My first car, a '79 Granada, 250ci six, C4, 190k miles, very reliable, but ran like crap. Sold it.


'77 Lincoln Versailles, 351W, C4, 9'' rear end, 4-wheel-disc, power sunroof, bench, windows, etc (all worked). Got it for free, but it had no title, and I was forced to get rid of it because I had no place to put it. Would have made a great DD.

I just joined a few days ago.....I have had a few Crown Vics in my day ('79 4-door & '83 LTD Crown Vic wagon "S" model) and also a 1996 Lincoln Town Car. But this is one of the LTD's I own now.

When I bought her:





And her now:





This is a pic of my last Town Car:

Thanks man!

Its been one hell of a road with her....bought her for $150 bucks, not running. It was the fuel pump that was bad, that was all. She was under a tree for three years becouse of that......

After I redid all new brakes (lines, master, calipers, seals, etc), solid tune up, new battery and alt......she was running like a champ. In October, some kids at college blew out my front window.....$300 bucks later.......Nov rolls around, i hit a deer at 55 mph....the wagon, my dog, and I where fine.......the deer lost out on that one......

So I got a used front header panel from a local yard, painted all the pieces in my apt in Jan & Feb........

Shes come a LONG way

Well I got an est. on the orginal vinyl wood, it was a little over $700 bucks.....thats what I spend in books alone in one sem., so that was out of the question. So I ended up using contact paper from my local hardware store, $25 bucks to do the whole car.

Its been about a year and half and its been holding up very well. I has been through car washes, snow/ice storms, under the hot midwestern summer sun, and NO signs of peeling, blistering, or craking.

I have NOS woodgrain trim pieces (the cream colored border trim) for the entire tailgate if you're interested... Shoot me a PM... I think I might also have a rear swaybar for a Barge laying around...

79 Zephyr not my idea of a classic, but I miss it. I gave it to my brother in law since at 330,000 miles it left me on the side of the road once and then started running poor after getting it going again. Shear pin holding distributer gear, well, sheared so I drove it 3 miles with it 180 degrees out, and variations there of until the exhuast got so hot it melted the 00 gauge battery cables insulation. After that and finally figuring out what was going on and fixing it, I drove it another year and finally gave it away and replaced it with a 2000 Grand Marquis!
How did the body hardware holdup?Any problems with door handles falling off,windows not working,dash rotting,park to reverse problems?Oil leaks?Would a K-Car have been better? Ha.

I'm jelious! She looks like shes in AWESOME shape, showroom new.....I would really like a Marquis like yours. My uncle had a 77-78 model in the mid 80s when I was a kid.....I still remember the soft, almost pillow like ride. Congrats on the new boat!
