1977 Lincoln Continental Town Car, How much is it worth?
« on: July 03, 2010, 02:13:49 pm »
An acquaintance received a 5K offer for this car from her father's estate.

1977 Lincoln Continental Town Car sedan, less than 10000 original miles, 460 cid, completely original, original paint, dark blue over dark blue "velour" interior, no rust, never driven in winter, always garaged. Was last driven last year and doesn't leak any fluids.

$5k seems low for that condition. It's one of the last big Lincolns, downsizing hit in 1980.

I need something for camping.

Pay a couple of hundred and have it appraised.

Yes.  You need an appraisal even if you don't sell it...for insurance replacement purposes.

I'll buy it for 6K uncertified and take it away with a dealer plate.  Guarranteed no legal issues or lingering liability against the estate.  We're talking London area?

PM me, providing that function still works.

It's as long as an intercity rail car.

Does it have enough rear leg room for BigFootsMom ?

Do you think cars from this era will ever be truly collectable? I mean, the 70's weren't exactly a highpoint in automotive design and engineering were they? ::)
So, why can't the Germans make electronics work in cars?

$5k? Take it and run! Even mint these aren't worth a lot.

less than 10,000 miles.  Best colour too.  I have not received a call.
