1966 Lincoln Continental

TIME LITTERALLY SLOWS DOWN FOR THIS STUNNING 1966 LINCOLN CONTINENTAL. NO MATTER WHAT A PERSON IS DOING THEY STOP, STAND UP, AND NUDGE THE PERSON NEXT TO THEM AS THEY POINT AT THIS PERFECT EXAMPLE OF MID 60'S LUXURY AND TIMELESS COOL.

THIS SEDAN WITH SUICIDE DOORS HAS LESS THAN 51,000 ORIGINAL MILES AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN IN AN ENCLOSED GARAGE SINCE THE DAY IT WAS DELIVERED TO DR. LEO R HAWKES. THE GOOD DOCTOR USED IT AS HIS DAILY DRIVER AND FOR HOUSE CALLS IN WHAT WAS THEN AND STILL IS RELATIVELY RURAL AREA IN THE OLD WEST. WHEN DR. HAWKES PASSED AWAY THE VEHICLE WAS BOUGHT BY A LINCOLN COLLECTOR THAT HAD THIS STUNNING CONTINENTAL ON DISPLAY IN DOORS ALONG WITH 18 OTHERS HE HAD IN HIS COLLECTION.

I'M THE THIRD OWNER AND HAVEN'T HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO ENJOY DRIVING IT MUCH YET BECAUSE THE TIMELINE FOR COMPLETING TASKS HAS DRAGGED FAR BEYOND WHAT I HAVE IMAGINED AS YOU'LL READ. THAT'S THE REASON WHY I HAVEN'T REGISTERED THE CAR IN FLORIDA YET... IT'S CURRENTLY INSURED THROUGH AMERICAN COLLECTORS FOR $35K. ONCE IT'S REGISTERED AND THE ROSEWOOD IS INSTALLED I PLAN ON HAVING AN APPRAISER COME OUT TO INCREASE THE INSURED AMOUNT.

IT HAS A NEW BLACK GLOSSY PAINT THAT WOULD REVEAL ANY FLAW IF ONE EXISTED ON THIS CAR.

PERFECT CHROME, LASER STRAIGHT BODY, NO BONDO, NO RUST. INSPECT THE DOOR JAMS, THEUNDERCARRIAGE, OR ANYWHERE YOU WANT ON THIS VEHICLE -IF YOU'RE A QUALIFIED BUYER THEN I'LL GIVE YOU $1,000 IF YOU FIND A SPEC OF RUST OR BONDO ON THIS VEHICLE.

THE ENGINE IS IN PERFECT WORKING ORDER AND WILL RUN FOREVER - IT'S A "MEL". IT'S BEEN PROPERLY CARED FOR AND MAINTAINED WITH A NEW STARTER ANDNEW C 6 TRANSMISSION. THE VEHICLE HAS NEVER OVERHEATED, NO VALVE OR HEADERISSUES, AND NO LEAKS. THE 462 IS ONE OF THOSE ENGINES YOU'LL FIND IN THE WEST TEXAS OIL FIELDS PUMPING OIL DEREKS FOR 40-50 YEARS STRAIGHT OR UNTIL THE HOLE RUNS DRY...

A/C HAS A NEW CONDENSER AND RUNS ICE COLD.

ALL POWER WINDOWS, LOCKS, AND SEATS THAT OPERATE LIKE NEW...

STEELE RUBBER PRODUCTS EXTRUDED ALL NEW RUBBER AND MOLDINGS FOR THE DOORS, WINDOWS, HEADLINER, TRUNK, AND HOOD. THIS TOOK 2 MONTHS.

IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A "STEAL" THEN KEEP LOOKING... IN ORDER TO PAINT A CLASSIC LUXURY VEHICLE BLACK (GLOSSY) IN FLORIDA AND DO ITRIGHTTHEN IT WILL COST A MINIMUM OF $8-12,000.00. OH, AND BE PREPARED TO WAIT A LONG TIME BEFORE IT'S FINISHED. WHEN I PAY TO GET SOMETHING DONE RIGHT THEN THAT'S WHAT I EXPECT, SO WHEN I PICKED UP THE VEHICLE AND IT DIDN'T MEET MY EXPECTATION I MADE THEM DO IT AGAIN. IT TOOK ME 9 MONTHS TO GET THIS VEHICLE BACK FROM PAINT.

LIKE I SAID THIS IS NOT A STEAL, BUT IT IS PRICED FAIR (NOT RETAIL) WITHOUT HAVING TO DO ANYTHING OR HAVE ANY PROBLEMS THENLOOK NO FURTHER.

THE ORIGINAL WHEELS AND HUBS CAN BE NEGOTIATED AS PART OF THE DEAL.

IF YOU WANT TO SEE THE VEHICLE THEN NO PROBLEM, BUT I WILL QUALIFY YOU AND ASK WHAT YOU'RE PREPARED TO PAY IF IT IS WHAT I SAY IT IS... I DON'T SELL VEHICLES FOR A LIVING, SO I'M NOT GOING TO JUST STOP MY LIFE AND MAKE TIME FOR JUST ANYONE...
