1978 Lincoln Mark V St. Tropez
This automobile is truly a remarkable vehicle. It is a custom convertible, with coach work by American Custom Coachworks of Beverly Hills, California. It is not known how rare this vehicle is, but we have seen claims that no more than ten like this were made by ACC in 1978. It is a ‘certified custom’ by the Lincoln and Continental Owners Association, which means it was ordered by a Lincoln dealer from the Ford Motor Company to be sold at the dealership. The car was ordered sold new by the Bob Sight Lincoln-Mercury dealership in Kansas City. It is believed to have sold for approximately $40,000 when new.
The car has had one repaint, by Ortloff Brothers Restorations of Helena, Montana. It was repainted exactly as it came from ACC in 1978, including the hand-painted pin-striping to match the unique original pin-striping. Documentation of all of this will go with the car. The repaint was done in 1993, and still looks very good, with only a few very minor blemishes during the past 20 years. It is dark champagne and gold metallic two-tone, and is a striking look. The car is rust free.
The car has all power equipment, and cold air conditioning. It has near new tires, and polished alloy wheels. The interior is a tan leather, and is original, although it has been professionally re-dyed. The carpet is original and is still new looking, and has the original Lincoln floor mats. The original boot to be used when the top is down is very presentable. The top looks new, and was replaced by the previous owner.
The car was featured on the back cover of the Lincoln and Continental Owners magazine in 2005,and on an interior page in 2009. It has been shown in car shows, and has won a number of trophies. The car currently has 78,000 miles since new, and runs and drives beautifully.
The current owners are elderly and are downsizing their collection. If you are looking for a car that will continue to draw attention, and grow in value over the years, this car is well worth a look. Call the owners at 409-771-0333 or 409-771-3037 for more information. Inspections are invited. The car is in Texas. It is being advertised in national magazines, so is subject to prior sale.

In the case of Henry Leland, naming his new car brand after the first President he cast a vote for in 1864 seemed a jolly good idea, on paper.
You should always be careful about the name you choose to give your new baby. The power of association can work in many ways, not always positive.
After an excessive number of recalls on the 2013 Escape and Fusion, we can't really fault Ford for being a little extra cautious with the launch of the 2013 Lincoln MKZ. Last month, we reported that dealer supply of the car was extremely limited due to more attention being paid to quality checks of cars rolling off the assembly line, which led to a 73-percent drop in MKZ sales from last year on top of a 32-year low in monthly sales for Lincoln in January.
The reason for the delay was that the sedans were being shipped from the Hermosillo, Mexico assembly plant to be inspected even closer at Ford's Flat Rock, Michigan plant before they were able to head to dealers. Things seem to be straightening out for Lincoln and the MKZ's production now, as Automotive News is reporting that supply should be up to a "normal level" by the end of this month.
A national law firm, Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP, has filed a proposed class action lawsuit whose presupposition is that MyFord Touch is defective. Specifically, the complaint states that the system - as well as the MyLincoln Touch and MyMercury Touch clones - often freeze, fail to respond to voice or touch commands and have issues connecting to mobile phones.
According to Hagens Berman managing partner Steve Berman, MyFord Touch is a theoretically "brilliant idea" that falls short in actual execution. Said Berman in a press release, "In reality, the system is fundamentally flawed, failing to reliably provide functionality, amounting to an inconvenience at best, and a serious safety issue at worst."
Other MFT issues enumerated within the 41-page filing include problems controlling the window defroster, rear-view camera and navigation system. The suit maintains that Ford is aware of the problem but has yet to submit a workable and acceptable solution to MFT customers. Scroll down if you'd like to read the full press release.
