1982 Lincoln Mark Series Bill Blass Edition
I bought this rare classic in pristine condition from Florida on 4/29/14, on ebay, and had it shipped to southern California. I have been living in China for past 6 years, but the condition and color of this Mark, I could not resist buying it! .... The vehicle has been kept in a garage, and covered, ever since that time. I registered it with CA Dept of Motor Vehicle, and obtained a PNO-REG certificate, in my name, dated 4/27/14. ...... Why do I sell it now? ... Storage cost, +, I'm not here to drive it to justify the storage cost of $3,000/yr!!! .... That was short history with me! ...... Now, the Mark itself: ........... The pictures I'm inserting are all the ones taken in Florida and posted on ebay when I bought it. Everything is exactly the same! The paint, simulated convertible top, chrome bumpers and mouldings, rubber inserts, wire wheels, mirrors, grill, and the rest of exterior are all in great and like-New condition, as you see on the pictures! ...... This classic is absolutely eye-catching and very beautiful! ....... Inside: the front seat cover had been re-upholstered professionally before, to match perfectly with the rear leather seat and door panels, all look just like factory. Headliner is perfect, carpet, original and like New, dash and door panels all great and no cracks. Inside, also no negative surprises, just as outside! ............. Mechanical condition: .. The catalytic converter had been REMOVED in Florida! Any California buyer MUST install it to pass the smog! Any other buyers, you may not have to worry about it, the vehicle RUNS AND DRIVES PERFECTLY and smooth! .... Engine starts right up, NO SMOKES....NO LEAKS!! (I had disconnected the battery while in China, and last week, upon my return, connected, and started immediately, I had changed the battery last year, when I could not start!)... Muffeler, makes a little noise, not loud! Transmission shift perfectly, brakes are great, A/C and heater work fine, steering, cornering, shocks, radio, all are great! All power switches work, door locks, Windows and seats! I have NOT tried keyless entry myself! All the glass are spotless, the WHITE top is literally like New. This Mark drives like a dream in my 2-mile test drive, before retiring it in its current location, and left alone for over 2 years!! ...... Poor Bill Blass, needs more attention, a good home, and an active driver! .................. I, the seller, an very proud to present my Lincoln Mark VI Bill Blass Edition to the public! Have confidence in my car,....and I hope, and expect that you, the buyer, also bid with confidence! ...... I could list it when I was in China, but I wanted to make it available for inspection to ebay buyers, so I had to wait to be back to the U.S. .... It can be shown any day, except June 15-21 (I fly to New York to see my new grand daughter, for the first time!...Thank you!)... I will leave the U.S. On July 5. So, all the transaction must be completed a few days before that. The vehicle is NOT available for sale locally, as it's parked in a garage and not displayed. So, ebay, as always, is my only trusted and effective source! .......... Please, make sure you know what you're bidding on, know your finances, and your situation, be ready to pay for it as instructed, ...and allow yourself to inspect the car BEFORE bidding, if that's what you want! I trusted my eyes and the information and the pictures presented by the seller on ebay 2 years ago, and I was right! I have had no regrets buying and owning this absolute beauty,...my only regret is that I MUST depart with it! ......hopefully, the lucky ebay winner and buyer will keep this very rare classic, in such a remarkable condition, and super low mileage (ORIGINAL), and drive it around as often as possible, with proud of such an icon in remarkable American auto manufacturing, technology and design of 34 years ago! .......... Please respect your words and bidding intentions, respect the seller, and respect ebay for its public, for profit, service. Thank you very much! ....... My time in the U.S. this time is limited, so, sorry, I ask for a shorter deposit time and a higher amount! ...............Enjoy my photo show!............ NO warranty or guarantee of any kind given, the statements are all based on my knowledge of this vehicle, the period of owning and my very limited usage, and are all sincere! Any bid, is considered binding, entered into a binding contract! Thank you! ....Paul!
