This 1962 Lincoln Continental has been restored by the legendary, late Jerry Capizzi, a Ford/Lincoln restoration extraordinaire whose passion and detail-oriented work is beloved. Mr. Capizzi was attentive to OEM-correctness to achieve a factory-like restoration – in short, when an enthusiast seeks a correct and proper example, Jerry’s cars are at the forefront. For those seeking an extraordinary Continental, you have found it.
This Continental presents in its factory color combination of Powder Blue over Silver Blue Leather. Benefitting from long-term, private collector ownership, this Continental has been preserved wonderfully – the paintwork is clean and vibrant, brightwork searing, and the interior looking as though it is 1962 again. Delicate pieces, such as the intricate grill, body length trims are in excellent condition.
The iconic “suicide doors” open to reveal an exceptional and correct interior. This Continental was outfitted to the maximum with desirable options – 6-way power seating, air conditioning, leather interior, speed control, and so much more. Throughout the interior, wood panel appliques and soft leather adorn the seating and trimmings. Known for his utilization of NOS components, the interior is a sharp example of Jerry’s attention to the little details.
Open the European-esque clamshell hood and reveal the massive 430 cu. in. V8 engine, running smooth and quiet. Correctness continues and abounds, right down to the hose clamps and fasteners. Benefitting from careful ownership, the freshly rebuilt carburetor offers smooth operation and motoring for those who desire to see such a piece of art in motion. For those seeking to attend the show fields, you will be gladly welcomed.
This 1962 Lincoln Continental has been restored by one of the Lincoln community’s finest; do not miss this opportunity and call today.
