Can be Registered in all States a Left hand Drive - I have the Import Approval
I bought this car from Man in Central California - He had bought the Car from a Police Auction - when he bought the car it came with a Brand New Gear Vendor Overdrive Unit (They Cost $3650 US in USA)
He didnt know much about the car but he said it went real well - so he but decided to go ahead and have the Gear Vendor fitted to the the Car as he was intending on Building it for himself to keep - When he was driving it back from the workshop that fitted the Overdrive Unit the Bonnet Flew up and Luckily only bent the Bonnet and Bonnet Hinges and that holted his progress and then Life Changed and he sold it to me
I didnt hear it running when I bought it - as it had a flat battery - but I could see it had a Big 750cfm Double Pumper Holley a Dual Plane Alloy Intake Manifold and had some spacers under the Valve Covers - so I knew someone had spent alot of money on the Engine and its the Original DOVE 460 Motor with DOVE Block & DOVE Heads - which are 365 Horsepower from the Factory - with the Engine Mods and the Gearvendor Overdrive Unit this Car would absolutely Fly !!!
The Car is Mostly all Original Paint - I picked up a Replacement Bonnet and Hinges and its a different Colour to the Rest of the Car - its had a few touch up and Sure theres some Surface Rust here and there and a few minor dents around the place but that it - Its absolutely amazing underneath the car which is as clean as a whistle - Its still got the Original Vinyl Top which is definitely stuffed and needs replacing
All Stainless Mouldings and Chrome on the Bumpers are Bright
and Shiney - Its not in Show Car Condition - but might be good enough for Driver Quality with a Few Touchups and some more Elbow Grease !!!
When I got it home from Importing it from USA - I thru in a New battery and it fired up first try - its had a New Exhuast system fitted with Flowmasters and Rear Mufflers and its Sounds Great and the Car Drives Great with Lots of New Suspenion Parts and Brakes and Nice BF Goodrich Tyres all round !!!
Interior is all there - and is Factory White Leather - it could do with a bit of tidy up in a few places but wont take much to get it looking real nice - Dash Top is Pristine and so is the Hoodlining and Back Seat etc
The Electric Windows and Seats Dont work - and the steering column tilt mechanism is touchy - but I picked up a Replacement Column for it and there is all kinds of parts in the Boot that are part of the car as well as a Ford Maintence Manual and a Aftermarket one as well and Instruction Manual for the Gear Vendor - this Car
hasnt been on the road for about 5 Years so be in no doubt it is definitely a Project Car / Work in Progress
The Last Two Pics are samples of how good this car will look when restored !!!
Its getting impossible to find Mk3 Lincoln Coupes these days anywhere - Let alone a
Rust Free Triple White Car - Will Make a Great Family Cruiser or Sleeper Moonshine Runner
Note - I would also sell this Car Less Motor, Transmission & Overdrive Unit if you are looking for a Good Body to put your own Running Gear in something Different !!!
This Car is on the Gold Coast now - book your pre-purchase inspection before anyone else does !!
