1976 Lincoln Mark IV Continental
------------------------This car is out of Fort Myers, FloridaI obtained it though the wounded warrior program
where the proceeds go to are military veterans and their survivors.The history I have on this car is,
It is a 1 family owned car, the original owner passed away 1994
and the car was inherited by the owners daughter.It then went to Minnesota where it sat 80% of the time in a barnout of the weather.
This is an awesome vehicle, it runs and drives andthe options all work even the AC.The headlight doors on this car stay down for over 2 weeksso far (for you not old enough to have been aroundwhen these cars were new, the doors work offvacuum and would eventually open as the vacuum bled offif not run regular) Yes they work as they should up with headlights on.

*COLD AIR CONDITIONING * TILT STEERING and CRUISE CONTROL

--------------------------------------- This is one awesome original everything, never been touchappearance cosmetically barn find.Clean up and enjoy whats here or restore it,it won't take much, there is a lot of car here to begin with.It's fun to drive, everybody looks as you do.
----------------------------- THE DRIVE TRAIN This car is amazing, even now with the colder weather,to start it, step once on the gas pedal to set the chokeand this baby starts up on the first turn of the enginejust like it did brand new.
This 7.5 V8 engine is perfect, real strong, responsive and solid, it sounds great, runs smooth, no unusual or bad noises nor
no signs ofoil burning, no drive train leaks.
It runs at normal operating temperature as well as normal oil pressure.
The C6 AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION shifts out perfect
in all 3 forward gears and reverse.
The REAR DIFFERENTIAL has no issues
I have done nothing to this car, it is as it has been when I got it,I primed the carburetor and it started right up.The plug wires, cap and rotor are unknown how old,the carburetor has a flat spot when full throttle acceleratingand with this said, the engine runs awesome, smoothhits on all 8.I put 10 gallons of fresh gas in it and 1 can of sea foam.The gas in the tank smelled old before I did so.The gas gauge does not seem to be working, with 10 gallonsof gas, it just barely moves and the tank is not that big.
The radiator and anti freeze is clean,transmission fluid is clean,The engine oil is clean.
I would advise change all the fan belts, do a radiatorflush and new anti freeze installed, do a oil change with new filtergrease the chassis and u-joints.I do not hear any u-joint squeaks but the front end suspension is real dry in desperate need of grease.
I do not have service records and I do not knowhow long ago all of this was serviced.It is completely drivable otherwisebut you as the new owner might consider hauling this backwith you or your welcome to do the maintenance here at my shopand drive it home.
------------------------------ THE BODY NO HAIL, NO FLOOD, NO WRECKSALL ORIGINAL PAINT EVERY WHERE
This is one solid vehicle. The body has NO DINGS or NO DENTSThe car is as straight as an arrow when
eye balling it down the sides and top
There is a tiny bit of rust as seen in pictures.The rust is located down low on both front fenders at the wheel opening.There NO signs of abuse.Both doors open and close real solid and perfect.The power windows both work however the driver side needsthe new gear in the window motor, a fix for $18.00 at the part store.
Every option works, even the power antenna, the AC has beenconverted to 134 freon and it ice cold, YES the heater works great.
THE PAINT JOB is great and real shinny when wetas seen in the pictures. This vehicle could be carefully buffedand it would look great. I did not want to contaminate itin case somebody wanted to touch it up or clear coat it.There on the hood as seen in the pictures the paint hasoxidized away down to the factory primer and its an easyfix due to its all original paint never been worked on.The body side molding on the passenger side door ismissing and I am trying, with good prospects, locating a new one.
The picture showing the driver side rear wheel not matchingwas taken with the spare on the car and the paint washed wet.
The picture showing the car with the factory matching wheelon the driver side rear is what the vehicle looks like nowwith the paint dry not wet with water.
The factory wheel tire was leaking around the rim and
I took it off and had it fixed.
------------------------- THE INTERIOR Is VERY CLEAN and GOOD SHAPE.It is all original leather, the driver seat shows wear but not ripped.The grab straps on both doors are cracked as seen in pictures.The dash is perfect. The chrome around the gauges is nearly perfect.
The carpet is in perfect shape, it's had them floor mats down
as seen in the pictures since new.Note: the windshield wipers are adjustable intermittent and they workthat way good or good on regular wipe however they don't parkthe way they should, they stop where ever when you turn them off.You have to wait till there down to turn them off, replacethe wiper motor and that will fix that.
------------------------- OVERALL You got a lot of car here that drives out good, consideringthis gem is 41 years old.All 4 tires match in great shape, deep tread, not dry rotted, theexhaust is perfect and quiet, The factory stereo workshowever the speakers could be replaced to make it perfect.The headliner has a very small hole above
where the passenger front sits otherwise still stitchedwell and holding up perfect.The vinyl top on the scale of 10 is a 8, the rust as seen in the picturearound the belt molding on the top is surface only no rust holeand it does not appear to have damaged under the top. Thereis a vinyl trim underneath the belt molding for the top andits dry and brittle plus it shrank up. The vinyl top hasvery lite hail damage around the back window not noticeable,
BUT there is no hail damage to the body.All of the glass on this car is in great shape.
I don't see any thing altered under the hood,
it is as the factory made it.The brake master cylinder rear chamber was emptyand I have not seen where it leaked out. The brake pedalwent to the floor, I filled the master cylinder upwith brake fluid and pumped the brakes up and it has a brakepedal now that holds, but that would be something to check out.
There is no fluid leaks when parked in your driveway over night.Under the hood has not been cleaned, fact is the only thingcleaned on the car was an exterior wash job and
rubbed down the interior leatherwith conditioner made for car leather upholstery.
