1969 Lincoln Continental

1969 Lincoln Continental Mark III 460Ci V8 365HP @ 4600 RPM. Owned by Frank Fitzsimmons the former president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. This car has major links to Jimmy Hoffa and his son. How cool is it when you are in this car to think that Jimmy Hoffa, is son have been in and driven this car! We have tons of service records and documentation that links the car to Frank Fitzsimmons & Jimmy Hoffa.

There is way too many receipts to put in this ad but the service records are amazing the transmission was rebuilt and came with a 3 year warranty (it shows that the previous owner did not get a cheap rebuild with a 1 year warranty)

This Car looks amazing inside & out and runs like a dream. All 4 tires are like brand new. It has dual power seats, ower windows, ower locks, ideaway headlights, inyl top looks like new. lots of extra parts are in the trunk including 2 extra hub caps & radios. I can’t believe a 46 year old car can look this good inside and out. And how amazing it runs. It gets thumbs up everywhere I take it and tons of attention and head turns.
