1974 Lincoln Continental Mk IV: Lincoln Continental was a model name for a series of automobiles produced by the Lincoln division of Ford Motor Company from 1939 to 1948 and again from 1956 to 1980 and from 1981 to 2002.   Despite often sharing underpinnings with less-expensive Fords in more recent years. the Lincoln Continental had usually been a distinctively platformed and styled. highly equipped luxury car in the course of its long history. The flagship  Lincoln model during most of its run. the Continental name conveyed special cachet in the product line. For 1970. the Continental received a ground-up redesign for the first time since 1961. Available again as a two-door hardtop and a  four-door pillared hardtop. the Continental borrowed a number of styling cues from both its predecessor and the Continental Mark III. As before. the sides were relatively unadorned with blade-like fenders. but the door handles on  4-doors gave away the biggest change: the distinctive "suicide doors" were replaced by conventional front-hinged doors. Like the Mark III. the Continental now wore hidden headlamps. Unibody construction was replaced by cheaper  body-on-frame construction; on the upside. the old rear leaf springs were replaced by coil springs. An automatic parking brake release. two-way power seats. power front disc brakes (rear drum). headlamp doors closed light. and  adjustable head restraints were standard. Another major change to the Continental lay under the skin; for the first time. it shared a common platform with the full-size Ford LTD and Mercury Marquis. The 1970 model was the first time a  standard Lincoln shared a chassis with the full-sized Fords. The Mercury had increasingly marketed itself as a "poor man's Lincoln" in the late 60s. "In essence. the new Lincoln was to the Ford and Mercury what the General Motors  C-Body offerings (especially the Cadillac) were to the medium priced car lines that employed the B-shell. " In mid-model year 1972. Lincoln's long history of distinct engines from its corporate counterparts came to an end as the 460  V8 became available in the Mercury Marquis and Colony Park. To move upmarket from Ford and Mercury. the full-size Lincoln product line gained two nameplates with two popular option packages. In 1970. the Town Car name (dormant  since 1959) was revived; in 1973. a corresponding two-door Town Coupe was introduced. In addition to the base Lincoln Continental. the higher trim level Lincoln Continental Town Car and Town Coupe offered a limousine-style vinyl top  and more standard equipment. Front disc brakes were standard. During its lifecycle. this generation of Continental saw a number of changes. From 1970 to 1974. each model year wore a different grille style. In 1973 and 1974. the  Continental (to comply with federal mandate) was fitted with 5-mph bumpers in the front and rear. respectively. In comparison to the 1970 model. the 5-mph bumpers seen on 1975-1979 models left the Continental 7. 5 inches longer.
