Another Mark III post! What can I say, I’ve always liked the personal-lux Lincolns, due to several in the family way back when. But this one trips my trigger even more than the average Mark, due to the totally fantastic aqua paint and interior.
I have a serious jones for ’60s and ’70s American land yachts painted in metallic aqua. Add an aqua interior, and I’m smitten, whether it’s a ’66 New Yorker, ’64 T-Bird or ’60 Cadillac Sixty Special.
So when I Spotted this one on Denver CL, my radar started signaling, awooga awooga! Danger of lust overload! The car itself is in Fort Collins. As usual, it was posted on a FB group I frequent, called Finding Future Classic Cars.
According to the ad, “Selling this beauty for my father in law, sad to let it go but he is looking to downsize his collection. Has a 460 V8 engine with 96k original miles, runs smooth!”
“Feels like driving your couch!! Needs a little TLC but it is mechanically sound, all original in and out, power everything, good interior, minimal wear for a 50 year old car. Not perfect but turns heads everywhere you go!”
But between my starting this post and finishing it, the ad disappeared. Just as well. As I was having stupid thoughts concerning flying to CO, buying this aqua-fantastic prairie schooner, and driving it back to the Midwest, despite having exactly no place to put it. But with the $6500 ask, someone got a deal!
