The exterior on this car is straight as an arrow and totally solid. The paint on the car is finished in gorgeous original color of Huron Blue. After looking the car over we believe this is an original paint car. It was just carefully cut and buffed to a nice shine and shows very well! There are assorted chips on the front of the car from its road-tripping uses. The front and rear cowls show fading from the sun but have not been repainted. These cars are becoming harder and harder to find in their untouched form and we thought best to leave this one as so. This car is a totally solid, rust free car, and obviously never saw snow or salt. The underside of the rockers, quarters, fenders, and floor boards are solid as a rock, and the wheel wells look so clean, just the way a California car should. All correct trim and emblems are present and in great shape. The chrome does show some pitting from its just under 68k miles of use. The vinyl top is in nice shape with no apparent rips or tears. I like the look and think it gives the car a clean, classy look. All of the glass is original and the windshield is crack-free.
The car rides on four new 15" Hankook whitewall tires and still retains its correct hubcaps which gives the car a very nice look.
The interior is all original and in very good condition. The original leather seats are extremely soft and supple and look like new. Door panels Dash, and carpet are all original and in perfect condition. The odometer currently shows only 67700mi, which is stated to be Actual miles by the Arizona title. The wood inlayed steering wheel is in excellent condition and is usually a good indicator of use and miles driven. The seats are in excellent condition with almost no ware- only some slight creasing on the driver's bolster. Under the hood is spotless and the proper decals look like new. Power windows, locks, seat, antenna, wipers, and defog work correctly. The climate control is working correctly and the A/C blows ICE COLD. Rear quarter windows as well as power seat switch are currently inoperable.
The trunk interior is like new condition and has all of the original cardboard and original carpeting which looks very nice. The space saver spare is also still aboard as well as the jack and all original tools.
Mechanically, this Lincoln runs GREAT! This car features the 460ci V8. This car always starts right up and shifts so smooth it is difficult to feel the transition between gears. Under the hood is very clean and all original.The car tracks straight and rides and drives just like a new Lincoln should!
The car includes two sets of original keys, spare tire, jacking equipment, and the original manuals.
All in all, this is one of the coolest and most original Lincoln's I have ever owned. It has been professionally maintained and truly loved by its previous owner. These late 60's era vehicles are becoming more and more collectible as the older ones disappear into collections, especially well maintained,low mileage, cars like this.
This Mark III is the kind of condition you can enjoy everyday or save it as an investment because with the kind of condition it is and its classic body lines, it is now and will forever be a classic. This car has a clean Arizona Title. Any further questions please call Jon at 480-703-2337. The car is located in Sunny Tempe, AZ!
