Looks like a low-mileage car. Can you enlighten us?

Thanks for your inquiry. I thought I had included the mileage. Yes, the Lincoln has right around 40,600 origianl miles.

I purchased the car March 3, 2010 in Florida & was transported to my home in Queensbury NY. Only reason for selling now, is we have seven classic cars and, with some health issues we are downsizing to around 1 or 2.

Other vehicles for sale: 1960 AMC Rambler American Custom 2 dr, 1965 Ford Mustang Coupe, 1967 VW Beetle w/Sunroof, 1971 Dodge Dart Swinger

and, (possibly 1950 DeSoto Custom 2 dr Club Coupe, 1950 DeSoto Custom 4 dr sedan) - All cars are low mileage cars

in original condition.

Irv, if the time comes to sell, I'd be interested in your '65 Mustang. Can you E-mail me some details? Matt@HarwoodMotors.com.

Looks like a nice Lincoln and reasonably priced. I sold a similar car to a gentleman in Thailand(!) not too long ago and crushed the price guides with it--I think these cars are going to see some gains as people not too much older than I am come into the hobby and look for the high-end cars of their youth. There was nothing bigger or more luxurious than one of these land yachts, and it turns out that they're still quite pleasant to drive.

John,

Thanks for your comment. Yes, I did have the car for sale last year (maybe was asking around $10K for it) - priced according to what I have in it. Only reason for selling is we have too many cars, getting older and have some mobility problems (bad knees), so it is time to sell some and move on. At the price I now have on the car - I will not be lowering at all. I have had two offers for $5K and would not consider going that low. And - it is as nice as it looks in pictures, maybe even nicer!!

Irv, $5000 would only be appropriate for a higher-mileage car

that wasn't nearly as well detailed. I regularly check the

prices realized on Ebay, though I would never buy a car

sight-unseen myself. Watch out for bottom-fishers, and

don't let them make a quick buck at your expense!

Asking prices (from dealers or optimistic sellers) for cars like yours are

often double what you're asking, but such prices are practically irrelevant.

I've seen dealers seemingly unyielding at $17,000 on their websites,

but their very cars bring $7000 to $10,000 on Ebay.

Have you thought of advertising it beyond this Forum

(which tends to get limited exposure), such as in the

magazine of the Lincoln and Continental Owners' Club?

I would ebay that car and set the opening bid at the minimum acceptable selling price rather than playing the "reserve bid" crapola........ :mad:

Ebay would eat less than $200 and even if it didn't sell (unlikely I think) you'd get free world wide advertising.

Thanks for the info. I had listed it on Ebay a couple of years ago - and made the mistake of setting a reserve price. The bid came within $250 of meeting it. I plan to list it again on ebay and will definitely take your advice, as I was going to start the bid at a minimum price with no reserve - and see where it goes. Thanks again. Irv

Irv, will you be listing the Rambler for sale on this forum when the time comes ?

Thank you

I will be listing ALL of our cars on this website during the next month or so. We recently bought the Rambler and it is a true gem! Just like on my wife's mom had when we got married in Jan of 1963. (same color, body, etc.). Had no intent to sell it, but as I mentioned earlier - I have some mobility problems that preclude keeping all our cars.

Are you located in Vermont? My brother lives in Poultney VT. We are about 45 minuts or so from Rutland - near Glens Falls NY.

I was born in Vermont and consider myself a Vermonter but unfortunately my family moved to Rochester, NY back in the early 50's in order to make a living. I lived near Syracuse,NY for 40 years and moved back to the Rochester area 10 years ago..

I will be watching for your listings.

Irv, I'd put the minimum bid on Ebay close to the

$7895 you were asking on the AACA's Lincoln Forum.

As I wrote here earlier, don't resignedly feel you must

accept a low price!

Many cars take several tries before they actually sell on Ebay,

I've noticed. A "Buy it now" price might be helpful too.

coud you email me some info on the dart swinger cdequipment98@yahoo.com

Thanks for your inquiry. This is an ALL ORIGINAL 1971 Dart Swinger, tpost-72405-143143059755_thumb.jpgwo door coupe with vinyl top, 225 slant six engine. Right around 32K original miles. Only things not original to the car: battery, 2 years old and tires, both of which are in excellent condition, as is the rest of the car. Only thing not working (including the radio) is the gas gauge. I believe it is the sending unit - worked at times, but not now.

I am not sure where you will find another Dart Swinger as nice original condition as this one. As such, the price is pretty firm. Car runs, drives and stops PERFECT! I am attaching a few pics - but if you want more, send me your email address and I will be glad to send them to you. The car is in winter storage and will be removed on April 25th.

PRICE: $9150

Assuming you are speaking about the Dodge Dart - not the Lincoln. Yes, and as far as I know - never had a repaint. Of course, that is the intake manifold which does not get extremely hot - unlike the exhaust manifold, which is now starting to show some rust from the heat. I believe I have had the car close to 6 years now.

Someone has a nice 1976 lincoln now. I used to work for Milford Fabricators in Detroit MI. 1982-1984. They were a division of Bud Wheel Comp. The Company that stamped a lot of the Metal bodies at one time in the early 1900s. The owner of Mil Fab was a Armenian and had a 76 Linc just like the one just sold. He would go on vacation and we would go steal his car and rebuild it then put it back in his garage. That guy thought it was the greatest car in the world.
