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

"We're really trying to simplify for the customer on their terms." - Paul Bucek
Lincoln is launching a Black Label service and customization program in December at 32 dealerships across the country in a bid to attract new and more upscale customers.
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.
Ford Motor Company is announcing a major personnel shakeup that could have a dramatic effect on the future of the Lincoln division. Kumar Galhotra (pictured above), currently vice president of engineering at Ford for all of its vehicles worldwide, is taking over as the president of the luxury brand on September 1, replacing Jim Farley. The automaker is also hiring a new head of advanced engineering.
Galhotra has a huge job ahead of him as the new boss of Lincoln worldwide, overseeing product development, marketing, sales and service. His task is to turn the luxury division into a world-class brand as quickly as possible, and he reports directly to Ford President and CEO Mark Fields.
"These changes underscore our commitment to build on the success of our One Ford plan by accelerating our pace of progress. They also make clear we are serious about Lincoln as a world-class luxury brand and that product excellence and innovation are what will deliver growth and define our entire company going forward," said Fields in the company's announcement.
