Despite being sold for only 3 years (1977 to 1979) the third-generation Mark V Lincoln Continental was the best-selling of all, with 228,262 produced.
The Mark V is also the largest 2-Door coupe ever sold by Ford, at 230 inches long!
In 1978, engines were a 400ci (6.6 Litre) V8, or a 460ci (7.5 Litre) - the last time this engine would be sold.
A new digital (L.E.D.) display was optional, showing "Miles to Empty" instead of the earlier "Low Fuel Warning Light". Other options included a 40-channel CB Radio, external illuminated thermometer, and an integrated Garage Door Opener.
