This 1963 Lincoln Continental represents a great chance for someone to own a classic piece of American automotive history.
The car is described as a clean example that went through a full color change from white to black during the previous owner’s 30-year tenure and is powered by a 7.0-litre (430ci) V8 paired to a three-speed automatic gearbox.
The big Conti was bought recently from the current owner, who mentions some recent work done on the car, including the front bench seat being reupholstered in black leather and most of the brightwork both inside and out re-chromed.
Interior features like the power windows are working as they should, but others like the hydraulically-actuated door locks, the cruise control and the air-conditioning don’t. These niggles though don’t really matter if you think that this Lincoln is one of the most defining luxury cars of the era, featuring these very stylish suicide rear doors and a unique road presence.
The car is being offered at no reserve over at Bring A Trailer right now, with only a few days remaining before the auction ends, so we suggest interested parties head over there and start bidding on this icon.
