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.

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
