And this white Lincoln Continental "Land Yacht" floats into dealerships for sale.

This Lincoln has now been wrapped in Satin White. This is your chance to own a piece of all original American History. For 1973, the Lincoln Continental was brought into compliance with federal crash regulations as it was fitted with a 5-mph front bumper. While many vehicles underwent significant revisions to comply with the regulation, the Continental was able to meet the standard by moving its front bumper several inches forward and fitting it with rubber-tipped impact over-riders. The rear bumper was modified in a similar manner, with a 2 1/2 mph rating; in total, the Continental gained nearly 5 inches in length.
