Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is proud to offer this excellent one of a kind 1966 Lincoln Continental Convertible. This particular car is one of only two in the world that feature a 1969 model conversion, making it truly rare and unique. Only two examples of this car exist, with one sitting on display in a museum in California and is only used for parades, and the other is sitting right here in our showroom! The 1969 Continental that is iconic with prestige and class was never offered in a convertible despite its high demand to do so. Instead, the Continental convertible was produced only until 1967 and was abruptly discontinued due to Federal highway safety laws during the late 1960s. This Lincoln Continental started life as a 1966 Continental, raised in California, and the overhaul was professionally done to convert over to a 1969 body. This Lincoln still has the original numbers matching 462 cubic inch V8, and original 4 Speed automatic transmission. This car was considered at one time to be the peak of luxury, and arguable still is, with the unbelievably comfortable leather interior and every option you could ever want. This car is complete with multiple luxury options, including the passenger mirror, which was a very expensive option back in 1966, as well as full power windows, vent windows and tilt steering. Both seats are fully adjustable with power assist and complete with the center console. Possible the most impressive feature, however, is the absolutely stunning Mediterranean Iridescent paint job, which was painted in a near mirror finish, and when accented with the beautiful Parchment Vinyl top, really shows off a certain sense of class. The 1966 Lincoln Continental was the ultimate luxury vehicle, and gave the driver of it the perfect combination of both style and comfort.
Options include A/C, AM/FM Radio, Automatic Convertible Top, Hub Caps, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Power Locks, Power Seats, Power Windows, Tilt Wheel, Seat Belts, Leather Interior, White Walls, Wire Wheels, Radial Tires and a numbers matching engine. If you want to be unique and talk to everyone at the car shows, this is the car for you!
