This Lincoln Continental MKIV could quite possibly be the very best example in the World. This is a very rare 'Lipstick Edition' and is in original, unrestored condition. The car has only covered 11500 miles from new having spent 30 years in a Texas museum. We are told only 1254 'Lipstick Editions' were every built and this is the believed to be the only example in the UK and there are said to be around 50 left worldwide. This is a multi-show winning car and several trophies and silverware accompany the comprehensive history and magazine features. The American Auto Club UK valued the car in May 2013 at £40,000 and there is documentation from the Club to say the car won 'Best in Show' at the AACUK Spring Nationals and they confirm the car spent most of its time in the USA on display in museums, hence the extraordinary low mileage.
This car was supplied new by Villers Motor Sales Inc in Vienna, West Virginia. It was manufactured on the 25th March 1976, five days ahead of schedule. The Lincoln has a superb specification and was ordered with White custom Landau vinyl roof, power moon roof, White paint stripe, C-6 automatic transmission, Traction-Lok differential, Headlamp Convenience Group, radial white wall tyres, speed control, tilt steering column, reclining passenger seat, White premium body moulding, rear window electric defroster, AM/FM/Quad 8 track stereo, interval wipers, Luxury Group, Security Lock and Appearance Protection Group, right hand remote control mirror, power lock and aluminium wheels.
Since 2012 the Lincoln has covered 2000 faultless miles and is well known in Classic Car Club circles. The Lincoln was present on the Classic American Club stand at the NEC Classic Motor Show in 2013 and is not only known for its outstanding condition but provenance. The high level of trophies with the car clearly indicates what a special car this is. The bodywork is quite simply outstanding, as is the paintwork, chrome, roof and wonderful original upholstery. The carpets are still as brand new, the leather trim beautiful and the headlining, door cards and dashboard first class. The engine bay is immaculate, as is the boot, wheels and underside.
The Lincoln is fantastic to drive with an impressive powerful 7.5 litre V8 engine that does not need to work hard. The car has power, performance and the engine sounds like new. The car has driven to us from South Yorkshire and has a current MOT test with no advisories. Recent expenditure includes new tyres, new rear shock absorbers and exhaust system at a cost of £792 with fitting. The Lincoln is a first class show winner and the condition mechanically is equal to the stunning cosmetic appearance. A true unique collectors piece in prisitne condition.
