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.

Lincoln MKC Concept shows real promise [w/video]

Sun, 13 Jan 2013 00:01:00 EST

Ford's efforts to resuscitate its moribund Lincoln luxury brand began in earnest with the introduction of its 2014 MKZ sedan, a model many labeled as the marque's make-or-break offering. Of course, one model does not a comeback make, and with the MKZ just now starting to trickle into dealers, it will be some time before America's jury of consumers comes in with their judgment. More to the point, it's likely to take better than a decade's worth of products and sustained marketing effort to even begin to figure out whether Lincoln has a shot at redemption or if it will die of Mercury poisoning. After all, rival General Motors has been pouring resources into Cadillac since the late '90s, and if the sales charts are any guidance, it's still probably too early to declare its rebirth a success.
Certainly, a brand with Ford's resources, free of distractions (read: the now-defunct Premier Auto Group and various other side projects) should be able to successfully market a single luxury brand, particularly one with such a rich - if distant - history. Especially now with the Blue Oval enjoying more consumer goodwill than at any time in recent history. So let's all give Alan Mulally and friends a little room to work, eh?
We can start by focusing on the compact crossover seen before you, the Lincoln MKC Concept. Riding atop the same global C-platform that underpins the Ford C-Max, Escape and Focus, the MKC showcar here presages a production small CUV that will stick its distinctive nose into one of the auto industry's fastest-growing segments.

Ford recalls 83k Taurus and crossover models for halfshaft issue

Fri, 15 Aug 2014 08:44:00 EST

Ford and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have issued a recall for some 83,250 vehicles in the US, for an issue with halfshafts. More specifically a "halfshaft retention circlip" might not have been properly installed on affected vehicles, with the result being halfshafts that may move improperly or disengage completely from the linkshaft while driving. The NHTSA release also notes that the issue may occur "without prior warning" which obviously factors in to the timeliness of getting this checked.
Should the halfshaft disengage, a few troubling things could happen. If it occurs while driving, power from the engine will no longer be transmitted to the wheels. And, if the vehicle is parked without the parking brake applied after disengagement of the circlip, vehicles may roll away even if they're transmissions have been placed in "Park."
Affected vehicles are as follows: Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX crossovers from model years 2012 to 2014; Ford Taurus and Lincoln MKS sedans from model years 2013 to 2014; Ford Flex and Lincoln MKT vehicles from model years 2013 to 2014.

Ford's Galhotra succeeds Farley as head of Lincoln

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 19:01:00 EST

Ford Motor Company is announcing a major personnel shakeup that could have a dramatic effect on the future of the Lincoln division. Kumar Galhotra (pictured above), currently vice president of engineering at Ford for all of its vehicles worldwide, is taking over as the president of the luxury brand on September 1, replacing Jim Farley. The automaker is also hiring a new head of advanced engineering.
Galhotra has a huge job ahead of him as the new boss of Lincoln worldwide, overseeing product development, marketing, sales and service. His task is to turn the luxury division into a world-class brand as quickly as possible, and he reports directly to Ford President and CEO Mark Fields.
"These changes underscore our commitment to build on the success of our One Ford plan by accelerating our pace of progress. They also make clear we are serious about Lincoln as a world-class luxury brand and that product excellence and innovation are what will deliver growth and define our entire company going forward," said Fields in the company's announcement.
