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.

Lincoln made a rather assertive statement about the future of its products at the 2012 LA Auto Show. Rather than put any new vehicle on display for the first press day, the American premium brand placed a collection of classic cars from its past on the show floor. For the second day, that assortment was replaced with more than a half-dozen examples of the all-new 2013 MKZ. Following that, Lincoln teased a new ad campaign that was in the works, and it appears we now have the first extended promotional video.
Entitled "The Lincoln Motor Company," the spot acts as more of a mission statement, rather than an ad, featuring (once again) cars from Lincoln's past, as well as certain bits of Americana usually reserved for a Levi's ad. The video concluded with Lincoln reintroducing itself to the world, accompanied by a new name: The Lincoln Motor Company.
The video is likely to be the first of many in a large advertising blitz by the automaker, in concert with the rolling-out of the new MKZ. The sedan was the only new vehicle featured in the video, and Lincoln is betting heavily on this "reinvention" to bring customers in to see its new sedan. We want to know what's next. Scroll down to watch the video.
Back in 2012, Lincoln claimed its comeback bid was finally underway with the new-for-2013 MKZ. But don't you believe them - the renaissance won't actually begin in earnest until the shapely compact crossover seen here reaches showrooms in big numbers. That's because while the four-door MKZ was indeed a proper step toward rebirth, the 2015 MKC is the first wholly conceived vehicle under Lincoln as a standalone brand, a move first announced back in 2012.
That's an important distinction, because Lincoln's newfound emancipation from Ford's design and development processes has given the struggling marque both the corporate wherewithal and the will to develop a more fully formed product. The four-wheeled result seen here is a surprisingly cohesive luxury CUV, one with significantly more aesthetic and dynamic separation from its Ford Escape sibling than the MKZ and its Fusion counterpart. Said another way, after flogging Lincoln's latest for hundreds of miles over canyon roads outside of Santa Barbara, we've come to understand that this is far from a re-grilled Dearborn special with luxury tinsel - it's a bona fide standalone product that readily displays the sort of clear differentiation seen in platform cousins like the Audi Q5 and the Volkswagen Tiguan. It's the real deal.
Lincoln has finally given its SUV a facelift after seven long years.
Seven years is a long time. For the auto industry, though, seven years is an absolute eternity. Most vehicles receive clean-sheet redesigns within the span of seven years, usually getting a facelift of some sort after year three or four. Not Lincoln.
