1963 Lincoln Continental goes up for auction with no reserve

A stunning example of one of the most iconic American luxury cars ever made is going under the hammer with no reserve.

This 1963 Lincoln Continental is almost completely stock, with a 7.0-litre V8 under that ridiculously long bonnet. It was owned by the same person for 30 years before it was recently bought by its current owner.
The Continental was originally white but was resprayed into its current black paint job and received a reupholstered interior during the previous owner's time with the car.

As with many of the finest examples of classic cars, this Lincoln comes with a whole host of receipts. Recent work including an oil pan replacement and gasket changes, as well as paperwork from when the car was originally sold.

The car's bodywork is in great condition, but according to the seller the paint could do with a good detailing as it probably hasn't been professionally worked on since the '90s.

The bumpers shine brightly thanks to recent re-chroming efforts, while all of the exterior lighting works correctly and the light housings are free from blemishes.

Inside, the reupholstered bench seats look immaculate in black, while genuine wood inserts can be seen within the door cards. The interior is presented with minimal wear – only a little flaking of minor trim and a small tear in the headliner are noteworthy.

The engine is believed to be the original unit and was rated at 320bhp when new. An aftermarket fuel pump helps reliability, but it is mostly unmodified.

The car is up for auction on Bring a Trailer with no reserve. The bid is at $11,111 (£8,952) at the time of writing, with three days left on the auction.
