Long Description:

Beginning in 1976, and continuing until 1992, Blass lent his talents to the Ford Motor Company for an edition of their ContinentalMark series of automobiles. In 1976, he shared model configurations with Emilio Pucci, Hubert de Givenchy, and Cartier. Each year, as goes true fashion, the interior and exterior color combinations would be updated. One of the most popular was the 1979 edition honoring a nautical theme, as did the Blass logo of the time. Small anchors were incorporated into the exterior accent striping and interior accents within the Blass "back-to-back B" design theme. The 1979 through 1983 Mark series Blass models were available with a "carriage roof" giving a convertible top look to the cars. After 1983, the Bill Blass edition became a color option with rear quarter window model designations and a few features that were options on the standard model.

Seller‚Ä(TM)s Description:
This 1979 Lincoln MK 5 is a Bill Blass designer edition Mark V, of which only 500 were manufactured in 1979.  It has the 400 cu. inch engine.  It is in good mechanical condition. 

s the flagship vehicle marketed by the Lincoln-Mercury Division, the Continental Mark V would mark the introduction of a new design theme for the Lincoln brand; some styling features of the Mark V would appear on Lincoln vehicles through the 1980s.

The exterior design of the Mark V began life in the late 1960s, as an alternative design proposal for what would become its predecessor, the Continental Mark IV.[4][6] During the development of the Mark V, chassis designers intended for the vehicle to use specially-designed (wider) Michelin tires, leading to widely flared wheel openings in the design.[6] Alongside the Lincoln Continental, the Mark V was styled with sharp-edged fender lines. In contrast to the Lincoln product line, the Mark V shifted towards horizontal edges, with a nearly flat roofline. To increase visibility, the rear window and quarter windows were enlarged.

In Mark-series tradition, the Mark V included a Continental "spare tire" decklid, oval opera windows, hidden headlights, and a radiator-style grille. In a design similar to the Continental Mark III, the Mark V includes vertical taillamps. During its development, a design that extended into the top of the fenders (similar to the current-generation Jaguar XJ) was eliminated after receiving controversial reviews from focus groups.[6] A new design feature was included for functionality; the fenders included functional louvers behind the front wheels.[4] The Mark V also featured Premium Bodyside Moldings (full-length chrome trim; color-keyed to the vinyl top).

Although technically a $187 option, all versions of the Continental Mark V were fitted with a vinyl roof unless specifically ordered without one.[4] In 1979, the vinyl roof could not be deleted.[4]

In the engine compartment, the now-seemingly gigantic 7.5 L (460 cid) V8 and dual-exhaust 400 V8 are discontinued, all in the name of helping Ford Motor Company meet the US government-mandated Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards, which were enforced beginning in 1978.

A new AM/FM stereo radio with cassette tape player, as well as Ford's new top-of-the-line Electronic AM/FM Stereo Search Radio with Quadrasonic 8-track tape player, were added as new radio options. The latter received a floor-mounted foot-switch (inboard of the physically identical floor-mounted headlamp dimmer switch), which would allow the driver to left-foot-tap the switch to scan radio stations or advance tracks on the 8-track player, without having to take their hands off the steering wheel.

As Mark V and Continental were in their final year of being the largest, and the last "traditional-sized luxury" production cars in America (and the world, for that matter), a commemorative "Collector's Series" package (a few months later, an actual stand-alone listed model) was introduced. The ever-popular Designer Series and optional Luxury Group offerings continued - yet again in newly revised color and trim selections.The Carriage Roof option (still only available in white canvas-embossed vinyl; but now standard on Bill Blass Designer Series) received new interior rear quarter trim panel inserts (a blanked off, color-keyed padded vinyl insert filler panel covering the area where the deleted opera windows were - with round (non-switch-operated) reading/courtesy lights in the center of these panels on each side; thus effectively replacing 1978's rear quarter panel vanity mirrors). These new interior quarter trim panel inserts would also appear on the Collector's Series, (in color-keyed vinyl, or cloth ‚Ä" depending on the seat trim color) as the exterior landau roof design also eliminated the opera windows on this model. Here, though, the reading/courtesy lights in these quarter panel inserts had control switches above the rear seat quarter armrests, to allow them to operate as customary door-jamb activated interior courtesy lights, as well as rear seat passengers being able to switch them on and off independently as true reading lamps.
