1966 LINCOLN CONTINENTAL 'PHAETON' CONVERTIBLE **** SORRY SOLD- PERHAPS IT'S THE CINDERELLA LINEAGE TO THE KENNEDY FAMILY LEGACY OR THOSE BIG SUICIDE DOORS BUT, THE BEAUTIFUL BIG LINCOLNS FROM 1961-1967 CARRY A SPECIAL ALLEGIANCE WITH CAR LOVERS WORLDWIDE...THEY ARE OFTEN CALLED "KENNEDY LINCOLNS" AND COLLECTORS... JUST GOTTA HAVE 'EM. THIS CAR WAS ORIGINALLY PURCHASED UNDER ACQUISITION BY A 3-TIME RETURN CUSTOMER HERE IN FLORIDA ABOUT 3.5 YEARS AGO. LIKE MANY OF OUR FRIENDS THEY MOVE ON TO A DIFFERENT CLASSIC CAR OR TRUCK AND WE WERE LUCKY ENOUGH TO HAVE A CHANCE TO BUY THIS CAR BACK. SETTING OUT TO FIND A RUST-FREE CONTINENTAL IS LIKE LOOKING FOR A BATTLESHIP THAT'S NEVER BEEN IN SALT WATER. AFTER WEEKS AND WEEKS OF ORIGINAL RESEARCH I WAS TOLD A STORY ABOUT THIS CAR.... ONE THAT WAS A METICULOUS 'UNFINISHED', CAR UNDER RESTORATION, LEFT WHEN THE OWNER PASSED ON. THE CAR WAS NEARLY DONE BUT, LACKED FINAL ASSEMBLY BY A FEW BITS AND PIECES. SIX WEEKS LATER, THIS DIAMOND WAS 'UNEARTHED', COMPLETED .....AND WHAT A JEWEL IT IS. FINISHED IN FLORENTINE GOLD WITH MATCHING MINT-ORIGINAL LEATHER IT IS ONE OF THE MOST STUNNING COLOR COMBINATIONS I HAVE EVER SEEN ON THIS MODEL. I STARTED OUT CHOOSING A NEW BLACK TOP BUT, THE COLOR JUST DIDN'T GO WELL WITH THIS SHADE OF GOLD PLUS, WE REMINDED OURSELVES OF THE HOT FLORIDA SUN, SO THE RESTO.SHOP OWNER SUGGESTED AND WE COLLECTIVELY OPTED OPTED FOR BONE WHITE.**** THIS BEAUTY IS A CALIFORNIA, BORN AND RAISED, LINCOLN THAT IS IN MINT ORIGINAL CONDITION SHOWING 43,211 MILES AND LOADED WITH ALL THE NEATEST FACTORY OPTIONS. IT WAS COMPLETELY RESTORED BY A CARING, LINCOLN SPECIALIST HERE IN SOUTH CENTRAL FLORIDA USING ALL NEW-OLD-STOCK ORIGINAL FORD PARTS STILL IN THEIR ORIGINAL BOXES. IT WAS THEN SKILLFULLY RE-PAINTED THE ORIGINAL COLOR FOR THE FIRST TIME. THE INTERIOR AND DOOR JAMBS ARE ALL EXC. ORIGINAL INCLUDING (INCREDIBLY) THE DARK FOREST GREEN MOUTON WOOL CARPETS. THE LOW MILE ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION WERE FRESHENED AND ALL THE ELECTRICS WERE REPLACED WITH NEW, STILL IN THE 'FOMOCO' BOX, INCLUDING THE SOFT TOP PADS WHICH CONTAIN CRUCIAL WIRES TO OPERATE THE ROBOTIC TOP. THE FINAL RESULT WAS PROFESSIONALLY (AND EXPENSIVELY) TWEAKED AND ADJUSTED BY A ROVING NATIONWIDE LINCOLN SPECIALIST.****ONLY THE 66-67 LINCOLNS CARRIED THE GLASS REAR WINDOW AND FRONT WHEEL DISC BRAKES HENCE, THEY ARE CONSIDERED THE HOLY GRAIL OF '61-'67 CONTINENTALS. ALL OF THE LINCOLNS OF THAT ERA CAME WITH AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION, POWER SEATS, POWER STEERING, POWER WINDOWS, FULL LEATHER INTERIOR, FULL COCKPIT CARPETING, ELECTRIC CLOCK, DUAL EXHAUST, HEATER/DEFROSTER, ROBOTIC- SOFT-TOP, AND A WINDSHIELD WASHER SYSTEM BUT, OUR CAR IS ADDITIONALLY EQUIPPED WITH FACTORY AIR CONDITIONING, TINTED WINDOWS, REMOTE MIRRORS, POWER WINDOW LOCKS, AND AM/FM "TRANSISTORIZED" RADIO WITH POWER ANTENNA.** THIS LINCOLN IS 514 OUT OF 3,180 BUILT IN 1966. COMPLETE WITH OWNERS MANUAL, SHOP MANUALS AND DIAGRAMS.CURRENT NADA CLASSIC GUIDE IS $58,000+ **WE ARE PROUD TO REPORT THIS GREAT CAR IS BEING OFFERED RESTORED TO THE PUBLIC FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE NEW.
