The flagship Lincoln model in 1963 was redesigned from the previous year with a new grille and rear panel and added rear legroom and importantly the cars electrical system was updated when Ford replaced the previous years generator with an alternator. This years model also earned its name in infamy as being the very same model car in which President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas, that very year. In 1961, the Continental replaced the Lincoln Capri and Premiere consolidating Lincoln into a single product line. The Lincoln Continental was the only 4 door convertible offered on the American market and the suicide doors that opened to the center and were hinged to the body instead of the center pillar were a natural hallmark of the car for the years to come and interestingly were originally a purely practical decision by the Lincoln engineers as the cars wheelbase was shorter than its predecessors and the doors were hinged from the rear to ease entry to the rear seats. The entire body of the car is welded into a single unit and an unprecedented number of long-life service components such as a fully sealed electrical system were added to the car and the car was thoroughly protected from corrosion by factory applied four coats of baked enamel. The solid construction, they were built so solidly that the car was heavier than any car from the Cadillac or Imperial line, boosted the cars reputation as both the finest and most handsome mass produced domestic automobile of its time.
This is a rare opportunity to own a great rare great daily driving and rust free example of a very well preserved original southern California 1967 Lincoln Continental Convertible with only very minor imperfections consistent with a mostly all original car of its age!
