1978 Lincoln Town Car

My grandparents have been driving the same car for almost 30 years. Every time it needs work, and often before, my grandpa drives his "classic" down to the mechanic or body shop and has something done to it. He has never been interested in even discussing a replacement or a second car. Oh, and he's 84 and scares people when he gets on the road.

This week was my all-time favorite garndpa moment, though. He just had a newly-built engine put into his "baby". To the tune of over $2,000. Anyone want to take a stab at what a 1978 Lincoln Town Car is worth today?

1978 Lincoln Continental Town Car

Lincoln Continental Town Car. This Continental Town Car is Fords 75th anniversary edition. This car has 60k documented miles and repair history. Like great wine, time had only made this vintage automobile finer, she's a rolling tribute to excess in remarkable fine condition. The AM-FM, AC, heat, power brakes, steering, seats, antenna, trunk lock and everything else she started with in 1978 still work fine. The plush leather seats are in great shape free of rips and stains. This car is a beauty, a real head turner, an elegance that has never went out of style. This classic still runs as sweet as she looks, as Fords Anniversary car she represents an unparalleled history automotive excellence, built to make a statement as she does when you cruise.
Price - $ 5,000

And that one doesn't even have the 8-track player that G's car still boasts. It's sure to drive up the value... ;)
