Lincoln Continental 1975
For 1975, the exterior of the Lincoln Continental underwent a major revision. Although the body below the beltline saw only minor change (the taillights redesigned in the style of the Mark IV), the roofline was completely restyled. To separate itself from the Mark IV, the two-door Continental/Town Coupe adopted a fully pillared roofline with a square opera window in the C-pillar. In place of the pillared hardtop shared with the Mercury Marquis and Ford LTD, the four-door Continental/Town Car adopted a wide B-pillar; to distinguish itself from the Cadillac Sixty Special Brougham; Town Cars were given the oval opera window introduced on the Mark IV.
