1964 Lincoln Continental
Back in the 60s if you were a president, politician, or celebrity in a parade there was a good chance you were going to be riding in a Lincoln Continental. These cars were a top of the line luxury vehicle that was packed with all the bells and whistles available during that time period. They were produced for 49 years and saw multiple redesigns throughout time. The 4th generation, like what you see here, started in 1961 and spanned until 1969. Lincoln previously marketed the Capri, Premiere, and Continental Mark series but that all changed with this generation as they were all replaced by the 4 door Lincoln Continentals. These years marked a huge redesign for the car where luxury features with a clean look was the goal. Easily identified by the rear suicide doors, these cars always stand out in a crowd. They were very popular new and still continue to be a very popular car even today. This 64 Continental is originally from Pheonix, Arizona and has remained in 1 family since the 70's. Prior to that the car was used as a parade car for Arizona Governor Jack Williams. About 3 years ago the car was sent to Vintage Auto in Old Saybrook Connecticut where it was gone through and a lot of components restored. It took approximately 1 year to complete and was very well done. It was concluded prior to restoring that the car had 11,000 original miles which is confirmed by both the odometer and history of being garaged for many many years. The body is very solid with no rust and was repainted in its original Turquoise color. All of the chrome and stainless is straight and still has a great shine. A lot of the components like the grill are all original and by its condition you can tell how well this car was cared for. The car rides on its original wheels/hubcaps which have been wrapped in brand new white wall tires. The convertible top was redone as well with all new equipment so that it raises/lowers like new.
The drivetrain of the car is all original and every effort was made to keep it as original as possible. It has been left untouched and a majority of the components are what were on the car from the factory. It is powered by a 430c.i. MEL engine that runs very strong and has no oil leaks. It is paired with the original Automatic transmission which moves through the gears with ease. Being a luxury car you can bet it is fully loaded with Power Brakes, Power Steering, Air Conditioning, Power Windows, and Power Seats all of which are working properly.
With the rebuild the car received an all new leather interior done in a Powder Blue color. The upholstery work is in excellent shape and shows no signs of wear since being redone. All of the original dash components are present including the original radio.
This is one cool classic and these Continentals are very sought after cars. This is a very clean low mileage example and all of the work done on it was completed by a restoration shop that specializes in these cars.
