Parts sources for a 1977 Lincoln

September 1, 2009 | By Richard Prince


I am having a problem finding body parts for my 1977 Lincoln Mark V Cartier Edition. I especially need to find someone who can make parts or restore what I have left or possibly supply me with new parts or ones in good condition. The vehicle has been in no accidents and has been garaged for 22 years.

Your magazine has really given me hope that this car can be restored to its former glory.


Since you’re in Miami, I suggest that you contact Dave Walters at Walters Engineering ( ) to discuss making hard-to-find parts.

There also are a good number of businesses that deal in used parts for vintage Lincolns, including Aabar’s Cadillac and Lincoln Salvage ( ), Earle Brown ( ), Lincoln Parts International ( ), The Lincoln Farm ( ) and Lincoln Land ( ).

In addition, consider joining the Lincoln & Continental Owner’s Club ( if you are not already a member. As is normallythe case, this association of like-minded enthusiasts can be an excellent resource for parts and information.
