Beautiful paint, a supple leather interior, and powerful V8 heart headline this classic. So the fact that it's on an iconic 1961 Lincoln Continental four-door convertible means this is rolling opulence that will keep people talking long after you pull away.

This classic has an amazing design, but that might not be what first caught your eye. The Burgundy paint is a fresh application where you can really see they invested in quality. The metallic element pops in the sunlight to make this convertible truly stunning. And the modern clearcoat finish is the ideal way to add extra definition to the crisp lines on the hood, trunk, and fender flares. In fact, take some extra time to really see how the light rolls evenly across this car. It's going to have you finding every excuse you can just to get out and drive on sunny days. For those times when the skies do turn gray, the burgundy paint is also a tastefully dark tone to go nicely with the black convertible top. And of course, a classic like this needs chrome. The designers understood elegance with their use of brightwork and didn't go overboard like other 1960s machines. Instead, they added sophistication in the right places, like the well-fitting bumpers and an accent line that runs along the fender tops along the full-length of the car. It is truly an elegant icon.

People are going to be asking you to show off the iconic suicide doors, and so you'll be quite happy with their quality smooth operation. And when people peek inside, they'll see an amazing-looking black interior. So you get the right combo of burgundy and black no matter if the roof is up or down. In fact, you are likely going to want to show off the interior plenty, because there was a recent investment here where you can just see how fresh and supple the leather upholstery is. You also have the right powered luxury features, like power windows, a power convertible top, and a power front seat. Even the classic AM radio still powers on to crank out tunes. It all makes for an impressive vintage package that upholds the premium Lincoln image.

The sporty forward-tilting hood gives a great view of the large 430 cubic-inch V8. This has a stock look, right down to the big black air cleaner on top. But the overall tidiness is also a clue to the well-respected and maintained setup. That's also why it fires up easily, idles nicely, and the three-speed automatic transmission has a smooth operation. This makes for a terrific cruising package, especially with power steering and the Lincoln's legendary smooth ride.

This Continental has been given all the right investments. Rarely do you get a chance at a classic that commands this much attention, so don't miss you chance. Call now!
