This 1964 Lincoln Continental was Roy Rogers and Dale Evans
personal car. It was purchased used by Roy in 1965 and they would
take it around town as well as go on long road trips between Apple
Valley and Los Angeles. The car was painted factory blue when Roy
bought it until he decided to have it painted a few years later.
Pete, a family friend was paid to take it for a paint job while Roy
was out of town. He instructed Pete to have it painted a pale
golden color, which, with its white top and interior, would have
made a perfect match with Trigger his horse. What he didn't know is
that Pete was colorblind! So, the blue Lincoln was supposed to be
painted a pale gold however became a Gleaming Canary Yellow. Except
for the paint job, mechanical maintenance, and a refurbished
convertible top, the car is close to original. Odometer reads just
over 100,000 miles (title reads mileage exempt) and considering it
has spent nearly 3 decades in the Roy Roger Museum, those miles are
a definite testimony how much Roy loved to drive this car!
