1960 Lincoln Continental Mark V Convertible Rare Find Chick-fil-a Estate

The Ford Motor Company's massive gamble on the 1958 Lincoln lineup resulted in a new plant, new body construction technique, new engine, new suspension design and numerous other changes. "Hot rod Lincolns" were beloved by enthusiasts by the mid-1950s, and that reputation for speed stayed with the new Mark III Continental of 1958-60, which sported a . V-8 engine with a 4.30 x 3.70-inch bore and stroke and a 10.5:1 compression ratio. The new two-barrel Carter ABD-2965S carburetor brought the pow...er ratings to 315hp, and bumped highway ratings to 16 MPG. This 430 V-8 engine would continue in the Lincoln lineup through 1965, and it has earned its reputation for durability. Like its lesser Lincoln brethren, the Continentals of 1958-'60 shared a standard Twin Range Turbo Drive three-speed planetary gear automatic transmission. Herb Scheffer, president of The Lincoln/Mercury Old Parts Store and a specialist in 1958-'60 Lincolns, explains: "Mechanically, this is a real 'stone crusher' engine. It's the same with the transmission--they will both continue to work, even when they're not in good shape. Because the Mark III, IV and V were Lincoln's flagships, they came nicely equipped with features like a six-way power seat, tinted glass, power side, vent and rear windows and a Travel Tuner radio. Desirable options included an automatic headlamp dimmer, power door locks, Directed Power differential and leather upholstery, which was standard on Convertibles. This particular example is from the Estate of Truitt Cathy, Founder of "Chick-fil-A". The car is absolutely beautiful; the paint, chrome and interior all look outstanding. The car does have some rust on the bottom of the rockers that will need attention if you want to make the car a number 1 show car. Some other notes on the car include: Power Windows & Vent Windows, Power Seat, Auto Headlamp Dimmer, Original Color, Automatic 3 Speed, 1 of 2,044, Power Steering & Brakes, Power Convertible Top, AM Pushbutton Town & Country Radio w/ Power Antenna, Factory Clock, Original Wheel Covers.
