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 has released a new video teasing... something. In what looks to be an advertisement for more advertising, the company has worked up a clip featuring everything from a drum solo and a flying hawk to Abraham Lincoln himself. The video shows a few shots of what looks to be an MKZ and promises more news is coming on Monday.
What does the company have up its sleeves? Rumors are bouncing around the web like so many ill-informed ping-pong balls, and cover everything from an alternative powertrain for the MKZ to a new two-door model - noise that is underscored by the presence of a Ford Mustang chassis lurking in the background of the video around the 27-second mark (see screen capture above).
Could Lincoln be considering a rear-wheel drive luxury coupe built on the pony's bones? A move like that seems awfully unlikely, but it certainly wouldn't hurt our feelings. Either way, we'll find out more tomorrow. In the interim, check out the teaser video below for yourself.
For its second Super Bowl commercial, Lincoln Motor Company has stepped away from the Max Ernst-ian surrealism of the "Steer the Script" spot. No Germans, no turtles, no aliens nor alpacas this time, just a 30-second run through the ways in which Lincoln sees the 2013 MKZ as a rebirth of the brand and everything a luxury consumer would want.
The kind of traditional spot that could run any time of year, the only question we had after watching it was: "Wait - was that... Abraham Lincoln?" Along with the press release from Lincoln, you can view the spot below.
If you want a deeper look and criticism into Lincoln's "Steer The Script," ad, have a read of AOL Autos' column: Lincoln's Super Bowl Ad is a Flop, written by Pete Bigelow.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is opening an investigation into the 2010-2012 Ford Fusion, Fusion Hybrid and Lincoln MKZ, the 2012 MKZ Hybrid and 2011 Mercury Milan because the agency has hundreds of complaints of electric power steering failure in these models.
According to NHTSA's data, it has received 508 complaints of the power steering allegedly suddenly malfunctioning and resulting in increased effort to turn the wheel. In four incidents, these failures resulted in loss of control and crashes. According to the reports, in some cases a power steering warning message came on as the fault occurred, and other times the system restored itself by turning off and then restarting the vehicle. NHTSA said it has also received further field report data from Ford, but that information hasn't been publicly released yet.
For the moment, there isn't a recall for this failure on these models. NHTSA is just investigating them to "assess the scope, frequency and safety consequences of the alleged defect," and the agency says an estimated 938,000 vehicles could potentially be affected.
