$69,900 (OBO)

Vehicle Description

For sale in Punta Gorda, Florida is this award winning Bolero Red 1959 Lincoln Continental Mark IV Convertible Factory Brochure Model. By 1959 Lincoln was producing a similarly-styled car to what designers Elwood Engel and John Najjar debuted in 1958. Although the '59 model was somewhat "toned-down" compared to the previous year this car is was still over-the-top by 1959 standards. One look at those long sleek fenders, massive front grill, and huge chrome bumpers make you fall in love with this classic styling. Lincoln was producing some beautiful cars in the 1950's but this bold yet luxurious styling really stood out even among the ultra-luxury segment and the distinguished buyers were treated to a plethora of incredible features for the day. The list of these goodies include power Treadle-vac braking, power steering, power windows, power vent windows, power rear "Breezeway" window, (7 power windows in all) power adjustable front seat, Town and Country radio (internally converted to AM/FM stereo), remote mirror adjustment and rear courtesy lights. This vehicle is a true survivor having only traveled less than 51,000 miles since new. A scant 1,703 of these were made in 2-doors back in '59 and had a list price of $7,056 when new or roughly $56,000 in today's money. This well preserved original Luxury machine is fully restored with leather finished in black. Check out that rear seat that easily has room for 4 people and the trunk which has more space than some New York apartments. In addition to a lifetime of care this car has had recent work done to make it extremely reliable including a concealed parade fan, new spark plugs, wires, brakes, brake lines, starter, water pump, battery, battery cables, belts, hoses, tires, carburetor, and more! A perfect parade car, or just for showing off. Located in Punta Gorda, Florida this always garaged 1959 Lincoln Continental can be seen most any time.

Model History 

The 1959 Lincoln Continental was the largest unit-construction (Unibody) car ever built, and was constructed alongside the Ford “Squarebird” Thunderbird at a brand new Wixom, Michigan plant. This car is so rare as to be highly collectible. When is the last time that you saw one? The 1959 Mark IV Continental convertible is, in fact, a Milestone car. This car weighs over 2 ½ tons and was considered a massive, heavy, comfortable, ultra-luxury car when new – but weighs no more than many large SUV’s of the current day. The engine was the most powerful of its day. The all-new, massive and heavy 430 cubic inch V8 engine produced 350 hp.
