1964 Lincoln Sedan that looks really clean for $11,900 in CT on Facebook.


Recommended Posts

Normally I don't really give these alot of consideration but wow the chrome on every inch of this sparkles and alot of the details look very clean.  White seats look to be upholstered wrong color to me,  but the interior is still very nice and the paint as well.

Sharp! If everything works as it should, a great asking price.

Seats should match the door panels, and in any case should be nicer material, but at that price, not an issue.

Not much of a descriptor, and no engine shots?

That is a very nice example, but yes, two-tone interiors were passe by then, at least for Lincoln.  The stitching patterns and buttons are factory correct. The carpet sets on the bottoms of the doors need to be replaced, maybe the carpets too, its hard to tell.   As long as it checks out mechanically and the uni-body without rust damage, its reasonably priced.

 

Ford specified the same, cheap quality carpets in all their cars including Lincolns.   It wears badly and color fades, fine for the entry-level cars, unacceptable in a luxury car.

I wonder if uptown Dodge ever sold his white 63 (I believe) that looked every bit as nice, but he was looking for around $20k.  It had the features I noted above, and I think, red interior, slightly better combo imo, but significantly higher price.

 

With these cars in a closed version you see a lot of hulks in the $5,000 range or nice cars around $20,000 or so.  This one does seem like a deal.  On the want list, but I would likely want an earlier one.

Thanks for the lowdown on the carpet. I didn't know that, but it explains the relatively shabby looking carpet in my low mileage (55k) 1961 Monterey. The rest of the original interior is actually very nice.

I had a '63 Continental convertible and a '64 sedan, plus a '61 sedan parts car, the carpet just a cheap and lousy in all three.  We had '63 and '64 Fords and Mercurys when I was growing up, the carpets were as poor quality as those in the Lincoln.  A Lincoln enthusiast friend and I used to tour junkyards in the 1980's when these cars were plentiful there, without exception, every car had badly worn, faded carpets on the floors and door bottoms.   We compared them to Cadillacs and Buicks of the same time...GM didn't cheap-out anywhere near as bad!

Explains why nearly every low mile gen one Mustang, regardless of interior color or climate has junked up carpeting.  I have been looking and not putting 2&2 together, just thinking, "odd, why are seats and dash mint but carpet is shabby".  I understand they are only original once, but if I end up with one it will get carpet immediately.

Shows as sold already.
 

Looks nice. I’ve never seen that two tone seat treatment on one of these before. Not sure if the blue/teal/whatever color was even available in ‘64 and I’m too tired to go check my references.

 

The pics don’t show the troublesome areas very well, but it must have checked out to someone’s satisfaction. 
 

Great cars. I’ve had my ‘64 ragtop for over 20 years and I still love it.
 

Oh, and I replaced the carpets- door bottoms and floors!

BTW, I didn't mention what a beautiful car this Lincoln is! When I hear the name "Lincoln Continental," this car is the first thing I think of. Very nice! That price seems very reasonable to me, though I admit I know little about Continentals.
