1976 Lincoln Continental Town Coupé: The Fleet is In

1976 Lincoln ContinentalThis is class circa the disco years. Not Tony Manero class – more like Rocky’s mobster boss or Ted Baxter. Twenty-two feet of deliciously tacky yellow and tan. I loved and hated these cars – so cushy and quiet and floaty, but so ponderous and grotesquely overwrought.

Sometimes

it’s not that hard to say goodbye.

Adios, INContinental.  I will miss your giant V8, your really shitty gas mileage and the faux mobster presence.  And the flippy lights.

Enjoy auto Valhalla.  Say hi to the Merc and the Fury.

Barrett Jackson 2014: The Premiere

What a difference a garage and some TLC makes.  Instead of a carcass, you get a grand dame.
1957 Lincoln PremiereLot No. 730

Here is a fantastic find, a 1957 Lincoln Premier [sic.] convertible. This is a true hidden garage find from right here in Glendale, AZ. It was parked over 20 years ago in a garage. It has been gone through mechanically. It is currently in excellent running and driving condition with brand new white wall tires. It has its original leather interior. It is powered by the 368/300hp engine with an automatic. This car is very rare as it is one of only 3,676 produced. An amazing 1950s classic available to the public for the first time in over 40 years.
