eBay Up for sale are two 1964 Lincolns. Both are the same color combination, however, one has a leather interior and the other is cloth. Why two and why am I selling? The first car pictured is clearly the better of the two. I bought this through eBay, sight unseen from an unscrupulous seller in California. It was suggested the car had very low original mileage and what sold me on it was the condition of the interior. Upon receiving the title, it stated the car had 77K miles not 12K as the odometer and seller stated. The good: The interior is in excellent condition and smells good, chrome is nice, and the paint shines. The bad: the motor has a rod knock (seller disguised by retarding the timing), the transmission makes an ominous sound (though shifts fine and fluid looks good) and the paint has some crazing and is hiding some questionable bodywork. The car drove nicely when I was still planning on using it as is, but once the rod knock was revealed, I packed it away in a climate controlled storage building in disgust.
Shortly after, I ended up buying the second car out of Kansas, with the thought I wanted better paint on the CA car and most likely do a rotisserie restoration on the KS car shell (and possibly use that motor) and then put all the nice interior, electrics, and bright work from the CA car on the restored body. With these cars, having a second one for parts is very helpful with all the relays and power accessories. The KS car has A/C the CA one doesn't appear to now (it might have originally). So again, I'd take the best of the two to make one. The KS car has 76K miles and the motor spins over easily. I pulled the plugs and repeatedly soaked it with Marvel Mystery Oil for a long time before trying to crank it over. It has not been registered since 1975 and was stored on a farm by a Lincoln horder for decades. As a result, the interior on that car needs some serious Fabreeze/cleaning. But the engine might be good after swapping carbs/distributor etc from the CA car. I didn't run a compression test on it however. If you're okay with the paint on the CA car (I'm crazy picky) then I would just leave it alone and fix the mechanical aspects of the car.
My father-in-law owned a transmission shop so he built me up the 65 Lincoln PCA transmission you see and that too is included in the sale. Totally gone through and ready to go. I have been on a BMW buying kick lately, running out of storage space, and have lost the passion for this project. I have been thinning out my vintage collection having recently sold a 60 DeSoto on eBay (see buyer feedback) and 56 and 57 Chryslers. Unlike the guy who duped me I want to be upfront with any prospective buyers and have them be pleasantly surprised when seeing the car!On Aug-08-18 at 21:05:37 PDT, seller added the following information:Feel free to contact me on my cell at 917-847-1690 if you'd prefer to speak in person.
