1966 Lincoln Continental Coupe Additional Info:

*** Some of my pictures are not that good, working on better ones****
Selling my '66 Lincoln Continental Coupe. In 2005 she received a full frame-on restoration at Lincoln Land in Clearwater Florida.. The only thing that remains untouched is the beautiful Interior that looks amazing for its age. No cracks in leather or dash, heck even has a new old stock clock!!. I have extensive records for the car going back to the late '80s/early'90s. through today. Currently she is sitting on cheap 140 spoke 20" wheels that look great. Also have the original Steel wheels and hubcaps. Below is a list of receipts that I have related to the restoration and is not representative of all receipts and documents. Always Garaged!!!!

The Bad: I will send you detailed pictures, message me with your Email address.

Passenger side quarter panel has a quarter sized (25 cent) chip from door coming out of adjustment and kissing the panel. I temporarily attached the chip, which fit like a puzzle piece and most people don't notice. Should be fixed though.

Electric Windows all work but are temperamental at times.

Front driver side seat shows wear but no cracks or holes anywhere.

1 tiny ding in passenger side body line trim. See Picture.

Driver door wood trim panel shows wear.

Trunk carpet is original and shows wear.

Steering Wheel trim ring is loose.

Steering Wheel hub bearing needs replaced, doesn't affect driving on a little play.

Overall an amazing example of a 1966 Lincoln Continental. She has about 1000 miles on her since the rebuild and drives like new, AC blows cold and transmission shifts like a dream. Open to possible trades for another vehicle of equal value. Car is located in Tampa, Florida.
