1979 Lincoln Continental Leather
I am listing this car for a good friend, he was building the ultimate american luxury car. Mechanically completely rebuilt with a emphasis on performance and handling. The best of both worlds, Iconic 70's American style and luxury with 60's Muscle car performance. I have been driving this car lately and have enjoyed the experience, it is the way things should have been.
Below is a description of the work from Steve the owner and builder. He chose a career change from Mechanic/Shop owner to the IT field and as such has no where to work on his cars anymore. He started with a rust free NC. Mark V, but that said the paint is faded and checked in places, the top is dry and checked, the top of the rear seat is split due to exposure to the sun and there are some obvious spots of surface rust, chips in the paint, and pitting in the trim.
The body came off the frame and all mechanical parts came apart the frame cleaned with the por frame kit. Which had acid wash and sealer then por on frame twice. All parts of suspension cleaned and painted. All bushings and joints replaced. The rear sway bar bushings are only ones stock. New fuel and brake lines stainless steel. Engine,transmission and rear end all rebuilt. New springs and shocks. New coolant system with Evans waterless coolant.a/c system has new compressor and works great. Front seats recovered. New tires. Rear end 3.50 gears. Retro sound radio and amplifier. ( the radio fader stopped working). The front seat up and down motor in front stopped working this summer. The rest of the seats work. I have a 4 speed automatic that I was going to put in. Also have a gear venders overdrive unit for a c6 transmission to sell also.
I have the car in my possession, so I should be able to answer most questions but can put any serious bidder in touch with Steve directly.
