1966 Lincoln Continental 21k Original Miles on 2040-cars
Newport, Minnesota, United States
This car only has 21,599 miles on it.
This is better than a barn find, my grandfather's 1966 Lincoln Continental that he only used it on special occasions. He had bought it for my grandmother, but she was scared to drive it because of its size. I can only remember riding in it two times as a child, once for my fathers wedding and once out to dinner.
He had always said that the mileage is actual, when he bought the car in 1983 the title documented the actual mileage then as 17,650. Now the mileage is 21,599. I have only driven it around my neighborhood because I do not have insurance on it or current tabs.
Almost all of the car is original, however sometime in the 80's he had the vinyl on the roof replaced and still looks good. The car was also repainted in the 80's to a brighter red color, there is some overspray in the door jambs.
After I got the car there was a leak in the fuel tank when it was filled over half full. I removed the tank and had it sandblasted and sealed by Gas Tank Renu MN there is a lifetime transferable warranty against any leaks that is transferable. The fuel pump, belts, and a power steering hose were also replaced. I think the carburator needs some attention because to start it after it sits overnight you need to pour a little gas down the carb to get it started.
The car starts, runs and drives. the motor sounds good for an almost 50 year old engine. The transmission pan gasket should be changed, it drips after sitting a week or so. The power windows work when you hold the lock switch in the lock position??? Even the little vent windows work. The A/C does not work and I doubt it has been looked at since the 80's. The tires have lots of tread on them. All of the interior is original except the drivers door arm rest. all of the interior parts appear to be there. The cover for the spare tire and the original jack are missing.
If you have any questions or want specific pictures message me your email address, Ebay will not let me post my email address on here.
$500 NON REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT DUE 24 HOURS AFTER AUCTION END
Delivery up to 500 miles for $2.50 per loaded mile.
I just noticed that the power locks do not operate.

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.
Fresh off the launch of the stylish new MKZ sedan, the newly named Lincoln Motor Company is reportedly preparing for a lineup expansion. According to TheDetroitBureau.com, the first new product joining the Lincoln brand is a small crossover based on the Ford Escape said to be called the MKC. We saw this machine testing a few months ago, and while we were hoping the name might be reserved for a future two-door model or even the diminutive Concept C hatchback, it looks like the "C" will stand for compact crossover instead.

The report also says that this crossover will be making its debut next month at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, so we'll have to wait until then to see what the new model looks like. Unlike the MKX, which is based off the Ford Edge, we would expect there to be a lot more differentiation between the MKC and the Escape like Ford managed to do with the newest Fusion and MKZ.
In addition to the new MKC, the article states new MKS and Navigator designs are expected to debut by 2014.
Remember when we used to talk about how close Lincoln was to being axed and how it seemed any day now the Grim Reaper would use it as a car service back to the grave? Last time we did it was, oh, not even a month ago. What a difference 27 days makes: Ford and Lincoln are trumpeting a $129M investment in the Louisville Assembly Plant that builds the MKC.
In July the MKC was the third-best-selling Lincoln of the brand's six offerings, beat by the MKZ and - by a much smaller margin - the MKX. It has sold 2,895 units in the two months it's been on sale, which is more than half the year-to-date sales of the MKS, MKT and Navigator. It's already important, is what we're trying to say, and this is before the Chinese market gets a crack at it later this year.
The money headed to Kentucky will be joined by 300 new workers, another marker in Ford's march to create 12,000 hourly jobs in the US by next year. You can read more about it in the press release below.
