1979 Mark IV Lipstick Edition
 

2,199 original miles  

Climate Controlled Garage find (not barn find)

Never touched – 100% original & survivor  
Never even been touched up that I can see
Loaded with all the options – 5 Aluminum Wheels – AM/FM/Cassette

I doubt you will find a survivor any nicer than the ’76 & it only has 2,199 miles

Car is neat & clean.  Minor detailing in engine compartment could be done.
Interior looks like new
Plastic is still on rear seat belts – rear seats - may never have been used?
Frame has some minor surface rust that can be cleaned easily.  I don’t think the frame was factory painted?
Paint shines but there is some minor spider webbing on top of hood & top of trunk.  I’ve tried to take photos but they really don’t show it but I can see it.
Paint on roof, sides & fenders looks like new & are OK.  
There are a few rock chips on passenger side front of hood.  Drivers side is OK. 
Weatherstripping, side moldings & fender well trim looks like new.
 I have decided not to touch it up & keep the car 100% untouched & original. 
 Again, it is an unrestored survivor.
The new owner can decide what they want to do.


Window sticker - Broadcast Sheet – Brass Tag - & many other original docs

Two owners since new – less than 50 miles per year

1st owner – Bought new in May 22, 1976 @ Schneider Lincoln Mercury in St. Paul, MN    I have original bill of sale, window sticker & many other docs.
Husband died less than a year after purchase & his wife put in climate-controlled storage for over 20 years.  She never drove it.

2nd owner – a pal of mine – had it about 25 years & kept it stored.
 He used to own a Chevy Dealership in MN.
He had his mechanic just went over the car – (August 2020) - rebuilt carb, changed fluids, checked everything, buffed, waxed & detailed

No fluid drips – Tires are like new – 2nd owner replaced them.


All storage was in a climate-controlled building since new & on a battery tender
 
This has to be one of the lowest mile & most original 76’s anywhere?  
The car was just not driven very often.  
It has been started at least a couple times a year while in storage & had short warm up drives (a couple miles) to insure everything was working OK.

The car really belongs in a museum.
