1967 Lincoln Continental Convertible with a 462 Police Interceptor Engine. Clean title. Mileage show 15k (actual mileage is probably around 120-125k). This is the last year they made the Continental Convertible and it has the biggest motor of all the years. This one has power wing windows which is a rare feature.
Top does not operate correctly as the z-bar is broken. All top motors work otherwise. Top vinyl is shot. Weather stripping is shot. Trunk and tonneau cover motors work and operate correctly.
The leather is shot, split in several areas. Carpet is falling apart in some areas. Dashboard is cracked at vent. Rearview mirror has come off the window and is broken. All the electric windows work, including the wing windows. Headlight switch malfunctions. The original radio works but the 8track player function does not. Power antenna works.
Rust spots and oxidized paint in various areas. There's damage to right rear quarter panel. See photos for specifics.
The engine will turn over and can be started but will not run well as it over heats, I believe this is because the water pump failed. The fuel pump is not stock. Speedometer cable is broken. Cruise control bellows is broken. The AC is not working. It's missing a radiator shroud and the stock fan was replaced with an electric fan. The exhaust is not stock.
I am the third owner. I've owned the car for about twenty years. I've put a new transmission in the car and replaced the top once. I did have an alarm and car stereo installed in the early two-thousands, the alarm is wired to the top so it can be lowered remotely. Both the stereo and alarm have since been disconnected. The vacuum locks were removed and replaced with solenoid locks (also wired to the alarm). The car was in an accident in 2006, the front grill, bumper, headlights, body panels, and radiator were rebuilt and/or replaced. The body shop did a cheap job on the paint and I believe they clogged up the drainage holes which is causing much of the rust seen on the car now.
I have several years worth of receipts, as well as a box of extra parts, and a shop manual.
Over the last two years I've spent about 7k on restoration and maintenance. I had all the window and top electricals fixed, the breaks bled and checked, new white wall tires put on, and an electrical fan put on the radiator. The water pump failed about two months ago and I've since had the car under a cover in my driveway. I love this car but don't have the time needed to put into it's restoration. It is for sale, AS IS, at $6,700.00 obo.
