Lincoln is Ford Motor Company's luxury brand and has been around since 1917. One of their most popular nameplates is the Continental, a series of full-size and mid-size luxury cars that have got ten generations under their belt. While the latest Continental bowed out in 2020, the nameplate is particularly prolific as an icon of the Sixties and Seventies. Up for grabs today is one such example, a 1977 Lincoln Continental Town Coupe with a healthy 99,000 miles on the clock. The current owner reports this to be a 1-owner car and that it's been kept up on in terms of routine maintenance.
Sporting a white exterior replete with a moon roof plus a leather half top, you can see the luxury connotations of this 1977 Lincoln Continental Town Coupe. The car is said to sport its original chrome bumpers too. Take a few moments to gaze upon its signature details, such as the headlamps obscured by motorized covers when not in use, the rear wheel slats, and of course, the Lincoln hood ornament. Then, it's time to get inside this 1977 Lincoln Continental Town Coupe, where you'll find a very Seventies red velour interior, as well as plenty of wood trim on the dash and door cards. It's not hard to conjure up images of plush sofas when looking at this car's seats, which are power-adjustable at the front. Other luxury car features of the time include climate control, power windows, and power mirrors. We also spot a Pioneer Super Tuner radio head unit with a cassette tape player, as well as a Cartier clock in the center console.
As a pinnacle luxury car of its time, this 1977 Lincoln Continental Town Coupe is fitted with a suitably sized engine, a 460ci (7.5L) V8. However, the Malaise Era of draconian emission controls was in full swing by 1977, and the engine could only muster up 200hp. Still, it's adequate to move the car in an appropriate fashion, courtesy of an automatic transmission driving the rear wheels. The current owner reports that the exhaust has been kept stock to preserve the refined characteristics of the car rather than making it loud as many tend to do.
