One-Owner 1970 Lincoln Continental Has Everything: All-Original, Unrestored, Low Miles

The fifth-generation Continental started with moderate sales numbers. Lincoln produced 37K units in 1970, with the sedan accounting for over 28K cars.

However, the Continental production gradually increased until the end of the decade, eventually exceeding 95K units in 1977. The series' last year witnessed over 92K Continentals rolling off the assembly lines.

One of examples born in 1970 landed on eBay earlier this week courtesy of seller psychic-2775, with the car flexing one of the most incredible packages you can find today.

The Continental is all-original, unrestored, spent its whole life with the same family, has no rust, wears the original paint, comes with a nearly spotless interior, and has only 28K miles on the clock.

It's the magic package that collectors typically drool over, so I wouldn't be surprised to see finding a new owner fast.

The owner explains that his grandfather purchased the Continental from the dealership. They inherited the car approximately one year ago, and it now sells with a title in their name.

Nothing has been reconditioned, restored, or replaced, so the Continental comes with the same configuration and parts as the day when it rolled off the assembly lines. It's a different type of survivor whose place should be in someone's collection, requiring only subtle refinements to be a perfect 10 Continental.

The body requires minor repairs, as the owner explains that their grandfather caused a little dent on the passenger fender when he pulled the car from the garage. Otherwise, you won't find anything to complain about. The Continental looks good but probably needs a good wash to shine like a brand-new car after it arrives in your garage.

The odometer indicates only 28K miles, and the owner swears they are all original. The car has only left the garage for occasional rides, and it's the reason the miles are so low. The interior proves the car has been barely driven, as everything inside looks flawless.

Unfortunately, we won't know the selling price until the auction ends, as the owner also enabled a reserve. The top offer today is $5,900, but the reserve is still in place, meaning that the Internet must do better to give this Lincoln a second chance. However, without any specifics on the reserve, it's impossible to tell how close we are to the winning bid, so we'll have to wait for five more days until the auction ends.

The car is located in Antioch, California, and it should be able to drive anywhere on its wheels. However, considering the low miles, you might want to put it on a trailer and take it directly into storage, as such a survivor should only leave the garage on sunny Sundays.
