The Lincoln Continental was produced from 1939 to 1948 and again from 1956
to 2002. The Continental was a distinctively styled, highly equipped,
luxury car. Its name conveyed prestige. This generation of Continental is
favored by collectors and has appeared in many motion pictures, such as The
Matrix, The Last Action Hero, and the Inspector Gadget films. It has also
appeared in the television series Pushing Daisies, and recently in the
opening sequence of the television series Entourage.
The fourth generation Continental's most recognized trademark, front
opening rear doors, was a purely practical decision. The doors were hinged
from the rear when Lincoln engineers kept hitting the doors with their feet
when examining the back seats. The suicide doors were to become the
best-known feature of 1960s Lincolns. The Continental was the first postwar
four-door convertible from a major U.S. manufacturer.
Vanguard Motor Sales is proud to present this, two owner, 1966 Lincoln

spectator at the car shows, and you are ready to get some attention, this
is the car for you. With the suicide doors, brand new Gangster white wall
tires mounted on the original wheels, and a power hide-away convertible top
that works without hesitation, you will be turning heads wherever you go.

paint isn't perfect, but it is nice and shines up great. The chrome is in
average condition. The undercarriage is solid, as you can see from the
pictures. There aren't any holes in the pans or frame rot. The squared-off
grille houses the headlights, and sits above the chrome bumper, which

fitted with a ribbed chrome grille on each side, and set in the rear
Pop the hood and you'll find the 462ci big block motor, with 80k original

Inside this convertible you will find the original black leather interior.
The walnut-paneling on the doors ads to the prestige look. Front factory
seat belts with retractors, a tilt wheel, and both power seat and windows
make for one comfortable ride. The A/C is currently inoperable, but who
needs A/C when you can put the top down?

The History of Lincoln
Henry Leland, a former manager of the Cadillac division of General Motors,
and his son, Wilfred Leland, formed the Lincoln Motor Company in August,
1917. Leland named the new company after Abraham Lincoln, his hero and for
whom he cast a vote in 1864. Lincoln's first source of revenue came from
assembling Liberty aircraft engines, using cylinders supplied by Ford Motor
Company, to fulfill World War I government contracts.
After the war, the Lincoln factories were retooled to manufacture luxury
automobiles. Ford Motor Company purchased the Lincoln Motor Company in
1922, but Lincoln continued to operate as a somewhat separate company from
Ford through early 1940. On April 30, 1940 the Lincoln Motor Company became
the Lincoln Division of Ford Motor Company
At the direction of Henry's son Edsel, in 1923 several body styles were
introduced, that included two- and three-window, four-door sedans and a
phaeton that accommodated four passengers. They also offered a
two-passenger roadster and a seven-passenger touring sedan and limousine,
which was sold for $5,200. A sedan, limo, cabriolet and town car were also
offered by coachbuilders Fleetwood, Derham and Dietrich, and a second
cabriolet was offered by coachbuilder Brunn.
As the brand grew it developed several memorable vehicles, the Zephyr, the
Continental Mark II, the Lincoln Continental and recently the ubiquitous

Hey everyone, I just wanted to say thanks for bearing with me and the lack
of uploading lately. I have a ton of videos to upload including vintage,
exotics, new models, and some unique things to come. I have recently moved
into a new house for my 4th year pharmacy school rotations and have been
packing, unpacking, and dealing with all of this for a while. Now I'm
finally able to slowly start getting back into the groove of things. I
will also begin working on a new update video fairly soon to let you all
know what has been happening lately. Thanks a bunch and enjoy the future

vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel

you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion

wasn't time to clean it up good.
Abes Lincoln - 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC 32 Valve DOHC 4.6 V8 Hot Rod Luxury
In honor of President Lincoln's birthday, February 12th, I thought I'd post
this video of his namesake, the Lincoln Mark VIII. When Henry Leland
started Lincoln Motor Company in 1917, he named it after our famous
President. This Lincoln has the monochromatic trim all the way around, an
elegant leather interior, and a 32 Valve DOHC 4.6 V8 under the hood. These
cars really do offer luxury and performance in one complete package.
Perhaps it would be the choice of our beloved President, if he were still
alive today. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!
