The Lincoln Continental Mark IV was a luxury car at the top end of the personal luxury car market sold under the Lincoln brand of the Ford Motor Company in North America between 1972 and 1976. It replaced the successful Continental Mark III, and was in turn replaced by the Continental Mark V. The “Sure-track” ABS was standard.
For 1972, close-fitting bumpers dipped in front to allow a longer grille. At the rear, the bumper followed the rounded “spare-tire hump”, continuing its lines further down. Both of these styling touches were lost in subsequent years because of Federal 5 mph (8 km/h) bumper mandates; the front in 1973, the rear in 1974.
All Mark IVs were equipped with a vinyl roof and also introduced the opera window to the Mark series, a feature that would become a Mark trademark until 1984. In 1972, it was an almost universally specified option and from 1973 onward it was standard equipment.
Equipped with a powerful 7.5litre Ford 385 series V8 engine with 365bhp, this example is finished in a wonderful Lime Gold Moondust Metalic with complementing and luxurious beige leather interior, which remarkably, is believed to be original. A fantastic example of the iconic Lincoln Mark IV with a luxuriously upholstered interior.
