For Sale: 1966 Lincoln Continental in Palmetto, Florida

Vehicle Description

1966 Lincoln Continental

Why This Vehicle is Special

The Continental is a series of personal luxury cars that was produced by Ford Motor Company and served as the flagship vehicle of Ford Motor Company for its entire production. For 1966, the fourth-generation Lincoln Continental underwent a second mid-cycle redesign to better compete against the Cadillac Coupe de Ville and the Imperial Crown Coupe.

The 1966 Lincoln Continental we have here at Skyway Classics is a low milage (66k), 2-door luxury classic finished in tan with a dark vinyl roof and is powered by a 460 cubic inch V8 backed by a C-6 automatic transmission and loaded with options.

Mechanical

The 460 cubic inch V8 engine is equipped with a four-barrel carburetor and was rated from the factory at 365 horsepower with the power being sent to the rear wheels via a C-6 three-speed automatic transmission.

The engine looks just as it did from the factory with its Ford Blue painted block and valve covers, and chrome air cleaner assembly as well as having all the correct parts on it like power steering, power brakes, air conditioning, factory cast iron exhaust, and sits in a clean and detailed engine compartment.

It rides on steel wheels that are fitted with factory Lincoln turbine-style wheel covers and wears thin whitewall tires.

Interior

The cabin is upholstered in burgundy leather with the split front bench seat with a folding front armrest with the matching full rear seat and is equipped with the usual luxury amenities including power windows, power locks, radio, and air conditioning which is controlled from a panel mounted to the left of the steering column.

Instrumentation is housed in individual square recesses, and includes a 120-mph speedometer, analog clock, fuel level indicator, oil pressure gauge, and coolant temperature gauge, with just about 66k miles shown on the five-digit odometer.

Exterior

The Lincoln is based on the contemporary Thunderbird platform with a slightly longer wheelbase in 1966. Ours is finished in a subtle shade of tan and features a darker shade vinyl top in good condition too.

While following much of the 1965 restyling (distinguished in '66 largely by a new grille and the addition of "Continental" to the hood), the 1966 Lincoln Continental wore an all new body, growing 5 inches longer (implemented primarily in the rear seats to accommodate more legroom), and nearly an inch taller and wider.

Curved side glass made its return and it offered an engine sized comparably to those in the Imperial (440 cubic inches in 1966) and Cadillac (429 cubic inches, 472 cubic inches in 1968), the 430 V8 was enlarged to 462 cubic inches.
It retains the Continental script, that great iconic styling flows gracefully along the long lines of this two-door from front to the rear, it has shiny front and rear bumpers and looks long, low, and sleek, just like the designers were looking for.

Conclusion

The 1966 Lincoln Continental we have here at Skyway Classics is a low mileage example of what luxury and performance cars were all about back in the sixties.

They exude the feeling of gracefulness as well as performance with that big 460 cubic inch engine pulling you down the road.

Don't miss out on this green beauty of an elegant car, come see it today.
