Classic Car Overview

13,701 actual miles. Excellent original survivor. Owned by a farmer that put only a couple miles on it at a time. He eventually went into an assisted living home and sold the car to someone else living in assisted living. Needless to say he didnt drive it much either. EXTERIOR: Its as long as a football field and you can look down both sides and there is not a dent, damage or rust. The Dove Gray paint is believed to be all original and it shows really well, especially for a survivor car. Of course if you look for flaws there are some minor ones. The factory white pinstripe is not polished off. The Valino padded top is very nice but pulled away slightly from the rear trim. Overall the chrome and trim is straight and shiny. The Michelin tires were replaced. The jambs are clean, weatherstrips are still soft. Exterior features include the opera windows, hideaway lights with auto dimmer, outside thermometer, intermittent wipers, illuminated entry, heated mirror and premium side moldings. INTERIOR: A living room on wheels! Big poofy leather upholstery is very comfortable. Every thing is in excellent shape. The leather, door panels and carpet look great. All the trim, bezels, knobs, vents are excellent. The headliner and visors are excellent. Features include lighted vanity mirrors, full power accessories including driver and passenger seats, tilt wheel, FM stereo, defroster group, light group and more. The owners manual is in the glovebox. ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The motor is a smooth running 400. It looks just like it did at the factory. It still has 1979 dated sparkplug wires. The stickers and factory markings are still showing. The duct work all still attached to the air cleaner assembly. The smog equipment is hooked up. It has power steering, power brakes and air conditioning. TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Giant trunk opens with the power trunk release. It has the wall to wall gray carpet liner in excellent shape. The spare tire has never been used. The jack assembly is still in place. The trunk light works. There are still ink stamps from the factory. UNDERSIDE: Very well preserved original under this car. The exhaust has twin catalytic converters, new muffler and tail pipe. The chassis components look to be proper and mostly original. Looking up at the motor its clean, fuel pump and lower radiator hose have been replaced. It has a C-6 heavy duty automatic transmission. It has disc brakes in front. This is the last of the Lincoln land yachts. They will never make cars like this again. Here is a chance to own one of the most original survivors left. I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the cars condition in detail. These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded and you will be given a 1 year membership. 815 385 3644 9-5 central Sales@volocars.com Answered ASAP Climate control Power seats Power antenna Power windows Power trunk Power locks Cruise control Heated mirrors Rear defrost Padded top Opera windows Tilt wheel Auto headlamp dim Defroster group Illuminated entry
