Description

There aren't many cars that attain icon status, ut the four-door Lincoln Continental convertibles of the 1960s certainly qualify. Thanks to a recent surge in popularity fueled by pop culture, ars like this 1967 Continental have become the hottest property on four wheels. And thanks to a striking color combination, his one is sure to stand out, specially with its wonderful "suicide door" design.Following the chrome-fueled bender that was the 1950s, he all-new Continental was a vision of understatement and restraint. The shape was clean-cut, hiseled, nd immaculately manicured and it has influenced cars for decades since. This lovely convertible was restored a few years ago, hich is a good thing because resurrecting one of these is an expensive proposition. Fortunately, t seems that this big ragtop has lived a good life and needed no major surgery to whip it back into shape, ecause the final results are fantastic. The smooth flanks remain straight and all four doors fit like they should. It was covered in original code T Red paint, o it's bright and attention-grabbing, aking it the ideal choice for a warm summer day with friends. There's still enough chrome to remind us this was a VERY expensive car when it was new, nd the bumpers, tainless trim along the fender tops, nd the bold CONTINENTAL block letters on the hood. This is a very imposing car.The black leather interior is remarkable, oth in color and condition. And yes, hat's the correct code 7A setup as delivered by the factory. The hides are in excellent condition with just the right amount of patina to make them inviting and stepping on board is always an event. Everything was standard on this big cruisers, ncluding power windows and locks, /C, nd a neatly integrated AM/FM/cassette stereo with CD changer and door-mounted speakers, s well as a power bench seat for the front. All four doors open and close easily, nd the rear doors latch without excessive slamming, hich is more proof that this car has always been solid. With the power top mechanism, runk access is through a key on the side of the car, hich powers the deck lid up so it can be loaded, r the entire top can be powered down from outside the car, very cool feature! Speaking of the top, t's a correct black vinyl with glass rear window, nd it works correctly, liminating one of the most expensive pieces to restore on these cars.Lincoln's big 462 cubic inch V8 (not to be confused with the 460) provides effortless power. The engine bay is tidy and clean, ith all the stock equipment in place, o there are no worries about its mechanical fitness. Actually, hese cars were virtually bulletproof mechanically, nd it starts easily, dles smoothly, nd with the 3-speed automatic transmission, akes for a fantastic highway cruiser. The suspension soaks up bumps without rattling the body, nd thanks to that long wheelbase, he ride is impossibly smooth. Power brakes and steering are the only way a car like this is even possible, nd the fresh dual exhaust system has a muscular hum befitting such a machine. 235/75/15 whitewall radials were fitted to the original wheels with full wheel covers to finish the sophisticated look.When I say these cars are red hot, mean it, nd if you're even considering this one, urge you to call today, ecause they just don't last long, specially the good ones like this.
