Cohort Pic(k) of the Day: 1975 Lincoln Continental Town Coupe – Caramel Eye-Candy, Slightly Blemished

I couldn’t resist this big Town Coupe posted by nifticus. It might be a ’76; I can’t tell the difference.

But I can tell it’s not quite as unblemished as it might appear at first glance.

There’s some of that nasty cancer working its way to the surface. And this is a British Columbia car, so not from the Rust Belt. But then Fords in the 60s and well into the 70s were notorious rusters, because management was too cheap to install the E-Coat process that it invented.

I assume that bumper is drooping a bit. Hopefully not because the support bracket is rusty.

Considering its age, it’s in pretty good shape.
