1958 Lincoln Continental 2 Door Hardtop on 2040-cars
Ansonia, Connecticut, United States
There was less than 2400 of these built,Lincoln lost money when they made theses cars. The car has 69000 miles. It was originally owned by a Dr in NY when he passed his then girlfriend would not drive it due to the size. It went to another family before it came into my hands. The car was disassembled and not running. The parts were all there and put back on with car. What you have now is a running car. A classic with fresh paint and a one of a kind gold metal flake roof, The pictures do not do the roof justice. A new holley 600cfm carb was put on, master cylinder was rebuilt. The front lower seat was recently replaced. The headliner needs to be replaced as well as the guage dash needs to be recovered. This car is a head turner and everyone loves it. I have some 30 pictures from when it came to me. It needs work to be a 10 but it is definately a 6 or better. It has the working town and country am radio, the windows work, the rear left can be balky. Ask any questions. Vehicle is buyer pickup only. If shipping is required will help load. The floors are solid there is no rot. The trunk is again solid no rot. This car is available for inspection in West Haven, CT. You do not see these cars often, now picture yourself in it. This is when cars were solid. It is the largest unibody car ever built, holds the record for most shoulder room. The front upper bumper was rechromed and is flawless. Again it is a beauty.
This car has a breezeway window an option that everyone has remarked on, Shifts great, ride is smooth and it is like riding on a cloud. I have resisted the urge to lower the car as it would ne easy without cutting or unbolting anything. The car is listed locallyand I reserve the right to end the auction immediately. Partial trade may be worked out.
I have had several requests for more pictures. Please send me your email address and I will send them to you promptly.

LA Auto Show recap
Ford hybrid customers apparently have very short memories. With two EPA fuel economy reratings in the last year, sales of the C-Max, Fusion Hybrid and Lincoln MKZ haven't been too terribly dented, Ward's Auto reports.
Thu, 27 Feb 2014 13:00:00 EST
All three vehicles saw sales dips following the August 2013 rerating, although sales of the MKZ Hybrid had begun to rebound as early as November of that year. C-Max sales, meanwhile, took slightly longer, with sales on a steadily improving course as early as February of this year.
The second rerating, in June of this year, has had an even smaller effect on the Blue Oval's hybrids. The C-Max has actually been subject to a sales increase, while both the MKZ and Fusion saw minor sales drops (less than 400 units between the two in the month following the rerating).
Consumer Reports has announced its annual list of worst vehicles, a cringe-inducing contrast to its list of top vehicles. Ignominiously leading the way in 2014 is Chrysler, which has a staggering seven models listed.
Jeep nearly sweeps the small SUV segment by itself, with its Compass, Patriot and 2.4-liter version of the new Cherokee, while the only midsize sedans listed by CR were the Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger. The new Dodge Dart and the Dodge Journey round out CR's condemnation of Chrysler.
Ford is taking heat as well, with the Taurus, Edge and their counterparts from Lincoln all listed as the worst vehicles in their respective segments. Toyota doesn't fare much better, with its Lexus IS, Scion iQ and tC also making the list.
