Dark green is my favorite color, so this checks a big box!  If I lived closer, I would have already gone in person to check it out...

Probably the longest run-on sentence ever... 

 

True!  And really just a mish-mash of sentences

and phrases, put together with no punctuation.

In English class, he was probably doodling cars!

 

But even worse was his offer, "I will trade for classic

cars if trade is highly in my favor."  Shouldn't he be

thinking unselfishly of the other person too--likely a

fellow car fan--so that both could benefit from the

transaction?

I really, really don't understand the old car marketplace.  A drop to $13,000 and this car sits?  While others I have saved on facebook marketplace show SOLD?   

 

A 1955 Imperial or Cadillac CdV in similar condition would be advertised for $25,000 to $35,000.  There is a much worse (still decent) 1955 Imperial on this forum for sale now for $25,000.    I have not seen a similar CdV anywhere close to this for less than $25,000 recently.

 

For whatever reason, I have had Lincoln reference books while I got rid of all of my Cadillac and Buick reference books.  Postwar Lincolns, like Imperials, just had a hard time keeping up with Cadillac, maybe I feel sorry for Lincolns.    

 

Whether you own a Chrysler New Yorker, Imperial, Lincoln, or Cadillac, buying one and driving it around the neighborhood to the ice cream shop delivers the same general experience.

Like the unsold 1964 Imperial coupe noted recently, I don’t understand how some cars sell while other languish.  The 64 Imperial and this Lincoln provide the same old car hobby fun as comparative cars which sell for much more.  In fact, owning a bit more uncommon car might make you the hit at the local shows and cruise ins.

I agree 100%, this is a unique nice looking car that you don't see every day. I always search out cars that I haven't seen at car shows. No offense to anyone, but I have seen my share of tri five chevys to last a lifetime. Great price on this one also.

On close inspection of the pictures, I think the

seat upholstery may be unauthentic.  I looks good,

and appropriate, but the bolsters appear to be

newer vinyl instead of leather, and the cloth inserts

look possibly like a 1980's napped fabric.

 

If so, that could be holding down the price and interest;

but the door panels appear to have the correct material.
