In the heyday of American luxury. the mantras 'bigger is better' and 'more is better' were alive and well. Cars from Cadillac. Lincoln and Imperial were large. isolated. came equipped with massive torque rich motors and provided an extremely comfortable ride that was second only to a cruise ship. This 1966 Continental Coupe is a spectacular survivor that has been immaculately maintained by two owners throughout its entire 46 year existence. With a solid body. an all-original drivetrain. and a lavish interior. it mixes one of America's biggest V8s with the arctic-cool class that only a 60s Lincoln can deliver. If you're one of the many enthusiasts who's always dreamed of owning a big American cruiser that's high on style and loaded with comfort. we have the car for you!

Manufactured in Wixom. Michigan; sold in Summit. New Jersey; and originally owned by Lieutenant Colonel Jose Diaz of Annandale. Virginia. this classy Continental coupe is a 37. 80 mile two-owner survivor that presents well and performs great! As you can probably tell. the car still displays most of its original Huron Blue paint. and despite the character you'd expect a half-century old single stage finish to acquire. remains in outstanding condition. Under that paint. solid body panels are straight and rust-free. build gaps are still at factory standards and. judging by the car's slick appearance. it's probably been subjected to a downright militant maintenance schedule.
By 1966 Lincoln was facing two problems. First and foremost their flagship Continental was getting a bit long in the tooth. And secondly the brand was having a hard time luring affluent. Cadillac-bound luxury buyers into the Ford family. They remedied both of those problems with brand new sheetmetal and the official introduction of this car; the fourth generation Continental coupe. At the front of the car. a traditional 'simple square' grille floats behind bright halogen headlights and a sculpted chrome bumper that's complete with newly re-integrated parking lights. On top of that grille. a new "CONTINENTAL" script is perfectly centered below a 'four point' Lincoln emblem; and at the sides of that grille stainless capped. knife-edge fenders begin a solid. slab-sided profile. At the top of the car. an original vinyl top frames a familiar curved windshield which is bordered by straight stainless trim and cleared by satin stainless wipers. Below that windshield an original power antenna functions just as Henry Ford intended; and behind that windshield. a chrome remote driver's mirror perfectly complements factory tinted side glass and stainless trimmed back glass. At the sides of the car. a conservative combination of ornate and functional items provides the timeless appearance 60s Lincolns are known for. Swept fender trim. dent-free rocker moldings and original door edge guards ensure that all contact points are protected from renegade road debris. And original door handles. polished original fender trim. mostly original Lincoln emblems and completely original "CONTINENTAL" fender scripts add just the right amount of flash and detail. At the back of the car. knife-edged fenders hang small reflectors above a second sculpted bumper that's complete with clear reverse lamps. Inside that bumper. simple square tail lights are stylish. wide and function just as well as the day they left the showroom. And above that bumper. a fourth 'four point' Lincoln emblem is mounted horizontally to hide the car's trunk lock cylinder.
Part of Lincoln's 60s appeal was their rock solid safety. and marketing for the fourth generation Continental often boasted more weight than both Cadillac and Imperial. Naturally. a big luxurious car needs a big torque-rich motor; and at 340 horsepower and 485 lb. /ft. of silky smooth grunt. this coupe's numbers matching 462 cubic inch MEL V8 fits the bill just perfectly! Highly original. the engine bay features correct markings and is in excellent condition throughout. It's not concours by any means. but it is incredibly tidy and has obviously been well-maintained from day one. Fresh Ford Blue paint covers the freshly tuned engine and freshly decaled air cleaner. which supplies air to a fully rebuilt Carter 4-barrel carburetor. All the major service items are in 100% functional condition. including the factory AC. tagged Autolite Sta-Ful battery. Autolite coil. new electronic distributor and fresh Carquest suppression cables. The satin black inner fenders are solid. the firewall is in excellent condition. and all the other places you'd think rust would hide are instead clean and untouched. I'd venture to say this Lincoln is every bit as road ready and powerful as it was back in 1966!
For 1966. the Continental was equipped with a specially prepared version of Ford's reliable and sturdy C6 3-speed automatic transmission. This coupe's original C6 drives a mild set of 3. 00 gears which provide effortless high-speed highway cruising. That fully-sorted drivetrain rides on a factory undercarriage that. like the car's engine bay. is clean and honest. And in the middle of the floors. a fresh factory replacement exhaust system provides quiet. confident motoring. Stops are handled by power front disc and rear drum brakes which are in good condition and show no signs of rot. Turns come courtesy of factory power steering that works hard to transform Titanic-size radiuses into tug boat-size rotations. And at the corners of the car. fresh 235/75 Firestone whitewalls spin 15 inch steel wheels around original satin-finished hubcaps. Trust me. you've never experienced highway cruising unless you've been in a car like this. Between its powerful V8. cavernous interior and solid. weighty suspension. it's the perfect environment for long road trips and scenic cross-country adventures. And over the past few years. the car's previous owner executed many small detail repairs which ensure this Lincoln will continue to be a competent road warrior for years to come.
Speaking of that cavernous interior. open the car's well-aligned doors and you'll find a well-maintained cockpit that's both stylish and comfortable. The six-way power front and manual rear bench seats are firm and supple. with no signs of age or even so much as a frayed edge. Above those seats. a taut headliner is stretched between bright stainless pillar trim. At the sides of those seats. ornate and equally pristine door panels hang exquisite wood trim below modernist chrome buttons. And at the bottom of those seats. like-new carpet rides under original rubber floor mats. Modern conveniences such as power windows. power vent windows. power door locks. air conditioning and an original restored AM/FM 8-track stereo all look good. function properly and add a nice level of convenience to an already satisfying driving experience. In front of the driver. a stylish chrome steering wheel spins a black rim around a chrome column shifter and a pristine dash that's complete with a fully functional NOS clock. And behind the cockpit a large. carpeted trunk props what may very well be the car's original spare tire between a large storage bin and an original decklid decal.
Documentation for this classy Lincoln cruiser includes an original order form. an original window sticker. original dealer paperwork. an original owner's manual. original warranty books. an original warranty card. the first owner's original financing papers from the Pentagon Credit Union. and various maintenance and service receipts.
You simply won't find more car for your money than this super cool Lincoln. It's stylish. comfortable. reliable. and still commands a lot of respect on the highway. Don't miss your opportunity to own one of the nicest all original Continentals on the planet!About this auction & rk motors charlotte
