What is a "Cartier Edition" Lincoln?
We all have seen many 'Cartier' Lincolns
being offered for sale on the internet, magazine, or newspaper classified ads. Be forewarned! Just
because a Lincoln has a 'Cartier' clock/chronometer does not necessarily make it a 'Cartier
Edition' Lincoln. Since the introduction of the 1969 Lincoln Continental Mark III in mid-1968, Cartier
chronometers were standard feature of the instrument panel cluster on many (but not all)
Lincolns. The "Cartier Edition" originally appeared with the 1976 Lincoln Continental Mark IV
as one of the Designer Series Marks that signified a fully equipped Mark IV that had a specific
color scheme and luxury appointments not available on any other model. (The original Cartier
Edition Mark IV had the unique dove-gray color scheme with special roof chrome and special
body-side molding not available on other models.) In later models, the "Cartier Edition" Designer Series was
offered in the Town Car and Continental models as well as the Marks as being the high-end
fully equipped luxury editions of a specific model year. The Cartier Edition Lincolns remains one of the most
sought after classic Lincoln.
The "Cartier Edition" Designer Series Town Car ended with the 2003 production year. In 2004, it was replaced by the "Ultimate Edition" Town Car. With the 2005 model year, it became the Signature Series Limited Town Car edition. Later, it became the Lincoln Town Car "Designer Series" Edition.
