1965 Lincoln Continental

Lincoln is reaching into a lot of its heritage these days, hich is reminding us all of some great cars. Arguably there's no better one than the Continental four-door convertible. And in the case of this 1965 model, verything represents the icon perfectly - right down to its factory-correct elegant color combination.It was quite a daring feat to put four doors on a convertible, nd especially so with those rear-hinged suicide doors. What's amazing is that the designers wrapped this bold idea in a modern design that showed restraint from being too outrageous with sheetmetal. That's how an elegant icon was born. This one is covered its original shade of code Q Huron Blue paint, o it's the subtle and sophisticated choice for a warm summer day with friends. The slab sides 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, hich makes having those big bumpers, ide horizontal grille, nd original slotted hubcaps so essential. While you'll love to have the top down, he newer dark blue convertible top really makes for a nice complementing contrast in color.Open any one of the iconic suicide doors, nd you're greeted to an amazing-looking light blue interior. With the top down the interior and exterior colors complement each other so well it almost seems tough to see where the sheetmetal ends and the seatbacks begin. A premium Lincoln means plenty of features. This includes power seats, ower windows, ower convertible top, nd air conditioning that's been converted to R-134a. Even the original AM radio is still in place, ut there's a CD changer hidden out of the way so you can still listen to modern tunes without ruining the period-correct appearance. From behind the wheel the full gauge package looks amazing and highly stylized. Keen eyes can even spot the rare auto-dimmer for the headlights in the middle of the dashboard.The sporty clamshell hood gives a great view of the large 430 cubic-inch MEL V8. This is the correct motor for the era, nd the big black air cleaner on top lets people know that you are keeping this cool cruiser original. There's plenty of power, nd 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.
