Description

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 miles. It is the lowest mileage and most original unrestored Lincoln Continental known to exist. The only components on this vehicle that have been altered are a four - inch section of fuel line near the rear that had to be replaced due to leaking, and an inline fuel filter near the front of the car that can easily be returned to factory spec. 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 has no blemishes whatsoever. 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 2015. 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 and owner's manual are included. You won't find another 1978 Lincoln with less than 100 miles on it!
