1971 Lincoln Mark Series Nice Rust Free description
You are bidding on a rare, very-nice condition, rust-free 1971 Lincoln Continental Mark III. This ALL-ORIGINAL, Fully-Loaded Luxury car is the bomb. She runs great with a big V-8 engine and automatic transmission. Perfect to turn heads while styling around town or to ride along down that long stretch of highway in comfort and luxury. The body is super straight and the paint just glows! Beautiful chrome and stainless! Gorgeous leather interior with beautiful dash. The current owner has only driven this car in nice weather, no snow, salt or even rain and has stored it in a heated garage. She is sooo original and still runs and drives “Like New”. Drive this one home!
We want the car to sell in this auction. It has a low Reserve to protect some of its value. If the Reserve is not met, we will work with the high bidder to make the sale.
The Body is ALL FORD Steel it was born with! No panel replacements or accidents. Super straight body with no major dings or dents but has had a bit of BOTOX to fix a few wrinkles! It has some panel repainting from a few mishaps over its 104,000-mile life, but is solid and rustfree. The paint job does have some minor flaws since it has been driven and enjoyed. Some areas of the paint have minor cracks from the old lacquer paint drying out. Bottom of drivers rear quarter has a small section of filler, might be a dent repair, does not look to be a rust repair. Doors, rockers, floors and trunk are beautiful and solid! The weatherstrippings are original pieces and are in good condition. Windshield and glass are all in good condition. Fabric top is in excellent condition. No rips, tears, fading or peeling but has a few very light minor stains.
The chrome, stainless and brite work pieces are in nice-to-great condition with little some slight pitting and just some minor aging on a few parts. Bumpers are really straight and shiny too! The chrome grille is in good, shiny condition as are most of the moldings and trim on this car. This car has not been restored and its all of the original pieces it was born with.
The Interior is ALL original and in exceptional condition for its age. Dash pad, seats and door panels are in very nice shape! Really no wear on the interior except for some minor wear on drivers seat. Carpeting is in good shape. All the dash gauges (except for fuel), lights, and HVAC controls ALL WORK! All the power options such as the windows and seats work! The steering wheel and headliner are also in great condition. All the windows, doors, locks, hood and trunk operate as they should except for both door windows, which are temperamental. The interior could use a detailing to bring out its full beauty.
The Drivetrain components are the original units it was born with. The engine is a 460ci V8 and it runs beautifully! No smoke or noises and doesn’t even leak! Most of the engine components are original and many of the factory marks, tags and stickers are still present in the engine compartment. The 3-speed automatic transmission operates like it should. No slipping or leaks. She runs great, shifts fine, steers where you want her and has good brakes (just had a new master cylinder installed).
The Undercarriageis in super-solid original condition! The floor pans and frame are original and in GREAT condition! Frame, floor pans, trunk drop offs and rockers are all original and in super solid condition. The exhaust system looks original and in good shape but the resonators are getting bad. The white wall tires are newer Toyo’s Brand and the factory hubcaps are nice and shiny too!
There’s really no paperwork, documentation, or receipts for this vehicle.
Again, windows work when they want to, probably leaks in the system and bad motors. Drivers window goes down but it tries to go up but wont now.
Fuel gauge doesn’t work.
Horn doesn’t work.
Heater core has been bypassed.
Again, this is a classic vehicle that has been driven and enjoyed. It’s not perfect or a museum piece so there may be minor imperfections in the body, brite work and glass. It does have a few rust bubbles and flaws in a few places as noted above and pictured. But overall it’s in really nice condition and it has all of its trim parts.
Anything to note is listed above.
Comes with valid State of New York Registration. New York does not issue titles for classic cars. The current owner never titled it and its still in the previous owner’s name. We do have a Bill of Sale from the previous owner to the current owner. If you need it we could have the current owner title it in Ohio. Odometer currently states 4,103. Comes with 1 set of keys.
Factory spare tire is in the trunk.
