Sellers original description:
Absolutely exceptional and great daily driving and completely rust free example of this very rare milestone car (one of only 2,195 built) 1959 Lincoln Continental Mark IV Convertible in beautiful and striking custom painted 'Cherry Blossom Pink' color paint with a gorgeous condition and restored 'Black & White' interior, rare factory option Automatic Headlight Dimmer, fully powered retractable soft top, power operated retracting rear window, chrome window surround moldings, rear fender skirts, Heater & Defroster, original Town & Country Radio, power windows, power vent windows, 4-Way driver's seat, power steering, power brakes, full wheel covers and whitewall tires!
A modestly refaced continuation of the 1958 Continental Mark III and with the Continental officially becoming a Lincoln again for the first time since 1948. A big 430/350HP V8 and a milestone car with all instruments sitting ahead of the driver who faced an upright looking dash with luxurious upholstery and fully powered options including a power retractable top and rear window offering the latest in subtle elegance! Billed as the 'World's Most Admired Car' and advertised as classic beauty, craftsmanship and sheer elegance combined.
Obviously always garaged and well maintained. The floor boards, trunk and all the typical rust-prone areas are solid and rust-free and the car has no signs of any accidents. The car has a decent and very presentable repaint in 'Cherry Blossom Pink' color paint with only very minor imperfections and a nicely restored two tone black and white interior with all its original factory instrumentation including the 'Town & Country' radio which are in quite exceptional and original specification condition throughout. All the chrome is also in absolutely exceptional condition.
The 430 c.i. V8 engine is extremely strong and powerful and sounds absolutely magnificent and this particular car drives absolutely magnificently - must be driven to be believed - does not miss a beat and purrs like a kitten - drives straight as an arrow with no strange road wobbles, shakes or rattles - a truly remarkable daily driver that will give any modern day car a run for it's money! The transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and the car is an absolute pleasure to drive!
Rare with these particularly sophisticated cars, all the options work including all the power options and the fully retractable top and rear window! The car has its original spare wheel and jack in the truck.
This is an extraordinarily rare opportunity to own a great daily driving example of a rust free 1959 Lincoln Continental Mark IV Convertible in a very striking color combination! A true all American classic car for the Lincoln enthusiast or any classic car enthusiast to enjoy today!
