1972 Lincoln Continental Description

This 1972 Lincoln Continental Town Car is about paying a little and getting a lot. It's a survivor-grade luxury sedan that provides effortless power from the original 460 V8, incomparable ride quality, and a bigger-than-life persona.The appeal here is as clear as black & white, literally. This Lincoln avoided the polarizing earthtones of the '70s, and instead it has the kind of hues that represent timeless luxury we even believe much of this paint is original to the car. Lasting over four decades with this kind of luster means a lifetime of great care. The white still has a porcelain-like quality, and the luxury vinyl roof is complete and soft to the touch. So, the kind of luxury you expected from Lincoln in '72 remains today. But it's more than just color that makes it distinctive. This is a year for lovers of intricate design. For example,the headlight doors match the grille to give this executive sedan a sporty appeal. There is a bright trim line that starts at the front fender and follows the sheetmetal crease all the way along the Continental's distinctive profile. And because it was built before new bumper laws, they fit flush with the body as an integral part of the design. It was all part of Lincoln's upper class image, so it's essential that it's as all as crisp and pristine as you see on this example.The black leather interior is part of an expensive original option, and it has been preserved to like-new condition. So the moment you sink into the armchair-like comfort, you are transformed into a world of luxury. In fact, with the condition of the carpets, door panels, headliner, and wood paneling, it feels sophisticated and elegant like an upscale private club. And just like the best exclusive memberships, there are plenty of perks. This includes power windows, power locks, power seats, the original AM/FM stereo radio, and factory air conditioning. The back seat is as spacious as many full-sized cars today, and the giant trunk is outfitted with more plush carpeting and a full-sized spare with its own matching cover.Ford's smooth and refined 460 cubic inch V8 provides effortless performance in the Continental. This was the beginning of the lower compression era, and since the motor is believed to be original, that's a good thing. That means it's a survivor that's built to handle unleaded. Plus, the big V8 retains enough torque to pull a boat. Of course you will likely never want to tow a yacht in this big bodied car, but it's this kind of available strength that allows you to smoothly, and quickly, cruise away from the stoplight. Fans of originality will love how the big blue Ford engine looks as factory-fresh as the exterior of this sedan. What you don't see is a new exhaust system that keeps this luxury machine remaining whisper quiet. While this is the perfect car for the drive-in (after all, its interior is more comfortable than any movie theater seat), there's much more to the Town Car. It's got power steering, front disc brakes, and a three-speed automatic transmission. This is the kind of luxury that can easily take you in comfort to car shows as far away as you want.Complete with owner's manual, the kind of vintage luxury that you thought was impossible to find today is not only ready right now, but also it's exceptionally affordable, too.
