1996 Lincoln Continental Anniversary Sedan 4-door 4.6l on 2040-cars

Year:1996 Mileage:115000
Location:

Carlsbad, New Mexico, United States

Carlsbad, New Mexico, United States

This 1996 Lincoln Continental is in what most would consider better than average condition for the year and miles that I estimate to be around 115,000.  I estimate this because the Instrument cluster has stopped working.  No speedometer, odometer, tachometer, fuel gauge, etc., and no dash lights.  All other lights work as they should, as well as the climate controls and stereo, and other power accessories.  I bought this car for my wife in 2011.  It had just gone over the 100,000 mile mark at that time.  The car was used mainly for around-town driving and an occasional out of town trip.  It still starts, runs and drives well, and up until last month continued to be a daily driver, even with the problem it currently has.  The gauges went out about a year and a half ago, and we did notice the steering seems harder,  but the power steering unit is working. We continued to drive the car around town with no problems. This indicates to me that this could be a simple fix, possibly some kind of module, whatever controls the gauges?  I'm more of a paint and body man than a mechanic, and I've checked the fuses and put a used instrument cluster in it as well, but no change.  My wife and I both recently upgraded into newer vehicles, and the Lincoln has been parked for about a month.  I have no desire to spend any money to fix this car, because we don't need another vehicle to insure. Here's someone's chance to own a very nice, super clean Lincoln Continental that can be driven as is or repaired and driven for many years to come.  I will include in the sale the instrument cluster that I removed, as the used one I bought has been installed and will stay where it's at.  Please look closely at the pictures.  The only body damage is a very minor blemish to the left side of the rear bumper as seen in the pic, and of course a few parking lot door dings, and very few of those!  Interior is nice, a few small stains in carpet that will easily clean i'm sure, Leather seats in near perfect condition with no rips or tears, no dash cracks.  The inside door panel on the driver's door is showing wear, with a few cracks in the armrest as seen in the pic.The catalytic converters were replaced August 2011, and the rear air suspension (bags) were replaced with coil springs designed and made for the car.  Any questions please ask, I check my email and EBAY frequently, and can respond quickly. Please note that this vehicle is also for sale locally, and this listing will be removed if it does sell.  Reserve is set really low, Good luck and bid to win!

Ellen DeGeneres sends up Matthew McConaughey's Lincoln ad

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 12:43:00 EST

Lincoln had to have known that when it released its new ad campaign for the new MKC with Matthew McConaughey, it would open itself up to a bit of good old fashioned ridicule. The television commercial was, after all, good for a laugh or two. And true to their mission, talk show hosts haven't missed the opportunity to have a little fun at Lincoln's and McConaughey's expense.
Conan O'Brien was first to send up the television spot, but now Ellen DeGeneres has taken a stab at it too, superimposing herself in the back seat of the compact luxury crossover, downing some pot brownies and generally playing Costello to McConaughey's Abbott. It's worth a watch, if only to see Ellen getting down in her usual, offbeat style.

Lincoln says MKZ supply crisis over

Mon, 25 Mar 2013 11:00:00 EST

After an excessive number of recalls on the 2013 Escape and Fusion, we can't really fault Ford for being a little extra cautious with the launch of the 2013 Lincoln MKZ. Last month, we reported that dealer supply of the car was extremely limited due to more attention being paid to quality checks of cars rolling off the assembly line, which led to a 73-percent drop in MKZ sales from last year on top of a 32-year low in monthly sales for Lincoln in January.
The reason for the delay was that the sedans were being shipped from the Hermosillo, Mexico assembly plant to be inspected even closer at Ford's Flat Rock, Michigan plant before they were able to head to dealers. Things seem to be straightening out for Lincoln and the MKZ's production now, as Automotive News is reporting that supply should be up to a "normal level" by the end of this month.
