1966 Lincoln Continental Additional Info:

Hi I'm proud to offer for sale a rare 1966 Lincoln 4 Door Convertible VIN # 6Y86G413847, one of a limited production run of 3180 produced in 1966. I acquired this car in April of 2010. This car has been in restoration for almost 6 years, the car was recently completed and just picked up from Bakers Auto of CT who went over the whole car and made all the necessary repairs to make sure this is a reliable and truly original 66 Lincoln. It took me months to find the correct car and this vehicle was a clean rust free, complete car with original paint and no prior body work. We have restored this car to its original condition; only a few small things have been upgraded like the brake master cylinder, AC converted to R134A, Dynamat added to the floor panel, and exterior color changed to black; otherwise this car is completely original. No expense was spared to use NOS or rebuilt parts to keep the cars originality and to make sure it drives and works like new, just like it was in 1966. All original parts were saved and will be passed on to the new owner. This was not a frame off restoration but came very close to it. Please review all the pictures and you will observe that the engine and transmission were removed and parts around them were sand blasted and coated in either paint or POR-15 to protect the chassis and frame cross members from rust. The only sheet metal part that had to be cut off and replaced was the battery tray; for some odd reason Ford used cheap metal to make the trays therefore they always have to be replaced. At this time the vehicle has been driven over 1200 miles since it was put together, made it to Bakers 200 plus miles no problem in 90 degree heat. Each mile driven was used to make adjustments and fine tune it, Bakers Auto put on about 150 miles while testing driving the car. We are confident to say that this car can be driven cross-country without any hesitation; we did 250 miles just to bring the car back from Bakers Auto no issues at all. Below we will do our best to make a list of parts and work done to the vehicle. The car is painted in Global PPG Color BMW black sapphire metallic 475. The clear is a PPG DELTRON 4000 the car has four coats all around. The interior is done in white leather with black piping; the carpet is made by Jim Wallace of Leather Restorations in Florida the only company making an exact carpet specifically made for this car and has a the original rubber padding with the Lincoln logo like the car had when new. The top is also made by Jim Wallace and is an exact replica of the factory top with padding to hide the wires. The top received all brand new weather-stripping; it took over 6 months to receive the handmade parts and the top weather stripping kit alone costs over $4K. The entire top and window electronics work like new: all of the window switches have been replaced and all new window motors installed. The rear windows roll down half way when you open the doors and roll up when the doors are closed. All of the hydraulic top motors were replaced, with brand new parts. All of the rubber moldings and padding all around the car are brand new. Over $8k has been spent just on the weather stripping. The engine was rebuilt by Complete Engine Rebuilding in NY in 2013. The transmission was rebuilt in July of 2015 by Dolphin Transmissions of NY. We supplied a complete Fatsco rebuilt kit so everything including the valve body was replaced. The cooling system is all brand new including the radiator, expansion tanks and all the hoses. The fuel system was completely rebuild with new filter and most of the lines replaced. The carburetor was rebuild using all original parts by J.C. Carburetor of NY, the fuel pump was rebuild by Bakers Auto in CT and the Fuel Tank by Liberty Auto In NY. The AC system has been updated to R134A: every part from the condenser, AC compressor, hoses, expansion valves are brand new; the only rebuilt part is the evaporator. Just this June Bakers tested the AC system. The rear leaf springs and the suspension were rebuilt as well using all new bushings, shocks and bolts; all parts were provided by Bakers Auto and the work was done by Long Life Auto Spring in NY. The front end is completely new: most parts were brand new NOS; the calipers and the control arms we rebuilt since no replacements are available. The brake system has all brand new lines, the brake booster was updated. Bakers adjusted and replaced some parts just this June. The power steering system has been rebuilt with all new hoses and filters the system was checked over and tested by Bakers in June. The exhaust system is Stainless Steel and is completely new with new headers. The wheels were all sandblasted and powder coated in black to match the car. The tires were put on this June, Coker Tires brand American Classic 235/75/15 white walls brand new with less than 600 miles on them; we added the warranty from Coker that will pass on to the new owner . The spare wheel was also repaired and sandblasted in the grey original factory color; a brand new tire for the spare wheel installed. The trunk has a brand new upholstery kit also manufactured by Jim Wallace. All of the chrome and steel parts were sent out to S & H Chrome Refinishing in Tennessee: we have over $16K in re-chromed parts. We are confident we have not mentioned even half the improvement and restoration work that was done on this vehicle. If you have any questions about a particular part or how certain repair was completed, we have documented the process and can answer any questions and address all concerns. The receipts for labor and parts add up to much more than what we are asking for the car but at this time we must let this one go...The link below is to over 100 invoices we have many more. All invoices will pass to the new owner. CLICK HERE TO SEE INVOICES
