Vehicle description

Gateway Classic Cars of Scottsdale is delighted to feature this elegant 1961 Lincoln Continental 4-door convertible, known as one of the greatest and most memorable of the American "big-body" sedans, the Continental could claim to be the pinnacle of global automotive luxury standards in 1961. Marketed as America's first post-war 4-door convertible, this land barge of a Lincoln was in its fourth generation by the 1960s and features a Burgundy paintjob, suicide doors and a power-operated convertible top (not currently functioning reliably- please inquire for details) that folds away into a compartment behind the rear seats where a trunk would otherwise be located. This example has been owned by the same party for almost four decades which might explain the seemingly original appearance of this classic Ford luxury product. Powering this 4-door convertible, which weighs a whopping 5300lbs and has a 123-inch wheelbase, is a capable 430 CID V8 engine that was rated at 300hp from the factory. The mileage reading of a little over 81,000 also appears to be consistent with records. An automatic transmission completes the drivetrain, shifting this cool Continental to your destination in one of three speeds. As represented by the rest of this vehicle, the Cream colored leather interior with upscale Kind of Art Deco Trim and instrumentation on the dash looks remarkably original and has a multitude of power features to enjoy such as power windows, power locks, power seats and an AM radio. This car has been owned by the same family for it's entire life. This era of Lincoln Continental has gone down in automotive folklore as one of America's defining classic cars. They're large, powerful and stylish- everything that the rest of the world envied about the American lifestyle in the 1960s is present in this luxury 4-door convertible.
