Classifind Cut: 1964 Lincoln Continental Convertible – SOLD!
April 1, 2021 Update – while this Lincoln Four-Door Convertible “Classifind” expired recently, given the seller’s past history we suspect may not actually be sold yet. For now, we’re labeling this ride “Sold?” However, we will keep an eye out for an updated listing. In the interim, please reach out either by email or call Rudy directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.
March 17, 2021 Update – After a three-week hiatus following their original expired ad from January, the seller of this ’64 Lincoln posted a new listing just as we were busy preparing for our latest Topless Thursday features. The latest listing relies on the same pictures and description as well as sticking with the $35K asking price.
February 25, 2021 Update – We just confirmed the listing for this “Classifind” expired, so with no replacement found we’re assuming, for now, this ride “Sold”
First introduced for the 1961 model year, for 1964 Lincoln completed the first mid-cycle refresh of its four-door-only Lincoln Continental convertible. One rarely known fact is that despite looking very similar to the ’61-’63 models, engineers increased the car’s wheelbase three inches (to 126) and used the newfound room to set the rear seat further back to increase room. In addition to a number of styling changes, Lincoln designers completely revised the interior with a full-width instrument panel, updated upholstery patterns, door panels, and fittings.
We first spotted a survivor example of this mid-cycle Continental Convertible in February 2021 on Craigslist in Easton, Connecticut for $35,000. Reported to be always garaged and not having any rust, this 113K original mile survivor’s price lands $1,900 less than the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool #3 “Good” appraisal of $36,900.
Not only do we like the fact the second owner is selling this car, based on the pictures provided it appears he has a second similar model in his garage. It’s always great to buy a survivor car from who could be a knowledgeable Lincoln enthusiast who likely knows the quirks of these cars.
Here’s the seller’s description:
