Classic Car Overview

This 1959 Lincoln Mark IV Continental Convertible is an elegant luxury convertible that comes loaded with options! The Lincoln Continental nameplate made its initial debut back in 1940 and it was modeled after the custom-built 1939 Convertible Coupe driven by the President of Lincoln at the time, Edsel Ford. In the couple years that followed and for a few years following World War II, the Continental was one of Lincolns top-of-the-line models. Then suddenly, in 1949, the Continental was no more, replaced by the Cosmopolitan. A few years after that, the Ford Motor Company sought to introduce a new and even more premium brand above Lincoln. The resulting brand was Continental and Continentals first (and only) automobile was the Mark II, which was sold during the 1956 and 1957 model years. Then in 1958, the Continental was absorbed back into Lincoln as a new model with a brand new look. From nose to tail, the 58 Continental Mark III looked like a completely different car from the Mark II. Some of the highlights included a new slanted, dual headlight design, a brand new grille, an entirely new body, interior layout, and the availability of a powered retractable-style soft convertible top. In 1959, the new Mark IV Continental got a new name, reversing the Mark with roman numeral and Continental name, and, while it retained a similar silhouette of the Mark III, it did receive some modest updates. Up front the grille was refined to include a new criss-cross pattern. Down the sides, the side-spear was removed leading to cleaner side profile. In the rear, the taillight design was upgraded to include four taillights. In total, a mere 2,195 Mark IV Continental Convertibles were produced which makes this particular example quite a rare piece of automotive history. Under the hood on this 59 Lincoln Convertible is a 430 Cubic Inch V8 engine fed by a single 4 barrel carburetor that together were said to have created a whopping 350 horsepower when new. This Lincolns 430 V8 is mated to an automatic transmission which makes this 50s cruiser an easy car for just about anybody to drive. Exhaust exits the Lincoln motor via a dual exhaust setup that creates a wonderful throaty sound out of the rear. Because the Continental was Lincolns top of the line model, they came loaded with options. With power steering, manuvering this 5,000+ pound convertible in and out of a tight parking space at the local car show or ice cream parlor is a total breeze, easily accomplished with a single hand. Power brakes are another welcome feature on any massive 50s cruiser since it makes bringing this Mark IV Continental to a complete stop much easier. Riding on a set of wide whitewall tires paired with Turbine-style full wheel covers, this 59 Lincoln has an outstanding look parked at the local car show and cruising down the road. The black vinyl power convertible top is in wonderful condition and the power top and related mechanisms all operate smoothly, all with the simple push of a button. The chrome and brightwork around the exterior of this luxurious Lincoln looks great and further elevates the elegance of this 50s cruiser. The body of this 59 Mark IV has been correctly refinished in Presidential Black, completing the exterior look of the car. The interior of this 1959 Lincoln Mark IV Continental Convertible is gorgeous! The front and rear bench seats have been reupholstered in a two-tone color scheme of White and Black vinyl. Like the drivetrain, the interior also comes absolutely loaded with options! All five power windows, including the glass rear window, go up and down with the simple flick of a switch and they can all be disabled with the child safety lock. Anyone should be able to reach the pedals since the front seat is 4-way power adjustable. This 1959 Lincoln Continental also comes equipped with adjustable chrome outside mirrors and auto-dimming headlights. This Mark IV Continental also came equipped from the factory with air conditioning. The upholstered door panels, black carpeting, padded dash, and steering wheel are all in great shape and appear to remain in their stock configuration. The instrument cluster comes outfitted with a 120 MPH speedometer, ammeter, temperature gauge, fuel gauge, Travel Tuner AM radio, clock, and heater/defroster/air conditioning controls. An optional factory FM radio is mounted under the dash as well. Whether youre buying your first classic car or youre adding to your existing collection, this 1959 Lincoln Mark IV Continental Convertible would make an excellent choice.
