1967 Lincoln Continental 4 Door Sedan with "Suicide" Doors - Only 42,000 MIles!

This is a 100 percent stock and complete, unmolested rare find.


MECHANICAL:

- Runs/drives/shifts/stops/starts fine

- Recent complete tune-up (plugs/points/wires etc) and fluid change

- Recent new brake parts/repairs (brake pedal return might need more lubrication as car was in storage for many years)

- Newly-rebuilt original carb

- New electric fuel pump/fuel lines/gas tank clean out

- Several new front-end parts

- Does have exhaust noise at manifold (typical on these cars)


BODY:

- SUPER STRAIGHT sheet metal!- no dents or noticeable dings

- Finished in original "champaign metallic" color (repainted once with fading on top surfaces and scratches/chips here and there)

- Black "embassy" roof (replaced in past and fading/some minor cracking on top/minor pulling away from one side of windshield  pillar)

- Some minor rust along trunk lip, on lower bottom of passenger rear door, under vinyl top, and along both rear lower quarters (see pics for close-ups) - floors/frame etc all fine

- Driver quality chrome/brightwork (some fading on bumpers).  

- Needs trunk lock re-installed (have it in a box)


INTERIOR:

- All original black cloth interior with no rips/tears in seats or door panels (except minor cracks on driver door panel arm pad) - fabric has some sun fading on corners (see pics)

- Dash has crack along speaker edge (as almost all 67 Lincolns have) and fading

- Original carpet is in good shape - couple of worn spots here and there

- Headliner has a couple small holes (where it looks like something poked it)


ELECTRICAL:

-  Radio (factory AM) and power ant. working great

-  Lights (headlights, parking lights, taillights, brake lights, dash lights) all working great

-  Windows are not working (switches may need cleaning as car was in storage many years)

Wipers work sometimes but seem to have faulty/sticking switch

Power seat working fine


Overall, this is a terrific, all stock, super straight, LOW mileage,  highly-collectible  "suicide door" Lincoln that just needs some window/exhaust repairs and cosmetic refreshing/restoration to be either a nice driver or great restoration piece (with more work).  I just do not have the time to work on this one at this point.


Please ask ALL questions BEFORE bidding as the car is NOT 100 percent perfect show piece and is not being held out as such - please feel free to come inspect the car before bidding as the car is sold AS IS with no warranties, express or implied.  Given the brake light issue, the car should likely be transported.  I am not interested in any trades.  Thanks!

Ford recalling select Taurus, Explorer and Lincoln MKS models over fuel tanks

Sun, 31 Mar 2013 15:01:00 EST

Ford is recalling certain 2012 Taurus, 2013 Explorer and 2012 Lincoln MKS models over fuel tank concerns. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, vehicles built between July 19, 2011 and March 15, 2012 may have been built with fuel tanks that have a "marginally sealed seam" on the side. Those seams may not provide the strength necessary to protect the tank from rupture during a collision. They may also leak. The recall covers a total of 3,037 vehicles. NHTSA says that leaked fuel, in the presence of an ignition source, could easily cause a fire.
Dealers will inspect the tanks and replace them as need be free of charge. Owners can expect to be notified once the campaign begins on or around April 22, 2013. You can read the full NHTSA recall notice below for more information.

Lincoln to resurrect old nameplates for China?

Wed, 04 Dec 2013 10:00:00 EST

Judging by the success that many luxury automakers are currently experiencing in China, it's no surprise that Lincoln plans to take advantage of the situation by peddling its wares across the Pacific. Lincoln will open its first Chinese dealership next year, but potential buyers there won't be mucking through the same alphabet soup of car names found in American showrooms. USA Today reports that Ford's luxury car division could revert back to legacy names (like Continental and Zephyr) in China while keeping the MK_ names here in North America.
In speaking to Ford exec Jim Farley during the LA Auto Show, USA Today says that Lincoln could switch its naming structure as models are refreshed. Farley didn't confirm that the naming revamp would be a China-only decision, but article leaves little hope that American buyers will get to see the return of classic names anytime soon.
Why would Ford rehash old Lincoln names for China only? Buyers there seem to have a better historical associations with the nameplates than in the US. Chinese also still hold Lincoln in high regard, associating the marque with use by prominent government officials.

2015 Ford F-150 named Truck of Texas, Lincoln and Jeep also awarded at Truck Rodeo

Tue, 14 Oct 2014 09:28:00 EST

The Ford Motor Company has a lot of reasons to celebrate after winning eight categories in this year's Texas Auto Writers Association's annual Truck Rodeo. Most important among them, the Blue Oval's latest 2015 Ford F-150 earned the prestigious Truck of Texas award, ending the Ram 1500's two-year winning streak. The 2015 Lincoln MKC also grabbed the honor as the CUV of Texas, and Ford was named Truck Line of Texas.
FoMoCo even took trophies for best technology with its extensive use of aluminum on its latest F-Series and best commercial vehicle for the new Transit 250. It wasn't a total sweep, though, because the Jeep Grand Cherokee grabbed the title of the SUV of Texas for the fifth straight time.
This year's event put 60 auto writers in 75 pickups, SUVs and crossovers and challenged them to find the best in a plethora of categories. All of the winners are listed below, and scroll down to read the full announcements from the Texas Auto Writers Association and Ford.
