Car description

Yes, you are reading this correctly... This 1963 Lincoln Continental sedan has averaged far less than 500 miles annually over its lifetime. In fact, the deeper you dig on this hardtop, you're going to find plenty of surviving elements like the paint, interior, and the original 430 V8. So it's amazing you can get such a nicely preserved icon for such an affordable price.Back when new, these Continentals were the way to announce you were the big shot. The extra-long hood, hardtop sedan profile, and iconic suicide doors were part of one of the most artful packages for the road ever created. That's why the car is still so imposing today. But what's really impressive is that this Lincoln retains nearly 80% of its original Ermine White paint even long after it has passed the half-century mark. It tells you that the owners have been extra careful preserving this gem. And you can see it in the details where the slab sides give way to chrome accent lines that run the length of the car. The rest of the brightwork is just as well preserved with those big bumpers, wide horizontal grille, and original slotted hubcaps all shining like mirrors. That's why this Continental is still for big shots today.The two-tone black and white leather give this interior the feeling like you're arriving in a tuxedo. Just like the exterior, this is believed to be mostly original, which makes this an amazing survivor. And while some materials do show a little age, the ultra-low mileage means there was little time to wear anything out. You get the original wood and chrome premium steering wheel that matches so nicely with the other accents around the car. And beyond that is the full gauge package that is a true work of art. Buying a Lincoln meant all the best features, and this survivor still presents those so nicely today. It includes power seats, power locks, and the factory AM radio. And we know you'll love using the power windows to take down all the glass without ever having to leave the driver's seat. And since the air conditioning had its vacuum controls recently serviced and is still blowing cold, you can do it all year long! The sporty clamshell hood gives a great view of the large 430 cubic-inch MEL V8. On a car this nicely preserved so far, you'll be quite happy to know it is the original powerplant. And everyone knows this is a true survivor with the big black air cleaner on top signaling that you are keeping this cool cruiser quite original. There's plenty of power, and the dual exhaust even lets out a muscular howl when you really want to get moving. But this Lincoln will never betray its easy-going luxurious nature. The three-speed automatic transmission makes for a fantastic highway cruiser. The suspension soaks up bumps without rattling the body, and thanks to that long wheelbase, the ride is effortlessly smooth. Power brakes with discs up front, new tires, and power steering make this a true go-anywhere luxury driving machine.This Lincoln has been respected from day one, which makes for a stellar icon today. It's now looking for a new caretaker to carry the torch. Will it be you? Call today!!!
