This survivor 1969 Lincoln Continental Mark III was preserved in a Tennessee garage for the past 38 years. The odometer displays 27, 309 original miles. The car is solid throughout, straight body panels, and it would make a wonderful car for restoration and eventual driving pleasure again.

As many collectors know, the Lincoln Mark III was a personal luxury car, which was designed at the request of Ford’s Vice President, Lee Iacocca. The car was marketed as the flagship of the Lincoln Division of the Ford Motor Company from 1969 to 1971.

The VIN for this car is 9Y89A842847. It can be decoded as follows: “9” denotes the year produced (1969). “Y” denotes that it was produced in the Wixom, Michigan plant. The “89” denotes a 2-door coupe with a body series code. The “A” is the classic Ford 460 cubic inch V-8 engine. And finally, the “842847” stands for the run number. In 1969 the first run number was 84-0001. This car was number 2847. It was number 2847 out of a total of 7,700 produced in 1969. The car was priced at $6,910 (or $49,500 with current inflation adjustment).

This car is great example of a 1969 Lincoln Mark III survivor with low original miles. It has a good exterior/interior color combination, and it’s an excellent candidate for restoration to bring the car back to its full glory.

Classic cars, such as this one, have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in past years. According to the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI), in 2013, the investment potential for classic cars jumped 39%. In 2014, it gained 16%, and in 2015 it climbed to 17%. In the last 10 years, according to HAGI, investment potential in classic cars has gained 467%.

This classic 1969 Lincoln Mark III has good investment potential. It will be fun to drive and a chance to own a piece of automotive history! Please feel free to contact me for more information. I’ll be happy to provide a more detailed description or additional pictures. This is a no reserve auction, so the car goes to the highest bidder!
