 You are bidding on a beautiful 1961 Lincoln Continental convertible.This is a very rare car that has a newly rebuilt[less than 1000 miles] original 430 motor,almost new convertible top, and a 3yr. old base coat-clear coat paint job in as close to original color as we could find.The body and paint is super straight and is extremely shiny.The door panels were all redone in original patterns 2yrs. ago and the seats were redone a few yrs. ago and are in extremely good condition.This cars always starts right up and drives down the road like a Lincoln should.The transmission shifts like it should.It is a very comfortable cruising car.Now for the bad.As you can see in the pictures the top works,but sometimes you have to give it some help like pushing the trunk flap up or down or stopping and starting it again.There are some wear spots in the paint where the top sits on the car behind the back seat on both pass. + drivers side[no rust or anything] and a small surface crack in the paint about 1inch long[you hardly can notice] ,that a good painter could match and repaint easily[see last 2 pictures]. Three of the power windows work and 1 doesn't.All of the electrical work,lights,turn signals,wipers,heater etc.,except the clock.I see there is one on ebay that ended sunday for 67,000.00.Of course mine needs some work to be that nice,but I just am saying any money you put into this car you will get back out.I have owned the car[and have a clear title in my name] for over 10 yrs.and have driven it every summer and it is a very nice driver car that is all original, and everything is there if you want to make a show car out of it.I am looking to retire soon and am selling off my cars[including a 1959 Edsel convertible] and  have priced this car as a driver quality car,but please don't ask the reserve as I am going to let the auction run its course.Please give me 24hrs. to return emails or call me on my cell[10am-7pm,PST] 1-208-664-0125,Thanks Harry.

Ford announces four recalls, 1.4M vehicles affected

Thu, 29 May 2014

Ford is taking a bit of the spotlight away from General Motors, announcing a major group of recall campaigns, covering a total of 1.4 million vehicles built between 2006 and 2013.
Let's start with the big one, which covers the Ford Escape, Mercury Mariner and, according to The Detroit News, Ford-built Mazda Tribute CUVs. 915,216 vehicles are covered, all of which were built in model years 2008 to 2011. 736,000 vehicles are in the US, while Canada then Mexico make up the vast majority of the remainder. The problem is due to an issue with the torque sensor in the steering column, which could lead to sudden power steering failure. Manual steering would still be available, though.
"Dealers will perform one of three service fixes, depending upon what diagnostic codes are shown when the vehicle is taken to the dealer," Ford spokeswoman Kelli Felker wrote to Autoblog in an email. "They will either update software for the power steering control module and the instrument cluster module; replace the torque sensor; or replace the steering column, which includes upgraded power steering control module software."

Never mind the naysayers; Lincoln is worth saving

In the case of Henry Leland, naming his new car brand after the first President he cast a vote for in 1864 seemed a jolly good idea, on paper.
You should always be careful about the name you choose to give your new baby. The power of association can work in many ways, not always positive.

Ford recalling 205k Edge and Lincoln MKX units for possible corrosion

Thu, 30 Oct 2014

After the horrible weather last winter, it's hard to look forward for the season to return this year. For those readers in much of the country, the snow is going to be flying soon, and with it comes salt on the roads. That means Ford's regional recall for the 2007-2008 Edge and Lincoln MKX arrives at the perfect time because they are at risk for corrosion.
The campaign covers 204,448 examples of the models in 21 states, plus the District of Columbia and some provinces of Canada. In total there are 186,024 vehicles in need of repair in the US and 18,424 in Canada.
According to Ford, it's possible for the area, "under the reinforcement brackets where the fuel tank is mounted" to corrode. If this happens, there might be a gas smell in the vehicle or even a fuel leak could develop. In fact, the automaker reports that one fire could be related to the problem but no injuries or accidents are reported.
