1979 Lincoln Continental Collector Series

Gateway Classic Cars Dallas is excited to have a super special item in inventory! One look at this long dark Blue 1979 Lincoln Continental Collector's Series limousine, and you know the boss has arrived. It's the perfect well preserved to deliver the best color combo, a loaded A/C interior, a big V8 under the hood, and an obtainable price. It's good to be the boss. The Collector Series was the top of the line Lincoln, so this Limo carries all those top of the line ammenaties.

Lincoln has always been a premium nameplate, but not all of them were created equal. You're looking at a custom-built stretch limousine crafted by Executive Coach Builders. Those who know the limo business understand these people have been around for half a century, and they are one of the few craftsman shops to still be around today. It's this long-lasting quality reputation is why the sheet metal looks like the Lincoln factory made it all. Of course, it also helps that this one has been super well kept, all original, and with the same owner for decades. That's what makes this one so retro and cool all in the first impression. Plus, the concealed headlights, full vinyl roof, and a Rolls-Royce style grille give this an international luxury flair that lives up to the Continental name. All the details are correct, too - from the turbine-style wheel covers, to the little guards over the parking lights. We all love the razor-sharp fender creases that are accented by the trim line running from parking light to taillight. It's true full-size artistry on wheels.

The blue cloth interior is original to the car, and since it has only averaged around 2200 miles annually, there has been little time to wear it in. Like a true '70s luxury machine, the pillow-top design is just as comfy as it looks. The custom stretch setup leaves plenty of room in the back for a custom set of reverse facing seats with a wet bar in-between. And because this one aims to be as retro as possible, you still have great features on display like a seperate AM FM radio, portable tube TV, and even a '70s-style car phone! While this was originally purchased by the back seat occupant (it was built for the founder of Royal Bank) today you're likely going to be enjoying the drive of this classic. So luckily it's just as luxurious up front. There's a split bench with armrest that power adjusts to your perfect driving position. Plus, it has other premium items like a power windows, power locks, cruise control, and cold factory air conditioning. And they all work exactly as it should in this well-preserved Lincoln. But if you really want to understand the level of care that has gone into this limo, just look at the dashboard. Beyond just the amazing condition of the wood paneling.

With a luxury car so well preserved inside and out, it's great to have what is believed to be the original motor (per the consignor) still in the engine bay. Ford's 400 cubic-inch power plant is related to the high-performance Cleveland V8s that went into legendary muscle cars. But in this larger displacement, it was refined to deliver the necessary torque to move this large limo in quiet comfort. This has been nicely maintained so it looks great and fires up on command. Plus, it has power steering, front disc brakes, and a three-speed automatic transmission. So it provides an executive level of effortlessness from behind the wheel.

This one is going to make a scene wherever it goes - no matter if you love a unique classic or just want to earn extra money with the coolest retro limo around. So if you like the attention and craftsmanship of this professional car, don't miss this deal. Call now!
