I bought a Lincoln Continental Mark III

After searching for a 1970 Lincoln Continental Mark III for a while, today I purchased a 1971 Mark III from Brian Ventura, a very nice Lincoln Collector in Michigan. Before I found this car from this gentleman I tried to get my hands on 3 others, but always the deal fell through... Two were taken off of ebay before the auction ended. I had another one appraised in Michigan, which looked like a very nice car, but the seller did not keep his word. Although we had already fixed the deal and agreed on a price, he suddenly wanted $ 4.000.- more on what we had agreed on when I wanted to send him the money... I do not like this kind of games! As it turned out the car was also involved in an accident which was not repaired properly...
I then placed a “Wanted“ ad on the forum of the LCOC and Brian sent me a message that his car would be for sale. At first he was not sure if he really wanted to let it go, but after he saw that it would go to a good home he decided to let it go.
Today I sent the money. The owner will still generously fix some minor issues and at the beginning of May it will start its journey to Austria. It has been a pleasure to deal with Brian and I cant wait for the car to arrive.
It is a very nice Mark III and Brian took great care of it and fixed all mechanical issues and invested a lot of money into it.
Here are some very nice pictures of it which Brian sent me:
