1978 Lincoln Continental Continental Town Car
1978 Lincoln Continental Town Car For Sale
I am selling this vehicle for a dearfriend. The engine is in perfect working condition. The engine is a 460 CID 4bbl (best Ford engine ever made), has after market carb installed btw, working perfectly. Have original carb as well. The vehicle was bought from original owner Estate over 10 years ago.
The vehicle was purchased for a Father Son project that never got off the ground :-) I am a Ford Motor Company Factory Trained mechanic for over 35 years, also ASE certified Master Mechanic. I completed work on getting the car running after 10 years sitting on the grounds next to the garage of my friend.
This car runs smoothly, as it should, low original miles and the trans is aC6, shifts perfectly btw.No leaks of PS or other oils that I can see. The Pitman arm seal was recently changed. AC was working last tested and all electrical/lighting works great. Yes the headlamp doors hold! The coffee can and vacuum reservoirs are in great shape.
Now, it will need an exhaust system (CAT'S OK) and brake work. No brake lines leaking, no coolant leaks or fueletc. The vehicle has been sitting for 10 years. Needs a windshield (interesting story how that happened :-). Other than that, all the rust you see is surface, except by B panel rear door jam needs 2 small patches.
Folks, this vehicle is a perfect low cost restoration candidate, that I have not seen in many years. I can send you a video of running condition, if your interested. Other than that the vehicle is located in Kenosha, Wisconsin just over the southern border by 4 miles.
I will show as many pics that EBay will allow. I will respond to all inquiries ASAP. Please no tire kickers, ( Life is too Short) :-)
With a small labor of love,a partialrestoration can pull 17k $+ dollars easy, a100% restoration will go 30k $ dollars plus. Hence, the low price to get started. Have fun :-) I will be on site to answer all questions at time of inquiry orpurchase, free of charge!
