"The 1972 Lincoln Continental. The finest cars built in America" *
*Quoted from:style="margin: 0.5em 0px; line-height: 22.3999996185303px; color: rgb(37, 37, 37); font-family: sans-serif; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">
Barn finds are very hard to come by in California but here is one that was driven only 80K
miles and according to the previous owner whom is the 2nd owner was driven less than1,500
miles in the past 3 years.
Everything is original and works as it should except the driver side rear quarter window does
not move up or down all though the motor can be heard, my guess is it is the regulator that is
broken.
This beauty even has a Cartier Clock which I was told was standard!!!
I am just testing the waters at this point since I just found and bought this beatiful and
precious car but am willing to sell it for the right price.
"In 1972 only less than 23% of the Lincoln Continentals produced were Mark IV (Coupe)
models and the rest were sedans. (10,408 out of 45,969 cars produced)" *
Also:
1972 was the best sales year for Lincoln since 1966.
60 out of the 100 Cadillac owners participating in a test said the Continentals had a more comfortable ride than Cadillac.**Quoted from:style="margin: 0.5em 0px; line-height: 22.3999996185303px; color: rgb(37, 37, 37); font-family: sans-serif; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">
Styling of the 1972 Lincoln Continental Luxury Coupe
The Mark IV carried over most styling motifs from the successful Mark III, including the tall, prominent grille, the fashionable long-hood short-deck style, covered headlamps, a "spare tire hump" in the trunk, and the taller, knife-edged fender line.
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 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.
All Mark IVs were equipped with the V8 engine. 1972 Mark IV's were rated at 365 bhp drove
through a automatic transmission.
The performance-gap between the 1972 and its later-years was significant since in 1973 compression-ratio was lowered
considerably due to new changing EPA requirements, and Ford adopted a new SAE method of measuring horsepower,
resulting in 212 style="margin: 0.5em 0px; line-height: 22.3999996185303px; font-family: sans-serif; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">
