1976 Lincoln Continental Lipstick Edition Additional Info:

1976 Lincoln Mark IV Lipstick Edition(special edition)

2,199 original miles

Climate Controlled Garage find (not barn find)

Never touched – 100% original & survivor

Never even been touched up that I can see

Loaded with all the options – 5 Aluminum Wheels

Plastic is still on rear seat belts – rear seats may never have been used?

Car is neat & clean. Minor detailing in engine compartment could be done.

Frame has some surface rust that can be cleaned easily.

Paint shines but as some checking – again it is an unrestored survivor.

There are a few rock chips on passenger side (front of hood).

I have decided not to touch up & to keep the car 100% untouched & original.

The new owner can decide what they want to do.

2ndowner’s mechanic just went thru the car (Aug. 2020) & buffed it

Rebuilt Carb - Changed fluids – checked brakes, transmission & everything else

No fluid drips – Tires are like new

Window sticker - Broadcast Sheet – Brass Tag - & many other docs

Two owners since new – less than 50 miles per year

1stowner – Bought new in May 22, 1976 @ Schneider Lincoln Mercury in St. Paul, MN – Have original bill of sale, window sticker & many other docs.

Husband died less than a year after purchase & his wife put in climate-controlled storage for over 20 years. She never drove it.

2ndowner – a pal of mine – had it about 25 years & kept it stored.

He used to own a Chevy Dealership in MN.

Had his mechanic just went over the car – (August 2020) - rebuilt carb, changed fluids, checked everything, buffed, waxed & detailed

All storage was in a climate-controlled building since new & on a battery tender

This has to be one of the lowest mile & most original 76’s anywhere?

The car was just not driven very often.

It has been started at least a couple times a year while in storage & had short warm up drives (a couple miles) to insure everything was working OK.

The car really belongs in a museum.

Car is in heated & climate controlled showroom for the winter
