It looks like a really nice example. Low mileage, shiny paint, etc. I don’t think the demand is super high for these, so that’s probably what is holding it back. It needs to be priced to reflect demand.
 

Would be a nice cruiser. You’ll want a large garage!

Lincolns of 1977-1979 are popular among

Lincoln enthusiasts, and the very similar 1975-1976

versions have a lesser following.  However, there are

so many of these available that a buyer can afford

to be choosy, selecting a color he likes and finding

one with very low mileage.

 

Asking prices are often away out of line, but 

actual prices are affordable.  For this taupe Lincoln,

$10,000 would be good, $12,000 would be pretty good.

I have an identically styled 1975:

I was surprised to learn just how big these are. At least according to an admittedly quick internet search, this thing is 17” longer than my ‘64 Continental. And that is NOT a small car. I would have to move some stuff in my garage to fit it. 
 

I think you could do way worse than to pick this up for the suggested $12k or so. I hope someone has a lot of fun with it.

These last large Lincolns and Caddy's are a notch bigger than the 60's and early 70's versions.  How much you like them has a lot to do with how you expect them to drive - the early smog controls mean that they use a big engine to turn a lot of gas into a very modest amount of power.

A few years ago, there was one for sale on the 

internet in the exact same taupe color.  (See

picture below, which I saved.)  That one had a

matching velour cloth interior instead of leather.

I really prefer velour over leather, because it is soft,

and most importantly, doesn't show the telltale

creases with use that leather does.

I remember a commercial from that era where a jeweler cut a diamond while riding in a Lincoln.  I don't remember the model, but they were trying to sell the smooth ride.

To promote its smooth luxury ride, Mercury had a Cartier diamond cutter successfully cleave a $125,000 rough diamond in the back seat of a 1972 Mercury Marquis Brougham while driving in New York City at 35 mph.  “Mercury Marquis with a ride that’s steady...as a rock”.

Thanks for the clarification.  I remembered the premise of the commercial, but I mixed up Lincoln and Mercury.

You are welcome.

 

Best regards.
