I am offering up my 1962 Lincoln Continental 4 door convertible with 65,000 actual miles.

The car was purchased in the spring of 1991 from the estate of Henry Shakespeare (owner of Shakespeare Rod and Reel Co. in Kalamazoo Mi.) I was told Mr. Shakespeare purchased the convertible in the fall of 1961 for his wife, and it remained hers until it was sold at auction in 1991.

Shortly after I bought the car I replaced the complete 4 muffler exhaust system, front and rear brakes, front and rear shocks and all four whitewall tires (Firestone sup-r belt deluxe champion J78-14) and are 95% of new. My wife and I drove the car every summer from 1991-1995 and always stored it in a heated garage during the winter.

In 1996 I began a restoration project to the right side of the vehicle. There were a couple of thin spots behind the right front wheel and behind the right rear wheel, I cut these spots out, and just never found the time to finish the project. The right front and rear doors are rustfree with a few small dings that have been repaired and primed and are ready to be reinstalled. (see pics) The undercarriage appears to be solid.

The car needs a good overall cleaning from sitting so long, but the black and white leather interior and the chrome should clean up nicely.

We always enjoyed driving the Lincoln, it rode like a couch, and turned alot of heads everywhere we went. We entered it into a few local car shows, and took home a trophy for people's choice and earliest entry, just to name a couple. We enjoyed driving and showing the car so much that I decided to make it perfect, so the restoration project began. Shortly afterward I was in an accident, broke 4 ribs and my collarbone, so I couldn't finish. In retrospect, I wish I had just left well enough alone, the car was nice like it was and was already winning trophies.

So now you know as much about the Lincoln as I do. Hope you enjoy looking at it.

Happy Bidding!!

we reserve the right to end auction early for local sale

Lincoln video teases new things to come... but what?

Sun, 02 Dec 2012 19:02:00 EST

Lincoln has released a new video teasing... something. In what looks to be an advertisement for more advertising, the company has worked up a clip featuring everything from a drum solo and a flying hawk to Abraham Lincoln himself. The video shows a few shots of what looks to be an MKZ and promises more news is coming on Monday.
What does the company have up its sleeves? Rumors are bouncing around the web like so many ill-informed ping-pong balls, and cover everything from an alternative powertrain for the MKZ to a new two-door model - noise that is underscored by the presence of a Ford Mustang chassis lurking in the background of the video around the 27-second mark (see screen capture above).
Could Lincoln be considering a rear-wheel drive luxury coupe built on the pony's bones? A move like that seems awfully unlikely, but it certainly wouldn't hurt our feelings. Either way, we'll find out more tomorrow. In the interim, check out the teaser video below for yourself.

Ford issues four recalls covering 163k vehicles

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 16:27:00 EST

Recalls! 2014 will be forever remembered as the year that automakers went recall crazy, with millions and millions of vehicles adding up to crush previous recall records well before the end of the year. Adding to that tally is Ford, which announced a call-back for 163,000 vehicles.
Leading that charge are the 2.0-liter, EcoBoost four-cylinder engines of the Ford Focus ST and Ford Escape. 160,000 of the 2013 and 2014 models have bad wiring harnesses that can disrupt the signals traveling to the powertrain control module. That, in turn, could lead to a check engine light, reduced power and stalling. Notably, Ford hasn't recalled any other vehicles that feature the 2.0 EcoBoost, such as the Fusion, Taurus or Explorer.
While the Focus ST and Escape constitute the vast majority of recalled vehicles, they aren't the only problem children in the Ford family. 1,300 Transit passenger vans from model year 2015 were recalled due to brake fluid leaks, while another 600 Transit cargo variants were recalled after Ford discovered the windowless sliding doors could come open in the event of a side-impact crash. Dealers will replace the sealing washers on the passenger variants and add a reinforcement plate on the cargo models, The Detroit News reports.

Lincoln's first shipment of cars arrives in China

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 18:01:00 EST

It has been two years since Lincoln first announced its plans to expand into China, and the first models destined for sale in the giant automotive market just came off the boat in Shanghai on September 10. It's going to be a few weeks before Chinese buyers actually have the chance to get behind the wheel, though.
The first two models being offered to China are the MKZ and MKC, as seen arriving in these photos, and they are going to be sold at dealers that look more like hotels than traditional showrooms. The first four are opening in Beijing, Shanghai and Hangzhou in October, with a grand unveiling of the new brand to Chinese consumers later that month. By the end of the year, Lincoln wants to have eight dealers operating in seven cities. By 2016, the automaker wants to have a lineup of five models available in the People's Republic.
"This is the culmination of months of teamwork and collaboration both in North America and here in China," said Robert Parker, President of Lincoln China, in the company's release.
