The Continental is a luxury car produced by Lincoln starting back in 1939 with the introduction of the Zephyr convertible. The 3rd generation Continental was produced form 1958 1960 and marked a significant body design to separate itself from the Mercury line to enable Lincoln to outdo Cadillac. With an overall length of 227 inches the 3rd generation Continentals were the longest mass produced vehicle ever sold in the U.S with the exception of the very rare 34-37 Cadillac V16 convertibles. For 1959 the Mark IV saw minor changes with the restyled grill that enabled the headlights cluster to be integrated into the egg crate grille. Standard equipment is the 430 ci V8 mated to a 3 speed Turbo-Drive automatic transmission. This particular example was finished in a gorgeous Copper Poly paint with a Glacier White vinyl interior and top. It is nicely optioned with 6-way power seats, power locks, power vent windows, a heater & defroster, a locking gas cap, rocker panel moldings, a Travel Tuner AM radio with dual speakers and white sidewall tires. It is a 4 owner car with 97,846 original miles and everything is 100% original with no restoration work of any kind having been done. It was just serviced and tuned up. The tires and battery were changed not long ago so she is in need of nothing but a new home. Based on its present condition and factoring in the flaws you will find in the paint, interior and trim work we would classify this as # 3 vehicle and as such would appraise it at $48,700. We are serious about finding it a new home and have priced it accordingly. If you have been looking for one of these you know what you have just found so you best contact us before it is too late!
