Re: Lincoln heritage videos/photos

Great photo of the Mark Series....Is this just one side of the Photo (I don't have a face book account)...It would be cool if the other half showed the Mark V, VI, VII, and VIII facing them....and the new for 2017 Mark IX right in the middle, facing forward.

Curbside Classic: 1976 Continental Mark IV
Givenchy Edition – Aqua Couture
By Tom Klockau
August 31, 2012

Thirty-five years ago the Personal Luxury car was in its prime...
...the Mark did very well, selling 48,591 units despite its stiff $8,640 sticker. It sold remarkably better than the ’71 Mark III, which found 27,091 buyers. Period ads proclaimed, “In all the 1970s, this will be the unique American car.” Although the Mark hadn’t exactly invented the personal luxury segment, the ad was correct as far as it went. The Mark IV and Eldorado were the top two luxury cars in America. That fact, and several memorable Motor Trend “King of the Hill” comparison tests, prompted many middle-class buyers who couldn’t afford the real thing to go for “mini-Mark” Cougars, Montego MX Broughams and Ford Elites. And that oval opera window (optional in ’72, but so popular it became standard in ’73) would be a prominent Lincoln cue through the end of the decade.

As the ’70s wore on, the Mark IV remained a popular choice among luxury coupes, with sales zooming to 69,437 in 1973. Even in 1974, with Gas Crisis I in full swing, sales totaled 57,316–more than in 1972, despite that it was basically the same car. What, then, could be done to keep consumer interest high? Special editions, of course!

First up was the Silver Luxury Group Mark IV for 1973. As you might expect, it featured metallic silver paint with a silver Cavalry Twill vinyl roof. The interior was cranberry velour, with leather optional.

The silver Mark continued for 1974, and was joined by (you guessed it) a Gold Luxury Group. Described in the ’74 L-M brochure shown above. these special Marks opened the door for even more “Boutique” Luxury Groups that further gilded an already well-equipped car. By 1975, there were Silver; Lipstick and White; Saddle and White; and Blue Diamond Luxury Groups...

...The Special Edition craze reached its head in 1976 with the Designer Series Marks, which went beyond the already quite nice Luxury Group versions. It was sheer, pure and simple snob appeal–and in the ’70s it worked perfectly...


much,Much More... and many photos!!

The picture of Marks I through IV introduced the 1977 Mark V. This was the first page of the 1977 brochure and the next page was a 2 page spread of the then new Continental Mark V in Silver or White. Will need to reference the brochure if I can locate it.

Re: Lincoln heritage videos/photos

Edward M Fiore shared Dan Kirkpatrick Interiors's album to the group:
The Classic Lincoln and Continental Appreciation Society


1953 Lincoln Capri Derham Custom Coupe
The Lincoln Capri was a full-size automobile sold by Ford's Lincoln luxury division. This unique car was ordered by Tom O'Conner, the son of a wealthy oil and gas family, as a present for his first wife. Custom built by Derham, one of its most interesting facets is the interior, which was done in a button tufted wool broadcloth that covers even the dash and dash fascia.
These photos were taken at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, 2011

imho there's something seriously wrong with a society/economy without custom coach-built cars...
...restomod special-interest cars do NOT count,
I want to see personalized sheetmetal on examples of the current lineup

Re: Lincoln heritage videos/photos

^I agree with you 110%, 2b2! What's wrong with us?!?

The coachbuilders were the ones that made luxury cars special, not the OEMs. I'd love to see them return, too. The OEMs can't and will never afford to replace them, IMO.
