1973 Lincoln Continental Town Car
This 1973 Lincoln Continental Town Car is about paying a little and getting a lot. It has a big V8, luxury A/C interior, and incomparable ride quality. And it's all packaged in a survivor-grade luxury sedan that was lovingly cared for by only one owner.
This is a year for lovers of intricate design. For example, the headlight doors match the grille to give this executive sedan a sporty appeal. There is a bright trim line that starts at the front fender and follows the sheetmetal crease all the way along the Continental's distinctive profile. It was built before new bumper laws took full effect, so they remain an integral part of the design. This was all part of Lincoln's upper class image, so it's essential that it's as all as crisp and pristine as you see on this example. In fact, the only upgrade we can find is that this one is suspected to have some paint work during its life. The Ginger Brown Metallic is factory-correct, and still coordinates nicely with the full vinyl top, but the level of sparkle it has makes us suspect a quality upgrade at some point.
The full tan interior has been expertly preserved. After all, averaging less than 1,300 miles annually means little time to wear in the car. So the moment you sink into the armchair-like comfort, you are transformed into a world of luxury. The back seat is more spacious than many full-sized cars today, and the giant trunk is outfitted with more plush carpeting and a full-sized spare with its own matching cover. In fact, with the condition of the carpets, door panels, headliner, and wood paneling, it feels sophisticated and elegant like an upscale private club. And just like the best exclusive memberships, there are plenty of perks. This includes power windows, power locks, power seat, and the original AM/FM stereo radio and they're all still working correctly today! Plus, the factory air conditioning has been upgraded to R134a to continue keeping you cool.
Ford's smooth and refined 460 cubic inch V8 has a fantastic presentation in the engine bay, right down to the decals. It provides effortless performance in the Continental. This was the beginning of the lower compression era, and since the motor is believed to be original, that's a good thing. After all, you now have a survivor that's already built to handle unleaded. Plus, the big V8 retains enough torque to pull a boat. Of course, you will likely never want to tow a yacht in this big bodied car, but it's this kind of available strength that allows you to smoothly pull away from the stoplight. While this is the perfect car for the drive-in (after all, its interior is more comfortable than any movie theater seat,) there's much more to the Town Car. It has power steering, front disc brakes, and a three-speed automatic transmission. So you can spend all-day Sunday cruising effortlessly.
Are you starting to get the full picture on this one? It's such a respected one-owner classic that it even comes with the original dealer order form and factory buildsheet. It's the preserved luxury cruiser with a few of the right subtle upgrades, and it can all be yours for one fantastic price. Call today!!!
