Vehicle Description

This is a stunningly authentic, truly immaculate condition Lincoln Continental Mark V with a genuine 25,000 miles. It is the top of the line with the 460ci engine, duel electric door windows with electric 1/4 glass, all feature options and tow bar. The car is 100% original in all aspects, right down to the factory hand-painted pin-striping and is a rare and wonderful find. Finished in Light Jade metallic (7Y) with Jade Media Velour (CR) upholstery. This is a genuine 2 owner car that spent most of its life in the Midwest with the last 10 years in the hands of a collector so rarely used in the snow. As the first owner, it was "grand dad's" pride and joy until he passed away. It is now showing a very modest 25,500 miles. The car has been recently gone over by a local work-shop and everything is in good operating condition. The engine runs smooth and powerful. Brakes are good and the car stops sure. All features and functions work well with the heater hot and A/C ice cold (compressor a little noisy but otherwise ok). All windows, mirrors, radio, wipers, exterior and interior lights work as they should. The headlight covers work every time! The body is rust free and the underside is relatively clean. The whole car is very straight, accident free and has never had any body repair. This is evidenced by the original factory stickers and markings on the inside edges and under the hood and trunk. The paint is completely factory original and looks fantastic. There are minor chips on the headlight covers and there is the sign of very light crazing on the hood but nothing else - not even a ding! It is very shiny, consistent and simply looks great from close and afar. The original vinyl top is excellent. All rubber, glass and trim fixtures are in wonderful condition without any signs of fading, marks or scratches. The interior is absolutely fantastic! This is the hall mark of this Continental and makes the car look like she is only a couple of years old - without exaggeration. Finished in a light Jade velour, she looks incredibly sharp. The dash is prefect without any sun-fading or cracking. All the faux wood and chrome finishings are like new. The dash cluster is like new. In fact the whole dash looks like new! The steering wheel without scratches or cracks. The fabric seats are in simply amazing presentation and condition, totally clean and without even a thread pulled. Carpets, door panels, handles, switches, knobs and every little item is virtually perfect. The headliner is indeed perfect. The interior is without doubt a 9.999999 out of 10. Just stunning. The car all round is very original in all respects. Sporting 1" whitewalls on original rims.
