I found a 1969 Lincoln Mark III in South Beloit IL. I have family there so they went over and took a look at it for me and gave it the thumbs up so i went and got it Saturday night. Driving it home was fun with the exception of the small sparking issue :). The drivers size door panel is off so the wires were exposed and started sparking on the way home.
Car is solid and the interior is very good. Black leather, head liner is perfect. The only thing that needs immediate attention is the drivers armrest. Someone took it off and didn’t put it back on. They made a mess of it so i am calling in a professional on this one. The body has a few rust spots that are visible but nothing a paint job wont fix.
The plan is to get the interior fixed and make sure everything under the hood is in good shape. Then paint, then wheels then air bags. That will get me going for the summer and this winter if the bank account allows i will have the engine pulled & polished.
