  1. As far as the dismal acceleration these cars were nearly 5000 pounds with carburetors, old school smog gear and what amounts to modern small V6 and even 4 cylinder hp. For the time though, they were about average but speed was not the point. Driving in utter isolation with little effort was the point. 

  2. I just noticed that the Mk V has the same interior roof light as my Australian 1984 Ford LTD. Literally identical. Haha. I also have a Lincoln hood ornament to be fitted momentarily. 😛

    This video has motivated me to get my LTD back on the road. Cheers.

  3. In my years of watching TFLCar, this series by far is the most enjoyable, the most significant, the most heartening episodic tribute I can think of. Every guy out there who’s lost his Pappa can relate; it’s difficult for me to find a more fitting memoir for everything our Father’s meant to us..and more.

  4. Too bad the "pristine" Mark is missing the proper pinstriping and the "CONTINENTAL" lettering on the trunk hump. My mom had a Mark VI sedan and there were 3 Mark V's on my street when I was a kid. None of them were a product of "easy money and illegal activities."

  5. I remember the Bookies in Brooklyn driving these back in the late 70s and early 80s. They were a symbol of easy money and illegal activities. I can't wait to see what you do with it.

  6. My guess is that the old car will run better with new plugs, wires, cap, and rotor. I would then replace the PCV valve and breather element as well. With that car sitting around for so many years, the carburetor would probably stand some good cleaning as well.
