1977 Lincoln ContinentalI am the 2nd owner. The car was bought new in Houston, TX and has remained here. I purchased it in an estate sale about 4 years ago and had well over $8000 in mechanical repairs done, not counting the paint job. The car starts and runs great. I had dual exhausts installed and I requested a nice rich rumble but not loud enough to wake up the neighbors.
A new driver's side power seat mechanism was installed and the seat was recovered. The cover is vinyl with a very close color match to the original leather of the other seats.
I work for a school bus company and one of our buses backed into the driver's side fender with a "light tap" that did fender damage but no frame or alignment damage. The result is a new paint job worthy of this classic. The original paint formula was used and the prep work took the vehicle down to bare metal. There was very little rust but the painter did very detailed work inside the trunk and under the hood during the paint restoration project.
The car is ready for a road trip, cold air, very good tires, and a recent battery. It has about 105K miles...not much for a big Lincoln. The 8 track tape works. Car is driven once or twice a week. Always stays garaged.
I have never seen another one of these 77's running with the hard top. I had the half vinyl removed when it was painted because I love the clean lines and vinyl tops are hard to maintain and notorious rust catchers.
The moon roof has been operating perfectly until a few days ago. Now the motor works but there is a noise like some sprocket teeth are broken in the mechanism....needs work but it is in the closed position and there are no leaks. No fluid leaks underneath. Driving this car is a real pleasure....like floating on a cloud. If viewing on your phone, you may need to open this listing on a desktop computer to see this car in action and go on a virtual test drive.
