Up for sale in our Houston Showroom is this 1964 Lincoln Continental. The Lincoln Continental is a series of luxury cars produced by Lincoln, a division of the American automaker Ford Motor Company. First introduced in 1939 as a coachbuilt convertible, which would spawn the personal luxury car segment. The 4th generation Lincoln Continental was based on a stretched version of a proposed 1961 Thunderbird two-door hardtop that had been rejected as too classy and not sporty enough for the typical Thunderbird buyer. But while the four-seat Thunderbird was a relatively huge success, the Lincoln division was in danger of being culled. Designers and engineers worked hard at making a new, distinctive and profitable Lincoln. They succeeded admirably with the 4th Gen Continental. Made famous by its rear-hinged "suicide" rear doors this car has found its way into countless movies, posters, & into many of the populations hearts. This 64 Lincoln is a true beauty and is in excellent condition. Staring with the outside of the car you will find a nice white paint that was restored and shows well. All of the exterior chrome, trim, emblems, & hub caps are all in superb condition. The doors open & close easily and line up as they should. The white convertible top is in great condition, goes up & down as it should. Looking at the interior you will not be disappointed.
