1978 Lincoln Mark V St. Tropez           

This automobile is truly a remarkable vehicle.  It is a custom convertible, with coach work by American Custom Coachworks of Beverly Hills, California.  It is not known how rare this vehicle is, but we have seen claims that no more than ten like this were made by ACC in 1978.  It is a ‘certified custom’ by the Lincoln and Continental Owners Association, which means it was ordered by a Lincoln dealer from the Ford Motor Company to be sold at the dealership.  The car was ordered sold new by the Bob Sight Lincoln-Mercury dealership in Kansas City.  It is believed to have sold for approximately $40,000 when new.

The car has had one repaint, by Ortloff Brothers Restorations of Helena, Montana.  It was repainted exactly as it came from ACC in 1978, including the hand-painted pin-striping to match the unique original pin-striping.  Documentation of all of this will go with the car.    The repaint was done in 1993, and still looks very good, with only a few very minor blemishes during the past 20 years.  It is dark champagne and gold metallic two-tone, and is a striking look.  The car is rust free.

The car has all power equipment, and cold air conditioning.  It has near new tires, and polished alloy wheels.  The interior is a tan leather, and is original, although it has been professionally re-dyed.  The carpet is original and is still new looking, and has the original Lincoln floor mats.  The original boot to be used when the top is down is very presentable.  The top looks new, and was replaced by the previous owner. 

 The car was featured on the back cover of the Lincoln and Continental Owners magazine in 2005,and on an interior page in 2009.  It has been shown in car shows, and has won a number of trophies.  The car currently has 78,000 miles since new, and runs and drives beautifully. 

The current owners are elderly and are downsizing their collection.  If you are looking for a car that will continue to draw attention, and grow in value over the years, this car is well worth a look.  Call the owners at 409-771-0333 or 409-771-3037 for more information.  Inspections are invited.  The car is in Texas.  It is being advertised in national magazines, so is subject to prior sale.

MKC Concept is the real fresh start for Lincoln [w/poll]

Mon, 14 Jan 2013 10:39:00 EST

We were admittedly bullish about the Lincoln MKC Concept when we introduced it to you yesterday, as we were taken aback by how cohesive the C-platform crossover is in the metal. As it turns out, so were you, dear reader. With hundreds of comments booked on our original Deep Dive story, the overwhelming temperature of the Autoblog Commenteriat is one of surprise and delight - quite an accomplishment for a marque that many had written off for dead. The reception here under the bright lights of the Detroit Auto Show appears to be no less positive, but we thought you might want a second, closer look afforded by these live photos.
Lincoln remains mum on production MKC drivetrain specifics (we're thinking it will start with the 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder out of its similarly sized Ford Escape relative, or maybe the midlevel 1.6-liter), but we shouldn't have to wait too long. The showcar is expected to closely mirror the production model (due as early as later this year), so much so that Ford global marketing boss Jim Farley explicitly told the press conference masses, "When you see the MKC, do not think concept." That's good news, as the MKC is pivotal to Lincoln's effort to rebuild awareness and consideration on the back of its MKZ sedan, a model just now going on sale. In fact, with the small crossover segment exploding, the MKC could very well turn out to be more important to the brand than the MKZ.
After seeing these new photos, are you more or less enamored with Lincoln's new concept? Leave a comment after voting in our poll below.

2015 Lincoln Navigator gets lots of updates, still not all-new [w/video]

Thu, 06 Feb 2014 11:58:00 EST

If there's one brand that could really use some fresh, all-new product, it's Lincoln. The MKC crossover is on the way and looks promising, but the just-revealed 2015 model year update of its fullsize Navigator would appear to stop somewhere short of being "all-new." This, despite replacing a product that's been on the market since 2007. Oh sure, there's a brash new face, complete with the company's love or hate split-wing grille, and the revised rear-end treatment does look better to our eyes (if overly familiar). But in the era of the bold new all-aluminum Ford F-150, the Navigator is still based on the outgoing model's all-steel bones, so it's more of an extensive mid-cycle refresh than a completely new piece.
Unlike the F-150, there's no aluminum suit on this black-tie bruiser
That's a shame, really, because the class the Navigator is playing in features a host of really modern, stylish, luxurious crossovers and sport utilities like the Cadillac Escalade, Land Rover Range Rover, Mercedes-Benz GL-Class and more. Unlike the F-150, there's no aluminum suit on this black-tie bruiser, but that's not to say it isn't bringing some new tech to the table in 2015. Under the hood, for example, is Ford's well-received 3.5-liter, twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6, putting out "at least" 370 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. That's a solid engine, and should be a whole lot more spunky and efficient than the archaic 5.4-liter Triton V8 currently being employed in the outgoing model.
