If you’re looking to own a classic drop top with a lot of TV exposure, something like this Lincoln Continental Convertible will fit that bill perfectly.
It may not be identical to the car many have come to know from the Entourage HBO hit show (and 2015 movie), which was a 1965 model featuring a mid-cycle redesign, but it comes pretty darn close.
According to the Bring a Trailer ad, this 1963 model has a total of 64,000 miles (103,000 km) on the clock, and has been driven just 11,000 miles (17,700 km) since 2013.
The exterior looks a bit out of shape, thanks to all that corrosion and bubbling, but the car’s original white over red paintjob has been preserved. We imagine it could easily be restored to its full glory by whoever ends up placing the winning bid.
On a more positive note, a new convertible top was installed by the car’s previous owner and features a folding plastic rear window. The seller states that the electric folding system works well,aside from the fact you have to pull the top down manually at the end in order to get it to latch properly.
Inside, there’s new seat upholstery and carpeting, modern speakers and an LCD stereo head-unit fitted beneath the OEM radio. There is however an issue with the ignition, where you have to give the key multiple turns in order to engage the starter.
Powering the 1963 Continental Convertible is a 430ci (7.0-liter) MEL V8 mated to a 3-speed automatic gearbox. Output is around 325 HP – much needed in a car that weighs as much as a full-size modern SUV.
But you don’t get this one for the power, but the looks. After all, Entourage or not, driving around in a vintage convertible with suicide rear doors is, in and of itself, extremely cool. Just don’t hang oversized dice from the mirror like Johnny Drama, OK?
