1979 Lincoln Continental Base Hardtop 4-door 6.6l No Reserve on 2040-cars

Year:1979 Mileage:51071

Fargo, North Dakota, United States

Fargo, North Dakota, United States

 I have owned this Lincoln for about 17 years and bought it from the second owner who had owned it since 1980.  He was VERY old, but claimed that the 48,000 miles at the time were original (I have no way to know if this is true or if it is 550,000, but the car is pretty nice and has not been repainted)  The odometer now shows 51,071.  It has been stored amongst my collection in dry heated storage since I bought the car.  This is an all original car inside and out.  As seen in the pictures it does have some rust, but is not a rust bucket.  I photographed the worst sections of rust, (one rear door jamb and one rear fender) none of the other door jambs have considerable rust as one does. Otherwise the paint still retains a great gloss and looks spectacular going down the road.  The original painted pinstripes are still intact in in good shape overall.  Bumpers and bright work are shiny and nice.  Glass is all good. The interior is virtually flawless with light blue velour seats, an uncracked dash, good wood grain trim, clean door panels with no cracks or tears in armrests or pulls.  Original floor mats and carpets are both in great shape.  I installed an am/fm/cd player with remote under the dash without any cutting or drilling whatsoever. All power windows work (including power vents), power locks work except the driver door which needs an actuator, power seats work, air conditioning blows cold, cruise control works, brakes are great, all gauges work, power trunk release works, illuminated entry works, wipers work.  This is an outstanding driver-quality car which is always a kick at cruise-in car shows.  Car starts and runs great and drives quiet and straight like a Lincoln should!  I would drive the car anywhere and am selling because it gets driven so seldom.  It has, however, been started and driven sparingly on a regular basis to prevent the seals from shrinking and leaking.  Please feel free to message with any questions, or call John at 701-729-6839.  NO RESERVE

Lincoln trumpets $129M investment, 300 new jobs in Louisville for MKC

Tue, 26 Aug 2014

Remember when we used to talk about how close Lincoln was to being axed and how it seemed any day now the Grim Reaper would use it as a car service back to the grave? Last time we did it was, oh, not even a month ago. What a difference 27 days makes: Ford and Lincoln are trumpeting a $129M investment in the Louisville Assembly Plant that builds the MKC.
In July the MKC was the third-best-selling Lincoln of the brand's six offerings, beat by the MKZ and - by a much smaller margin - the MKX. It has sold 2,895 units in the two months it's been on sale, which is more than half the year-to-date sales of the MKS, MKT and Navigator. It's already important, is what we're trying to say, and this is before the Chinese market gets a crack at it later this year.
The money headed to Kentucky will be joined by 300 new workers, another marker in Ford's march to create 12,000 hourly jobs in the US by next year. You can read more about it in the press release below.

Ford announces free brake pad offer if customers stop by dealers

Mon, 04 Aug 2014

These days, when you buy a new car, it's not unreasonable to expect a certain period of free maintenance to come along as well. Sometimes this is through the life of the warranty, in other cases a little less. But Ford Motor Company is going beyond those deals for at least one part of its cars. As of now, if you buy a set of Motorcraft brake pads for a Ford, Lincoln or Mercury model, you get free replacements for as long as you own the vehicle. The offer is good at Ford or Lincoln dealers and Quick Lane Tire & Auto Centers.
"We will replace the pads for as long as you own the vehicle," said Elizabeth Weigandt to Autoblog. She did clarify that the Motorcraft pads are generally for models from the '90s or newer. Also, to take advantage of this program, a person must return to the same dealer each time to get the free parts.
Of course, Ford isn't just handing out brake pads to anyone who walks by; there are certain stipulations. First, the components have to be worn down to less than three millimeters to be eligible, and the buyer still has to pay for the labor to install them. If the model is used as a fleet vehicle for commercial purposes like as a taxi or limousine, this offer also doesn't apply; the same thing for racecars. On the plus side, if you recently bought a set of pads from one of the participating locations, you're still in luck. The deal covers parts purchased as of July 1.
