This 1978 Mark V was converted by Carrossier Custom Coach Builders in Dallas, TX, and is believed to be a 2 owner car. I purchased from the Atlanta Estate of a Sandy Springs woman, and have owned for almost 20years. The car is designated " Cabriolet Limited Editions -- 1978 #004 " and "Special Edition" on plaques on fender and doors. It has 71,000 original miles and starts, runs, drives, stops, and steers like a new car. For many years the top was stowed down, ready to go to parades and drives in always good weather. The top will need replacing, but may actually be the original so as to facilitate a pattern. The white tape in photos covers deteriorated stitching. The rear vinyl window may actually be original as well. There is no rust - no pitting - no tears or cracks in seats, however the original owner ( I was told ) scraped the garage with the left front fender and while it is perfect, the paint is just a shade different where it was blended.
The compressor turns just needs R12 or Freeze 12 to blow cold, the windows work smoothly ( with the vent addition), the transmission shifts as new, the clock works, as does all options --- the gas gauge does not work, but the "miles until empty" does, and the right turn signal does not click and hold - left works fine..
It is a joy to drive! a head turner, with all the comforts of a new BIG car.
The radio was changed before my time - but a 1978 Cassette radio is included, as are the original wheels (not pictured), and another antenna. The car had spoke hub caps, also included, and I put on the Gold Turbines. I have also included the owners manual (2), a shop manual, and sales literature on the Lincoln's of 1978 with emphasis on the Mark V. The car cover is really a dust cover put on it in my garages, and comes with the car. I have had a lot of "stuff" related to this car --- all will be included in the sale.
Regretfully my age, and "downsizing" does not permit me to keep the car.
Someone will get the basis of a $20,000.00 car with a little work and relatively minor expense to enjoy for the next 20 years.
Only ebay users with credentials and history will be considered, and payment is expected in cash or cashiers check with suitable allowance, in time, to have the check clear.
