Let's go Yachting! Land Yachting that is. GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1978 Lincoln Continental Town Car Sedan for consideration. These late '70s Lincoln's are known for their size and luxury and its quite apparent once you slip behind the wheel of one of these ships. This one is a product of the Wixom, MI assembly plant that once existed less than a mile down the road from our Metro Detroit facility.

This is a very highly optioned Continental that had a base price of $10,166 and came with the following standard options: A/C with auto temp control, C6 3-speed automatic, power steering, power brakes with front discs, power windows, tinted glass, Cartier digital clock, solid state ignition, coolant recovery system, remote control mirrors, and cornering lights. It is also equipped with the following options: Crystal Apricot Moondust Metallic paint ($189), Dark Cordovan vinyl coach roof ($269), 7.5L 460ci V8 ($187), custom paint stripes ($53), leather delete velour seats ($200 credit), opera windows ($93), traction-lok differential ($67), illuminated entry system ($63), headlamp convenience group ($133), defroster ($115), tilt steering wheel ($77), cruise control ($127), AM/FM radio with Quadrasonic 8-track ($373), interval windshield wipers ($35), Town Car package ($1,440), appearance protection group ($76), interior light group ($127), power lock convenience group ($147), forged aluminum wheels ($333), and premium body side moldings ($128) and with destination charges it brought the window sticker to $14,110! That's equivalent to $53,000 today!

It was sold new at Salem Lincoln Mercury in Flint, MI in July of 1978. This Lincoln comes with every single piece of original documentation from new including: The original window sticker, warranty ID card, the original warranty booklet, an original extended service plan card along with the $275 check purchasing the plan, the original sales brochure, the original temp tag, the original owner's manual, the original consumer information sheet, both original keys, a receipt for undercarriage rust proofing done by Tuff-Kote Dinol on 8/29/78, an original map of Genessee County from 1978, and an original map of Michigan from 1978.

The car has recently received a new muffler, water pump, and passed a full inspection from Varsity Lincoln in Novi, MI and is 100% road ready. With only 19,600 original miles, with the vast amount of original documentation, and its outstanding original condition, it is clear that this Lincoln has been meticulously cared for and loved from new. Don't miss out on this one!
