For your listening pleasure in 1965, the Corvair could be equipped with either a basic equipment AM radio or one with both AM and FM frequencies. Of course the FM is also in stereo. There are three Flat-6 engine power options as well as three transmission choices in '65 which feature the two speed automatic and the 3 or 4 speed standard; the later two have just been upgraded.

The EPA mandate has reduced emissions greatly by 1974, but these have also resulted in a reduction of power available for the Torino. The compression in almost all V8 engines has been dropped considerably, allowing them to run on low lead regular gasoline, which is needed for the catalytic converter. The car is now larger and, including the impact absorbing bumpers it weights in at up to 4,250 lbs. (1.928 kg)-a full 750 lbs (340kg) heavier than in 1968. The Elite could be equipped with three V8 engines, a 351 cu in (5.8 L), a 400 cu in (6.6 L) and the ultimate power is a 460 cu in (7.5 L). All of these V8 engines would be bolted to a three speed automatic transmission.

The Lincoln is the largest mass produced automobile anywhere, at two hundred thirty-three and seven-tens inches or 593.598 cm, it is imposing. It is only surpassed in size by 2 or 3 European ultra-luxurious, but these are larger capacity limousines and have very low production numbers. The only competitor left here, Cadillac is now smaller and will permanently change the meaning of luxurious transportation. The new Mark V, the Town Car or the Continental are the body styles available in '77. When the last of this generation Lincoln, left the assembly plant, in 1979, it marked the end of an era that equated large automobiles with wealth prestige, luxury and power. The base engine for 1977 is the small block 400-2V, but in all states except California the 460 big block with a 4 barrel carburetor is still an option.
