1962 Lincoln Continental -- Additional Info:

Lincoln is reaching into a lot of its heritage these days, which is reminding us all of some great cars. Arguably there's no better one than the Continental four-door convertible. And in the case of this 1962 model, everything represents the icon perfectly - right down to its factory-correct elegant color combination. It was quite a daring feat to put four doors on a convertible, and especially so with those rear-hinged suicide doors. What's amazing is that the... designers wrapped this bold idea in a modern design that showed restraint from being too outrageous with sheetmetal. That's how an elegant icon was born. This one is covered its original shade of code-V Chestnut paint, and it's updated with a modern clearcoat luster, so it's the subtle and sophisticated choice for a warm summer day with friends. The slab sides give way to chrome accent lines that run the length of the car. The rest of the brightwork is nearly as important to keeping this convertible complete, which makes having those big bumpers, wide horizontal grille, and bright factory wheel covers so essential. While you'll love to have the top down, the pristine white convertible top also provides a very smart-looking color coordination. Open any one of the iconic suicide doors, and you're greeted to an amazing-looking chestnut interior. With the top down, the interior and exterior colors complement each other so well it almost seems tough to see where the sheetmetal ends and the seatbacks begin. A premium Lincoln means plenty of luxury features. This includes leather seats, a terrific wood-like trim, power locks, and a power adjusting front bench. Even the original AM radio is still in place, but there's an AM/FM/CD stereo hidden out of the way so you can still listen to modern tunes without altering the period-correct appearance. But you're favorite features will be the power windows and power convertible top. When these are used together, you never have to leave the driver's seat to go from enclosed luxury to a wind-in-your-hair experience. And since there's air conditioning, you can even stay cool with the top down long into the summer season. The sporty forward-tilting hood gives a great view of the large 430 cubic-inch MEL V8. This is the original motor to the car, per the consignor, and the big black air cleaner on top lets people know that you are keeping this cool cruiser quite original. There's plenty of power, and the dual exhaust even lets out a muscular howl when you really want to get moving. But this Lincoln will never betray its easy-going luxurious nature. The suspension soaks up bumps like a good Lincoln should, and thanks to that long wheelbase, the ride is effortlessly smooth. Plus, the three-speed automatic transmission, power brakes, and power steering make for a fantastic cruiser. This Continental is a model of factory correct elegance. Rarely do you get a chance at a classic that commands this much attention, so don't miss you chance. Call today!!!
