This 1966 Lincoln Continental Convertible is a unique, four door design with a smooth 462 cubic inch(7.6l) V8 and hydraulically operated top. We have put some miles on this car and were pleasantly surprised by the car’s high-level of preservation and functionality. The car has an extensive list of power features, from the three-way adjustable front bench to the powered front vent windows, all of which are working. The hydraulic top works smoothly as well. In addition to offering a true six-seat open air experience, the top’s elaborate operation provides a spectacle as it opens and closes. The car’s chrome and stainless trim are straight and generally in very good condition, though the rubber trim panel between the trunk and rear bumper is split. The interior appears to be all-original, and shows virtually no wear on the vinyl seating surfaces and light wear on the carpets. The push-button radio and climate control systems work, as do the six power windows. The automatic transmission shifts smoothly, and the big inch V8 pulls strong throughout the rev range. We replaced the exhaust manifolds with correct reproduction units because of an exhaust leak, and befitting of a full-size luxury car the car now runs very quietly, with minimal noise transmitted into the cabin even with the top down. This is a well preserved, turn-key continental convertible that would serve you well for top-down occasions.
