    That interior looks quite snazzy. Whoever buys it, I hope they own a car museum.

    Agreed. I really loved all of the “special addition” Lincoln’s from that period. I totally get the mileage disclosure. I have a ‘78 with a 460 that gets far better mileage than my ‘79 with a 400. But I wanted the ‘79 cause I like the collector series.

    If you are looking for a late 70's Mark, you would be hard pressed to find a better car at a better price.

    Now, this IS a Lincoln. Not one of those bullsh!t MKS's like I have(although it is a pretty pleasant driver).

    I'd like to take a spin in a new Connie and see how it stacks up, My son hitched a ride in a Black Label and said it was pretty substantial, BUT he has limited exposure to the real Lincolns. His '96 Townie is a good candidate, but I think for him, it'd be a real eye opener to hitch a ride in a 58-60, a Mark III or a 70's Connie......

    What Designer Edition did I personally like best? Tough to say, as they changed year from year.

    But I do really like this one!
