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!
