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

Year:1996 Mileage:115000

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!

Lincoln needs a farewell address, not a new marketing plan

Tue, 09 Apr 2013 18:44:00 EST

The trouble with Ford's Lincoln brand is that no one cares about it any more.
Not long after I heard that Mark LaNeve, chief operating officer of Ford agency Team Detroit, was moving to take over direct operations of the New York ad agency Hudson Rouge for Lincoln, I heard that JCPenney CEO Ron Johnson was ousted. The two events are connected.

Lincoln putting perfume on its sales

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 08:32:00 EST

Lincoln has a scent. But unlike those from Mustang, Lamborghini or even Shark by Tara, you can't buy it and you have to visit a Lincoln dealership to inhale its notes of jasmine hedione, mate tea leaves and tonka beans. Essence of Lincoln - that's what it's called - is being piped through the ventilation systems at some showrooms to help "create an emotional connection between the luxury brand and its customers," and olfactorily promote the idea of "luxury and warmth." Where it's not run through the ducts, visitors can sample it on scent cards.
Master perfumer Rene Morgenthaler worked with aroma house SensoryMax to design Essence of Lincoln. Also including traces of Earl Grey bergamot and green tea, whenever you encounter it you're meant to enjoy "a feeling of belonging to an exclusive, forward-thinking group that values style and success." And then buy an MKC. There's a press release below with details and an image to explain more, if you're still having a little trouble smelling the orange blossoms.

Lincoln and MKZ propose brand reinvention

Mon, 03 Dec 2012 13:29:00 EST

Lincoln made a rather assertive statement about the future of its products at the 2012 LA Auto Show. Rather than put any new vehicle on display for the first press day, the American premium brand placed a collection of classic cars from its past on the show floor. For the second day, that assortment was replaced with more than a half-dozen examples of the all-new 2013 MKZ. Following that, Lincoln teased a new ad campaign that was in the works, and it appears we now have the first extended promotional video.
Entitled "The Lincoln Motor Company," the spot acts as more of a mission statement, rather than an ad, featuring (once again) cars from Lincoln's past, as well as certain bits of Americana usually reserved for a Levi's ad. The video concluded with Lincoln reintroducing itself to the world, accompanied by a new name: The Lincoln Motor Company.
The video is likely to be the first of many in a large advertising blitz by the automaker, in concert with the rolling-out of the new MKZ. The sedan was the only new vehicle featured in the video, and Lincoln is betting heavily on this "reinvention" to bring customers in to see its new sedan. We want to know what's next. Scroll down to watch the video.
