This is Jim French's 1974 Lincoln Mark IV, which he
describes as the Black Beautiful Battleship. The car is
triple back with black paint, black vinyl top and black
interior. The car is equipped with the 460 cid engine.
The car is comfortable and hunkers down its 5400 lb to
the road. At this weight though, maneuverability is done
more by steering committee than by steering wheel. Even
so, the car is a pleasure to drive.
