Description

A True Classic 1966 Lincoln Convertible

1966 was the first major styling change in this iconic American luxury car since 1960. This classic royal maroon convertible with only 84,929 miles was purchased in July 2014 from aprivate seller who purchased it from a collector who had owned and stored the car for the previous 44 years. The factory ski / luggage rack is a rare and seldom seen option.
The convertible top is original and other than a few pinholes, in great shape, goes up and down with ease and is water-tight. Some markings on top from adhesive near left rear door. The tires are also original and will likely need replaced if the car is to be driven much.
The gas tank is unknown and should be inspected and cleaned or replaced. However, the car starts right up with a temporary fuel cell and sounds great. The brakes will need to be replacedimmediately as they will NOT stop the car. I have a new master cylinder and related hardware that will be sold with the car.
The interior is in good condition but has a musty smell from years of storage. The original carpets are in good shape. The cream-colored leather seats are in good shape front and backfor being nearly 50 years old: no tears, rips or excessive signs of wear. The dash is free of cracks and fading. All electric windows and vents work freely with the exception of driver’s window. The glass is in good shape. The radio, antenna and clock work. Likewise the headlights except high beams (replacements to be sold with the car). One turn signal lamp needs to be replaced and the driver’s door interior handle needs attention.
The only significant known negative is some rust in the lower portion of the left front quarter panel and behind the rear wheels. The trunk is clean and solid. Likewise the floors to the best of my ability to inspect them.
While other financial obligations (and a 1987 M6) force this sale, reasonable bids are expected, the reserve price reflects the opportunity to own a car that is actually increasing in value andcan easily command twice this price with some attention and relatively small investment.
