SELLER REMARKS

Big American luxury cars of the '70s were unlike anything that came before or since, and the biggest, most luxurious of them all had to be the Lincoln Town Car. By the time this 1979 Town Car was built, Cadillac had already downsized, making it the undisputed champion of the luxury car wars, and with just 58,231 original miles, this is perhaps the most sheetmetal per dollar you'll find anywhere.


Basic white is a fine color on a luxury car, and the all-original finish on this Lincoln shows off what you got for a rather substantial chunk of change in 1979. Finish quality is quite good and for it to look so well-preserved after 35 years is a testament to the car it has received. The long, straight almost gothic lines of the last of the land yachts have aged well and still look attractive today. Traditional Lincoln styling cues abound, including the bright strip of trim that runs along the tops of the fenders and doors, a featured that first showed up with the 1961 Continental. The rubber filler panels for the bumpers remain in very good condition with minimal discoloration, and if you're familiar with these cars, you already know that these parts deteriorate fast if the car is exposed to the elements. The white vinyl top appears to be almost new and might be a replacement, but the overall look is quite uniform, so someone has obviously loved this car. Nice chrome bumpers, a tall, vertical grille, and folding headlights complete the look.


The interior is about the size of a Manhattan starter apartment and as luxurious as a penthouse suite. Blue velour on tufted seats is both durable and comfortable and shows minimal wear. Ornate door panels have controls for the split power front seats, windows, and locks, all framed in fairly convincing faux wood. The weather seals are still supple, so this car seals up like a tomb and just whispers along on the highway, and thick carpets underfoot certainly help with that effect. Other features include automatic climate control, cruise control, automatic dimming headlights, and a rather sophisticated AM/FM/8-track stereo. The back seat has enough room for the starting front line of the LA Lakers and the beautifully finished trunk will carry all their gear and then some.


Ford's 400 cubic inch V8 was the only powerplant available in the Town Car in 1979, and it's a good choice. Smooth, torquey, and almost completely silent, it moves the massive sedan without ever feeling like it's working hard. It's quite original and nicely maintained, with many of the factory markings still visible under the hood. The A/C has been upgraded to modern R134a refrigerant, so it's easy to service in the future and still quite effective, and there are quite a few recent service items visible under the hood. It starts easily and idles so smoothly you'll be tempted to hit the starter again, and the single exhaust system offers just a distant hum to advertise the engine's operation. A 3-speed automatic transmission shifts almost imperceptibly and with towering highway gears in back, this is perhaps the best long-distance cruiser you'll ever drive. Factory alloy wheels remain in excellent shape and carry easy-riding whitewall radials as original.


They called this a "Collectors' Edition" and perhaps its time has come. We'll never see cars like this roaming the highways again, so take advantage of this opportunity to drive America's finest for pennies on the dollar. Call today!

Lincoln MKX Concept goes for the gold in Beijing

Sun, 20 Apr 2014 13:20:00 EST

We've now seen the Lincoln MKX Concept in the metal, and we've shot it with the lenses of our own DSLR cameras. And we have to say, our opinion of the concept's design language has improved over our initial reaction. Yes, it's clear that this MKX shares its underpinnings with those of the Ford Edge Concept that we saw in LA, but the changes made by Lincoln stylists are a welcome departure from the angular lines of its corporate cousin from The Blue Oval.
We like the subtlety of the MKX Concept's front fascia, and the lighting elements both front and rear lend a luxurious quality to the crossover's typical two-box proportions. When combined with the smaller MKC that was shown in production form late last year, it's clear to see that Lincoln has a specific design direction that at least seems visually capable of setting it apart from the Ford models with which the brand shares its platforms. Here's hoping there are some Lincoln-specific upgrades underhood...
Have a look at our image gallery of live photos from Beijing above, reread the press release below, and feel free to let us know what you think.

NHTSA upgrades Ford floor mat unintended acceleration probe

Mon, 17 Dec 2012 08:27:00 EST

According to a Bloomberg report, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has upgraded an investigation into complaints of unintended acceleration lodged against Ford vehicles. The investigation began in June of 2010 when just three complaints had been received and it only concerned the Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan, but this was at a time when the phrase "unintended acceleration" made grown men go pale. With 49 additional complaints received since then, the investigation has been reclassified as an engineering analysis - the last phase before a recall - and it has been expanded to include the Lincoln MKZ, making for a total of "around 480,000" units affected between the three sedans from the 2008 to 2010 model years.
The ostensible cause is that floor mats are trapping the accelerator pedal, but according to a Ford statement at the time, the entrapment is due to owners placing the optional all-weather floor mats, or aftermarket floor mats, on top of the car's standard floor mats. NHTSA has backed up that assessment, pinning the blame on "unsecured or double stacked floor mats."
On the face of it, it would appear that NHTSA has upgraded the status not because of Ford's error, but owner error, and Ford has stated publicly that it is "disappointed" in NHTSA's move. On top of NHTSA still being skittish after that other unintended acceleration debacle, it could be seen to be taking its time investigating all of the variables: it's reported that Ford changed its accelerator pedal design in 2010, a "heel blocker" in the floorpan has been considered a potential culprit in how the floor mats could be trapping the pedal, some drivers have said the floor mats weren't anywhere near the pedal, and according to a report in the LA Times, in "a letter sent by Ford to NHTSA in August 2010, the automaker said it found three injuries and one fatality that 'may have resulted from the alleged defect.'"

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.
