This 1969 Lincoln Continental has been given the right investments in original-style features and subtle upgrades. So it looks correct, runs strong, and is loaded with great features like cold A/C. And you can get it all for a terrific price.
Back when new, these Continentals were the way to announce you were the big shot. The extra-long sedan profile and iconic suicide doors were part of one of the most artful packages for the road ever created. That's why it's so important to have one continuing to look so crisp today. This one is covered its original shade of Dark Aqua Metallic paint, and it was given a quality respray later in life to retain it's the subtle and sophisticated aura. Plus, the premium vinyl top has the regal appearance you want on this upper-class classic. And this feeling continues on the brightwork. The big bumpers, full-length trim, and turbine-style wheel covers with wide whitewalls all show why this Continental is still for big shots today.
The factory-correct aqua interior harmonizes with the exterior color. The upholstery has a true vintage elegance with its intricate pattern and button-top presentation, and the door panels are even done to match. In fact, the carpeting, dash, headliner, and the steering wheel are well-coordinated with this, too. There's even a nice extra vintage touch with the wood-like trim. Buying a Lincoln meant all the best features, and that includes power front seat, power locks, fold-down armrests, and power windows. There have also been the right upgrades to keep this a terrific modern cruiser. There's air condition blowing cold with modern R134a refrigerant, and the radio has been upgraded to an AM/FM /CD stereo with USB input and Bluetooth. And the auxiliary gauge trio helps you keep a close eye on what's going on under the hood.
The sporty forward-hinge hood gives a great view of the large V8. This was the final year for this iconic generation, and the only full model year to receive the 460 cubic-inch big block engine. This looks correct right down to the decals, and even the date codes are in-line, and so this special powerhouse is also believed to be original to the car. There's plenty of power thanks to the huge displacement and a four-barrel carburetor. The newer stainless 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 cruiser. The long wheelbase helps with the effortlessly smooth ride. Power steering, modern tread behind the classic whitewalls, and power brakes with discs up front keep this a true luxury driving machine.
This Continental is a model of classic elegance that still impresses today. So at a price like this, you know you need to hurry on this deal. Call today!!!
