This 1966 Continental coupe is an actual low mileage. un-restored. garage kept strong #3 - low #2 survivor.    This is a CA-spec car that spent most of its life in the Bay Area before coming to Central Texas as the first owner aged out.   As. nbsp;such it has an old-man garage scrape on the LF fender as shown in the pics.  I acquired it from the second owner. who has it shipped out here as a hobby car.   Unfortunately the shipper put the second bit of damage on the lower LR fender as shown in the pics.
It was pulled from several years of sitting earlier this year and gone thru to so as to make it ready for the road.   Some of the things gone thru. adjusted. repaired or replaced include:
-4 new tires
-center link
-brakes brought up to '67 specs with a dual master cylinder. proportioning valve. metering valve. and wheel cylinders
-rebuilt correct 3 port fuel pump
-rebuilt carb
-R12 charged A/C
-fuel tank float
-new timing set (no risk of sheading nylon gear teeth)
-rebuilt water pump
-resealed PS pump
-new shocks
There's probably a few other minor things done to bring it out of it's cocoon that I can't remember now.  
The interior on the car is pretty spectacular.   The second owner smartly had the front seat re-foamed to prevent sagging and has allowed the original Ivy Gold leather to remain undamaged. showing a very beautiful gentle patina.   The same goes for the carpets. door panels and dash.   All are in 50 year old new condition.   It was clearly not a smoker's car.
In the trunk are the factory floor mats. jack. a Fortune magazine from the fall of '65 introducing the new Coupe model for '66  and a set of dealer accessory luggage that was sold with the car in San Francisco (I'm told the luggage is noted on the original sales invoice. but I've been unable to obtain a copy as of yet)
The underside is rust-free and leak free. with the original red-oxide showing in several places.
The only thing the car needs. in typical Lincoln fashion. is some work on the exhaust manifolds.   Ports  4 & 8 both are a bit noisy. not befitting the silence a Lincoln owner would expect.   The good news it that the manifolds themselves are not cracked and would benefit from modern gaskets.
Please be sure to read payment terms before bidding.
