Description

Lot #1130 - One of only 2,857 built, this stunning triple black 1961 Lincoln Continental convertible was the subject of a meticulous 3-year, ground-up restoration that began with completely stripping the car to bare metal, which was rendered laser-straight prior to the application of its mirror-like Obsidian Black paint. Nothing was overlooked during the restoration. All chrome and stainless steel trim was replaced or refinished to concours quality to complete the car's excellent presentation. The Lincoln's 430cid V8 engine and automatic transmission were completely rebuilt to factory specs by Silver Arrow Restorations. The Continental's exceptional interior was also returned to original specs and capped with a brand new, fully functional black convertible top.
