1985 Lincoln Continental
4-Door Sedan
Valentino Designer Series

Model Year History Overview:

Lincoln Continental is a model name that has been used several times by the Lincoln Division of Ford Motor Company for a line of luxury cars.  For most of its lifetime, the Continental nameplate referred to the four-door Lincoln Flagship.  In 1981 the Continental’s reign as the Lincoln flagship ended when the Town Car, a trim-level up till then, took over as the new flagship.  The Continental continued from 1982 to 1987 as a mid-size model, competing mainly with the Cadillac Seville until production ceased.

This 1985 Lincoln Continental designer-series Valentino model is a rear wheel drive and was originally powered by a 5.0 liter V-8 rated at 150 hp.  It was restored and updated in about 2003.  A 1989 Mustang 5.0 liter (302 cid) High Output EFI V-8 engine with tubular headers rated at 225 horsepower was installed along with new 16-inch late model Lincoln Chrome-plated aluminum wheels.
