This 1962 Lincoln Continental defines cool patina style. After all,
it has the right touches of worn-in originality. But the rebuilt
V8, upgraded wheels/tires, and luxury features inside keep it a
true cruiser from day one.
The factory-correct Riviera Turquoise is a premium pastel kind of
style that looks good on a classic suicide door Lincoln. This even
appears to be mostly the original application. But this is no
country club classic. The overall finish and patina give this a fun
rat rod style - especially since this sits on a mean set of 20-inch
KMC wheels with cool whitewall tires. We can understand how some
may see the value price for a Continental with straight panels and
complete trim as a great starting point for your personal project.
But there's also something quite attractive about how this classic
Lincoln is presented with plenty of street machine style today.
There's just something undeniably awesome about showing off the
suicide door look, and all four doors operate with confidence. And
when you do look inside there's more of the tasteful turquoise.
Just like the exterior, the interior has a highly original kind of
style. There are some areas to improve if you want a classic
showstopper. But the patina cruiser style is really shown off well
with the condition of the leather seats. The full presentation is
quite complete, and you still have desirable luxury features, like
power windows. Plus, there are the well-placed additions, like the
auxiliary gauges that let you keep an eye on the motor when out on
the road. And since this is a classic you'll want to drive, the
retro-style AM/FM stereo with iPod input upgrades the music.
The sporty forward tilt hood gives a great view of the large 430
cubic-inch MEL V8. The clean black style is a clear indication of
the comprehensive motor rebuild that happened in 2020. So it's a
big V8 that loves to fire up eagerly, and it makes a nice tune out
of the newer dual exhaust. This has the right features to hit the
road with a smooth-shifting three-speed automatic transmission, a
supple ride, power steering, and power brakes with front discs.
Complete with build receipts and service manuals, this is the kind
of classic that has a cool rat rod style today. Or maybe such a
complete car with such a strong/fresh powerhouse has you thinking
about an awesome restoration. This Continental lets you choose your
own adventure...but only if you're first to grab this deal. Call
