Lot details

Registration No: JOK 786N
Chassis No: 5Y89A847268
MOT: March 2023

  • One of an estimated 1,254 'Lipstick Editions' produced
  • One of the ultimate 1970s 'land yachts' and a very original, well-preserved example
  • Only 54,000 recorded miles (atoc), which are believed genuine
  • Imported into the UK in 2004 and in current ownership since 2017
  • Offered with a history file including original sales literature

Introduced in 1972, the supremely comfortable Lincoln Continental Mark IV was a personal luxury coupe and Ford’s answer to the Cadillac Eldorado. The Wes Dahlberg styled newcomer was longer, lower and lighter than its predecessor. Still very much a neoclassical design, its vertical Rolls-Royce-esque grille, faux spare wheel housing trunk lid and opera windows let into the C-pillars. The interior featured a ‘Twin Comfort Lounge’ bench front seat with 6-way power adjustment, air-conditioning, Cartier clock, electric windows, and plentiful sound deadening. Powered by a 460 cu in (7.5 litre) V8 engine allied to a three-speed automatic transmission, the special edition Blue Diamond, Black Diamond, and the Lipstick Edition were made in lower volume allowing the owner to stand out from the crowd!

Manufactured in 1975, this Lipstick Edition was supplied new to the United States, finished in White (one of two Lipstick Edition colours - the other being Red), with the complementary White interior with Red trimmings, and the exterior finished by a moulded side-strip. Fitted with the aforementioned 7500cc V8 engine allied to the three-speed automatic transmission, the Lincoln arrived on UK shores in 2004. Now showing a recorded mileage of just 54,000 miles (at time of consignment), which is believed, but not warranted to be genuine mileage from new, ‘JOK 786N’ has been in the hands of the vendor since 2017. Presented in a very original, well-preserved condition and 'fully loaded' with power seats, electric windows with locking function, cruise control and a Cartier clock, the Continental has been subject to much improvement while in current ownership including new shock absorbers and underside cleaning and Waxoyling in 2018 and a replacement ignition module and plugs in 2021 (to the cost of some £550). Accompanied to sale by a selection of previous MOT certificates, several past invoices, an original sales brochure, images of the Lincoln, and a current V5C document. A low-production limited edition, it epitomises Lincoln’s ultimate 'land yacht' ethos.
