Ford Motor Company celebrated its 75th year in the automobile business in 1978. To commemorate this milestone, Ford produced two special automobiles as limited editions. The 1978 Continental Mark V was one example; the Thunderbird was the other. The Mark V version was limited to the production of only 5,159 cars. The car was available in only two colors: Diamond Blue, as seen on this Mark V and Jubilee Gold. The color was used as the connecting theme throughout the presentation of the car.
