1975 Continental Mark IV Lipstick and White Luxury GroupIf a woman wants to make a statement, she'll often wear red lipstick. It's that little touch of color that can go a long way. When a Lincoln buyer wanted to make a statement in 1975, they could opt for the new Lipstick and White Luxury Group option for the Continental Mark IV. Elegant and crisp in White paint (code 9D), and topped with a White vinyl roof in either of two styles at no additional charge: the Full Normande Grain Vinyl* (code FW), or the Landau Vinyl Roof (code LW), also in Normande Grain. The Landau roof added chrome moldings at the front edge that blended with the door belt moldings and wrapped around the roof of the car for a dramatic new look.

A double paint stripe in Red (code D) ran down both sides of the car, the perfect accent to the Lipstick Red components found inside. New wide band white sidewall tires, Deep Dish Aluminum Wheels, and Premium Bodyside Molding in White added the final touches.

White Leather interior with Lipstick Red Cross Straps and ComponentsInside, lush White Leather seating in luxury group sew style with Lipstick Red Cross Straps and Lipstick Red Components (code DN) quickened your pulse and made even the most mundane trip exciting.

The Lipstick and White Luxury Group was perhaps the most popular of all luxury groups. In the two years it was available, it was the most popular, and for 1976, was offered with Lipstick Red paint/Red vinyl roof, White paint/Red vinyl roof, or Lipstick Red paint/White vinyl roof. Lipstick Red just proves that a little color can go a long way in a 1975 Continental Mark IV.

*Period documentation indicates that only the Landau style roof was provided, but Automotive Mileposts has documented cars with the Full vinyl roof from the factory. We can only guess this was done for those new owners who did not like the look of the half vinyl roof, or perhaps was done due to shortages of the moldings necessary for the Landau style roof.
