1977 Lincoln Continental Town Car walk around and cold start.
Just a short video here of my 1977 Lincoln Continental Town Car I traded for the other day. I traded off my 1999 Lincoln Town Car Executive Series and ended up with this.... She's not perfect by any means, but that's okay with me because I plan to drive it and enjoy it (when I can afford gas). It's got the 460 7.5L with 74,XXX miles. The guy I traded said he got it from an elderly man that could no longer drive it and it had been sitting outside under his carport for a number of years. And with a new battery and voltage regulator it came back to life.... And then I had to have it!
SOLD : 1978 Lincoln Continental Town Car (low miles)
2011-04-29 : SOLD : 1978 Lincoln Continental Town Car with 12,904 miles.
This car is still For Sale because the tow truck, that was transporting the
car, broke down. The car never arrived at the auction. Backstory : The
original owners of this car died together in 1991 in a collision with an
articulated (semi) truck. Stories like that make me wonder whether it's
worth taking care of anything, but I still do. The car passed to their son,
who sold the car to me in 2004.

Well, since I painted it, it has been on the road 6 years, we wanted to get
rid of the low compression 460 and used a 1972 460 which we built to 10:5
to 1 compression, used a performance intake also, mild cam upgrade, it is
probably putting out about 400 horsepower. We also
repainted the front fenders to get rid of small nicks from being on the
road. Stripped front fenders to bare metal, and repainted with 10 coats

BARN FIND 1959 Lincoln Continental MKIV, Garage Find, Survivor
Following up on a 1959 Lincoln Continental from the owner of a 1963 Olds 98
convertible "survivor" I recently acquired. This car was actually parked in
1993, so it's been sitting under a cover in the solitude of a residential
garage for almost 20 years...

Sorry for the wind noise and shaky camera. The camera was on loan, the wind
was gusting and I didn't want to trip while taking the video.
