Awesome time capsule of the disco era
This 1978 Lincoln was bought new by H. W. Saunders on June 30, 1978 in Albemarle NC,
and spent a pampered life here in the South.
The 1978 Lincoln was a very distinctive and rich-looking car that year,
especially in the triple blue "Collector Series" color scheme.
This is a loaded car missing only the sunroof option,
but with everything from all power options,
to a big block 460 belting out enough torque to make even
the muscle car minions question their cars capabilities,
(with all due respect to my muscle car buyers).
PAINT The paint is slick and deep, a show finish.
The car appears to have possibly had a professional repaint in the original color
at some point in its life but this does nothing but add to the value
and appearance of this car.
INTERIOR The interior is factory original with excellent blue leather
and deep clean carpet.
All of the interior chrome is virtually pit-free and shines like new.
All the power options work as they should.
The headliner is in very nice condition and is original, a rare find.
Horn works great, and is loud!

Automatic heating system
Six-Way power seat adjuster
Power window regulators
Automatic headlamp beam control

GLASS: All glass is crack-free with no delaminating.

Wheels are the same.
ENGINE/TRANSMISSION: 460 V8 runs very nicely as is,
I have been driving this car on short trips around town
and enjoy every minute of it.
As excellent cruising car for weekend trips.
Transmission shifts and works as it should
