1974 Lincoln Continental Additional Info:

I recently purchased this Lincoln from the ORIGINAL OWNER in Oregon. The vehicle was purchased by the couple back in 1974 as their own anniversary gift to themselves. Car has always been well kept, have small binder full of registrations and service records etc.
The car has approximately 130k miles. Original everything ! car is very solid, no rust, no bondo, original paint. Engine is a super solid 460, no smoke, no over heating. She drives as nice as she looks. Upon taking receipt of the vehicle, I have done the following:
Flushed all fluids (gar, brakes, engine transmission, radiator and rear end), replaced front brakes including rotors, replaced all four shocks, replaced steering box and Pitman arm and 4 new whitewall tires. Transmission shiftS nice and smooth. The only thing worth mentioning is that the AC does not work. The local AC shop indicted the pump needs to be replaced and the tank needs to be evacuated.
All four windows work, same goes for the locks, power seats (1 function does not work) power antennae, radio, tilt wheel, hide away lights etc. The couple were non smokers so that means all 5 ashtrays and lighters are nice and clean. The interior of the vehicle is in fantastic if not pristine state with deep blue leather and navy blue beautiful shag rug (yes, I said shag rug). All of the dash lights were replaced with green LED lights to brighten the dash and I added a front set of Lloyds custom mats. The dash is perfect with no cracks, fading or curling and the trunk is just as amazingly super clean. The doors close nice and tight as they should and even the weather stripping is still soft and supple. There are a couple of spots on the vinyl top that were patched but overall look good. Look at the pictures as they tell more than what I can describe.
The car is ready to be driven across the country as far as I can tell. She gets may looks and a lot of thumbs up everywhere we take her. Original Paint, original top and original just about EVERYTHING. This is truly a time capsule car that will bring a smile to anyone who loves these land-yachts. She starts right up, has plenty of power and floats down the road.
I am selling it as I just purchased another car and need the parking space. I am also not crazy and will not let it go for a fraction of what it's worth. Look in NADA and Hagerty, Fair Condition is $6,200 - Good Condition is $10,100 and Excellent Condition is $14,800 - Concours is over $25,000 so at my reserve, this is a heck of a deal!
So, email me your questions.
I do not want to trade, will not take payments and will definitely negotiate with a serious buyer so please don't waste anyone's time. I have tons of pictures just let me know what questions you have of if you want any more pictures posted.
Car is for sale AS IS, no warranty and no guarantee of any type. Bidders only from the 48 contiguous US states (No HI, PR, DR or Int'l)
