Description

This is your chance to own a well preserved 78 Town Car. It is the last series of the long wheelbase (127") and lengthy (233") luxury cars of the seventies decade. This particular car comes in Cinnamon Gold with matching full length vinyl top. The interior is Chamois Media Velour Cloth. Among other things standard with the town car were the twin six way power bucket seats and distinctive bodyside molding. Hideaway headlamps and cornering lamps were also standard. This particular car also has tilt wheel, cruise control and AM-FM with factory 8-Track tape player (working). All of the windows including the vents work properly. The power door locks work with the exception of the driver's door. The remote deck lid release works properly. These cars have an incredibly smooth and quiet ride because of their long wheelbase and sound deadening material installed when new. The power brakes were ahead of their time with the front disks and hydraboost (which used the power steering system hydraulics instead of vacuum for the power assist). It stops straight and true and has new flex lines on the front disks. The body panels on the car are straight and contain absolutely no rust. All of the body gaps are correct with the fit of the trunk, hood and doors just as they left the factory. The paint appears to be all original with normal door dings found on a 37 year old car. There are also small pitting from highway use on the front paint of the car. The vinyl top is near perfect with the only rust bubbles on the right front pillar. The chrome bumpers are a 9 out of 10 with no absolutely no rust only very minor fading on the top surfaces. All of the stainless is straight and clean. The wheel covers are very nice with no corrosion. The drivers's mirror has very light pitting on top. The interior is nearly perfect and shows no real wear and tear. The dash appears as new which is indicative of a garaged car. The carpets and door panels are very nice. The trunk has full carpeting with just minor staining on the bottom. The front and rear bumper extensions are in good shape. The windshield and other glass is perfect. Problem areas: The clock does not work. The heat and AC functions all work as designed except that the AC is low on refrigerant. It gets cool but not cold so will need R12 added or will need to be changed over to R134. The Michelin tires look great and have ample tread but due to their age probably need to be replaced before driving long distances. As mentioned earlier there are rust bubbles under the vinyl on the right front pillar as shown in photos. This is a good looking car. It sets up straight on all four corners and you would be proud to drive it to shows, cruise nights or as an everyday driver. The engine, transmission and rear end on these cars are overbuilt and just about bulletproof. I am listing this car for a friend who does not use the internet. I have attempted to describe this car as honestly as possible and with detail but please ask any questions that you may have.
