1978 Lincoln Continental Limousine 7.5L 460ci V8 / 3spd C6 Automatic


Description


Blemishes are all shown up close. Blemishes include spots of bubbling (most significant is on passenger middle “door”), a scuff on the driver's rocker trim, as well as a handful of chips and scratches scattered about. Midnight Blue is the correct original color, and the car has been repainted once. Paint cleans up well, but it is approaching thirty years old now so it isn't perfect. Midnight Blue vinyl top is in fantastic shape, with no scuffs or damage. Body is nice and straight...only one little door ding (lower driver's door). Doors open and close nice and smooth, but the driver's door could close up tighter to the body. Polished surfaces are in really nice shape throughout – no pitting or oxidation. Mid-line trim pieces are free of any wrinkles or damage. Glass and light lenses are all clear and crack-free. Flip-up headlights are functional. Wheels are in great shape, with no curb rash or damage, and the Michelin white wall tires are free of dry rot or significant wear.
We cleaned the hell outta this interior, scrubbing and filtering it so to eliminate any musty smells, but admittedly it could still be further detailed. Regardless, plan on replacing the rear carpet straightaway. Rear radio, fan/ac control, and television setup are all functional. Up front, the radio is also functional, and the car will come with a bunch of 8 tracks, as well as a tape-to-8-track-converter. Air conditioning is still on R12 refrigerant and, while the compressor does seem to kick on and air blows out with force, air does not blow cold. Heat and fan are good. Seats are in nice shape, light blue velour having survived pretty well. You can see looking through the photos of the seat bottoms in the rear is a bit tired, whereas the front is really, really nice. Light blue headliner is tight and in good shape. Dash is free of any cracks up top, as well as in the “wood” facing. Carpeting up front is in great shape, with no fraying or discoloring. No floor mats will come with the car.
The car now runs and drives very, very well. Smooth and silent. The car starts right up first turn, idles cool, steady, and quiet, pulls hard and without hesitation, shifts smoothly and on time, doesn't clunk going into gear, tracks straight, and brakes straight and effectively. Truly very well-sorted.
