There is no better way to showcase timeless grace. Period. This 1964 Lincoln Continental convertible has one of the best presentations showcasing one of the most sophisticated color combinations around. So when it also has the right features, like its original 430 V8, and A/C, you're looking at the best of everything.
The appeal of this car is black and white, literally. Black is tough to get correct, but actually the key to a top-notch restoration like the one seen here is quite simple. All you need to do is invest heavily in the best paints and a very professional hand applying it. So now every time you take this sunshine friendly-droptop out for a cruise, the light radiates off the dark finish like they covered it in a black mirror. And these pictures show how evenly the light rolls off every surface, which means there was obviously plenty invested in the body, too, to make sure this black had the best canvas possible. The seemingly miles of clean side panels give way to chrome accent lines that run the length of the car. The rest of the brightwork is nearly as important to keeping this convertible complete, which makes having those big bumpers, wide horizontal grille, and original slotted hubcaps so essential. S0, no matter if you have the top up or down, the pristine contrasting white helps give an overall sophistication like a finely pressed tuxedo.
Open any one of the iconic suicide doors, and you're greeted to an amazing-looking interior, and when you get behind the driver's seat, the black and white theme is even continued on the wheel. Beyond that is a highly stylized dashboard that treats auxiliary gauges as jewelry, and even has the rare Vertically Adjustable Steering Column. A premium Lincoln means plenty of features. This also includes leather seats, power locks, and a power adjusting front bench. We know you're going to love the power windows and power convertible top too. When these are used together, you never have to leave the driver's seat to go from enclosed luxury to a wind-in-your-hair experience. And since there's air conditioning, you can even stay cool with the top down all summer long.
The sporty clamshell hood gives a great view of the large 430 cubic-inch MEL V8. This is the correct motor for the era, and it is supposed to be original to the car. The big black air cleaner on top lets people know that you are keeping this cool cruiser original. There's plenty of power, and the dual exhaust even lets out a muscular howl when you really want to get moving. But this Lincoln will never betray its easy-going luxurious nature. The three-speed automatic transmission makes for a fantastic highway cruiser. The suspension soaks up bumps without rattling the body, and thanks to that long wheelbase, the ride is effortlessly smooth. Power brakes and power steering complete the vintage and effortless driving package.
These Continental convertibles were loaded, and reserved for only the highest echelons of society, so they made only made 3,328 of these in '64. This one has a stellar presentation right down to its owner's manual. So when you realize how few can still pull off this level of sophistication today, you understand how rare a treat this is.
