1967 Lincoln Continental Hardtop SedanHello Everyone, up for sale is my Beautiful 1967 Lincoln Continental (Suicide Doors).
Year: 1967Make: LincolnModel: ContinentalBody: Hardtop sedanDoors: 4 Door (suicide doors)Engine: 462 MEL V8Transmission: C4 AutomaticDrive: RWDExterior Color: Recent Tuxedo Black Metallic (originally a cream colored vehicle)Interior Color: Cream Leather
Exterior: No Rust, clean up top, clean underneath, clean in the door jams, clean pinch welds, clean trunk and floor pans, great solid car with no rust. Recently painted a modern Ford "Tuxedo Black Metallic" base coat/clear coat paint, it was originally a cream colored "Desert Sand" lacquer paint when the car rolled off the assembly line per the original window sticker that comes with the car. The engine was rebuilt and when they pulled the motor they did put a couple of small scratches on the driver's fender and one minor dent in the passenger fender (minor enough for paintless dent repair aka PDR). The car is garage kept and is roughly the same length as my 2002 extended cab short bed 2500HD Silverado.
Interior: Cream colored leather seats, upper door panels, and headliner. Front seats are showing their age with wrinkles but are not all split or torn up, the back seats have much less use and are in much better shape. The upper door panels are in good shape, and the lower part of the door panels are black carpet and also in good shape. The drivers rear door panel arm rest plastics are brittle and cracking, the rest of the other door plastics are in decent shape. The headliner is in good shape and not torn or sagging anywhere. The rear parcel shelf is showing signs of sun damage. The dash pad has a crack but not all busted up. The carpet is black and showing signs of wear by the driver's pedals. Also the drivers inside door handle recently stopped working, but you can still hear the linkage moving, so I am guessing something just came loose in the door.
Electrical: The driver's front window works good, the rest of the windows will go up and down with some manual help using the master window switch, the rest of the door switches are not working and could use the switches rebuilt (contacts cleaned up, etc). The headlights and taillights work, but brake lights recently stopped working (brake light switch?). The power locks are vacuum operated and not working so there must be a vacuum line leak somewhere. Radio power antenna wire is split so it's not working. The vehicle has factory a/c but doesn't blow cold. The wipers/washers are not working either.
Glass: Windshield was replaced due to a crack in the original windshield, no leaks or issues with the replacement windshield. All the other glass appears to be original and in very good shape. All the headlights and taillights are in decent shape and not shattered, however the passenger rear fin reflector is broken.
Engine: It has the factory correct 462 cubic inch MEL V8. The engine rebuilt by John's Machine Shop in Olathe, KS and installed by DIY Auto Repair in Olathe, KS. I had hardened valve seats installed during the rebuild, so now it runs on unleaded gas. I also had the updated Metal timing gears installed in place of the original Plastic timing gears. The new Edelbrock carburetor has an Electric choke works very good, but could use some fine tuning and timing set with a Dwell meter. While the engine was out I had the radiator redone as well to prevent any issues. The car has developed an exhaust pipe leak after the engine install, so I'm guessing the installation shop may have left an exhaust donut or something loose since it didn't have any exhaust pipe leaks prior to the engine rebuild.
Transmission: The C4 Automatic was gone through by Nicholls Performance Transmissions in Grain Valley, MO. The trans shifts smooth like it should, but I did notice on a recent drive around the block that a transmission line or power steering line (something with red fluid) is leaking. The brakes and rear differential have been serviced House of Boost in Kansas City, MO.
Car does float down the highway like a lazyboy recliner, but since the brake lights stopped working and it's developed a red fluid leak I stopped driving it, so vehicle should be trailered to it's new home.
##### If you want a perfect turn-key $50,000 Barrett Jackson show car, then this $17,000 car is not for you. #####
I have over $21,000 invested in this car and already have taken care of the big ticket expensive items (No Rust, Recent Paint, Engine, Trans, Differential, Glass, etc). Someone could invest some sweat equity in this beautiful car and have a great show car.
The car comes with the original window sticker and owners manual, as well as service manuals for Electrical, Vacuum and Air Conditioning.
