1978 Lincoln Continental Coupe Diamond Jubilee

1978 Lincoln Continental Coupe Diamond Jubilee




A Grandiose name For A Car Of Grandiose Proportions!

The Continental Mark V is a luxury coupe, that was marketed by the Lincoln division of Ford Motor Company from the 1977 to 1979 model years in North America.

It was derived from its Continental Mark IV predecessor, bringing an extensive update to the interior and exterior design.

At 230 inches long, the Mark V is the largest two-door coupe ever sold by Ford Motor Company. Distinguished by its sharp-edged exterior design, design themes of the Mark V would be adapted onto Lincoln vehicles throughout the 1980s.


  • Style is primarily a matter of instinct and this behemoth is Brash, Bold and Beautiful.
  • This 1978 super-luxurious Diamond Jubilee Edition Mark V was an expensive car new. It was introduced to help commemorate Ford Motor Company's 75th anniversary.
  • Low Mileage - only 35K miles from new.
  • Two Owners in New Zealand, it was first registered here in 2014.
  • Laser straight Body with beautiful paintwork
  • The interior is such a nice place to be - comfortable, quiet and warm.
  • Magical to drive on the open road.
  • Cartier designer Series Lincoln in Beautiful Condition
  • STUNNING is the best way to describe this car.

In its time, these cars would have been a designer's delight.

Throughout the 1970s, luxury car buyers demanded a similar leveling-up of opulence and exclusivity. Beginning in 1976, Lincoln enlisted the services of Cartier, Bill Blass, Emilio Pucci, and Hubert de Givenchy.

While Lincoln already had the interiors and exteriors figured out, it let the designers select the color schemes they felt best represented their style, and with that, the Mark IV Designer Series was born.

Will be sold WOF'd and registered if sold in New Zealand.



Invest In Your Own Classic Car Fund!

Take Control of your Money Now!


At Waimak Classic Cars, our principal interest is to ensure the preservation of classic and vintage vehicles. Please remember that our vehicles are many years old, often with further previous owners. Many have been bought by us recently. We cannot know exactly what repairs or maintenance has been done although we do our best to obtain log books and copies of invoices of work done, when, and by whom.

Our descriptions are based on our own observations and knowledge and we look for the best examples we can find. Indicated mileages are based on the records showing with NZTA and / or the vehicle’s odometer reading. Because of the age of the vehicle, this can never be guaranteed. Our inspections are generally non-invasive. Our description is based on a visual inspection and on information supplied to us by third parties.

Any sale is on the condition that the purchaser relies on his/her own judgment and does not rely on our skill or judgment or on any representation made by us. This applies even if the Buyer has not inspected the vehicle before purchase. We strongly recommend that you have the vehicle inspected by an independent assessor qualified to comment on the particular vehicle’s condition. If you are unable to organise this, then this can be organised on your behalf, at your cost.

We are proud of our reputation. However, no older vehicle can be expected to be as reliable as a new one and so all our vehicles are sold on an as is where is basis. Mechanical breakdowns, electronic failures at inconvenient times and maintenance costs are part and parcel of the ownership of classic and vintage vehicles. Reliability is a combination of the particular vehicle, how it has been driven and maintained, and luck.

For more information about this vehicle, please contact us Monday to Friday between 9:00am and 6:00pm (New Zealand Standard Time) on +64 (0) 3 310-6485 / +64 (0) 274 990-020. Alternatively, you may email us at info@waimakclassiccars.co.nz anytime.
