The venerable Lincoln Continental. First introduced in 1939, the Lincoln Continental is a luxury car from Ford intended to adapt European “continental” luxury style and sell to the masses in the USA. With only a brief hiatus here and there, the Continental nameplate is still going strong today.
Lincoln had a slew of slogans used in their print ads which are just fantastic. One says “Lincoln makes America’s most distinctive cars”. That may be true, as the Lincoln continental design language usually stood out as something special, something different. Some other fun ad slogans:
- “Uncommon luxury for the uncommon man”
- “Modern living on the move”
- “The Continental life is never out of date”
Enjoy these pics and don’t forget to check out the other Lincoln continental we spotted:
1962 Lincoln Continental Sedan
Yeeehawww! Something about the name ‘Country Squire’ just makes me want to jump straight into a Western movie with my six shooter and wrangling some livestock. Maybe that’s the feeling Ford was trying to evoke with the name and format of the mid 1980’s Ford Country Squire. Whatever their purpose with the naming mechanism was, they pulled it off with a long roof and faux wood paneling flanking the sides of the ‘Country Squire’. Long live the station wagons.
Check out previous station wagons that we’ve spotted:
1994 Buick Roadmaster Wagon
1970 Ford Galaxie Station Wagon
1988 Chevy Caprice Classic Wagon

Look at this classic piece of luxury. So classy and luxurious that this was part of the presidents motorcade in 1963 – the one remembered in history by the assassination of JFK. Is it a coincidence that JFK was assassinated in a Lincoln vehicle and that our Penny Man himself, Abraham Lincoln was also assassinated. Lincoln/Lincoln – maybe just a coincidence. Anyway, back to the car!
Some info about the 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 nameplate has been in use by Lincoln at various times for 51 years. In the Lincoln model line, the Continental has served various roles, ranging from the top-trim sedan to the base-trim sedan. Through its production, the Lincoln Continental has been produced in several bodystyles, including two-door and four-door convertibles, two-door and four-door hardtops and sedans, and two-door coupes. The Lincoln Continental is the final American car factory-produced as a four-door convertible or with a V12 engine.
For the 1961 model year, the Lincoln Division was extensively redesigned. Following the $60 million in losses to develop the 1958–1960 Lincolns and Continentals, the Lincoln Division product line (of the Capri, Premiere, and Continental Mark Series) was replaced by a single four-door Lincoln Continental. Making its appearance for the first time since 1948, it was available as a sedan and convertible.
