1965 Lincoln Continental Concept Car


Based on a 1963 Lincoln 4-door sedan, the1965 Continental Town Brougham show car had a 131-inch wheelbase, 8-inches longer than the production car. Under the long hood was a 320 horsepower, 430 cu. in. V-8, connected to an automatic transmission. Featuring an open chauffeur compartment, the exterior was finished in dark blue. The blue/green metallic-tone leather interior was accented by walnut moldings and large Continental emblems embroidered into the seatbacks. There was a limousine-type division window to separate the driver from passengers, but an intercom keep them in touch.
