Description

NR 1976 Lincoln Continental 2 Door RUNS & DRIVES 100%
This is a no reserve auction. Any questions, ask before bidding!
Up for auction is my 1976 Lincoln Continental. Clean clear title in hand. I had plans for this but as they say, plans change. I'll do my best to describe the Lincoln. I will break her down into areas. Feel free to ask questions. Additional pics available upon request.
Basics:
Clean clear title in hand. Has the 460 with 144000 +/- miles. Automatic. Power brakes, power steering, power windows, power locks, cruise, A/C. Car runs and drives 100%. I would feel safe driving this home. When I bought her I drover 3 hours home with no issues. Car is not inspected as it was registered as a classic. Far too nice for parts or derby.
History:
I bought her off some folks who owned it since 1998. The Lincoln was registered as a classic. The story I was told, was the Lincoln was only driven in the nicer weather months. She was garage kept. I bought her with intentions of making real nice. However as I said earlier plans change. I drove her home 3 hours without any issue.
The body:
She is very solid and straight. There is some rust, with the most notable on the hood. I had a body shop friend of mine take a look and he said with a little sand blasting and priming & paint it would be as good as new. Other than the hood I would consider everything else minor. Everything is here trim wise. Weather stripping needs replaced around windows on doors. Underside of the car is nice with no rust issues. White vinyl top is in ok shape. Not bad at all for almost 40 years old!
Engine.
As I stated earlier this has the 460. She'll fire right up after a couple pumps of the gas peddle. Some where along the line some repaced the carb w/ a Holley 4 barrel. Engine runs good with no odd noise or smoke. Engine compartment looks good and clean. I'm sure she would benefit from a tune up.
Transmission.
Automatic. Shifts fine. Universal clunks a little when going into reverse.
Brakes:
Work fine w/ no odd noises or leaks.
Tires:
Like new.
Interior:
Seats are white leather and are showing some wear but nothing terrible. Head liner has a small rip. Dash & gauges are all nice. Dash is Tan. Door panels are nice but do show some wear.
Accessories:
The heater core is by passed. I am assuming it is bad. There are no signs of a leak on the floor/carpet on the inside. A/C would need converted/charged. Power window - Drivers side works, passenger side does not. Power lock - Passenger side works, drivers side does not. I think with a little lubing this would be corrected. Cruise works. Don't know about the 8 track as I don't own any to test it but the radio works. Power antenna does not work. There is power at the switch and to the motor. The cable for the mast is broken. Antenna is currently up. Rear defrost works.
Misc:
Passenger side ball joint is "creaky". Would need replaced. I greased it and it quieted it some, but is still noisy. Rides fine, just sounds like a creaky door when turning
