Classic Car Auctions says:

Dramatic Lincoln Continental Coupé...  Supplied with a valid MoT certificate until 2016, this left-hand drive, automatic was first registered in the UK in March 1994 and we believe was built by Lincoln in 1971. The vendor tells us that the car has benefitted from "a good recent respray" and in his comments describes every other aspect of the car as "commensurate with age and mileage" which seems fair enough. Apparently it runs well and has no major issues, and might possibly be improved with a bit of detailing which is always fun to do when you first buy a car.

The odometer on the Speedo may not be working, as the last two,of the several previous MoTs, display the same mileage.(69,517). This car is sensibly guided, and in terms of '£s per square foot', this Continental has to be the best value in the auction. This an attractive piece of Americana, straight out of a glamorous 70's movie, and will appeal to a growing band of fans.
