Asked by Jul 30, 2009 at 05:17 AM about the Lincoln Continental

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

i have a chance to buy a 1958-1960 Lincoln Continental, it is obviously not as nice as the on in the picture, as it has probably been sitting in the field for at least 10 years and would need some restoring, i am just wondering if it would be a good investment to make if i could get the car as it sits for under a $1000?

There are few things more expensive than a cheap Lincoln....my experience is to find the best example you can afford and pay up - it's MUCH cheaper.

Before you buy it, check that undercarriage! It has been in a field for 10 years. It could come to pieces when you try to move it. These are among the largest, heaviest uni-body cars ever built and very complex ones at that. What you may end up with is a collection of parts that could help restore one that is structurally sound, nothing more.
