Augusta, Maine, United States

This is a restored car from a Lincoln enthusiast who lived in Texas. I bought the car back in December 2010 and shipped to California. In May of 2013 had to move to Maine for family reasons, so the car was shipped again to Maine. I had high hopes of using the car a lot during the summer, but the summer was very short and very wet. And of corse the winters in Maine are extremely long about seven months, i still started the car once a week and let run for 10-15 minutes, that is why i'am selling the car. The car needs to be driven and enjoyed. About the car, the car has a blue exterior, the interior is also blue and the top is white. The tires are white wall Coker Classics. The paint on the car really shines like glass, and the paint chip are hard to see. The door jambs and door sills are original paint. At first i thought that was just being lazy by restorer. So i talked to him and he said he wanted to show how good the car is with no rust on bottom of doors and sills. If you know these cars this is a common spots for rust, that be said this car seems to be rust free, Just don't hold me to it there might be a spot some where on the car,  the car is 50+ years old. All of the chrome and stainless is in excellent shape. The bumpers where re chromed and shine almost like a mirror. The engine and transmission where rebuilt when restored, and runs perfect with lots of power, transmission shifts flawless. The top goes up and down like it should, looks like hoses were replaced, and maybe some of the hydraulics rams and pump were replaced to, just not sure all look newer or very clean. The interior seats are a blue vinyl, and so are the armrests no rips or scuffs, looks newer not original. Carpet is correct loop pile also looks newer not original. All the glass is in great shape no cracks or fogging. The top is also newer with no rips or scuffs, the plastic window for top is clear but has some small scuffs due to putting the top down, it scrapes on metal frame. I use a piece of foam tubing to protect from more damage when top is in trunk. The trunk lining looks all newer and redone. The dash has no cracks and looks original, but not sure. All the gauges are working and look great. I also have a set of original front seat belts i found on Ebay when i was looking for new antenna found these instead. Like i said before antenna can be fixed.  I described the car to the best of my knowledge, I'am not a mechanic or mechanically inclined. If you are most things can be fixed easily or installed like seat belts. I do recommend that you take a look at the car if you can. If you don't live in area a flight is not that bad even from Los Angeles, especially if your going to spend this kind of money on a classic car.  If you have any questions or need more pictures just email me, if you want to talk leave phone number. 

I also would like to say that my reserve is $10,000.00 or more "LESS" than some current and previous listing in recent months, of same year or similar years consisting of 1961-1967.

Lincoln MKC crossover headed for Detroit

Wed, 19 Dec 2012

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 TheDetroitBureau.com, 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.

MKC Concept is the real fresh start for Lincoln [w/poll]

Mon, 14 Jan 2013

We were admittedly bullish about the Lincoln MKC Concept when we introduced it to you yesterday, as we were taken aback by how cohesive the C-platform crossover is in the metal. As it turns out, so were you, dear reader. With hundreds of comments booked on our original Deep Dive story, the overwhelming temperature of the Autoblog Commenteriat is one of surprise and delight - quite an accomplishment for a marque that many had written off for dead. The reception here under the bright lights of the Detroit Auto Show appears to be no less positive, but we thought you might want a second, closer look afforded by these live photos.
Lincoln remains mum on production MKC drivetrain specifics (we're thinking it will start with the 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder out of its similarly sized Ford Escape relative, or maybe the midlevel 1.6-liter), but we shouldn't have to wait too long. The showcar is expected to closely mirror the production model (due as early as later this year), so much so that Ford global marketing boss Jim Farley explicitly told the press conference masses, "When you see the MKC, do not think concept." That's good news, as the MKC is pivotal to Lincoln's effort to rebuild awareness and consideration on the back of its MKZ sedan, a model just now going on sale. In fact, with the small crossover segment exploding, the MKC could very well turn out to be more important to the brand than the MKZ.
After seeing these new photos, are you more or less enamored with Lincoln's new concept? Leave a comment after voting in our poll below.

Ford recalls 83k Taurus and crossover models for halfshaft issue

Fri, 15 Aug 2014

Ford and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have issued a recall for some 83,250 vehicles in the US, for an issue with halfshafts. More specifically a "halfshaft retention circlip" might not have been properly installed on affected vehicles, with the result being halfshafts that may move improperly or disengage completely from the linkshaft while driving. The NHTSA release also notes that the issue may occur "without prior warning" which obviously factors in to the timeliness of getting this checked.
Should the halfshaft disengage, a few troubling things could happen. If it occurs while driving, power from the engine will no longer be transmitted to the wheels. And, if the vehicle is parked without the parking brake applied after disengagement of the circlip, vehicles may roll away even if they're transmissions have been placed in "Park."
Affected vehicles are as follows: Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX crossovers from model years 2012 to 2014; Ford Taurus and Lincoln MKS sedans from model years 2013 to 2014; Ford Flex and Lincoln MKT vehicles from model years 2013 to 2014.
