Given the generous proportions and considerable curb weight of this Continental, it would take an engine with some substantial displacement to propel it properly and the 460 cubic inch V8 standing by beneath the hood certainly qualifies. It’s likely the original powerplant and is in fin form – armed with a 4-barrel carb, it fires up promptly and pulls with gusto as it teams with a smooth shifting 3-speed automatic C6 transmission to form a road ready drivetrain. This vintage limo delivers a strong driving experience in all respects – in adding to its substantial power, its brake system is in good working order, its ride as smooth as you could want and its power steering feels impressively tight and precise. This eye-catching ride cruises on a set of 15″ stock wheels wrapped with Nexen N’Priz tires. The undercarriage on this lengthy Lincoln is in very solid shape.
