1979 Lincoln Mark V Blass

Classic Facts

44,000 original miles... Dual stage repaint in its original color combination of White and Dark Navy Metallic with white vinyl roof and Dark Navy Blue leather interior... Excellent original condition...

Sold new to Melba Spegal of Texas in 1979, this beautiful car remained with Melba for 35 years until we purchased and brought to Florida last June. After many years of storage, we have completed a refresh, and now it is ready for its next owner...

Next to the 1978 Diamond Jubilee, the 1979 Bill Blass is our most requested and highest value Mark V. We sell about 45-50 1970's Lincolns per year and this is only the sixth one we have had in seven years of selling classic cars.

The Designer Series Mark V's were Special Edition models starting in 1976. Blass, Cartier, Pucci & Givenchy were the four designers and each edition was unique in color and trim. This 1979 Givenchy is the only Lincoln with this special color paint and leather interior, not repeated in any other Lincoln.

The 1979 Blass is known as the nautical car due to it's White & Blue color theme and anchor buttons on the seats. Special gold pinstriping and was available in with a faux White convertible top or the rarer full vinyl top with portholes. Color coordinated turbine wheels were part of the package. The Designer Series cars are some of the most sought after Lincolns of the 1970's and this is an excellent example.

This car has just received a brand new dual stage repaint in it's original color combination of White and Dark Navy Metallic. The original correct Blass pinstripe was reproduced in paint. Full White vinyl roof and original Dark Navy Blue leather interior. All original and in excellent condition.

I think 70's Lincolns are the best built cars of there era and undervalued for their quality and styling... We sell more 70's Lincolns than anyone in the world... and this car is ready for its new owner...

Now it will look great in your garage. The car is equipped with the factory 400 cubic inch engine, 2BBL carb and automatic transmission.
