Gateway Classic Cars of Scottsdale is happy to be offering this mostly original 1978 Lincoln Town Car for sale in our Arizona showroom. This Town Car is one of the last TRUE Survivors! When this car was New Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind and Jaws 2 were the big Blockbusters! For years, the Lincoln Town Car has been the epitome of a "car built for executives" since it's inception. The original Gold Poly paint still looks acceptable, but it has faded and has some road rash in places. The "Ultra Velour" interior is a complimentary gold color and looks comfortable, just like your living room sofa. It remains in excellent condition. The vinyl top is a pleasing contrast to the rest of the car. 1978 was Ford's Diamond Anniversary (75 years) and this was the second to the last year that the Town Car was really a "full sized car". How's this for specs...127.2" wheelbase, 233" overall length, 4958 lbs with fluids and a 460-4V engine cranking out 156 HP. When driving this vintage luxury car, you'll soon realize that the definition of "luxury" when it comes to automobiles from this era versus today is really different. This car has only had one owner and the owner claims the mileage is original, but this has not been confirmed by GCC. There are a growing number of collectors gravitating toward the luxury American cars of the 1970's, and this Lincoln fits the bill perfectly. Don't miss buying a low mile, one owner, mostly original 1978 Lincoln Town Car for sale right now in our facility. For more information or to schedule an appointment to view this vehicle in person, please call the Scottsdale showroom at 623-900-4884 or email us directly at scottsdale@gatewayclassiccars.com

1978 Lincoln Continental  Mark V

1978 Lincoln Continental Mark V


Engine: V8 OHC
Transmission: 3 Speed Automatic
Mileage: 21,580 ( actual )

In the 70's the Lincoln Mark series was the pinnacle of luxury. This was Ford Motor Company's way to compete with Cadillac and a very successful way at that. The Mark V screams 70's luxury, from its long straight body, to the hideaway head lamps, to the pillow top seating, or even the opera windows. The size, weight, and presence of the vehicle lets you know that someone important is behind the wheel. Although the car is something to admire, behind the wheel is the best place to be. The bench seat is as comfortable as your easy chair at home, the steering is light enough you could steer with one finger, and the ride is so soft it feels like you're floating down the road. This is a car made to cover long spans of roadway. Powering the car along is a 400 CID V8 backed by a silky smooth 3 speed automatic transmission. The original owner ordered this one with plenty of goodies including A/C, AM/FM, cruise control, hub caps, power brakes, power steering, power locks, power windows, power seats, tilt/telescopic wheel, seat belts, cloth interior, and white wall radial tires. These late 70's cruisers have a great following and may be the next high dollar classic. This one is ready for the collector, or simply to be driven and appreciated. You can view this 1978 Lincoln Mark V in greater detail including HD pictures and an HD video of it running and driving at Gatewayclassiccars.com. If you are interested in purchasing this vehicle or have more questions regarding it please call us at (303) 872-4722 or email us at Denver@gatewayclassiccars.com.

1978 Lincoln Continental Mark V


Engine: 460 CID V8
Transmission: Automatic
Mileage: 24,821 ( undocumented )

Our newest arrival at the Gateway Classic Cars Chicago, IL showroom is not for the average auto collector. At GCC, we embrace the enthusiasts that hold a devotion to big, beautiful cars from off the beaten path. When selecting American luxury, many have placed their votes with GM’s division of Cadillac, only to find themselves lost in a sea of trend followers. However, throughout the years, if you wanted to be taken seriously as a true individual with class, you rocked a Lincoln. Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Babe Ruth, Frank Lloyd Wright, and countless US Presidents would all agree with this opinionated declaration. Take a long gaze at this gorgeous 1978 Lincoln Mark V. With an impeccably clean interior and exterior, this is a shining example of everything previously mentioned; Command, luxury, and innovation. This year of the Mark V was the very last that offered the iconic 460 CID big block as an option. Like many other Mark V’s, this one was custom-ordered by the original owner to include cruise control, power windows, power brakes, power steering, power mirrors, and even an 8-Track radio. It continued life with a second owner, and currently awaits a third under our roof here in Chicago. You can see this lovely Mark V in greater detail in our Chicago location or at www.GatewayClassicCars.com. Please contact 708-444-4488 or Chicago@gatewayclassiccars.com with inquiries.

Gateway Classic Cars of Chicago is proud to offer a handsome 1977 Lincoln Mark V. In the 1970s, a luxury car was all about presence. With gas costing just a few dimes per gallon, an expanding network of interstate highways, and a surviving obsession with cubic inches, this Lincoln is the epitome of 1970s American excess. With a body totaling nearly 20 feet long, and a hood about the size of a queen sized mattress, there is no shortage of... car. Pop that massive hood and you'll uncover a 460 CID V8 which is more than capable of pulling this land yacht down the highway in style and comfort. The transmission is of course and automatic, and power everything (nearly) leaves the driver in control, yet completely relaxed. This is the type of car you can steer with one finger. This particular Mark V sports a white exterior with a white landau top. The interior features white leather upholstery to match as well as some blue accent pieces for a little contrast. The car is in good surviving original condition and has only 80,773 showing on the odometer. The car runs and drive's nicely and would make a nice first collector car for someone, or a nice stylish daily driver which still has most of the modern creature comforts we've come to expect.
