Classic Car Overview

Seeking a big and powerful yet comfortable cruiser? This Lincoln Continental may fill the bill. Made in Fords Wixom, Michigan factory (VIN code Y) on January 3, 1962, this sedan is dressed in Sultana White (code M). The paint and trim are in overall very good order. The bodywork is straight the engine bay is tidy and the chrome bumpers fit tightly to the body. This Conti rolls on 20-inch Mobsteel Detroit wheels wrapped in 40-series white striped radials. The tires and wheels are in all in very good order. The original rims, tires and hubcaps come with the purchase. So you can set the car back to stock if preferred. Under the forward-hinged hood is a 430 CID MEL V-8 engine (code H) with a 10.0:1 compression ratio and breathing via dual exhausts. Backing this motor is a three-speed automatic transmission (code 4) and a 3.00:1 rear end (code 1). Driver convenience features include power steering, power brakes, power windows, power locks and power seats. The gas tank was removed and coated. New fuel lines, claims and filters were installed on May of 2023 at a cost of $1,200.00. The red leather (code 85) front and rear bench seats, each with a fold-down armrest are in overall very good order but the front bench shows wear & crackage, but not ripped or torn. The red carpet and headliner are in satisfactory original shape. There is a three-spoke steering wheel that looks good while the red inner door panels and dashboard are in decent condition. Right front window operates from master switch. There is a column-mounted shift lever and a factory AM radio along with an under dash-mounted FM receiver that round out the interior. For 1962, a simpler front grille design with floating rectangles and a thin center bar replaced the heavy-gauge, Thunderbird-like, high mounted bumper of the 61. For the first time on a Lincoln since 1951, rear doors were rear-hinged (suicide doors). To alert drivers of open doors, Lincoln fitted the dashboard with a Door Ajar warning light as seen on many modern automobiles. Latching at the B-pillar with a vacuum-operated central locking system, convertibles used an abbreviated pillar while sedans were pillared hardtops. In the configuration, a thin B-pillar supported the roof structure while all four doors utilized frameless door glass in the style of a hardtop or convertible; the layout would become used by several Ford Motor Company sedans during the 1960s and 1970s. Due to the overlap of the front- and rear-door window weatherstripping on the four-door convertibles (with coach doors), to open the rear door when the front door was closed required that the rear-door window be slightly lowered first. This was accomplished automatically using sensors and relay-controlled logic-when the outside door latch button or inside handle was first pressed, the power-operated window lowered a few inches, then raised when the door was closed. Competition to this Lincoln in 1962 included Buicks Electra 225, Cadillacs Sedan de Ville, Chryslers New Yorker, Imperials Crown, Jaguars Mark X, Mercurys Monterey and Oldsmobiles 98 Town Sedan. If the idea of a mild, part-time project and a more-of-the-time big cruiser appeals to you, you should visit MotoeXotica Classic Cars today to check out this big Conti for yourself.
