1964 Lincoln Continental Suicide 4 Door Convertible
A 1964 Lincoln Continental Convertible that is a very solid car and really just needs some small details addressed to be a very nice car. The motor sounds great, trans and brakes are great, and the overall body is very very solid for what these cars are typically. The car was put into dry storage after it was used for filming on the movie Parkland several years ago, so it will need the necessary service work that is typical from being stored over a period of time.. The car was recently pulled out of the dry storage and fired up, and the motor sounds great, the transmission goes right into gear with no effort, along with the brakes being in full working order, but the car could use the fine tuning or flushing to systems that need to be addressed from sitting. There are some issues like the Convertible Top Hydraulic Lines needs to be replaced due to leakage, and it needs the typical power window switches replaced or rebuilt, along with other smaller items here or there. The front vent windows and front door windows are in working order, and the top system works if you keep pouring fluid into the reservoir as the pressure lines leak, which means the electrics are fine. The car can also use a new canvas top could even though it isn't torn, but it is old and the rear glass is yellowed, along with some stains that are not easy to remove from a white colored top. The supplied pictures of the bottom of the car will show how solid and original this car is, and you can see in these pics that the Unibody, Floors, Rockers, Trunk, Deck Lid, Door Bottoms, Fenders, Quarters, are all in awesome original and solid shape, and there is not any of the typical rust repair that these cars are known for. There are a couple small bubble spots under the older paint job supplied in the gallery, and in the pictures you will see there are 3 bubble spots with two literally being smaller than a dime, and the 3rd spot being a common spot behind the passenger door about half way up the quarter panel. That is basically all the rust issues with this one, and that is extremely hard to find, so please don't miss out on a hard to find clean freshen up car. The rear trunk lid is in perfect shape and has not been welded on or previous rust repair, and that is basically Unheard of with these cars. The trunk is solid and rust free with the exception of a small rust hole about the size of a half dollar at the bottom of the spare tire sump, and it is an extremely easy fix. The car is available for sale or trade in another classified post, so the auction could end at the time of an early sale from another listing, so if you are looking for one of these cars don't let a good on get away, which is why there is a Buy it Now option. This is a very nice example that really only needs tidy up, so this car will save you considerable money that would need to be spent on the typical bring back from the dead project, because we all know how expensive Rust Repair, Interior, and Chrome on these cars can be, but this car is clean and solid without those expenses. The Chrome and Trim is very nice and bright without the typical tired appearance most cars this age have without being rechromed, and that is also a huge freshen up savings packaged right into this solid example. The Black/White Tuxedo Interior and leather is in awesome shape with little to no cracking or dried area's, and the interior should be run exactly as it is as can be seen in the pictures. That is huge restoration saving over most other restoration cars on the market due to the shear cost to actually replace the interior in these cars, and this car absolutely doesn't need any interior replacement unless you want a custom styled interior. If you have specific picture or detail needs, please feel free to contact me via text/phone at 580-263-0454. I have way more pictures that can be offered here, and I cannot stress enough how decent and clean this car is for what the reserve is. It is not often you can find an Continental Convertible that is as solid and tidy as this car is for a easy project to work on and drive at the same time. Also, please look at my my car sales feedback on here, because I go out of my way to make sure the car is represented correctly, and the buyer feedback shows just that.
