1978 Lincoln Mark V St. Tropez           

This automobile is truly a remarkable vehicle.  It is a custom convertible, with coach work by American Custom Coachworks of Beverly Hills, California.  It is not known how rare this vehicle is, but we have seen claims that no more than ten like this were made by ACC in 1978.  It is a ‘certified custom’ by the Lincoln and Continental Owners Association, which means it was ordered by a Lincoln dealer from the Ford Motor Company to be sold at the dealership.  The car was ordered sold new by the Bob Sight Lincoln-Mercury dealership in Kansas City.  It is believed to have sold for approximately $40,000 when new.

The car has had one repaint, by Ortloff Brothers Restorations of Helena, Montana.  It was repainted exactly as it came from ACC in 1978, including the hand-painted pin-striping to match the unique original pin-striping.  Documentation of all of this will go with the car.    The repaint was done in 1993, and still looks very good, with only a few very minor blemishes during the past 20 years.  It is dark champagne and gold metallic two-tone, and is a striking look.  The car is rust free.

The car has all power equipment, and cold air conditioning.  It has near new tires, and polished alloy wheels.  The interior is a tan leather, and is original, although it has been professionally re-dyed.  The carpet is original and is still new looking, and has the original Lincoln floor mats.  The original boot to be used when the top is down is very presentable.  The top looks new, and was replaced by the previous owner. 

 The car was featured on the back cover of the Lincoln and Continental Owners magazine in 2005,and on an interior page in 2009.  It has been shown in car shows, and has won a number of trophies.  The car currently has 78,000 miles since new, and runs and drives beautifully. 

The current owners are elderly and are downsizing their collection.  If you are looking for a car that will continue to draw attention, and grow in value over the years, this car is well worth a look.  Call the owners at 409-771-0333 or 409-771-3037 for more information.  Inspections are invited.  The car is in Texas.  It is being advertised in national magazines, so is subject to prior sale.

Ford Q3 pretax profits drop to $1.18B

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 16:28:00 EST

Following positive third quarter financial results recently from General Motors, rival Ford took a tumble in Q3. The automaker posted pre-tax profits of $1.18 billion, compared to about $2.59 billion in Q3 2013, a drop of around 54 percent. Net income also suffered with $835 million made in the quarter, versus $1.272 billion last year, a decline of about 34 percent. The Blue Oval blamed the gloomy figures on three reasons in its release: "lower volume, higher warranty costs and adverse balance sheet exchange effects."
There were problems of one kind or another in practically every region. North America experienced higher warranty costs than expected, partially due to recalls. The sales volume for the quarter was 665,000 units, versus 725,000 in Q3 2013, and pre-tax results amounted to $1.41 billion versus $2.296 billion last year.
South America and Europe both posted worse pre-tax results than last year. On the bright side, European volume was up slightly to 321,000 vehicles, from 303,000 in Q3 2013. The Middle East and Africa also lost $15 million, but that was an improvement compared to the $25 million loss previously experienced in this region.

Ford issues six recalls covering 101,000 vehicles for multiple issues

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 15:30:00 EST

Ford is announcing six separate recalls for a variety of issues affecting a dozen models and a total of 100,610 vehicles in North America. However, according to Ford spokesperson Kelli Felker, "None of them have caused accidents or injuries." Half of them cover fewer than 1,000 cars.
The largest recall covers 92,022 North American examples (about 83,250 in the US) of some models of the Ford Taurus, Lincoln MKS, Ford Interceptor, Flex and Lincoln MKT from the 2013 and 2014 model years; the 2012-2014 Edge and the 2014 Lincoln MKX. All of them have a potential issue with the halfshaft on the right side that might not be fully seated and could move outward over time. If it shifts too far, the models may no longer be able to drive, and the condition could also allow the vehicles to roll away, even when in Park. Dealers will inspect the shaft to make sure it's seated and will replace the part if necessary.
The next-largest recall covers 5,264 North American examples (4,867 in the US) of the Ford F59 Commercial Stripped Chassis from the 2011-2014 model years. It's possible that an electrical junction box can corrode in areas with salty roads and short circuit. The problem could potentially cause a fire. Dealers will replace the box with an improved design.

Lincoln debuts MKC ads starring Matthew McConaughey

Fri, 05 Sep 2014 17:02:00 EST

Lincoln is making the decisive commitment that it wants to improve its brand perception going forward. It can't be cheap to hire A-list talent like Academy Award-winning actor Matthew McConaughey and director Nicolas Winding Refn, best known for Drive, for its new ad campaign for the 2015 MKC crossover, but the company is showing that it's serious about the new vehicle and its future. The first three of these five commercials are just hitting YouTube, and they begin airing on television on September 6.
The Live in Your Moment campaign is all about Lincoln trying to sell not just the MKC to customers but also explain the brand's philosophy. It's one of the oldest luxury automakers around, but hasn't exactly had a glorious history, especially recently. Based on these first ads, we can see that there's a definite focus on philosophizing rather than focusing on the crossover. At times, McConaughey seems just a mustache and a mangled beer can away from reprising his role from True Detective.
The first ad (above) is simply titled Intro and sets the mood and concept for the whole campaign. Bull has McConaughey talking to a longhorn in the middle of a road, and I Just Like It has him explaining his affinity for the brand. Lincoln's full release is available below, and you can view the other ads by flipping through the playlist in the video player above.
