PLEASE READ THE TOTAL DESCRIPTION
This auction is for a 1966 Lincoln Continental Suicide 4 Door Convertible. This is a project car but very worthy of being done. The prior owner had the car for many years. He took it off the road in the early 1990's to do a complete restoration. The motor and transmission were removed to be redone. Somewhere along the line the transmission went missing so everything was put on hold. We do have most of the 462 motor. The block was hot tanked, cleaned and new freeze plugs installed. We have the crank, pistons, cam shaft, both heads, some of the valves and springs, intake and carb, oil pan, starter, power steering unit, etc. I did not see the valve covers. No transmission but we do have the drive shaft. No radiator. The interior in the car is in real decent shape. Dash is amazing, seats are not beat up, just typical light leather cracking. Door panels are in great shape, visors are nice. Even the carpets are decent, just need a good shampooing to get the musty smell out. The convertible top is intact but has shrunk from age and will need to be replaced. The car came optioned with Power Steering, Power Front Disc Brakes, Tilt Steering Wheel, Power Seat, Power Windows and Power Convertible Top. All the glass is good with the exception of the front windshield which is cracked. The dual exhaust system looks to be in good solid shape also. The body on the car is fairly respectable. Real straight down both sides, doors open and close great, there is some minor rust on the bottom of both front fenders behind the rocker moldings, couple of small spots on the nose, a little behind the rear doors and both lower rear quarters at the very bottoms. Looks like a fairly easy fix. The underside of the car is very solid. Floors, Rockers, frame, braces and trunk pan are all good and solid. Rear opening deck lid and deck flap are solid. Over all, a good basic structure to work with. Make it original ,resto mod ,or make it your own.The motor and all parts are included if you want them. They would all fit in the trunk for shipping. There are a lot of sedans and other big Ford donor vehicles to be had reasonable if you want to go with a different drive line. We have the last Maine registration and proper dealer transfer forms for a smooth transaction. Car can be stored for a reasonable amount of time if you need to make shipping arrangements but car needs to be paid for within 3 days of auctions end. Selling at no reserve so please be serious in your bidding. If you need more info or pics feel free to email or call us at 1-207-324-5568 Days or 1-207-432-2862 Eves and Sundays.

Ford has announced that it is introducing "calibration updates designed to improve on-road fuel economy for owners of the 2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid, 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid and 2013 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid."
We can speculate that these changes are at least due in part to lawsuits over mileage claims of hybrid vehicles. The automaker is enhancing 2013 models starting in August by raising their electric cruising speed to 85 miles per hour from 62 mph, optimizing the use of active grille shutters and the climate control system, shortening the engine warm-up period by 50 percent and reducing electric fan speed to minimize the fan's energy consumption.
It bears mentioning that Ford is doing pretty well in the US electrified vehicle market this year. The company claims to have grown its share in the segment by 12 points to 16 percent while taking a high number of Toyota Prius trade-ins in the process. Conversely, Toyota has experienced a five-percent drop in new-Prius sales over the same period. Additionally, Ford states that it has increased its share of the US vehicle market by one percent this year, more than any full-line automaker.
It used to be that if you wanted a luxury SUV, you had to go big. Just look at the first high-riders released by some of the major luxury automakers - Audi Q7, Cadillac Escalade, Lexus LX - and you'll see what we mean. But since 2009 the small premium crossover segment has grown a whopping 200 percent, so it's no surprise that each has followed up with smaller luxury crossovers. And this is the latest.
At the other end of the utility spectrum from the Navigator, the new Lincoln MKC is based on the Ford Escape (much as the old pseudo-premium Mercury Mariner was), but completely rebodied and luxed up to put it in another league. Although we're still not sold on Lincoln's family fascia, the grille treatment on the MKC is certainly one of the better variations on the theme to date. The Dart-like rear lights dominate the wrap-around tailgate, and the overall shape looks taut and upscale. The same can be said of the dynamically-designed interior, taking the concept revealed in Detroit earlier this year to production fairly seamlessly.
Power will come from a choice of EcoBoost four-cylinder engines with turbocharging and direct injection: a 2.0-liter with 240 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque, or a slightly punchier new 2.3-liter with 275 hp and 300 lb-ft. Lincoln didn't disclose what transmission they'll be mated to, but did note that the MKC carries the brand's "signature" push-button gear shifter. It comes standard in front drive, but buyers who upgrade to all-wheel drive (or tick the right box) will also benefit from a new adaptive suspension Lincoln calls Continuously Controlled Damping. Other features include an approach-detection system that lights the car up and projects a Lincoln "welcome mat" on the pavement when you get close to the car, and a "bread-crumbing" feature that lets you track where your vehicle has been.
We were admittedly bullish about the Lincoln MKC Concept when we introduced it to you yesterday, as we were taken aback by how cohesive the C-platform crossover is in the metal. As it turns out, so were you, dear reader. With hundreds of comments booked on our original Deep Dive story, the overwhelming temperature of the Autoblog Commenteriat is one of surprise and delight - quite an accomplishment for a marque that many had written off for dead. The reception here under the bright lights of the Detroit Auto Show appears to be no less positive, but we thought you might want a second, closer look afforded by these live photos.
Lincoln remains mum on production MKC drivetrain specifics (we're thinking it will start with the 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder out of its similarly sized Ford Escape relative, or maybe the midlevel 1.6-liter), but we shouldn't have to wait too long. The showcar is expected to closely mirror the production model (due as early as later this year), so much so that Ford global marketing boss Jim Farley explicitly told the press conference masses, "When you see the MKC, do not think concept." That's good news, as the MKC is pivotal to Lincoln's effort to rebuild awareness and consideration on the back of its MKZ sedan, a model just now going on sale. In fact, with the small crossover segment exploding, the MKC could very well turn out to be more important to the brand than the MKZ.
