1942 LINCOLN CONTINENTAL COUPE  SERIES 26H

****** ONLY 200 PRODUCED ***** 

I hate to let this vehicle go, odds of finding another in this condition at a reasonable price is pretty slim. Must move her on to someone who has the time to give this rare full classic the chance to see daylight again. 

The restoration was started long ago (late 70's) and the interior and undercarriage (gas tank, frame, rear end, etc.)  are all in like new condition. The exterior paint may be original as it is cracking and peeling in spots and will need a repaint to bring it back to its full glory or leave it original.
The V12 is installed, but it is locked-up from sitting since I was told the late 70's. A few engine bay wires have not been hooked up (lights) but are all labeled. I've tried to take pictures of everything to tell the complete story, but if you need more info please email or call. 
The interior is all re-done n red leather, but the inner door cranks, handles & ashtrays are gone. I was told that they were sent out to be rechromed and have been lost. There are also some wires under the dash no hooked up, but they are also labeled. 
Also included are a few boxes with  some handles and wiper arms for car and other misc. nuts n bolts.

There are no rust holes anywhere on car , as it has been continuously in dry storage. Hopefully I have taken enough pictures, if not please feel free to contact me at 1-603-765-3663 or 1-603-332-4937 (9-5pm work), if I don't answer I will get back to you ASAP. There is no warranty or title(bill of sale only) with the car. You buy it, you own it...I doubt anyone will be dissapointed with the vehicle.
I do require a $500 deposit via paypal within 48hrs and the complete payment before the vehicle is released. You can pay either cash or a bank transfer (no other options). I may consider trades, but no projects. If your trade is worth more, I may consider paying on an agreed difference in price.  Good Luck and I have set the reserve at a very reasonable low number, I know I will lose on the deal, but just want someone to finish this project as I do not have the time or health to make it happen. Thanks & Good Luck.

Sorry forgot, I also can store for alittle while and definatley have the capacity to help load the vehicle

NHTSA closes rollaway investigation into 1.56M Ford SUVs

Mon, 11 Mar 2013 14:17:00 EST

It's taken four years of study, but the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has finally closed the books on its investigation into rollaway accusations surrounding 1.56-million Ford SUV models.
The probe, which centered on the 2002-2005 Ford Explorer, 2002-2005 Mercury Mountaineer and 2003-2005 Lincoln Aviator, ends without the federal agency calling for a recall. According to The Detroit News, the investigation was closed due to a "low number of complaints" - NHTSA documented 180 such complaints that resulted in 14 crashes and six minor injuries, but the number of incidents have been slowing. The suspected defect rate for the trucks' automatic transmissions was found to be 4.4 per 100,000 units, and the brake-shift interlock mechanism failure rate was judged to be even lower at 3.4 per 100k.

Conan O'Brien takes McConaughey's Lincoln ad to its logical conclusion

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 14:58:00 EST

We all had to see this coming. Conan O'Brien has released a parody of Matthew McConaughey's new ads for the 2015 Lincoln MKC and remixed them with lines from one of his most critically acclaimed recent roles.
The now much darker commercial probably isn't how Lincoln would prefer the MKC to be marketed, but really in a few of the actual ads, McConaughey already seems moments away from breaking into a full Rustin Cohle from True Detective impression. The cadence and tone of his voice are just so close to that character, especially in the one where he's talking to the bull standing in the middle of the road. It very nearly verges on parody anyway; Conan is just turning all of this up to 11.
It's a little surprising that the writers didn't dig a little deeper into the McConaughey oeuvre for the parody. Maybe McConaughey could have taken the MKC for a party at the Moon Tower from Dazed and Confused. In any case, it's worth a quick watch, so check it out.

2015 Lincoln MKC

Mon, 09 Jun 2014 12:13:00 EST

Back in 2012, Lincoln claimed its comeback bid was finally underway with the new-for-2013 MKZ. But don't you believe them - the renaissance won't actually begin in earnest until the shapely compact crossover seen here reaches showrooms in big numbers. That's because while the four-door MKZ was indeed a proper step toward rebirth, the 2015 MKC is the first wholly conceived vehicle under Lincoln as a standalone brand, a move first announced back in 2012.
That's an important distinction, because Lincoln's newfound emancipation from Ford's design and development processes has given the struggling marque both the corporate wherewithal and the will to develop a more fully formed product. The four-wheeled result seen here is a surprisingly cohesive luxury CUV, one with significantly more aesthetic and dynamic separation from its Ford Escape sibling than the MKZ and its Fusion counterpart. Said another way, after flogging Lincoln's latest for hundreds of miles over canyon roads outside of Santa Barbara, we've come to understand that this is far from a re-grilled Dearborn special with luxury tinsel - it's a bona fide standalone product that readily displays the sort of clear differentiation seen in platform cousins like the Audi Q5 and the Volkswagen Tiguan. It's the real deal.
