1966 Lincoln Continental 4-Door Convertible
Yes! This is the Iconic 'Suicide Door' Ragtop often seen in movies and glorified by Hollywood Royalty, Top Politicians of the Era, and the Wealthy.
Our Lincoln is a Solid Driver with a recently replaced convertible top, fuel tank, and has gone through a mechanical inspection and tune up. This is a very good runner with functioning power options and a solid body.
White exterior over the richly appointed leather interior, this Continental has incredible appeal.
It is a 50 plus year old vehicle and though not a new car, this car has plenty of life in it for many Future Generations to come.
The Continental is very solid, with straight lines and very little cosmetic blems.
Top works beautifully, All actuators and solenoids trip perfectly and 'Voila' in seconds you're cruising down the road in your very own land yacht.
Gauges all appear to be working as they should and car starts, runs, drives, and stops just like intended.
Overall, this Continental is the type of car that continues to appreciate in value and you will benefit from owning, maintaining, and improving it over time.
