Customized by Caponez Kustomz out of Denver, Colorado. Do an internet search on them, they do some cool cars.
Black on black '64 Lincoln Continental with all original interior. Exterior is not the original color, but is a
beautiful glossy black.
The chrome trim does show signs of wear. There is a dent in the rear left bumper end cap.
The tail-lights have been replaced and tinted. Dashboard is also tinted. All gauges work fine, however the gas
gauge sometimes acts up.
I drive this almost daily, I keep it tuned and it starts right up every time. Drives and glides beautifully. There
are no issues with the transmission or engine, it purrs!
AC is working, not ice cold, but it does work.
This was customized to be a Presidential Edition, with the Presidential seal instead of the Lincoln logos on the
side panels behind the passenger door windows. These can also be found on the trunk and between the rear seats.
Hood emblem has been replaced with a '64 Kennedy emblem and the grille changed to a match the limousine of the
infamous Kennedy Lincoln.
There is limo tint on all windows with the exception of the windshield.
The trunk is lined with rhino liner, but no carpet was installed.
All keyholes have been shaved, including the trunk. The trunk has a push release button hidden in the ashtray.
Lowered with a 4" drop for a more aggressive stance.
Original stock rims with hubcaps plastidipped, which can be easily removed.
Power windows are a little sluggish, but they all work.
The engine has been painted.
Underside has been sprayed with protective coating.
All in all, this is a great car, a real head turner.

A total of 20 Ford customers are suing the automaker in a class-action lawsuit for selling vehicles "vulnerable to unintended acceleration." According to Reuters, the suit names 30 models built between 2002 and 2010 with electronic throttle control systems but without a brake override system. Those include the 2004-2012 F-Series pickups and the 2005-2009 Lincoln Town Car. Adam Levitt, a partner with the law firm of Grant & Eisenhofer says the plaintiffs in the case want "to be compensated for their economic losses by having overpaid for cars that contained defects." Levitt contends that the plaintiffs would not have bought their vehicles or paid less for them had they known there was no brake override system in place.
Ford began installing brake override systems in its vehicles beginning in 2010. In response to the lawsuit, Ford has pointed to research by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that indicated that unintended acceleration is mostly caused by driver error, saying in a statement that, "NHTSA's work is far more scientific and trustworthy than work done by personal injury lawyers and their paid experts."
Belville et al v. Ford Motor Co. will be heard in US District Court in the Southern District of West Virginia.
With recent news that the Secret Service has begun soliciting proposals for a new armored limousine, we've been wondering what the next presidential limo might look like. The current machine, nicknamed "The Beast", has a design based on a car that's no longer sold: the Cadillac DTS. If General Motors gets the job again, which wouldn't be a surprise considering the government still owns a chunk of the company, the next limo's shape would likely resemble the new XTS (below, left). But Cadillac hasn't always been the go-to car company for presidential whips.
Lincoln has actually provided far more presidential limousines throughout history than Cadillac. In fact, the first car modified for Commander-in-Chief-carrying duty was a 1939 Lincoln K-Series called "Sunshine Special" used by Franklin D. Roosevelt, and the last Lincoln used by a president was a 1989 Town Car ordered for George H.W. Bush. If President Obama wanted a Lincoln today, it would likely be an amalgam of the MKS sedan and MKT crossover, as illustrated above.
And what about Chrysler? The only record we could find of a President favoring the Pentastar is Nixon, who reportedly ordered two limos from the company during his administration in the '70s, and then another one, known today as the "K-Car limo," in the '80s after he left office. Obama, however, has a personal - if modest - connection to Chryslers, having owned a 300 himself before he took office. A 300-based Beast (above, right) would certainly earn the U.S. some style points.
Consumer Reports has announced its annual list of worst vehicles, a cringe-inducing contrast to its list of top vehicles. Ignominiously leading the way in 2014 is Chrysler, which has a staggering seven models listed.
Jeep nearly sweeps the small SUV segment by itself, with its Compass, Patriot and 2.4-liter version of the new Cherokee, while the only midsize sedans listed by CR were the Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger. The new Dodge Dart and the Dodge Journey round out CR's condemnation of Chrysler.
Ford is taking heat as well, with the Taurus, Edge and their counterparts from Lincoln all listed as the worst vehicles in their respective segments. Toyota doesn't fare much better, with its Lexus IS, Scion iQ and tC also making the list.
