Interesting information regarding the 1966 Lincoln Convertible. please read below.
Lincoln Continental is a model name for a luxury car marketed by the Lincoln division of Ford Motor Company. Along with the Zephyr. the Continental is a Lincoln nameplate that has seen use in a sub-division. the short-lived Continental Division of 1956–1957. As a Lincoln. the Continental nameplate saw use for 49 years. from 1939 to 1948 (skipping World War II) and from 1958 to 2002 (skipping 1981).
Serving as the Lincoln flagship for its first three generations. the Continental name conveyed special cachet in the product line. In the 1961 redesign of the Lincoln line. the three-model line was consolidated down to the Continental. which served as the sole Lincoln sedan for the next 16 years. With the exception of the Lincoln Mark VIII. all versions of the Lincoln Mark Series of the personal luxury cars are based on a corresponding generation of the Continental.
History of the 1961-1969 Lincoln Continental
The 1961 Lincoln Continental was based upon a stretched version of a proposed 1961 Thunderbird two-door hardtop that had been rejected as too classy and not sporty enough for the typical Thunderbird buyer. The 1958 recession and Edsel debacle had severely injured the Ford Motor Company. While the four-seat Thunderbird was a huge success. the Lincoln division was in danger of being culled. Designers and engineers worked hard at making a new. distinctive and profitable Lincoln; they succeeded admirably with these cars. A decision was made to build the cars as four-door vehicles. but a convertible was desired and there was the continuing mandate to share major underbody designs with the Thunderbird. In fact. until 1968. all Lincoln Continentals were four-door vehicles. In an effort to limit the size of the 1961 cars. “suicide” rear-hinged rear doors were selected. The length of the wheelbase was a relatively short 123” until the car was stretched to 126” from 1964 through 1969.
The 1966 Model has proved to be one of the most remarkable and collectible autos of the era. These cars may have been physically shorter than the prior-generation cars. but they were almost equally heavy. Convertible versions weighed 300 pounds more than hardtops. due to the need to brace the unit body. Engines are characteristically massive. starting out with 430 cubic inches and 320 hp in 1961. with a bore and stroke increase to 462 cubic inches and a power increase to 340 hp in 1966. The 1969 car is a “hybrid” that utilized the all-new 460 cubic inch. 365 hp Lincoln V-8 in the carry-over unit body. All such cars are considered collectible.
