The 1968 Lincoln Continental found in Berlin was a popular Endangered Car, and the post was well received. And for good reason, the two-door car is magnificent looking. Gigantic coupes are wild. So much room inside, humongous trunks for storage, and lots of power up front.
So here we have another version, this time the 1979 Lincoln Continental Coupe in a wonderful two tone paint job. This thing was barreling along down the Gardiner Expressway in Toronto, and so here are some Super Action shots!
What a good looking machine! This particular Lincoln Mark V is very special because it is the Bill Blass Designer Edition which was only produced in the years 1977 and 1979. William Ralph “Bill” Blass was an American fashion designer
The two-tone paint job is sensational. I don’t really like white cars, but when white paint is combined with a Midnight Blue Moondust Metallic shade like we see here, I have a totally different opinion! I see some nice gold trim paint as well which is also a nice touch.
The tinted windows are mega bad-ass. Talk about a private party.
Here is a look from the front of the car. Look at those flip up head lights. Those are wild!
The tinted windows are pretty much wrap around. I can barely see the driver through the windshield.
Here is a closer look at the front end of this gorgeous 1979 Bill Blass Lincoln Continental. I love how this car has very small front and rear fins.
Nice offset license plate, due to the pointy bumper. Good looking Rolls Royce like chrome grill.
And here we have a close up from behind. The paint job really adds to the overall design of the car. I love how it divides the bottom and the top so beautifully.
The way the spare tire compartment is integrated into the trunk is very cool, another notable difference compared to other Lincoln Continental‘s.
I really like vertical tail lights such as the ones here that are nicely embedded in those mini rear fins.
So there you have it a really really good looking coupe, the 1979 Lincoln Continental Coupe Bill Blass Designer Edition, part of the Lincoln Continental Mark V grouping.
