1985 Lincoln Continental Valentino 5.0 Liter from North America
A powerful mid-eighties elegance
I replaced the air suspension for tight springs for a sportier ride.
The catalytic converter was replaced.
New air conditioner fan and electrical work for it was done.
New engine mount installed.
New ball joints, bushings, sway bars.
I had the passenger side door handle replaced.
I replaced interior light bulb in the doors and dash board.
For upgrade and age issues, I replaced my premium radio with cassette for a Compact Disk Radio.
Since the original speakers were 18 years old, I replaced them with three and four way Pioneer speakers.
I had to get the brake light adjusted for faster response.
The window motors for the passenger side front and rear were replaced.
I would agree with one of the writers who wrote that this car is one that will take car of you if you take care of it.
What I love about this car is that the body is elegant and classy, yet under the hood sits a mean mustang like engine that embarrasses little show-off rice burner car that mistake it for a big slow taxi.
I know that I find this car very comfortable, but when I loan it out to friends, they come back and tell me how surprised they were to find how comfortable it made them as well.
My favorite feature is the computerized dash board and the lay- out. My new hide-away radio marries the dash board, especially when the car is turned off.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
