Glenwood Landing, New York, United States

 This is a NO RESERVE AUCTION. Please, I ask that you not bid unless you fully intend on purchasing this vehicle.

I acquired this car in July of this year with 65,200 miles. Since then, it has traveled 5300 miles with ZERO mechanical problems. There are a couple of issues that I will go over later in this post. Lets start now with the positives!

  • I am the second owner of this Lincoln. The first owner resided in PA.
  • The air suspension is original, along with all front end components. It's tight as a drum on the highway and there is ZERO play in the steering. When I had a set of 18' polished Bullitts, this car handled like it was on rails! Truly remarkable what a set of tires could do for handling performance of such a large car! Not once has the suspension been a concern. It has stayed up for weeks on end while in the garage. It also lowers as it should on the highway when you are cruising at speeds in excess of 60 MPH, and raises itself when back onto local road speeds.
  • Air conditioning is in great working order as well. The car remained comfortably COOL even in temps reaching 115 degrees. YES, YOU READ CORRECTLY! We did have temps that reached 115 in NYC this past summer
  • Interior door panels, switches, CUP HOLDERS (I know lots of people ask about this one all the time), and other items look and work as they should.


Does it qualify for classic insurance?

  • YES IT DOES! I currently pay $120 a year for full coverage at $7000 in agreed value. I will refer you to the company that I do business with if you wish. I have 3 Lincolns currently with them! 

What needs attention:

  • Tilt steering recently decided it wanted to work, then didn't want to work again. It is stuck in the downward position...This really didn't bother me because thats where I like it any time I drive. My fiance drove the car recently and we discovered it was not working. . THE TELESCOPIC PORTION DOES WORK!
  • The blend door actuator will need to be replaced in order to get heat. There is a work around for it I am told. However, I am FAR FROM HANDY so I have never attempted to fix it. It never really bothered me since I drive the car when the weather permits anyhow. 
  • Chrome on the grille is peeling
  • Mechanic stated that the lower control arm bushings need to be done


This is a very clean original driver that you can enjoy without worrying about driving it anywhere. I've taken it a few times to Mohegan sun, and to Atlantic city. Wherever the car goes, it usually tends to get compliments!

In closing, I encourage you to see the car for yourself prior to bidding, and I am more than willing to go to any mechanics that are local. There is nothing for me to hide, she is a fantastic car!!!! We are selling this because we need to lease a new SUV for our baby coming up in May. We are excited, and unfortunately, toys need to go!

Please contact me at 718-865-7599 with any questions at all =)

Thanks, and happy bidding!!!!

Ford faces class-action lawsuit for selling vehicles without brake override systems

Fri, 29 Mar 2013

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.

What will the next Presidential limo look like?

Thu, 25 Jul 2013

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.

Matthew McConaughey dusts off his Lincoln Lawyer jacket [w/videos]

Thu, 21 Aug 2014

Alright, alright, alright. Easygoing Texan Matthew McConaughey has enjoyed a career renaissance recently with critically acclaimed roles in Dallas Buyers Club and True Detective, and the actor has just signed a multi-year deal with Lincoln to become the luxury brand's spokesperson. The first ads starring McConaughey should hit televisions and the internet soon.
McConaughey's campaign has his pitching starting out with the company's pivotal new 2015 Lincoln MKC compact crossover. "Lincoln is an iconic, American brand and I like where they are heading with their transformation," he said in the announcement of the deal. The appears to be really throwing some money into these ads, too. Not only has it hired A-list talent in front of the camera, Nicolas Winding Refn, best known for Drive, is directing the spots.
Of course, this won't be McConaughey's first noteworthy ride in a Lincoln. Back in 2011, he starred in The Lincoln Lawyer, a legal thriller about at attorney would did business out of a 1980s Town Car. The MKC should certainly prove to be a much better driver than that.
