When you see Lincoln Versailles and think: Oh my God! It’s a bit like a Ford Granada or Mercury Monarch from the same era, that’s right. Lincoln Versailles was Lincoln’s first mid-size sedan and was based largely on the offerings of the aforementioned conglomerate. Lincoln Versailles had to compete with luxury offerings from Mercedes-Benz and BMW. This scenario did not unfold as hoped. Sales were disappointing and soon the curtain fell on Lincoln Versailles. This makes a Lincoln Versailles in good condition a rarity these days. It is virtually impossible to find a Lincoln Versailles that was originally delivered in the Netherlands. This example was also handed over to His Royal Highness Prince Bernard.
The car has been very well maintained over the years and is therefore still in very good condition. The paintwork looks clean and has only slight signs of wear here and there. The body is in good condition. The sheet metal is nice and fluffy all over and it fits neatly. The car stands on original rims with good sized tires.
The interior of the Lincoln is as beautifully finished as the color combination on the outside. The blue leather is in very good condition. The headline was recently renewed and is of course in new condition. The blue leather on the seats is in a beautiful original condition and is superbly supple. As befits an American car, the seats are very comfortable. The car is of course equipped to match a luxury American sedan, so you have access to cruise control, air conditioning, electric seats and electric windows.
The car is powered by a 4.9-liter Ford-Windsor V8 engine mated to a three-speed automatic transmission. The engine produces 135 horsepower and is specifically tuned to deliver massive torque at low revs. The technology has been very well maintained over the years. The engine develops its power at a speed of 3700 rpm, and therefore does not have to make an effort. It makes the car practically indestructible. The brakes are easy to dose and the chassis is of course tuned for a comfortable ride. The suspension is very soft, and when cornering, the car hangs comfortably from one ear in a way that modern American cars no longer do.
The car comes with some public documents including a letter stating that the car is actually owned by Prince Bernard. In short, a very rare original Lincoln Versailles was delivered in Holland.
