Isn't it really time to pamper yourself by sliding behind the wheel of your very own near perfect classic? Have you tired of watching everybody else have all the fun as they cruise down the boulevard on those bright sunny days, leaving you sitting behind the wheel of mom's grocery getter?
Come on! Get out of that rut and enjoy life even more than you thought possible.
This near perfect beauty features just 67k original miles and, according to the owner, will drive you comfortably anywhere you care to go. With the 400 ci engine and smooth shifting automatic transmission, this solid Town Landau beauty is the custom Mini Mark edition & has the standard 8 track stereo, power seats, windows, brakes, and steering along with tilt wheel and cruise control.
All gauges including the clock work as they should as do all lights, signals, and wipers. The a/c works, but recently developed a need for a re-charge. The like new interior is in great condition and shows absolutely no signs of wear including the carpet & headliner.
The body and undercarriage appear extremely solid including floors, mounts, etc. The owner is not aware of any filler and the body appears very straight and unmarked. A few pieces of stainless have a couple of very minor dings, but appear quite nice, and the chrome looks like new.
The Mark V style trunk lid adds that extra touch of class to the look of this beauty. Ford dealers sent a small amount of these to an authorized coach builder for the conversion to look a lot like the Mark V Lincoln at about a $5,000 lesser price and sold them new as the Mini Mark. While not many of these were built, they were a big hit with buyers.This great rare classic would look perfect in your driveway. The following are comments from a person that worked the line when these were built and owned one at one time:
Nice Bird. FYI, I worked on the assembly line building the T-Birds in Chicago in '77, '78 &'79. This was probably built there. There were aftermarket coachbuilders adding extras to these 77 T-Birds to push sales. Dealers would send out certain cars for the add-on's. This was originally a plain Town Landau. A coachbuilder added that fiberglass humped trunk lid and the full vinyl roof to impersonate the more expensive Lincoln Mark V of the same year. They called them a "Mini-Mark" & they sold very well. These cars with the "Mini-Mark" option were approx. $12K new compared to $17K for the stock Lincoln Mark V. The humped trunk lid & full vinyl roof addition made them look like a mini Mark V. I had one of these "Mini-Mark" T-Birds back then. I still have the humped trunk lid but not the car as a tree fell on it in a storm many years ago. Looks very nice.
