I FOUND THIS CAR IN A 92 YEAR OLD NEIGHBORS GARAGE. THE CAR LOOKS IN GREAT SHAPE. I CAN FIND NO RUST ON IT. PAINT HAS A FEW CHIPS AND A SMALL SCRATCH ON THE PASSENGER REAR QUARTER WHICH LOOKS LIKE IT WOULD BUFF OUT EASY. INTERIOR LOOKS GREAT. ONLY TEARS IN LEATHER ARE ON DOOR STRAPS WHICH SEEM TO BE COMMON IN EVERY LINCOLN THIS AGE. THE CAR STARTS RIGHT UP AND SEEMS TO RUN WELL. PROBABLY NEEDS A TUNE UP AND THE CARBORATOR CLEANED, AS THE GENTLEMA N SAYS IT WAS HIS WIFES CAR AND SHE PASSED AWAY 15 YEARS AGO. TRANSMISSION SEEMS GREAT. SHIFTS SMOOTH, NO PROBLEM. CLOCK DOESNT WORK AND AC DOESNT BLOW COLD. COMES WITH CLOTH COVER AND ALL THE MANUALS SHOWN IN PICTURE. GREAT FIND FOR A 40 YEAR OLD CAR IN DESERT SOUTHWEST. CAR IS NOT REGISTERED SO WILL NEED TO FIND SOMEONE TO SHIP. WARRANTY AS IS. NEED A $100 NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT AT END OF AUCTION. PLEASE ASK QUESTIONS AS I WILL TRY TO ANSWER THEM. THANKS FOR LOOKING

Lincoln 'not true luxury' yet, says Ford design chief

Wed, 28 Aug 2013 18:59:00 EST

Lincoln is "not true luxury," according to Ford's design boss, J Mays. His statements come from a story in The Detroit News that saw candid language on the issues facing Ford's troubled premium brand. Notably, there's a need for a strong character, with Mays saying, "Every brand needs to have a DNA and a unique selling point and things in the vehicle that make you think, 'That's that particular brand.'"
With a range of rebadged Fords, it's not hard to see why that DNA is missing. Mays hinted that a full recovery for Lincoln will be a ten-year process, that's been kicked off with the MKZ sedan. While that car is still largely a Ford Fusion under its extremely pretty wrapper, it's the first Lincoln in some time to inject its own unique take both through the exterior styling and through interior features, such as the vertical, pushbutton gear selection.
Some analysts weren't so certain about Mays' 10-year estimate. Jim Hall of 2953 Analytics thinks it'll be more like 30 years before Lincoln can show a true return to form. The issue, as Hall explains it, is that, "luxury has a degree of exclusivity," that Lincoln just doesn't have. Michelle Krebs from Edmunds adds, "it's definitely a wanna-be luxury brand," comparing the troubled American brand with Infiniti and Acura, two other brands that have struggled to find their place in the luxury market.

Consumer Reports explains its disdain for infotainment

Thu, 20 Mar 2014 19:14:00 EST

One of the perks of reviewing all manner of cars and trucks is that we're exposed to all the different infotainment systems. Whether Cadillac's CUE, Chrysler's UConnect, BMW's iDrive or MyFord Touch, we sample each and every infotainment system on the market.
Not surprisingly, some are better than others. It seems consumers have come to a similar consensus, with Consumer Reports claiming that Ford and Lincoln, Cadillac and Honda offer the worst user infotainment experiences. Not surprisingly, you won't find much argument among the Autoblog staff.
Take a look below to see just what it is about the latest batch of infotainment systems that grinds CR's gears. After that, scroll down into Comments and let us know if you agree with the mag's views.

Mulally wanted to kill Lincoln as late as last year, Fields vows to turn it around

Mon, 30 Jun 2014 17:29:00 EST

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.
