Wikipedia page briefly detailing the history and interesting facts about the 1978Diamond Jubilee:


Mechanical: Recent workincludesdual exhaust from the engine back, ew disc brake pads all around as well as front rotors, ew alternator, ew front end parts and front and rear shocks as well as a set of new tires. The a/c has been retrofitted to modern freon, lows nice and cold. All the amenities work including the cruise control, he windows (small power vent and main) are quick, ower seats work in all directions and the headlight doors open and close properly and stay closed, ven when the car has been parked for awhile. The power moonroof and sliding shade work perfectly, o leaks in car washes or heavy rain.The engine starts easily even after sitting for weeks andthe garage floor is always dry when I pull the car out.She cruises nicely on the highway, hifts smoothly,four wheel discs stop the car quickly, heidles evenlyand the suspension is silky smooth over the roughest roads. The Mark V's are unique in that they have the cushy, uxurious ride yet still handle well for their size. On the highway she'll get 13-15 MPG, retty good for a 70's luxury cruiser.The directional/brake/turn signal/headlights/brights work properly, s well as the wipers and horn.

Cosmetics: The Lincoln overall is in very good to excellent condition.The dash display, added dashboard, eadliner and visors are in excellent condition as well as the seats and carpet. Having spent most of its life down south and in a heated garage in the winter since it's been up north, t's obviously always been a "Garage Queen".

I'm selling the Lincoln due to financial circumstances as you can see from the lack of a reserve price. I'm a big fan of the Mark V's and the Diamond Jubilee is the finest example of this stylish, ncredibly well built car. This Mark V is easily the best driving classic car I've owned. When the windows and moonroof are closed it's totally quiet inside. Holds the road perfectly on the highway with no drifting or play in the wheel.

I can assist with shipping in the USA or internationally if necessary, ost of shipping to paid by buyer. I can recommend a door to door auto shipper I've used in the past; they're professional, eliable and have great rates.
