This rust-free car was undercoated when new, was always properly stored indoors and was never driven in winter, which accounts for its rust-free and beautiful condition today.  Even the undercarriage is virtually spotless, as the photographs attest.

A few items of note are that the air conditioning works, but does not blow cold.  Additionally, the driver’s and passenger’s front windows do not currently function, but the rear power windows and power moonroof function as they should.  The exterior of the car exhibits some minor pitting on the chrome grille near the bumper, the chrome trim below the headlamps, as well as on the trim surrounding the tail lamps and the trim that runs along the edge of the trunk lid, but this does not diminish the overall appearance of the car.  The chrome on the bumpers does not exhibit pitting.  In addition, there is a small door ding on the driver’s side door below the trim that could easily be removed through paintless dent removal.  This does not diminish the overall appearance of the car, and other than these items, the exterior and interior of the car are virtually without blemish.

This car was originally purchased from Broadvue Motors, Inc. in Middleburg Heights, Ohio by a couple in July 1974 for the wife’s use.  It was never driven in the winter, and was used primarily as a limited use “Sunday Driver,” accounting for its low mileage.  The wife passed away in 1979, and the car was not driven thereafter by her husband, as it was not his preferred type of car to drive.  The husband then gave the car to his son in 1985, at which time the car had only 6,514 miles.  Since 1985, the car has been driven under 300 miles, but was properly stored during this time and received the maintenance that it required.  More recent maintenance performed at Nick Mayer Lincoln-Mercury, Inc. included a new thermostat, radiator hoses, coolant flush, transmission fluid flush, oil change, fuel filter, repacking of wheel bearings, tune-up, brake cleaning and adjustment, and new exhaust system.  Although the car was originally equipped with a dual exhaust system, it was replaced with a single exhaust system at the dealer.
