A rare triple black 1968 Lincoln Continental Coupe! A true survivor car. Nearly 100% original, with believed to be original mileage (odometer reads just under 81,000 miles). Lincoln built just 9,415 two door coupes compared to 29,719 four door sedans. This car has 100% original paint, and 100% original interior. The seats have normal wear for a 50 year old car, but are extremely comfortable and clean. All glass except for the windshield is original to the car. The motor has never been rebuilt and runs absolutely perfect! I've spent over $13,000 in the past 15 months on a completely new suspension, exhaust, breaks, carburetor rebuild, AC compressor (blows cold!) and complete mechanical inspection of every moving part. Everything works except the radio and clock. Power everything! Power seats, power windows, and it all works! Lots of low points in the paint, chips, and cracks. This is what one would expect from a totally original untouched car from 1968. The car runs like a dream, I have put 3,000 miles in the past year and is one of the most comfortable cars I have ever driven. There is some minor surface ruts on the passenger door hinges, the underneath is solid with no issues. This is what I call, the perfect driver survivor car. It is virtually a time capsule and I did consider a repaint, but a car is only original once!
