That's what I said in first post. It's mix up between Ford-Lincoln-Mercury cars from the same generation, but since side and front(except hidden lights) is taken from Lincoln I believe we may leave it as one. Some cars in GTA aren't made from exactly one model, so it's hard sometime to pick one of them.

Yeah. After looking at it more, there's no doubt it's a Lincoln. I enjoy driving this car, but the handling and suspension are very soft.

What did I write there in your opinion? I wrote that Thuderbirds had hidden headlights that's why Virgo front is based on Mercur. Only taillights are taken from Thunderbird as it had different B pillar and didn't have small fins.

Oh. I didn't see that. I still think it COULD be a Thunderbird. Unless someone wants to change it to custom 1977 Lincoln Continental Mark V. I could see this as a Frankenstein of different Ford Motor Company cars.

Taillights may be taken from Thunderbird, but rest of the body is clearly based on Lincoln Mk V. This car is basically speaking mix up between FLM cars from late'70. Side is taken from Lincoln, front is mix up (classic light are taken from Mercury as both Ford and Lincoln had hidden headlights) and back is taken from Thunderbird.

Thunderbirds from '77-'79 had hidden lights, too. I know the car is closest to a Lincoln, but the entire rear half of the car is from a 1977-1979 Ford Thunderbird.

Actually, I think this is a 1977-78 Ford Thunderbird. The taillights have pseudo-Thunderbird emblems. www.videovoom.com/VideosOfCars%20copy/images/Photos1978FordThunderbird/1978FordThunderbirdRearAngleDriversSide1.JPG I know this lacks the quarter windows that the Thunderbird has, but the taillights are the same. The taillights are COMPLETELY WRONG for a Lincoln. carphotos.cardomain.com/ride_images/2/3515/4601/21287300001_large.jpg Click the links and you'll see this isn't a Lincoln, but a Thunderbird.

It's a 1977 Lincoln Continental Mark V, because of the grille, hood, quarter window, body line, & bumper.

Looks more like a 77/78 Continental with Cougar windows

Along with the Blista Compact, this is the only car to appear identically to its previous incarnations of the GTA series.
