Description:

1986 Lincoln Continental Sedan

This car was purchased from an auto auction in California as a donation car due to the death of the owner. I flew out and drove this car back to Missouri, with no mechanical issues. Unfortunately, I was not aware that California changes title types on all donated cars to JUNK status, and requires a full inspection of the vehicle to change it back to a regular title. I was able to get the full inspections completed in Missouri, but California would not honor them. Missouri issued a regular title for the vehicle in 2016, with a prior salvage status noted on it.

As you can see in the pics, the car is in very good condition. The engine runs great, and a new fuel pump was installed in 2015. The driver seat was re-upholstered in 2010. The air suspension works properly, and it takes over a week for it to bleed down. I have a junk battery in it to start it today, but it will need a new battery if you plan to drive it home. Tires have good tread. I put insurance on this last week and drove it all over town, at least 100 miles with no major issues. It runs rough at low speed (idle). I put new spark plugs in it but this did not resolve it. I am thinking it just needs a complete tune-up, as it has been sitting for a few years. The instrument dash cluster works, but the mileage shows ERROR on the display. I am not sure what is needed to correct this issue. My intent was to restore this car, but just never got around to it.

Car runs and drives, so you can drive it home if you desire. Delivery may also be possible, depending on where it needs to go. Drop me a note to see if it is an option.

NADA shows this car at $9,050 for high retail, and $3,925 for average retail. Starting bid is well under wholesale value.


This could be a very rare classic show car with the right touch.
