This is a 1967 Lincoln Continental suicide door convertible. This was the last year for the Lincoln convertible and in my opinion the best year. Approx 2,200 were made this year.
I bought this car about two years ago from the original 90-year-old owner, with only 57,000 original miles on it. This car had a bad case of "sitting" when I got it; it pretty much sat since 1971. Then about 10 years ago, the owner decided to repaint it and do some mechanical work. He got as far as priming it and removing the carb and valve covers. My father-in-law found the car for me and for a Christmas present got it running, put new exhaust on it, painted it factory black, and installed a new factory black convertible top.
The Continental’s color is triple black: black top, black exterior and black leather interior. The factory black leather interior is almost perfect. It has all power options which most of these cars came with. Some options include
These cars were really ahead of their time and were a status symbol of the 1960s. The car comes with a 462 cubic inch, factory 345 horsepower motor backed by a c-6 turbo hydromatic transmission. It is over 18 feet long and weighs 2 1/2 tons.
Right now it is at Vehicle Recreations, with the motor and tranny being completely rebuilt. Once they’ve finished with it, plans are to cruise it in the summers and enjoy. Check back for more pics!!
