The Continental Mark V was a personal luxury coupe that was sold by Lincoln division of Ford Motor Company from the model years 1977 through 1979. A basic continuation of the Mark IV chassis and mechanicals, the Mark V featured all-new creased, angular sheet metal, featuring now-classic styling elements such as concealed headlamps, chrome-plated Rolls Royce inspired front grille, elliptical opera windows, and spare-tire contour trunk lid - with that classic 7-foot long hood, short deck, hardtop coupe styling. The 1977-1979 Mark V was the largest version of the any Mark series ever produced, and, with the exception of the 2.7" longer ( full-size ) 1977-1979 Lincoln Continental two-door coupé, the 230.3" long "mid-size" ( per EPA size classification standards of the day ) Mark V was the longest 2-door coupe ever sold by Ford Motor Company. It was definitely the longest mid-size car ever produced... beating out its perennial arch-rival, the 224" long Cadillac Eldorado. With an average of 75,000 units sold in each of its three years on the market, the Mark V was also the single best-selling version of any Mark model in its history...here also, beating out it's main market competitor, Eldorado through 1978. All Continental Mark Vs were assembled at the Wixom Assembly Plant in Wixom, Michigan, alongside the standard Lincoln Continental and Continental Town Car/Town Coupe. For 1980, the Mark V was replaced by the Continental Mark VI, which downsized the Mark to near-previous intermediate-sized exterior dimensions - utilizing the new-for-'79 Ford LTD/Mercury Marquis based "Panther" platform.
