I love them too. I have 5 in my stable and am still searching for a 6th. I would love to have a 47 Continental MK1 vert.
I can't say that they offer much nowadays that I would be interested in though. I'm on a Lincoln's forum and we over there have high hopes that the "new" Lincoln Motor Company will build a decent luxury sedan based on the 61 to 65 slabside suicide door cars. BTW the one I'm currently restoring is a 61 sedan.
The lincoln hobby is expensive and difficult due to a lack of decent reproduction parts. Either it's not available, poorly reproduced and most often highly overpriced. For example one door weatherstrip will cost you more than the entire set of rubber for a stang.

Cool I remember seeing a Linc as a kid and the bloke that owned it showed me what was suppose to be real diamonds set in the rear port lights form memory Huh Is this right in any way or has the recollection got misdirected over the years.

I've never heard of Lincoln using real diamonds in their cars. Urban myth or owner customization I suspect.

Good story to tell a 10yr old kid I suspect lol I remember him saying something about diamonds cheeky buggerDodgy some connection I can no longer remember. It did have gold engraved name plates inside I remember that much at least and a wicked dark red interior I thought they was cool,outside was a crappy creamy colour. I also seem to remember there was something about the clock. Really don't know anymore but looks like I was had Smile

Looks like the memory was wrong. Asked dad about that Lincoln as I couldn't stop trying to work out what was different or special about that car. The red I remember was red stripes in the seatsConfused according to dad. Lincolns aren't that common here so that's about the end of any accurate information on my behalf. Should of payed attention instead of dribbling around his 65 galaxie vert

Quartz in the glass. Unique to the '78 Diamond Jubilee Edition Continental Mark V:

FYI: 1970's Lincolns exist to warn Ford enthusiasts that too many neat options can become one neat headache. It's all there in one annoyance-filled package: Power vent windows, Hydroboost, your choice of a smogged 400 or 460, armrests that always break, cheap window switches, thinner gauge steel on '79s (300 pound weight reduction for Continental and Mark V that year), vinyl roofs that trap moisture, 300cfm 2150 carbs on the 400 (or the emissions 4350 for the 460) and a general bad build quality.

Most folks know it too, as a careful shopper can pick up a visually mint, low-mileage, Mark V or '75-79 Continental for under $6,500 - just before the rust makes itself known under the vinyl. Good runners at $3,5k, projects at $500. None of them worth the price, IMO.
