Golden Sleeper: 1978 Lincoln Continental

The late 70s Continental was never a sporty car.  It was marked by Lincoln as a personal luxury coupe with an emphasis on the luxury. It wasn't Lincoln's fault that the fuel crisis and emissions laws made the Continental barely produce 200 horsepower from its massive 460 cubic inch V8...but this next car has been seriously upgraded with a fire breathing 532 cubic inch big block Ford V8. Find this 1978 Lincoln Continental offered for $10,000 in Harrisonville, KS via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

Beautiful sleeper. Runs and drives good. Make an offer.

  1. No mention of corresponding brake or suspension upgrades... Yikes.

  2. You are definitely going to get to know your neighborhood gas station owning this car. Can you say thirsty?

  3. The sheer size of this thing is amazing. It's more than half a foot longer than a 2019 Suburban.... and it's a 2-door!

  4. Actually Harrisonville MO. South of Kansas City

  5. Holy Auric Goldfinger, do I ever need this in my life. For a day.

  6. Nice post, Thank you so much for sharing the valuable information.
