This particular Mark IV is an amazing survivor. Just 955 of these 4-door cars were created. It is completed in an unusual manufacturing facility color of Burnished Gold Metallic with a complimentary Glacier White repainted top. The body is directly, the paint was redone years ago and also as you can see in the pictures, the finish still looks great! The exterior chrome and stainless trim including the Continental Mark II wheel covers are in excellent problem and also radiate perfectly. The Mark IV inside is remarkable to see. This car is wonderfully draped in a color-coordinated, specially-loomed Lincoln material. The pole position and all four door panels are in fantastic problem. The cars and truck is equipped with a period FOMOCO vehicle driver’s seat belt. Sadly there is some discoloration on the back seat material as well as the foam underneath really feels breakable. The headliner is in nice problem as well as the carpeting looks terrific – I think it has actually been changed by a previous proprietor.
All the politeness lights inside the car work penalty. The trunk remains in good shape with some common use and also has what seems the original extra tire and jack. The control panel is airplane, or possibly spacecraft influenced with a distinctive four-spoke wheel as well as an array of dials and also gauges that are set up and finished like nothing else. Also the way the Community & Country radio is incorporated right into the control panel is distinct. The radio as well as power antenna work penalty. The inside rear sight mirror has a day/night setup. Also the electronic head-lamp dimmer jobs! Obviously this Lincoln has power steering, power brakes, power front seat, power windows – consisting of a back “breezeway” window that can be electrically decreased by the driver. All the power windows, consisting of the front wind-wing home windows run well. The pole position has a 6-way power change that functions fine. The keyword below is “power”!
Under the hood is Lincoln’s first-rate 430 cubic inch V-8 with a 4-barrel carburetor. It was ranked at 375 horse power and the 490 lb. It is furnished with a “Turbo-Drive” totally automatic 3-speed transmission. The vehicle launches and also idles perfectly. The transmission moves smoothly readily and also the engine powers the cars and truck quickly later on. Power-assisted steering has a nice feeling but still enables the “one-finger” strategy to turning – when proper. The power-assisted brakes are operating generally. You can feel that this auto was crafted for deluxe and also comfort and longs to be driven on the open road! This car is 57 years of ages so there are a couple of points that aren’t best. I do not desire there to be any disappointments with the cars and truck so please reviewed over this thoroughly. Ask any kind of concerns prior to bidding and completion of the public auction. There are a few small damages in the roof simply over the rear window.
This Mark IV is not equipped with air conditioning. Odometer functions periodically, so real gas mileage unknown. Mufflers are “glass-pack” type – mounted by previous owner. There is a split in the lens that covers the speedometer. There is an upright scratch in the middle of the rear glass home window. There are different small nicks and also scrapes in the paint yet generally the painted finish is really presentable. The mechanical fuel pump was replaced by an electric device by a previous owner. Not a negative thing – you just need to ensure it is activated with a handle set up on the lower dash. There is some rust from years earlier in the bottom-rear of each front wheel well. In my viewpoint it does not hinder the beauty of this Lincoln neither its efficiency. The driver’s outside back view mirror has some clouding. The chrome on the side of the trunk lid has some aging in areas and also there is a damage in the trim on the motorist’s side edge. There is some small pitting in the chrome outside door manages- especially the chauffeur’s manage. This is an uncommon opportunity to have a little that time when luxury automobiles were truly special and also made a declaration regarding their owners. This Mark IV is a gorgeous example that you can delight in with satisfaction as well as show to others.
