BEAUTIFUL RARE BLACK DIAMOND EDITION xxxx LINCOLN MARK IVBefore I get into the description of the car, let me give you a little history on the rarity of the BLACK DIAMOND EDITION MARK IVFor xxxx, four designer editions were offered: Bill Blass Edition, Cartier Edition, Givenchy Edition, and the Pucci EditionHowever, the rarest edition Mark IV was the Black Diamond Luxury Group. It started off with a basic xxxx Continental Mark IV, painted in a special Black Diamond Fire Metallic paint (code 1L, see picture), which was introduced late in the year specifically for this option. Topped by a Custom Landau Black Cayman-grain vinyl roof (code UA) with wide chrome moldings which featured a distinctive Alligator-grain vinyl pattern. This particular vinyl has a shinier finish from the manufacturing process, giving it an almost patent leather look, although not quite that shiny. It does have a higher level of gloss than most automotive vinyls commonly used for vinyl roof installations.Inside, a choice of Black Velour or Black Leather was available, both with Black Patent Leather Cross Straps. A few cars were reportedly built with either Dove Grey Versailles Velour or Dove Grey Leather and Vinyl, which were the same interiors used in the Cartier Designer Edition, but they used a different sew pattern, and did not feature the unique cross straps on the seats.
