1979 Lincoln Continental Collectors Series Sedan

Beautiful ULTRA LOW mileage 1979 Collectors Series Lincoln Continental for sale!
This was the ‘send off’ model for the LAST large American car of its time. Cadillac & Chrysler had downsized their cars in '77. ALL possible Lincoln Continental options came standard, plus special Collector's Series features were added. These cars cost roughly double the price of a base Continental in 1979.
All options on this car work, save two: The floor mounted foot control radio scan switch is not working. The front passenger side door lock currently only operates push-pull style. A simple regulator is needed to make the power lock work again. All other locks operate as power locks.
- 12,986 actual miles; speedometer needle at rest blocks the first digit on odometer...see pics
- Originally an estate owned car from the south eastern USA
- Kasman II Special cashmere cloth seat coverings
- Florida title and reg; in storage in Long Island New York
