Nineteen seventy-two was the first year of the Continental Mark IV, and the only year with the attractive chrome bumpers, which grew increasingly larger in coming years to meet U.S. safety regulations. The example offered here has been fortunate to have been a collector’s item since the first day of its life. It remains in completely original and “new” condition, pristine from tip to tail, with just 906 actual miles. In fact, it is believed to be one of the lowest-mileage and most original Mark IVs remaining in existence. This is the ideal choice for any enthusiast looking to complete a collection of Continentals, or simply for anyone who appreciates factory-fresh excellence.
