In our humble opinion, no post-World War II American convertible has more presence top-down than the four-door Lincoln Continentals of the early 1960s. We came across this cream over red leather example first listed in November 2020 on Craigslist in Penn Valley, Pennsylvania with only 37,000 original miles and an asking price of $44,000. Comparing this price against the Collector Car Market Review Online Tool confirms this private seller has his Continental priced between the #2 “Very Good” appraisal of $38,000 and the #1 “Excellent” estimate of $61,500. Here’s the seller’s description:
“Only 3138 Continental Convertibles of this year were ever produced. This Lincoln Continental has been very well maintained and always kept in a garage. It has all original parts and drives like a tank. The convertible top is black. There are suicide doors. No accidents and a little over 37000 miles on the odometer. It has an 8 cylinder engine. The only problem I had with this car was the top because it was not closing right. I got that fixed and it’s good as new. Needs a new muffler and agronomy no more than 2-3 dings the size of a half a dime.“
