Third generation (1958-1960)
For the 1958 model year, to build a better business case for the Continental, the separate Ford Motor Company division was redesigned. To justify its future, Continental remained the flagship of Ford Motor Company; instead of rivaling Rolls-Royce, the division was repackaged as the Ford Motor CompanyThe reputation for "excessive styling" is perhaps ironic given the enormous amount of styling talent that was connected with the development and modification of Marks of this vintage.
Nicknamed the "slant-eyed monster" in the Ford design studio, the Mark III would become one of the largest sedans ever built by Ford Motor Company.The 1958-1960 Continental Mark III-V are built upon the same chassis utilized by the Lincoln Capri and Lincoln Premiere. In a break from Ford, Mercury, and Edsel, Lincoln adopted unibody construction for the first time.
For 1959, the Continental Mark IV saw a minor restyling, with the elimination ofDagmarsfrom the front bumpers. Coinciding with the end of the Continental Division, "Continental III" fender badging isreplaced by separate "Continental" and "Mark IV" badging. The grille is restyled slightly, with the headlight clusters integrated into the egg-crate grille.Alongside the Mark III, IV, and V, there are two additional models of the third-generation Continental.
In 1959, Lincoln added the Limousine and Town Car body styles; the latter marked the first use of the Town Car name by Lincoln. Available only in black, both versions were built with a model-specific formal rear roof line with a padded roof; the Limousine featured a partition between the front and rear seats. The roof line of Town Car and Limousine was designed in an effort to avoid extending the wheelbase; the deletion of the reverse-slant rear window allowed for the rear seat to be moved rearward several inches.
The 1959-1960 Town Car and Limousine are among the rarest Lincoln vehicles ever sold; only 214 examples of the $9,200 Town Car were produced and only 83 examples of the $10,200 Limousine were produced.
