1973 Lincoln Continental Mark IV
This 1973 Lincoln Continental has been in the hands of the owner for 10 years after being delivered to its first owner in West Virginia. It is finished in Silver Moondust Metallic with a matching vinyl roof over silver leather, featuring twin comfort lounge seats in front.
Power comes from a four-barrel 460ci V8 mated to a three-speed automatic transmission. Equipment includes power accessories, power-adjustable front seats, cruise control, automatic climate control with functional air conditioning and a power moonroof. The car is now started by electronic ignition and there is a Marti report setting out a long list of original options, which includes an eight-track player.

The exterior is finished in Silver Moondust Metallic with a pinstripe and chrome bumpers. Silver vinyl covers the roof, and the opera window glass features embossed Lincoln badging. The seller notes a refinishing over the rear left wheel arch before his ownership and paint imperfections set out in the gallery.
Aluminum Lincoln 15″ wheels are skinned in Hankook Optimo H724 thin whitewall tires. Tires measure 235/75, are S-speed rated and sport 2013 date codes. A matching aluminum spare wheel wearing a Michelin radial blackwall tire is stored with original hardware in the trunk.
Considering the twin comfort lounge seats up front, the cabin offers seating for up to five occupants on silver leather-upholstered seats, the front of which is power-adjustable and features a split fold-down armrest and rear, a bench. There is some cracking noted on the driver’s comfort lounge seat. Colour-matched thick carpets protected by mats cover the floors. Equipment includes power accessories, automatic climate control, an AM/FM quadrophonic head unit with 8-track player and ash trays with lighters. The air conditioning system blows cold.
The two-spoke steering wheel with cruise control buttons fronts stock silver-faced instruments surrounded by simulated woodgrain. The five-digit mechanical odometer reads just under 9,000 miles, approximately 15,000 of which have been logged during current ownership. Total mileage is unknown.
The 460 cubic inch V8 engine features a single four-barrel carburetor and a blue-finished air cleaner housing. Output is routed to the rear wheels through a three-speed automatic transmission. We have included photos of the engine compartment and undercarriage in our gallery. There is also a photo of a car shelter on the owner’s driveway, which is included with the car should the new owner want it. During current ownership, the current custodian has tended to regular oil services, transmission servicing, brakes all around including master cylinder as well as a steering column replacement. Owner reports that the prior owner replaced the hood and vinyl portion of the roof in addition to commissioning a rebuild of the engine, transmission and rear-end. The most recent oil change was in October 2023 in preparation for the auction.
This 1973 Lincoln Continental Mark IV is offered with photographed carport shelter, spare parts, original factory broadcast sheet, owner’s manual, Ford shop manuals – books and .pdf’s, service records, two sets of keys and Marti report by the owner in Grimsby, On.
