Description

Lot #329 - Vehicle has been finished with dark green paint and a gray interior, as many cars of that era were produced. The exterior is simple with little trim and chrome. The exterior retains its original push-button door latches, hood ornament and spare tire carrier, which is a signature design for the Continental series. The interior has been redone to replicate the original look with a new headliner, carpet and door panels. The seats are finished with gray leather trim and gray cloth inserts to reflect the era of the car. The dash and gauges have been redone and show as well as its first days on the showroom floor. The engine is an upgraded and newly rebuilt 351 Windsor with an HDI electronic distributor, 12-volt electrical system and electric cooling fan, and runs a rebuilt C4 automatic transmission. This Lincoln also has added power steering and upgraded power windows. New Coker classic whitewall tires have been installed to complete the original classic look.
