Lot #1250 - Powered by a 430cid V8 engine with factory air conditioning, power windows, seat, vent windows, top and original leather interior. Fully restored by Bud Ward Restorations in red with a red interior. This car was one of the largest and most expensive cars built in America in 1960. The restoration is less than one year old and was done to original specifications. A history of the 1960 Continental: The Continental division was dissolved after 1957, but in an attempt to retain some of the cachet of the Mark II, Lincoln named its top-of-the-line car the 1958 Continental Mark III. This differed from the lower-model full-size Lincolns only in the trim level and in its roof treatment, featuring a reverse-angle power rear "breezeway" window that retracted down behind the back seat. That year's full-size Lincoln sold poorly in all models; 1958 was a recession year in the US. The new Lincoln was one of the largest cars ever made, larger than that year's Cadillac, and had styling considered by many to be excessive even in that decade of styling excess. 1959's range contained a Continental Mark IV model and the 1960 range had a Continental Mark V, with more restrained styling than the 1958.
