1960 Lincoln Continental Mark V photos
« on: March 04, 2014, 12:56:31 PM »

While I am sure that the fuel miles-per-gallon rate for this beast of a car is close to "undefined," I still think it's a pretty cool-looking product out of Dearborn.

It was also the largest non-Limo car that Lincoln ever made; these were even larger than the land-yacht Continentals/Town Cars/Coupes of the 1970s. 

The wheelbases for the lost '58-'60 Marks III/IV/V (Continentals) and Premier (Lincolns) was 131"... the same as the current Navigator L (extended length) model.

I really am glad to have a modern car that requires much less maintenance, uses much less fuel, almost never fails to start, and easily goes hundreds of thousands of miles with no major repairs, but those beautiful old cars make me wish I were older and had experienced a few of them.

If it's MPG's you worry about you could do the Neil Young Heavy Metal Continental deal!

US 101 is THE backbone of the Pacific coast from Bandon OR to Willets CA.  Industry, tourism and local traffic would be gone or severely crippled without it being in functioning condition in BOTH states.

This car was one of the largest if not the largest unibody car ever built.  From what I've read, they handled surprisingly well for such tanks.  I'd love to have one.
