1996 Lincoln Continental Anniversary Sedan 4-door 4.6l on 2040-cars
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 fans might want to give incoming Ford CEO Mark Fields a pat on the back for having a hand in saving the brand from the chopping block last year. He's among the people spearheading the rejuvenation of the division away from its stodgy image to appeal to younger customers.

According to two unnamed sources speaking to Bloomberg, CEO Alan Mulally was ready to kill Lincoln last year. Following the slow production ramp-up of the MKZ combined a with a costly ad campaign, Mulally was frustrated and openly suggested dropping the brand. However, Fields and Jim Farley, Ford's marketing boss, convinced the CEO that the brand was worth saving. They also created a plan to prevent similar problems for new models in the future.
It seems that one part of the strategy may involve waiting until new models are at dealers before starting a big ad campaign for them. Lincoln global director, Matt VanDyke, recently told Autoblog that the division is holding off on a full marketing push behind the new MKC crossover to prevent the supply problems that plagued the MKZ last year. Its big offensive begins in the fall when the CUVs are at all of the dealers and consumers are at home watching more TV. VanDyke also told Bloomberg that Fields, Farley and Joe Hinrichs, Ford president of the Americas, have more direct oversight over new product launches now.
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 has officially pulled off the wraps on its ad for this year's Super Bowl. As you may recall, the company invited people to send in their tweets to help craft the spot's story line with Jimmy Fallon in the director's chair. The company chose five tweets and ran with them, and the result is, well, about as focused as your average online comment thread. We do get plenty of shots of the all-new Lincoln MKZ, as well as at least one comment on the interior leather's suppleness.
Do we learn a single thing about the brand's new honey? Nope. But there's a turtle crossing, a band of bikers, a German farming student and herd of alpacas. Mostly, the ad just makes us tired. You can check out the full spot before it airs during the big game by watching it below. We'll be busy preparing for the alpacalypse.
