My $600 investment got me a 1969 Lincoln Mark III with 77k original miles on the odometer. The condition of the car reflected its price tag. Getting it started was a chore due to several electrical gremlins, (I had to have it towed to my house as a result). Once running, it actually ran quite well. The brakes worked, but resulted in an uncommanded hard right turn and making some really scary noises in the process. The lights and signals, horn, power seats, windshield wipers, and HVAC system worked fine. The power windows, a/c, and windshield washer did not. The radio didn't work, and the antenna was broken. I had a lot of work ahead of me.
