repainted. You may feel free during the course of the auction to send someone to inspect the car. Thanks for your question. Good luck during the auction! Harry
