Vehicle Story

This 1966 Lincoln Continental was restored under previous ownership approximately five years ago. During the process, its body was stripped down and repainted, and its 462ci V8 was rebuilt. Refinished in its factory-correct Venetian Yellow with a green top over the reportedly original gold interior, it comes equipped with power brakes with front discs, power steering, power windows, and air conditioning. Available now, this garage-kept Ontario-based Continental sedan comes with a shop manual, a brochure, an Ontario vehicle permit, and a clear title in the seller's name.

Lincoln restyled the Continental for the 1966 model year and gave it a new front-end design with a reshaped hood, grille with horizontal bars, and bumper-mounted parking and turn signal lights. The rear end received a redesigned bumper with integrated taillights, reverse lights, and turn signals as well as a trunk compartment lock concealed by a hinged Continental logo. This particular sedan with coach-style rear doors was restored approximately five years ago under previous ownership, a process that reportedly involved the body being stripped down, any rusted metal being replaced, exterior and interior trim that was not deemed to be in good condition being swapped out for new parts, and the sheet metal being repainted in factory-correct Venetian Yellow. The car is topped with a green roof and accented with brightwork in areas that include the grille, headlight rings, front and rear bumpers, greenhouse glass trim, and fender peaks. In addition to a hood ornament, there is badging on the front end, front and rear fenders, and trunk lid. Wheels with polished covers are set inside of whitewall tires that the seller notes are cracking and may need to be replaced.

A picture in the photo carousel to the right shows an imperfection in the paint on one of the fenders.

According to the seller, the interior is original and comes equipped with air conditioning. The coding on the body tag indicates this car rolled off of the assembly line in Lincoln's Wixom, Michigan factory with a gold interior, which is complemented with wood-toned vinyl appliques on the door panels. Like other 1966 Continentals, this car came standard with power steering and windows, a power front seat, a remote control driver-side mirror, and a fully lined trunk.

The two-spoke steering wheel sits in front of a set of instruments that includes a gear selection window, a horizontal 120-mph speedometer, and a fuel gauge. Lights for the engine temperature, oil pressure, and alternator output are also present. The seller reports there are 26K miles on the odometer, but true mileage is unknown.

As part of the restoration process, the 462ci V8 was rebuilt. It is topped with blue valve covers and a matching air cleaner housing. When new, the engine produced 340 horsepower and 485 lb-ft of torque, which it sent to the road via a new-for-1966 Twin-Range Turbo-Drive 3-speed automatic transmission and 2.80:1 rear end. The seller reports the engine oil was changed six months ago. The video below shows the engine idling.

Pictures of the car's underbody are available in the gallery.

Sale includes a shop manual and a brochure.
