Lincoln Continental! 95 Original Miles, # Matching, 400ci V8, Auto, All Original

1978 Lincoln Continental

VIN: 8Y82S866305

Newly for sale is this truly unbelievable 1978 Lincoln Continental, unlike any other you have ever seen. This car has 95 all original miles on the odometer. Not 900, 9,000, or 90,000. Ninety Five Miles. It is the lowest mileage and most original unrestored Lincoln Continental known to exist. This Continental is a time capsule that you simply need to see to believe. The full red leather interior is in showroom condition, and the exterior black paint is in truly amazing original condition. A client purchased this vehicle in 1978 as an additional car in Milwaukee, WI, drove it to a wedding, and parked it for the rest of its life. The car has since been garaged and covered and remained in the estate until recently. A recent major 200 - point inspection and service were performed, and everything works as it should. Purchasing this car today is essentially buying a brand new 1978 Lincoln Continental. The original window sticker, owner's manual, car owner companion folder, and full purchase documentation are included. Some additional features include Air Conditioning, Cartier Clock, Power Steering, Power Brakes - Front Disk, Power Windows, AM/FM radio with power antenna, Opera Windows, Cruise control, and Remote Control Mirrors. You won't find another 1978 Lincoln with this mileage or original condition. Call us today before its gone!
