Color: Turquoise moon glow metallic 1979 Lincoln Mark 5

This all original survivor car is one of the best you'll find....dead stock original and everything works, no restoration, original 47,000 miles.

The original owner, B.K. Paxton was a prominent bank owner and the owner of the 2 largest silver producing mines in Southern Colorado. (Creede, Colorado).
B.K. purchased the vehicle new from the Durango, Colorado Lincoln dealer in 1979 for his wife. The color was significant, as turquoise is a by-product of Silver mining. Turquoise moon glow metallic was extra cost.

The Lincoln stayed in the family for 3 generations, spending most of the time in Paxton's hangar. The vehicle has only been driven 47,000 miles.

Paxton was a pilot and friends of Jimmy Doolittle and John Wayne.
