This is one of the most classic automobiles in the history of cars. The 1964 Lincoln came with the suicide doors, making it really easy for those in the back seat to get out of the car. Locally purchased at Downtown Lincoln Mercury in Dallas in 1964, the same family has owned it ever since.
It appears the car has had a repaint to it's original color. The body is straight and solid. The brightwork has very few flaws. There are a few dents in the stainless, but for an original 49 year old car, it's quite good. The family decided to sell the car and asked that we get it running. We flushed the radiator, dropped and cleaned the gas tank, rebuilt the carburetor, and did a complete tune up. The Lincoln runs great now.
The original Lincoln hub caps are in good condition all around. As for the interior of the vehicle, there are signs of wear and tear from over the years. The seats have are definately showing their age, but are still just as comfortable as before. The new owner will definately need to do some restoring.
Even though the car is showing it's age, structurally it appears to be very solid. Having been a Dallas car all of its life, the body looks to be rust free and all in all this is a very good base for a nice restoration. The dash and auxiliary gauges are still working but the speedometer is currently out of order. The AC in the car is not currently working.
The 96,410 miles are correct. The car has been in storage for many years. The car does still sport the factory radio. The windows on both passengers and drivers side are not working as well. The undersides of the doors are solid.
The engine is a factory 430 ci V8 backed up by a Turbo-Drive automatic transmission. So, whether just cruising around town or passing on the highway, this car means busines. The car is completely stock and has all records of regular maintenance. The convertible top is functioning properly. Our photographer took these shots before we replaced the passenger side Continental emblem . It has been installed.
We have a partial build sheet. The undercarriage is solid. There appears to be little or no rust.
