5k: Due Diligence: 1969 Lincoln Continental Hardtop

The 4th generation Lincoln Continental (1961-1969) is a big classic Elwood Engel design that exudes cool, but isn’t out of the reach of the average Joe.  The suicide door sedan version is iconic and expensive, but you can pickup a 2-door hardtop version in great shape for cheap.  Find this 1969 Lincoln Continental Hardtop here on craigslist, or here on eBay offered for $5,000 in Belchertown, MA.  Tip from Jim H.

This is normally when we would go into details about the car, the condition of the paint — yaddy yah –– instead, lets look at the seller.  A quick google of the cell phone brings up a linkedin profile of a man named Christopher G (redacted for his privacy, but you should do the same sleuthing for any potential car you might buy) who seems to be a bit of a car guy.

This seller is no lightweight, he looks like he must be in his 50s and
probably originally from the Amherst area. Amherst/Hadley/Belchertown are so close together I think of all of
them as Amherst — anyway, his current experience has him listed as the president of a classic car finding service but cooler is the project for a high end  Classic and Exotic Auto facility for storage and
lounge.
