For sale in our Chicago showroom is this original, one owner 1978 Lincoln Towncar. This full size sedan not only is the epitome of vintage luxury and still has room for 6 adults and all of their respective luggage. Take a peek inside that trunk and you will see enough room for several golf bags or plenty of groceries. This car has traveled under 40,000 miles since new and is being sold by the original owner who has meticulously maintained this car from new. When new, these vehicles had a sticker price of right around $22,000, which made it the most expensive American-made vehicle of that year. Taking inflation into effect, this Lincoln would cost almost $84,000 in US currency today. Luckily, we aren’t crazy enough to ask for that much. The 7.5 liter V8 engine purrs smoothly at idle and hums quietly down the highway, comfortable at any speed.

The smooth Maroon metallic exterior features a matching leather interior inviting you to sit for hours as you travel to wherever the road takes you. The underside is just as clean as the top showing minimal signs of any use at all. The glass is crystal clean and all the windows roll up and down without hesitation. Check out those oval Opera Windows with the Lincoln emblem proudly displayed. Any imperfections in the road are simply ignored by the smooth suspension. This classy Continental is a throwback to a time when American vehicles were at the top of the luxury game, and a Lincoln was a status symbol to be reckoned with.

This is a wonderful representation of what it meant to be a high-roller in the late 70’s and is as smooth as they come. Options include: Air-Conditioning, Alloy Wheels, AM/FM radio, Leather Interior, Cruise Control, Power Brakes, Power Door Locks, Power Seats, Power Steering, Power Windows, Seat Belts, Tilt Steering Wheel, White Walls, and a Numbers Matching Drive train.
