1976 Lincoln Continental

YES, THAT IS CORRECT, 37000 ORIGINAL MILES. Giant 460 V-8!I got this car from an older gentleman who's parents bought it new in New Mexico in 1975. The father died shortly there after and it was too much car for the mother so put in storage. Son found it when mother died and brought it to CAL and stored/rarely drove it. I have put a few reliability items on it just for long term trust: fuel pump, carb rebuild, andheater core. Had a few small things done like some exhaust repair, Electric CARTIER CLOCK REBUILT AND WORKING FLAWLESSLY,and replaced A/c compressor. Air blew nice and cold last summer, should blow fine now. I have had car for about three years and used it as a daily driver here and there to keep everything monitored and working. Have put about 2-3000 on it total. Beautiful crush velour interior. All locks, windows, radio/8 track, antennae, tilt, cruise control, lights work. Power seats work, EXCEPT, there is 1 broken button on door panel, MIGHT be fixed in next couple weeks. Brakes are good, tires have deep tread, BUT sat for years so have some light flat spots and should be replaced as there is a shimmy that starts around 65 mph thru 75. I would not sell except just went thru divorce, had to pay her a fortune and buy a new house that needs a rehab. Car also has a rare FACTORY extra gas tank for those long smooth trips that you will want to take in this behemoth. It is a monster. Paint might use some attention, but for the most part very good for 40 years old. A few small parking lot dings, I mean carIS 40 YEARS old and was not a trailer or garagequeen, though it wouldn't take much to make it one as everything appears original as it left factory.Landau/leather soft top is still soft to the touch but showing its age a little. Car was stored in a carport Ask any questions you have and I will answer. I am losing a lot on this car, your gain. It needs to go.
