1976 Lincoln Mark IV Lipstick Edition – 2,178 miles


1976 Lincoln Mark IV Lipstick Edition (special edition)

2,178 original miles 

Never touched – 100% original & survivor

Never even been touched up that I can see

Loaded with all the options – Aluminum Wheels

Value question?   There are a few minor rock chips on passenger side hood just above the headlight.  Drivers side is OK.  At this time, I’ve decided to leave it as is & do not really want to disturb the originality or value.  Is this the right decision or should I touch it up?  I’m thinking paint match after 45 years could be an issue?  What do you think?  Does the value go down if I touch it up?

Car is neat & clean.  Minor detailing in engine compartment could be done.

Frame is nice & clean with no rust

2nd owner’s mechanic just went thru the car (Aug. 2020) & buffed it

Rebuilt Carb – Changed fluids – checked brakes, transmission & everything else

No fluid drips – Tires are like new

Window sticker & other docs

Two owners since new – less than 50 miles per year

1st owner – husband died 6 months after purchase – she put in storage for over 20 years.  She never drove it

2nd owner – a pal of mine – had it around 25 years & kept it stored.  He used to own a Chevy Dealership in MN.

All storage was in a climate-controlled building since new & on a battery tender

Bought new in @ Schneider Lincoln Mercury in St. Paul, MN

This has to be one of the lowest mile & most original 76’s anywhere?

The car was just not driven very often.

It has been started at least a couple times a year while in storage & had short warm up drives a couple miles to insure everything was working OK.

The car really belongs in a museum. 

I am open to serious offers over $35k
