 Vehicle Description
If youve been paying any attention at all to pop culture, you know that the iconic Lincoln Continental sedan is red hot right now. Everyone from pro athletes to rappers to movie stars are snatching up the stylish cruisers the same way young hipsters are dressing themselves in skinny ties and tapered suits to emulate the hottest shows on TV. Slick big-body coupes like this 1966 Lincoln Continental are hard to come by on the market these days, so make haste or drown in FOMO.br / br / Whats immediately evident the moment you gaze upon this Lincoln is how the design offers a clean, chiseled look that still looks great today. A few years back, Lincoln rolled out a concept car (the MK9) that borrowed a lot of this cars styling cues, and we have to say, they might be in a better place by running with that particular ball. Two-door coupes have made a roaring comeback in recent years, and they owe all that renewed goodwill to the iconic designs of cars like this 65. The Code Q Medium Blue Metallic paint is likely an older respray, but it still looks right on the chiseled flanks of the big Conti. Thats a lot of sheetmetal to prep, and yes, there are a few areas that might benefit from a cut-and-buff, but at this price, our advice is to just get in and enjoy being the center of attention. We really dig things like the chrome strips that run along the tops of the fenders and doors in an unbroken line, the highly detailed horizontal grille, and, of course, the gigantic doors that turn the door handles into design statements. The chrome is in very good original condition, including both front and rear bumpers, the glass in limo-tinted for added privacy, and all the Continental emblems are intact, just in case people dont recognize the iconic shape.br / br / And if you think the body is the peak of retro-cool, wait until you see the interior. The handsome two-tone upholstery is almost entirely original, with cloth and leather decorating the seats, ornately detailed door panels with awesome chrome and wood accents, and stainless steel and chrome accents throughout the entire cabin that look expensive and upscale. Every time I sit in one of these beautifully appointed Contis I feel the need to pour an aged bourbon and read a little Norman Mailer, the restrained opulence can be intoxicating like that. The carpets are plush, too, insulating the air-tight cabin, and although youll find some slight wear inside in some of the higher-traffic areas, theres nothing major that would cause concern or diminish the aesthetics. The cockpit ahead of the driver is the brain of the operation, featuring a wide speedometer, a row of idiot lights, the temperature controls and radio that look symmetrically identical, and that elegant thin steering wheel atop a tilt column. Controls on the drivers armrest are a nice touch, and as a top-of-the-line luxury car, everything is standard, from power windows, locks, and seats to A/C (needs to be serviced) and the aforementioned original radio. The dash pad doesnt appear to have been cooked in the sun and only has one crack down the center, the chrome only has minor pitting, and the headliner above is taut and in great shape as well. Out back, the rear seats show only slight wear and the cavernous trunk is beautifully tailored with matching carpets and a full-size spare. br / br / Power is delivered by a 462 cubic inch V8, the largest in Fords arsenal in 1966, and it was specifically picked for the newly designed 4th generation Continental to rival the Imperial Crown Coupes and Coupe de Villes slightly smaller respective displacements. Believed to be the original block, its a torque-heavy monster that runs great with a smooth disposition, clearly the result of good service and care throughout the years. It isnt detailed for show, of course, but the proper Ford Blue paint on the valve covers and air cleaner gives it a purposeful, no-nonsense look that we can certainly appreciate. It fires up with a muscular rumble from the updated Magnaflow dual exhaust system, and pulls effortlessly on the highway where it glides over bumps like a hovercraft. It shifts well and the underside, while not shiny and perfect, also shows no signs of critical rust, which is very important in the unit-body Continental. Flashy 20-inch US Mag chrome wheels wonderfully contradict the typical Lincoln understatement, and it sits on newer 245/35/20 low-profile performance radials.br / br / This is a heck of a lot of car for the money, and as it sits its turn-key ready, or it could easily be kicked up a notch or two into the showcar stratosphere.
