    • I do not need help selling this car. Please do not offer car sales services to me. The phone number in this ad does not have a voicemail that I check. I am at this phone usually between 10AM and 5PM Monday through Thursday and the number will be disconnected when the vehicle sells. That is to say, do not add me to any call lists or I will report you to every single agency and entity that I can report you to. I work for a major phone company and I know the right people to help you see the light.

      Now... to the good stuff.

      Selling my garage-kept 1968 Lincoln Continental with an original <48K mi. in the color Belmont Green with a dark green leather interior.

      Just did an oil change (10W30) along with ZDDP zinc additive and also replaced the brake master cylinder with a brand new (non-remanufactured) unit (the non-replaceable and often rotted seal behind it looks brand new). It doesn't leak oil. I did, on the other hand, completely miss where the oil would drain and got oil all over my garage floor... that was super awesome. That's why kitty litter was invented, right?!

      Pretty much all of the options you can get in a '68 as far as I know excluding the (apparently available) TV sets and a passenger-side mirror (which would certainly be helpful backing this slab up). The options even include an engine block heater (don't know if it works).

      Everything is original except for having installed a Pertronix II setup (I still have the perfectly good points) and an Optima Red Top battery. I recently replaced the plugs and wires with all Motorcraft gear. It does have air conditioning but it doesn't work at this time (I know at least it needs a recharge). It has the typical exhaust leak (driver's side bank) that all of these old Lincolns end up getting. It's not burning oil that I'm aware of (exhaust doesn't indicate it) but I'm of the mind that a full rebuild is the best thing for it nonetheless.

      The previous owner's father (who was the original owner) only drove it on occasion. I only drove it basically only to car shows and once to pick up my grandmother at the airport. Never been in the rain with me.

      Sale includes a spare MEL 462 engine and associated transmission from a 1967 Lincoln Continental, both of which were rebuilt in the late 80's. No discount if you don't want them - I'll make me a rat rod with them or something. The spare engine was running about a year ago but I do not have the equipment to run it to demonstrate - it does turn.

      Also comes with all of the parts you see in the trunk including a new timing chain and sprocket, new pushrods, a set of new belts, a new high-volume oil pump and associated gaskets. (I had been accumulating parts for a full rebuild, which is why I have that stuff. I don't actually now if it needs them or not.) You also you see the Pertronix box inside of which is the original points/coil. I also include a cover that fits the car perfectly (not shown in photos). I also have a spare front passenger door from the same car the aforementioned engine/tranny came from. I can bubble wrap that and throw it in the trunk for you (it's heavy as sin though). Perhaps you may want that...

      Buyer must provide full payment within 7-days via a secure payment method that does not force me to incur percentage fees. If you want to use a credit card, I can take it, but you will need to agree to a 5% up-charge to cover the ridiculous fees they charge me. I wouldn't expect anyone to buy this with a credit card but, hey, you can get the points! Anyway, the car will not change hands until payment has cleared, therefore pay via a bank check/money order or cash. If you write a regular check, it will have to clear before I let the car go.

      As with all used car sales, is as-is. This is an as-is unrestored classic car purchase - there are no refunds, no partial refunds, and no whining if you don't like how it looks, runs, or drives. I get compliments on it every single time it sees the light of day outside of the garage. I get offers every time it's out, too - just not from the right people. I won't sell to anyone that tells me they want to modify it into some lowrider, big rim piece of crap. If that's what you want to do, keep your mouth shut! :)

      I can take any picture or video you request - just ask and give me some time and I'll send them. I'm happy to take it to a mechanic local to me (within 30 mi. of my home) so they can review it for you. You will pay for the mechanic and I will also get a copy of the report - a perk for driving back and forth. I do not have such a report, I don't know what may be bad that I haven't mentioned - it's a 45+ year old car so something's got to give. I can say I have driven it pretty good distances (2 hours straight) in hot and cold weather including traffic without fail or overheat. The only issue I had was when the alternator belts (yes, two belts) went and the battery died on me. Those were replaced and the alternator charges normally (according to my DMM).

      By the way, the tires are pretty much new (maybe 2,500 miles on them) and the tie rods have been replaced. Yes, it does have a spare tire and the original tire jack kit. No rust on the truck lid (a common problem).

      Please see video on YouTube (http://youtu.be/9XTopyw1KZk) and photos and let me know if you have any questions.

      If you want to ship the vehicle, I'm happy to be there for the driver but I can't arrange or pay for shipping for you. I'm nearby Atlanta and off of a major truck route from Florida to the north (I-75) so I'd imagine it wouldn't been all that hard to get the car shipped east of the Mississippi. It was about $375 for me to ship it from Iowa to Georgia after I bought it, but I can't guarantee that price, especially with diesel costs these days.

      Viewings will be scheduled and at a location convenient to me, not where the car is stored for security. Thank you for your interest.
