Thanks to Josh for pointing out this EXCELLENT 1978 Lincoln Continental. Apparently it is the Cartier Design series edition which is probably the real inspiration behind the Cartier American Tank line of watches…
A daily-driver with under 100K miles on a 460 4bbl engine? The price is right at $500, so if you are in the DC area you know what to do. Hop the jump for more info in case the ad disappears.

One of a kind oldie but goodie. 1978 Lincoln Continental Town Car. Power everything. Gold color with matching interior. This is the Cartier designer series edition. Vinyl Roof, Power Moon Roof, Air Conditioning, Factory CB, AM/FM radio, Power Seats, 460 engine with 4 bbl carb. Great Interior. The car is driven daily, and is also perfect to restore. The car has 93,000 miles. I am the second owner. I’ve had it for nine years, and put about 10,000 miles on it since I’ve owned it. The car needs some work. It needs new tires, new shocks, and a muffler.

More comfortable than your Ikea living room set...

Thanks again Josh, great find!

    Drastically Pimptastic Automatic.

    This car reminds me of this.

        I love ice cream. And I need to get to bed. Well at least have the day off.

    Nice boat. Massage that 460 to make it breathe, and roast the tires. Scare people.

    I’ve been looking for a velour bench seat to rip out of a junkyard, clean and upholster, and turn into a power-operated couch for my future bachelor pad. And at $500, and looking at that rear seat, it would be cheaper than a 2-piece living room set (not that there’d be any room) and way cooler too! The front seat would work in a pinch.
    So, to whichever LeMons team buys this car: I get dibs on the seats.

      Screw the apartment; that thing is probably roomier than most bachelor pads! The lack of a restroom is a minus, though.

      I like how you think. Back when I didn't have kids an my wife was in dental school, I had free time. I would sit in a driver's seat removed from a GTi, in the living room, and play Gran Turismo for hours.

    With a 460, C6 tranny and “factory CB,” this beast deserves duty as a LeMons tow vehicle or picking up ran-when-parked specials.

      Hell, why not just use it as a Lemons entry for that matter? Has there ever been a Team Pimp before?

    The idea of a Factory CB radio in a Lincoln is mind-boggling. Speaking as a product of the 70s: wow, that decade was so crazy warped.
    (OK, anybody got pictures of a factory CB radio?)

    The unit on this page http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f8/am-fm-cb-wiring-581998/ is an AMC unit, but the big three all offered similar units.

    1. CptSevere Avatar

      I remember a similar unit, I think it was in my grandparents' '76 or so Chevy Monza. Thought it was pretty damn cool. I was a little stereo/radio geek at the time, and wondered how the same antenna ran worked for the whole contraption. Not very well, apparently, seems like the all-in-one CB's weren't all that great. However, CB's were the facebook of their day, and I hooked up using the one in my mom's Pinto. Not bad for the likes of me.
      Just trying out this new comment thing. Had to sign up with IntenseDebate just now. Whatever. Hoon is evolving.

        Just installed it tonight. Update coming in the morning. We're hopeful you'll like what it brings.
        Things may be a little wonky over night.

          And why is approval needed for comments? That makes it just plain irritating…

    What a sweet ride! I always liked the rear end design of that style of Lincoln. There is a really nice one in the Motor Museum in downtown Ypsi. I can’t remember the back-story on it, but I remember it being a really clean car.

    1. citroen67 Avatar

      Well…I had a pic of the car, but it must have taken a different exit off of the information superhighway…

    The engineerd Fair Market Value (eFMV™) WOPR-like computer scoured Autotrader Classic and found many comparable cars. Using a random sampling of 5 vehicle (including two low-mile examples which were automatically corrected), an average price of $9180 was calculated. Tack on $5000 for this being a true classic — American steel never looked so classy — and $1500 for general awesomeness — a factory-installed CB! — the fair market value is $15,680. This is a great price for such a treasured piece of American automotive genius.
