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 needs a farewell address, not a new marketing plan

Tue, 09 Apr 2013 18:44:00 EST


The trouble with Ford's Lincoln brand is that no one cares about it any more.
Not long after I heard that Mark LaNeve, chief operating officer of Ford agency Team Detroit, was moving to take over direct operations of the New York ad agency Hudson Rouge for Lincoln, I heard that JCPenney CEO Ron Johnson was ousted. The two events are connected.

Lincoln unveils its Black Label Collection at Pebble Beach

Thu, 15 Aug 2013 13:00:00 EST

With the posh surroundings of Monterey, CA during the Pebble Beach week as a backdrop, Lincoln has unveiled is new personalization and luxury service brand, called Lincoln Black Label. Following in the footsteps of programs like BMW Individual, Range Rover Autobiography, and many more, Black Label is strategic strike, aimed at upping Lincoln's brand cachet while luring new customers into the fold. Speaking about this at the Black Label's introduction in California Thursday, Jim Farley, Ford's executive vice president of Global Marketing, Sales and Service and Lincoln, told members of the media that "At Lincoln, our flagship is, you get to choose. That's our flagship."
While Black Label customers will benefit from concierge-like service from their dealers - both during the sale process and throughout ownership - the focus of the introduction is strongly focused on interior design.
Lincoln chose its current MKZ sedan and its MKC Concept crossover (seen in the inset image) as the debutants for Black Label treatment for good reason: the well-received MKC points the way forward for Lincoln styling as a whole, and the MKZ will be the first production vehicle to receive the option of the high-zoot interior design. We're told that eventually, Black Label treatment will be available for the full Lincoln lineup, but the MKZ will be the initial recipient, and not until late in 2014 according to the company's current projections.

Consumer Reports says these are the worst new cars of 2014

Thu, 27 Feb 2014 13:00:00 EST

Consumer Reports has announced its annual list of worst vehicles, a cringe-inducing contrast to its list of top vehicles. Ignominiously leading the way in 2014 is Chrysler, which has a staggering seven models listed.
Jeep nearly sweeps the small SUV segment by itself, with its Compass, Patriot and 2.4-liter version of the new Cherokee, while the only midsize sedans listed by CR were the Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger. The new Dodge Dart and the Dodge Journey round out CR's condemnation of Chrysler.
Ford is taking heat as well, with the Taurus, Edge and their counterparts from Lincoln all listed as the worst vehicles in their respective segments. Toyota doesn't fare much better, with its Lexus IS, Scion iQ and tC also making the list.
