The new Continentals most recognized trademark, front-opening rear suicide doors, was a purely practical decision. The new Continental rode on a wheelbase of 123 inches (3,100 mm), and the doors were hinged from the rear to ease ingress and egress. When the Lincoln engineers were examining the back seats that styling had made up, the engineers kept hitting the rear doors with their feet. Hinging the doors from the rear solved the problem. The doors were to become the best-known feature of 1960s Lincolns.
We do not have much information about the Lincoln. Other than a paint job, it doesnt look like any restoration has been done.
