Lincoln might be running away from these cars now, but the Mark IV was a real success story at the time.

It is indeed very much a car of its decade. The 1970s Continental Marks are arguably the zenith of the personal-luxury era, in all its long-hood, short-deck, vinyl-top, opera-window glory, in the same way that a '59 Cadillac epitomizes the finned '50s. As Deak says, "It's the pinnacle of mid-'70s fabulousness." And there is fabulousness. Ford threw everything it had at the Mark—some of it serious, some of it less so. On the serious side, one can't help but marvel at the smooth and silent operation of the massive, 460-cubic-inch V-8 engine.
