The Continental life was enjoyed by people with an appetite for living and the car could easily become an essential part of that life. It is a stylish and uncommon vehicle in that it was the only four-door made in the U.S. during this time, and it had door-hinging that is still commented on by having the rear doors mounted “suicide”-style. The power-operated convertible top completely disappears beneath the rear deck for a nearly seamless appearance. The top is also operational from the exterior, thanks to the factory installation of a key switch on the rear quarter-panel.
The Lincoln being offered is reported as a two-owner car from new that is cosmetically restored with new chrome and paint in Pitcairn Blue (midnight blue) with a black interior and black vinyl top. It is powered by a 462-cid, 340-hp V-8 engine with three-speed automatic transmission. This era of Continental was full of standard appointments which include numerous interior lighting groups, remote side mirror, triple horns, walnut-toned interior applique, leather trim features; power steering, brakes with front discs, windows and two-way seat. This car also has an AM radio.
