Description:

1961 Lincoln Continental

PRESENTED FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS A 1961 LINCOLN CONTINENTAL SEDAN IN HONEY BEIGE WITH HONEY BEIGE INTERIOR. THIS EXAMPLE IS AN EARLY PRODUCTION CAR--VIN NUMBER 951 OFF THE ASSEMBLY LINE FOR 1961. AS AN EARLY PRODUCTION CAR, UILT AS ONE OF THE FIRST 1000 CARS, Y CAR EXHIBITS SOME DESIGN VARIANCES WHICH WERE MODIFIED IN LATER PRODUCTION CARS. NOTABLE DIFFERENCES INCLUDE SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT WHEEL COVERS AND THE STEERING WHEEL HORN RING IS RECESSED AROUND THE BACK OF THE STEERING WHEEL SPOKES RATHER THAN FLOATING ON TOP OF THE STEERING WHEEL SPOKES AS WAS COMMON WITH LATER PRODUCTION RUN EXAMPLES.
THIS 30,000 ACTUAL MILEAGE CAR WAS TREATED TO A NO-EXPENSE SPARED RESTORATION INCLUDING NEW PAINT, HROME, OLISHED STAINLESS IN ADDITION TO UNTOLD NOS EMBLEMS, ADGES, ENSES, TC. ALL FRONT GRILLE SECTIONS, NCLUDING LOWER BUMPER INSERTS ARE NOS. THE REAR GRILLE SECTIONS AND FUEL FILLER DOOR WERE RECHROMED AND METICULOUSLY DETAILED BY ME FOR CONCOURS EXHIBITION. AS YOU MIGHT EXPECT FROM A LOW MILEAGE CAR, HE INTERIOR WAS TOTALLY ORIGINAL AND LEFT UNTOUCHED. THE CARPET IS AN EXTREMELY LIGHT SHADE OF TAN, LMOST CREAM COLOR, ND DOES SHOW EVIDENCE OF WEAR. FOR PERFECTION, HE CARPETING SHOULD BE REPLACED. THE TRUNK AREA IS A TIME WARP WITH ORIGINAL SPARE, OVER AND TRUNK MAT.
THE CAR IS MECHANICALLY EXCELLENT, OWEVER HAS BEEN IN LONG-TERM CLIMATE CONTROLLED STORAGE AND DOES NEED THE REAR RESONATORS REPLACED (NEW RESONATORS INCLUDED WITH AUCTION) AND BRAKES CHECKED PRIOR TO LONG DISTANCE TRAVEL.
HIGH BIDDER TO REMIT DOWN PAYMENT OF $1000 VIA BANK WIRE TRANSFER WITHIN 2 DAYS OF AUCTION COMPLETION. BALANCE DUE VIA BANK WIRE TRANSFER WITHIN 6 DAYS OF AUCTION COMPLETION. NO PAYPAL. HIGH BIDDER RESPONSIBLE FOR COORDINATING AND PAYING FOR ALL TRANSPORTATION COSTS. CAR IS LOCATED IN SOUTHEASTERN MICHIGAN. REASON FOR SELLING - MY CAREER HAS TAKEN OFF AND THERE IS LITTLE TIME TO ENJOY ALL THE TOYS.
PLEASE INQUIRE WITH ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE. BEST OF LUCK AND HAPPY BIDDING !!
