Lincoln Mark IV Was Big On Personal Luxury

Posted on June 13, 2016

The 1972 to 1976 Continental Mark IV came with an impressive pedigree.

It was descended from the original Lincoln Continental V12 that was inspired by Ford Motor Co.’s president Edsel Ford's custom built 1939 personal car, a one-off special based on the Lincoln Zephyr.

It proved so popular that Ford put it into production as the 1940 Lincoln Continental.
