1973 LINCOLN CONTINENTAL - 2 DOOR - 2nd owner.

Please read ad before inquiring.

WHAT'S GOOD ABOUT IT: This car was painted by Texas artist Frank X. Tolbert Jr. and used as an "art car" for a few years. It's a one of a kind.

CONDITION: It runs. Kind of. It was parked about 8 years ago, and hasn't been driven since. Up until that time, it was meticulously cared for. Original owner willed it to her grand daughter who drove it and made it into an art car. Interior is intact, a few rips in the seats. It's not clean, it's been sitting. But it's intact. 

I recently turned the engine over enough to make sure the fuel pump works. (Disconnected from the engine). It must have the tank dropped and all of the systems flushed before trying to start this car. I was quoted about $300 from a mechanic to clean it up and get it running. But there is nothing major wrong with any of the systems, or at least there certainly weren't when it was last driven. 

Tires are in bad shape, but 2 of them hold air for about a day, and 2 of them last longer. But they will pump up for towing purposes. They can all four hold aid long enough to be pulled up onto the back of a tow truck. 

Which brings me to:

YOU MUST TOW THIS VEHICLE AWAY WITH A TOW TRUCK. Don't expect to have your buddy pull you with a chain behind his truck. It needs a real flat bed tow truck. 

TITLE: No title. It's around here somewhere, but let's just proceed. I can't find it. It's clear, I can assure you of that. There are no issues. 

Pictures show dirt because it's dirty. I decided not to wash it. I rinsed it, but it needs a good scrubbing, and I wanted to leave that up to whomever buys it due to the artwork that's on it. 

This is really a nice car, with a great paint job. Someone will love this. 

Contact me with any questions. $1,000 firm. It's easily worth $1,000. Priced to sell.

Ford hybrids getting update to improve fuel economy

Tue, 16 Jul 2013 20:00:00 EST

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.

Lincoln MKC prototype spied out testing

Wed, 20 Mar 2013 19:14:00 EST

As was the case with the Lincoln MKZ, it appears that Lincoln isn't wasting any time getting its newest model transformed from concept to production form. We just saw the MKC Concept earlier this year at the Detroit Auto Show, and based on these spy shots, it looks like the final touches are being put in place for the 2014 Lincoln MKC crossover.
Sharing its platform with the Ford Escape, we can definitely see some similarities between these two compact crossovers when it comes to the roofline and daylight opening, but through the heavy camouflage, Lincoln's signature split-wing grille can easily be seen and it looks like the concept's taillights will also make it to reality. On the disappointing side, it looks like the integrated exhaust outlets are being ditched for some round outlets, and we can't tell if the production version will keep the Audi-like clamshell rear liftgate.

Rebranding When Reinvention Is Requisite
Lincoln - pardon us, the Lincoln Motor Company - assures us that Ford is committed to its success. The awkwardness of the statement (which feels vaguely like your mother telling you that she loves and supports you regardless of what everyone else thinks) was hard to escape when we recently spent a few days with the all-new second-generation 2013 Lincoln MKZ.
Launched earlier this year at the 2012 New York Auto Show, the MKZ is a midsize premium sedan that shares platforms with the Ford Fusion (also all-new for 2013). The sedan's primary competitors, according to Lincoln, include the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series, Cadillac CTS and Lexus ES Series sedans - each an established, accomplished player.
