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
