Description for Lincoln Continental 1964

Gorgeous 1964 Lincoln Continental 4 Door Hardtop

Two Owner Car/Exceptionally Maintained

They are only original once is the most appropriate description of this car. The original owner parked the car in 1988 with 69,200 miles on the odometer when she was 76 years old. In 2011 the second owner bought the Lincoln and today it has 82,428 miles. This rust free car has been stored in a garage its entire life. This car has undergone a considerable mechanical restoration. The goal was to create a super reliable grand touring car capable of covering long distances without tiring the driver and three passengers, ll the while carrying a considerable amount of luggage in style. This car runs and drives exceptionally well and is in very good condition

Options: VIN# 4Y82N406254

Engine & Transmission: The mechanics on this Lincoln are very well sorted. The automatic transmission shifts smoothly and the exceptionally nice sounding 430 CI V-8 engine under the hood runs strong and delivers power whenever you want it. Power steering, ower brakes, old A/C. The current owner updated everything that could have created a problem (even though in most cases the present function was fine) or made the driving experience less than desirable.The steering gear box, he power steering pump and the wheel bearings were replaced.The front suspension joints were replaced. The sway bar bushings, he brake lines and brakes were replaced including the Wheel and Master cylinders. It has new shocks, ncluding rear air shocks to support all the weight that could be put in the trunk and maintain the unloaded ride stance. An additional leaf in the rear springs was added when they were re-bushed.With the new shocks and stiffened rear springs the car no longer sways and wallows around corners or has a delayed turn in response.It drives straight with no dead spot or slop in the steering and it stops as one would expect with a new braking system. The transmission was removed and serviced, he fly wheel (missing a tooth) the starter and starter solenoid were replaced as was the water pump, adiator, oses, nd fan belt.The alternator was rebuilt to 125 amps in preparation for a possible high output sound system. Updated carburetor with a new electric choke carburetor (original in a box). The fuel pump was replaced, s was the coil, park plug wires etc. The exhaustsystem was completely redone.The air-conditioning system was updated and many components were replaced. It has new 2" white wall radials.The result is that the car starts on the first crank and runs strong and silent. There is a binder with complete records for service done over the years. These are wonderful cars with lots of options and it is great to see an example that has been completely gone through and sorted by the meticulous owner. One of the best running examples on the market today.

Body: The body panels are all straight. All original glass and chrome are in great shape. The car is free of any rust or corrosion. The paint is great and shows exceptionally well, here are three small blemishes on the center of the trunk lid (see photos) but the rest of the car is very nice. Since the paint is mostly original the owner elected not repaint the car. This car has been babied and stored in a private heated garage. The car presents very well. The exterior color is very nice and shows the great lines of the car.

Interior: The interior of this car is unrestored original and is like a time capsule, tried to capture this in the photos but to really understand how nice this car is you need to sit in it and smell the interior. Even the heal pad in the carpet under the accelerator is not worn (original carpet is mint). The same is true for the seating surfaces and the rest of the interior. All mechanical components and gauges work as new. Power windows, ower seats, uto headlight diming, oor locks, lectric antenna, ruise control and factory radio. The interior is like being in your home living room while the car floats down the road. Instrument cluster looks like it just rolled off the showroom floor. The original trunk area is very nice as well as the spare tire compartment. The new owner will enjoy driving this car.

Documentation:A hard bound mileage book came with the car that documents most of the cars history and maintenance details of tune ups, rips made etc. On the dash is a plaque with the original owners name (Barbara). In the back of the mileage book is her death certificate. There are two large folders of maintenance records of work done on the car (see photos).


This is awonderful example of an American Car Icon. It is in great condition and perfect for cruising or taking to car shows. Some might say that the current owner went overboard on his spending to make this car nice but the best way to enjoy a classic car is to buy one that has been extremely well maintained and documented. If you are looking for a Lincoln this car is worth taking a look at.
