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 MKX Concept goes for the gold in Beijing

Sun, 20 Apr 2014 13:20:00 EST

We've now seen the Lincoln MKX Concept in the metal, and we've shot it with the lenses of our own DSLR cameras. And we have to say, our opinion of the concept's design language has improved over our initial reaction. Yes, it's clear that this MKX shares its underpinnings with those of the Ford Edge Concept that we saw in LA, but the changes made by Lincoln stylists are a welcome departure from the angular lines of its corporate cousin from The Blue Oval.
We like the subtlety of the MKX Concept's front fascia, and the lighting elements both front and rear lend a luxurious quality to the crossover's typical two-box proportions. When combined with the smaller MKC that was shown in production form late last year, it's clear to see that Lincoln has a specific design direction that at least seems visually capable of setting it apart from the Ford models with which the brand shares its platforms. Here's hoping there are some Lincoln-specific upgrades underhood...
Have a look at our image gallery of live photos from Beijing above, reread the press release below, and feel free to let us know what you think.

Lincoln MKC crossover headed for Detroit

Wed, 19 Dec 2012 17:44:00 EST

Fresh off the launch of the stylish new MKZ sedan, the newly named Lincoln Motor Company is reportedly preparing for a lineup expansion. According to, the first new product joining the Lincoln brand is a small crossover based on the Ford Escape said to be called the MKC. We saw this machine testing a few months ago, and while we were hoping the name might be reserved for a future two-door model or even the diminutive Concept C hatchback, it looks like the "C" will stand for compact crossover instead.
The report also says that this crossover will be making its debut next month at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, so we'll have to wait until then to see what the new model looks like. Unlike the MKX, which is based off the Ford Edge, we would expect there to be a lot more differentiation between the MKC and the Escape like Ford managed to do with the newest Fusion and MKZ.
In addition to the new MKC, the article states new MKS and Navigator designs are expected to debut by 2014.
