1979 Lincoln Continental
Up for sale is a one-of-a-kind MAGICAL 1979 Lincoln Continental Mark V
Get the respect you deserve in this super fly smooth-running sled.This is a red convertible/white top with electric leather seats, Cartier clock, and eight track stereo along with the obvious exterior features.I have enjoyed this car for about 3-4 years and ready to pass it along to another owner.Listed below are some of your possible questions:
Why did you buy it?
I originally bought this car to use in parades to advertise my business. It worked wonderfully with everyone wanting me to drive their beauty queen or a political candidate in regional parades.Obviously, this was the most memorable vehicle in the convoy.I attached magnetic signs to this car which advertised my business and had a captive audience unlike most advertising.
Why do you want to sell it?
I am almost 50 years old and have been happily married for 26 + years.I canâ€™t continue to test my marriage with all the young ladies would want to cruise around in this cool land yacht.I am (kinda) kidding, but I really need the room in my garage. I have enjoyed this hooptie, and Iâ€™m ready to pass it along to someone else.
What upgrades have you made since purchasing?
I added the easily detachable horns, the custom wheels and tires, added a â€œcow mooingâ€ horn, and about $ 350 worth of mechanic work.When I purchased this car, I took it to my mechanic and told him to fix anything wrong with it.He did and it cost about $ 350.I searched the world over (through the internet) to find the perfect horns and had them attached by a local body shop.They are easily detached and their mounting stand actually attaches to the frame UNDER the hood so no blemishes on the hoodâ€™s exterior.
What would you do if you kept it?
I would install a new muffler and spend about $ 2500-3000 on the interior.The interior is fine for parades, but some new white leather seat covers would really make this car pop!I would also give it a new paint job in the next few years.Mechanically speaking, itâ€™s fine.
Does the top work well?
This car has a white cloth top with hydraulic lift.When I purchased this car, I raised and lowered the top once.My mechanic checked it out, but his words were â€œDonâ€™t raise and lower this top anymore than you have to.Itâ€™s an old car and just keep it down if you can.â€Iâ€™ve used this man for many years and trust him completely.Therefore, I have never raised the top in the past 3 +/- years.It has been garage-kept and only ridden on days when I trusted the weatherman.I keep a high-end cover in the trunk and would use it if needed.Simply stated, I would pass along the same advice to the new owner.
Why is this car â€œMAGICALâ€?
My wife and kids call this car â€œthe smile makerâ€.So many people smile and give a thumbs up when I go on my monthly ride around to keep everything lubed and running smoothly.You truly do create a ray of sunshine in an otherwise dismal world.
I think this is an excellent business opportunity for someone in Savannah.Several years ago, my family and I visited Los Angeles and went on a tour around LA/Hollywood in a late 60â€™s model Cadillac convertible.This excursion costs around $ 400 and the owner told me he schedules about three tours per day.This had to be booked months in advance because this man stayed incredibly busy.On that day, I got the itch to own a car like this.I think a similar business could be very successful in a town like Savannah, Miami, New Orleans, San Diego, etc.....This would be the perfect vehicle for a start-up business, or a small business owner like myself could use it to advertise in local/regional parades also.
