WILL BE SOLD............................NO RESERVE

A Very nice driver!!

Greetings to All!! After 23 years in business(44 years if you count when I started), I have decided to Retire!! International Motorcars of Pittsburgh LTD. will close its doors on May 31, 2016(I might be a few weeks late!), after being located in Export, Pa 15632 since June of 2005. It's been a GREAT home, and I feel quite privileged to have been a part of this fabulous community!!
The remaining inventory will be fully sorted, unless noted in the description, before being listed and sold. EVERYTHING on the website is for sale. Eventually, It will all be sold here at NO RESERVE! Please be a REAL buyer when you win! Ask whomever you need to ask, and please have your finances in hand.!!
NOTE************ I have had TWO deals complete since the several NO RESERVE Auctions that we have run here over the last several weeks. Apparently bidding and winning means nothing. It is too bad that there are not more ethical folks here anymore(And you know exactly who you are!!)...... SO....Please have all funds in place, and all intentions of completing this deal.
We are down to 10 cars remaining!! I would like to have them all gone!!!
Inspections during the auction are welcomed and Encouraged
Greetings to All!! imotors is quite pleased to offer possibly the BEST deal on one of these Available anywhere! This is very handsome car that I purchased from a gentleman who specializes in old Lincoln Parts....In fact he even grows them!!! He took it on a trade from a fellow who bought it from him in 2007, restored it to driver quality, and enjoyed it for many years. This fellow recently decided it was time for another project, so he traded it back on a 59 Convertible. I then bought it from the Lincoln fellow.
PLEASE NOTE..............
So, when the guy restored this car back in 07, He decided to design his own system to operate the convertible top. He eliminated all of the micro switches, and some of the relays that operate the super complicated convertible top system in these cars. The factory switch is not operating anymore. There is now a separate button, or switch to perform each step of the top operation individually. No more bad micro switches, or getting the top stuck somewhere in mid-operation. It works just fine, but could be returned to original if you wanted to!
Upon our acquisition, we installed all rebuilt power window switches, as the old ones were sticky. We also installed fresh grease seals in the rear end. We made sure that all of the windows, including both vents, were operating. The transmission was rebuilt last year(before we bought it), and while it was out, both exhaust manifolds were replaced with fresh gaskets. The A/C compressor is locked up, and a used one for replacement is included with the sale.
I have a folder full of receipts, indicating what was done during the restoration. The fellow basically did a mechanical rebuild excluding the engine and transmission. He did the complete brakes and exhaust. Belts/hoses, and a water pump were done, as were rear air shocks. Five new radial tires, and a new center link for the steering. It also has a rebuilt alternator, and a new voltage regulator. This Lincoln runs, rides and drives very well.
The exterior is beautiful, and makes a very nice appearance. The paint is bright and shiny and was redone during restoration. The rear quarter panels behind the wheels had been patched during restoration. If you look closely, you can see the seems. There are photos of this below. The underbody is nice and solid with no signs of previous damage or repair. I have receipts for a re-chromed front bumper center and ends, along with a center rear bumper and guards. The rear center upper is covered with chrome tape? The inserts that attach to the body behind each end of the bumper are pitted. The grille is slightly pitted. The window frames are slightly pitted. The Leather interior is original, and is in nice condition. The convertible top was replaced during restoration. As mentioned above, all windows are currently working, along with the convertible top. The factory cruise control does not work. The antenna has its own switch under the dash, and is sluggish, but does work. The aftermarket AM/FM radio currently works. We have an original radio that is included with the sale. It will probably need to be rebuilt before installation.

Take a look at the 50 photographs below and see the actual condition of this One of A Kind Continental Convertible!

By bidding you agree to all terms set forth below.

Many Thanks for Your Interest!
Good Luck with Your Bidding!!

Our hobbyist restored Lincoln is just Gorgeous!!!

You can tell by the condition of the paint that this Beauty was Always Garaged and Pampered!!

The top of the rear bumper is covered with chrome tape.

Note the slight evidence of previous patchwork.

As I'm sure you all know, it is very typical for this not to work. This one works great!.

Nothing like suicide doors!
