All Original Town Coupe! 3,957 Actual Miles, # Matching Drivetrain, Time Capsule

1978 Lincoln Continental Town Coupe

VIN: 8Y81A944486

This all-original Lincoln is a true time capsule. It has only 3,957 original miles since its birth in 1977. Everything, and I mean everything, on this car is in astounding shape for being almost 40 years old! Everything besides the exhaust system is all-original and remains in excellent condition. This car may not have even seen rain! Factory tags and paint markings can be found throughout the undercarriage and engine bay (as you'll see in our video, there are even some original paper tags on control arms!). If you're looking for a brand new 1978 Lincoln look no further.
