To revive the ailing Lincoln-Mercury division the restyled 1961 Continental was a massive success. The styling was so liked that it remained basically unchanged until the new range was introduced in the 1970s. Initially available as a thin-pillar four-door sedan or convertible it also came as a two-door hardtop in 1966. Early models had a 430ci V8 which was upgraded 462ci in 1966. The body was very rigid with top quality protection against rust. These factors were reflected in strong sales. This is a book of contemporary road tests, technical and specification data, new model intro's, driver's reports, history, long term tests.
