The paint and body are in excellent condition. 100's of professional hours were spent disassembling this Lincoln, removing the doors, hood, decklid, and preparing the car for its black base/clearcoat finish. Any rust was cut out and replaced with steel as you can see in some of the included restoration photos. Over $35,000 was spent on the paint, body, and trim restoration work alone. Pro Motorsports out of Edmond, Oklahoma is responsible for this work performed.
Look at how straight the body panels are and how they line up. Any imperfections on this car are minor. The wheels were fitted with updated wide whitewall radial tires all around. Again, many thousands of dollars were spent on the chrome restoration alone with verifying receipts. The brightwork was sent off to be prepared and re-chromed to show quality. The brigthwork is simply excellent front to back. Open the doors to classic luxury and good looks. This original upholstery is amazing. Factory black leather inserts accompany the white leather upholstery. Although the leather is showing some age, it underwent an extensive professional restoration. Over $3,000 was spent to clean, condition, and re-stitch the leather. There is a beautiful patina to it.
The dash and instruments are in great shape. A custom center console has been incorporated along with an updated AM/FM CD stereo. The original AM radio was retained along with the original gauges. Slide the shifter into "D" and go. The transmission was removed and rebuilt during the restoration. The torque converter was replaced as well. The door panels and door undersides are in excellent condition. The suicide opening rear doors are a classic feature of this body style Lincoln. The glass was replaced during the restoration along with all rubber weatherstrip. Again, many thousands spent here, receipts to verify. The power windows are functional throughout. The top assembly was removed and restored as well. Relays were rebuilt and thousands of dollars spent on this assembles restoration. We have receipts for this work as well.

The top seals up well and the glass is in great shape, all replaced during the restoration along with the seals, felts, and weatherstrip. Under the hood is the previously refurbished 430 cubic inch V8. This powerplant was factory-rated at 320 horsepower and is paired with the rebuilt 3-speed automatic transmission. The engine runs strong. You'll notice an Optima yellow top battery has been installed. The coolant hoses were replaced during the restoration as well along with the oil pressure sending unit and various parts as needed. The firewall, inner fenders, and core support retain their original metal throughout and were worked over & restored when the engine was out of the car.
This is just a stunning car. Much of the work done to this car is carried over to the undercarriage. The suspension shows well front to back. The brake system has been redone as well. The flooring is solid as are the inner fenders. The inner fenders were removed, refinished and powder-coated black during the restoration, an expensive, but long-lasting endeavor. The exhaust system was also replaced during the restoration. The exhaust manifolds are in excellent shape. The gaskets were replaced as well. There has been so much work that has went into this Lincoln.
