    I bought what i believe to be a 1959 lincoln. I'm not sure the make though. I bought it from an old guy and the title says its a 1958 Town car, which I dont believe exists. I've googled the crap out of this car. I found one identical match in an ad that features a women in the passenger seat of a turquoise lincoln with a faint image of a man driving. They're in the city and its a side profile. Anyhow my car is a turquoise lincoln with an ok paint job and IMMACULATE chrome. It has 54,000 miles on it and it runs and drives. Its a four door w electric seats and locks. It has the lincoln "stars" on the lights as well. Overall, I'd say the car is not showroom though i know he took it to car shows. However, it is all there. Any guesstimates as to what its worth and how many such cars still exist? Thanks for reading and id appreciate any input.

    A picture would help immensly. Prior to 1958, Continental was a division of Ford and its own brand. In 1958, Lincoln and Continental merged, so you could have a Capri, Premiere, or a Continental Mark III (not the same as the 69-71).

    It sounds like you either have a 1958 Continental Mark III or a 1959 Continental Mark IV and yes, there was a "Town Car" version in '59 (and '60) but those are quite rare.
