This 1963 Lincoln Continental underwent a complete concours-level,
nut-and-bolt restoration with invoices totaling over $250,000.
Driven approximately 500 miles since its completion in 2020, it was
built using the best parts available, and the underside is as nice
as the top. This Lincoln was stripped down to bare metal, with over
500 hours spent in prep time alone. All the chrome pieces were
original and completely and professionally restored. The car was
blocked in three stages for razor-straight panels and was finished
in a custom-blended paint that was named Super Black with a House
of Kolor clear coat. A $40,000 custom leather interior, which was
completely removed and redone to high standards, included Dynamat,
all-new carpet, door panels, Lincoln-embossed emblem stitched on
the upper back seats and a custom leather-wrapped dash. While the
interior was being redone, all the gauges were removed and restored
as well. The door panels were the original factory option. An
Alpine sound system with custom focal speakers and a hidden
subwoofer complete the high-end quality sound system. This Lincoln
is powered by its fully restored and built 430ci V8 engine bored
0.30 over with modern fuel injection and a 4-speed automatic
transmission. The chassis that was taken down to bare metal, powder
coated and enhanced to drive like a modern Lincoln. Rounding out
the build is a set of custom-made 22-inch billet wheels designed to
resemble the original hubcaps.
