Reported as only one of five coaches built Lincolns by legendary car customizer George Barris included with a Certificate of Authenticity. Barris built the "Bugazzi" on a Lincoln Continental Mark IV platform and it featured unusual custom touches throughout. Motor Trend even awarded the "Bugazzi" the 'Car of the Month' in July 1973.The "Bugazzi" Custom is a styling exercise created by some of the industry's most talented and creative designers. Car show promoter Paul Rimmer enlisted ex-GM stylist Harry Bradly to create a dream car. The goal was to build an American Rolls-Royce using a Lincoln Mk IV platform. Production of the "Bugazzi" soon started and was then abruptly stopped. Enter Kustom Kar builder George Barris, who took the design and decided to make his own. Barris took over production of the "Bugazzi" and had plans to make as many as 25 examples per year, each for $29,500. Buyers included Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, Peter Lawford, and J y Bishop. Including ours that was built especially for actor and comedian Danny Thomas.Finished in a silver metallic, this custom shows extremely well. The list of customization done on the "Bugazzi" includes hand painted pin stripping, a six-inch longer frontal area, dual floating oversized square brass headlights, modified front fenders, front-to-rear running boards, radius rolled wheel wells, canted door windows, air-foam padded top. All the trim is present, complete and displays normal wear. The front and rear bumpers fit and finish is good. The weather-stripping is pliable, with little or no signs of drying, tearing or shrinkage. The original "Bugazzi" 15-inch wheels present well, along with the wide-whitewall tires.Inside, the grey leather tufted front bucket seats and rear seats appear with normal with only slight wear spots on the drivers seat's outside bolster visible. The matching grey door panels with real marble panels, carpet and dashboard also with real marble are a continuation of the striking silver exterior of the car and look fantastic. All gauges are in their place have correct appearance and function as originally designed, however the windshield wipers are inoperable. The originally equipped leather steering is in excellent condition with real marble inserts, however, the horn is inoperable. Power seats, power windows, power locks and upgraded Xtreeme AM/FM/CD stereo.This nicely presented Continental equipped with a chrome accented 4 barrel, 460-cubic-inch V8 cylinder engine, and its mated to a Select-Shift three-speed automatic transmission, 4 wheel disc brakes, power steering and power brakes. The wheels are 15-nch chrome deep dish rims with wide whitewall Coker classic tires.This 1973 Lincoln Continental Bugazzi while it may look tame next to some of George Barris other builds, but is still a wild custom compared to the standard Mk IV Continental. With George Barris's death all of his creations are rapidly increasing in value. The original Bat mobile recently sold for $4.6 million at auction, no telling what this Barris "Bugazzi" with a Certificate Of Authority will do in the future...

om Lincoln

Lincoln, ofta betraktat som mer än bara en lyxigare variant av Ford, har skapat sin egen nisch i bilvärlden med en rik historia och en uppsättning distinkta modeller. Låt oss ta en promenad ner längs minnesgatan i Lincolns historia.

Tidiga början:

Grundat år 1917 av Henry Leland, mannen bakom Cadillac-märket, började Lincoln ursprungligen som ett lyxbilföretag. Märket fick snabbt rykte om sig för sitt högkvalitativa hantverk och uppmärksamhet för detaljer.


År 1922 förvärvades Lincoln av Ford Motor Company, och det markerade början på ett långt samarbete. Ford ville positionera Lincoln som sin lyxdivision och konkurrera med andra prestigefyllda varumärken på marknaden.

Klassiska modeller:

Genom åren har Lincoln introducerat flera ikoniska modeller som har lämnat ett varaktigt intryck på bilvärlden:

Lincoln Continental: Lanserad på 1940-talet blev Continental omedelbart en klassiker. Dess eleganta design och ikoniska självmördardörrar gjorde den till en symbol för lyx och sofistikering.
Lincoln Town Car: Introducerad på 1980-talet blev Town Car synonymt med chaufförsdriven lyx. Dess rymliga interiör och behagliga åktur gjorde den till en favorit bland företagsledare och dignitärer.
Lincoln Navigator: Sent på 90-talet såg vi en ökande popularitet för SUV:er, och Lincoln svarade snabbt med Navigator. En fullstor lyx-SUV kombinerade Navigator praktiskt användande med lyx och blev ett populärt val bland förmögna familjer.
