24. 1972 Lincoln Continental Mark IV

The previous model Lincoln Continental’s were well made, popular vehicles. The Mark IV was a misstep for the Lincoln company. Stylistic choices are among the top complaints for the Mark IV. A tacky opera window, a standard vinyl roof, and flip-up headlights that didn’t always work were the among the top offenders. The Mark IV handled horribly, needing plenty of room to navigate a corner and requiring constant attention to keep it from veering off the road. The Mark IV had a decent engine, producing 365 horsepower, but the tightening emissions restrictions crippled the engine, After all the changes to comply with emission standards, the Mark IV was reduced to a whimpy 212 horsepower engine.
