1962 Lincoln Continental
Convertible Car for sale by Baltria Vintage Auto Gallery in Saint Charles, Illinois 60174
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
The 4th generation Continental was introduced in 1961 as Lincoln's lone production model and was available in sedan or 4-door convertible trim. The convertible was especially unique because it implemented hidden B-pillars, as well as a power top which disappeared under the rear-hinged decklid when not in use. Suicide doors were also incorporated and became a staple of this vehicle's appearance - in fact, no other American car manufactured since WWII would feature both a convertible top and four doors. The Continental rode on an extended unibody chassis derived from the 1961 Ford Thunderbird. Power was supplied by a 430 cid V8 and sent through a 3-speed Twin-Range Turbo-Drive automatic transmission. Standard features included: automatic choke, automatic retracting rear door windows (convertible only), cigarette lighters, dual exhausts, electrical windshield washer, electric clock, folding center armrests, heater/defroster, hood ornament, hydraulic windshield wipers, large-capacity instrument panel ash tray, loop pile carpeting, parking brake warning light, power brakes, power fabric convertible top, power steering, power windows, power-operated door locks, rear door ajar warning light, three-spoke steering wheel, walnut veneer adorned interior panels (door/instrument), and white sidewall tires. A leather interior option was also available. For the 1962 model year a simplified front grille design was adopted. This particular example features a black leather interior that is free of cracks or tears, six-way power seat, and front seat belts. The 5 digit odometer reads "70009".
