"For 1966, a number of changes came to the Continental model line. Although bearing a strong resemblance to its predecessor, the 1966 Continental was given new exterior sheet metal and the interior was again redesigned, featuring the new options of a tape player and a tilt steering wheel. The Continental grew in size, becoming nearly 5 inches longer, an inch wider and nearly an inch taller. Curved side glass replaced flat glass and the V8 engine was expanded from 430�cu�in� to 462�cu�in .To improve the sales of the convertible, Lincoln added a glass rear window to the convertible top and improved the hydraulic system for opening the top and trunklid by adding a second pump, separating the two systems; the hydraulic solenoids were also removed from the car as well."
