Engineering Made It Happen? 1978 Lincoln Versailles

This next car is a big piece of American iron built at the height of the malaise era that is mostly known for donating its rear brakes to customized 60s Mustangs and being the first production car to offer clearcoat paint. If you are a DT regular, you might also know the Versailles from the time you spent in your local junk yard back in the 90s. Fortunately, today’s example is about as far from the typical Versailles sitting on cinder blocks at Billy’s Pick-n-Pull and looks (from the single photo provided by the seller) to be in premium shape. Find this 1978 Lincoln Versailles offered for $10,000 in Atchison, KS via hemmings. Tip from BP.
