1979 Lincoln Continental Cartier

This is a 1979 Lincoln Continental Mark V ...Built in 3/79 purchased by the original owner in 12/79 he owned it until a few weeks ago in which he traded it into a ford dealer on a new ca, ,,, Who owns a car for 37 years ???? His name was Calvin Monroe and from what i hear and see he absolutely loved this car ... Car runs and drives very well drive anywhere Last year of this classic body style they changed it to a boxier car in 1980 and it really doesn't have the same old school vibe ..... If you watch Kount Kustoms you know they redid one of these cars and it really came out awesome but this car is all stock and original except the addition of dual exhaust some time ago .. the a/c blows cold the power seats work even the headlight doors work its very clean it shows very well ....besides normal blemished it has one rust bubble really low down rear quarter panel it will not really photo but its there if you really look its a bubble in the paint and i am sure there is some sort of rust behind it very hard to notice The door bottoms, rockers, fenders, floor and trunk are solid and the car is not full of filler its basically what i call a virgin except i am sure its had at least one repaint and one new vinyl top i pictured the top looks like it shrunk and the fit around the edges is good but not perfect but shows well it doesn't need to be redone and i am sure some well placed adhesive would do wonders someone used some sort of silicone it would clean off and look a lot better if done right ... other things i can tell you are it has been treated with a factory rust preventative you can see the plugs on the rockers where they drilled to apply the rust-proofer. this has the 400 ci motor and the auto transmission i believe both to be original but i have not done any research .the miles to empty meter is digital and still works as well as the original Cartier clock ... the leather has the surface cracks you would expect mostly in the dye or color they apply to it there are no open tear, , the carpets are good but could use a little cleaning . trunk floor is as pictured super clean and all the rugs are in there as well as the original spare ..... This is a pretty awesome car and a drive, ,,,, only things i think the car needs are the drivers window stick, ,, it can be forced but i do not know if it would come back up so i do not use i, ,,, the motors strong but it idles a little rough would be a good idea to do at least spark plugs and there are small holes in exhaust its not loud it has minor leaks .... This car can be driven home with no issues that i know of and the nearest 3 airports are tweed new haven,Which is a small airport and JFK IN NEW YORK and Hartford Bradley International ..I will pick you up from a train station in downtown new haven called Union Station . You want the car shipped i will Help in any way to load it or be here for the carrier i am not making arrangements that is on you ... ct dmv will provide a transport plate for $14 dollars with proof of insurance and an out of state license ...... my zip code is 06512 new haven ct close to I91 and I95...... The car will be sold with the mass title pictured and a bill of sale .... when you register the car you will be the second registered owner or keep the title 1 owner and collect the car store it away ..... In the state of ct you do not need a title on a car older than 20 years so a bill of sale is all you need ..But yes i have the title in hand .. any questions email me .... i really love this car i hope it goes to an owner that loves it as much as i do ... I hope my ad answered most of the normal stuff ....Happy bidding offering it @ .99 no reserve and i will let you guys figure out what its worth ..... please ask any important questions regarding condition before you place a bid....i wrote a long ad but it has only covered all the common stuff please expect this car to have all the minor flaws an unrestored 37 year old car would have ... the current mileage is 94,699 it will increase a few miles as i am still currently driving it around town ....

The interior is white i believe but i listed it as tan for its an off white just wanna make it clear ....... it has the original turbine style rims in great shape some raised white letter tires and i just wanna say it has an old school radar detector and the original 8 track ....
