I have a 1978 Lincoln Continental Mark V Bill Blass Edition . I purchased this car back the first of the year from the original family who mom purchased the car new in California. The car came out to NC 4 or 5 years ago. The car is showing almost 95k miles on it and is wearing its factory paint accept the where the half top was. They had the half top removed and painted about 3 years ago I was told. The car floats down the road and is amazing car to drive. I found the Factory Build sheet in good shape under the back seat.
The outside of the car looks great from 10 ft away. When you get up close you see the imperfections in the paint. Could use a good polish and the paint does show some age and has nicks in the paint (see pics) along with one scratch on right rear quarter (see pic) which is just broke the paint. No body damage that i have noticed. The right front market light has a crack and a chip in it (see pic). The head lights open as close as they should. The car gets lots of attention when I drive it. As stated above the half top was removed about 3 years ago and painted the same or close to color.
The inside of the car has done very well for the years. Seats are in great shape i think with the only major spot being on the back seat at the top where the sun has shined on it and started to pull apart at the seams. The headliner is great , carpet looks new still. Dash is very nice. Clock does not work of course. Radio plays but I have not tried the 8 track. Power antenna does not go up and down. Has owners manual and 8 track tape in glove box from when new from dealer. The power windows do work , driver side has to have help sometimes to get back up.
The car has Factory 4 wheel disc brakes. I replaced the front Brake pads , calibers ,rotors and brake hoses. I replaced the rag joint on steering. Has 4 new tires. New fuel pump.Converted A/C to 134a which held a charge most of the summer but is just cool at best now. Cruise works. Has a low beam headlight out. The carb could use a rebuild as it has a dead spot in it once warmed up. Drives down the road fine but when taking off it catches the dead spot. No smoke or rattles in engine.
I have the car for sale locally and may end the auction at anytime. Car is being sold as is with no warranty given or implied.
I accept Cash in person , Bank wire transfer or Postal money order for payment .
I need 25% of amount sold for within 48 hrs and balance within 7 days from end of the auction and picked up within 10 days from end of sale unless talked about before hand.
