1960 Lincoln Continental Convertible Top Retracting and Erecting
There are many video clips of retractable Fords and 4-door Lincoln
convertible tops on Youtube but no 1958-1960 Lincolns. So here's a clip
showing the convertible top in action. These cars are over 19 feet in
length, weigh in at about 5400 pounds and are of unitbody construction. The
reverse slant glass rear window opens and closes electrically and the whole
rear window frame is pulled down into the car, taking the top with it. The
tops locks to the windshield header by electrically driven screws. With the
top crammed in the storage compartment there is still a hugh trunk behind
it, unlike the Fords with their small luggage tubs and the 4-door Lincolns
with very little storage.
