1974 Lincoln Mark Series
Smooth running, riding and driving rust-free 1974 Lincoln Continental Mark IV coupe with 84,500 miles. Please read entire listing and carefully view all photos before making an offer or inquiring, thanks.
Rare â€œMedium Dark Gold Metallicâ€ color exterior (paint code was 6M â€“ I canâ€™t even find photos online of a Mark IV with this color - it looks more like a metallic dark green to me) with gold velour cloth seats (an upgrade option in 1974) and tan â€œCalvary Twill Vinylâ€ top. Manufacture date of October 1973 (per door jamb sticker) makes this one of the first 1974 model year Mark IVs produced.
Factory Ford 460 CID V8.
I purchased this car at an estate sale in August 2019. It had been stored in a climate-controlled garage for many years.
I had $1800 in mechanic work done to awaken this sleeping beauty (receipts included). Repairs included: new fuel tank and sending unit, new front pads and rotors, new rear brake cylinders and springs, new master cylinder, new Edelbrock 14054 Performer 600 CFM carburetor and electric choke, lube, oil, filter. The original carburetor is included if you want to rebuild it and/or sell it.
Car runs, drives and stops like a luxury car of that era should.
The car could use: tires (although the tires have decent tread and the car rides smoothly, I would not dive the car for long trips on the current tires as they are old; new tires would also take care of the mis-matched whitewall width on the one passenger side front tire), coolant change, new spark plugs, and air conditioning (likely needs a new compressor).
Body and interior are in very good condition â€“ see photos. There is normal wear and blemishes on a car of this age. Minor issues include: interior door handle leather pulls have cracks in them (see photo), driver door arm rest has wear and a very small crack in it (see photo), and some pitting on parts of chrome and some areas of discoloration. I can find no significant rust anywhere on this car, and certainly no rot, with only of a few minor surface spots, some of which were touched-up with paint. A few small stone chips in headlight covers. See photo of one area of rear bumper (vertical part). Small dents/scrapes on hubcaps.
The car isnâ€™t perfect - keep in mind itâ€™s 46-years old - but it is a good, straight, solid vehicle. Please review all the photos carefully. I want you to know 100% what you are buying with no surprises. Iâ€™m not a mechanic nor a body/detail guy, so youâ€™re getting a description from a layman in layman terms, but I have tried to be as accurate as possible. The car looks to be all original, but I canâ€™t say for sure.
Please ask any questions. Iâ€™m not a professional photographer (I took all photos with my iPhone) but I am willing to take more photos or do a video call to better show you the car.
I did not wax this car; I only gave it a waterless spray wash. Nor did I clean the engine compartment.
Clear title is in my name, ready to be transferred to the new owner. If you live in Pennsylvania, I would be happy to also transfer the current antique tags to you. My mechanic gave the car a Pennsylvania inspection good until May 2021, although he didnâ€™t need to as itâ€™s titled as an antique vehicle.
If you are local to me (Iâ€™m located about 40 minutes south of Lancaster, PA), you are more than welcome to see the car in person (BEFORE you bid/offer/buy, please). I do reserve the right to end the auction early if I sell the car locally.
I would be happy to assist in shipping this car anywhere in the world at the buyerâ€™s expense (I sold one classic car here on eBay to a nice gentleman in Austria). I know how much these cars are loved outside the U.S., but in all cases funds must clear my bank before I will let the car leave my possession.
The car is sold as-is with no warranty or guarantee or return.
$500 Paypal deposit due upon winning bid, balance due (cash, wire, or certified funds) within 3 days. The car will not leave my possession until funds clear my bank.
If you plan to buy or make an offer on the car, please have your money available and in order beforehand. No trades please. Any inspections must be done before sale, not afterwards.
All shipping costs and arrangements are the sole responsibility of the buyer.
