Timeless styling, an air of elegance and low production make for a seldom-seen survivor in this ’64 Lincoln Continental Convertible. This overall original Continental was found in a collection of cars in storage for 20 years in Central Texas. For 1964, Lincoln’s Continental was substantially larger than before. Leg room was increased by four inches; knee room grew by 2.5 inches, more than double that of the 1961 model; and usable trunk capacity increased by 15 percent, a total gain of 33 percent more than in 1961. Even the glove compartment was 50 percent larger. 

Built on November 25, (code 25L) 1963 in Ford’s Wixom, (VIN code Y) Michigan factory. Dressed in Arctic White (code M), The paint and trim are in overall very good order, including a blue, power-folding fabric top. The body is straight and the original chrome bumpers fit tightly to the body. 

This big Lincoln rolls on Mastercraft all-season radials, size 235/75R15 at every corner. Each tire is mounted on a steel wheel topped with a factory wheel cover. The wheel covers are in good, original order while the tires are in very good condition. This four-door convertible rides on a 126-inch wheelbase. 

Inside, the overall original blue interior is in overall good survivor order. A original three-spoke steering wheel faces the driver and is ready for adventure. The front and rear bench seats are in original condition but the power seat is inoperable. The famous Continental instrument panel and inner door panels are all in good original condition but the fuel, temp and amp gauges are inoperable. A column-mounted shift lever and a factory radio and clock complete the interior but the factory power antenna and air conditioning is inoperable. 

Under that forward-hinged hood is a 430 CID V-8 (code MEL) with four-barrel carburetor (VIN code N). Backing this motor is a Twin-Range Turbo-Drive three-speed automatic transmission (code 4) and a 2.89:1 rear end (code 1). Driver convenience features are, as expected, lengthy – air-conditioning, power steering, power brakes, power-folding top, power windows, power locks and power front seat. 

For 1964, the Lincoln Continental underwent its first mid-cycle redesign. Alongside styling updates, several functional changes were focused towards increasing rear-seat space. The wheelbase was increased from 123 to 126 inches, shifting the rear seats backward. The roofline underwent several changes, with the adoption of flat side glass (replacing curved window glass). To increase rear headroom, the rear roofline became additionally squared off, in a notchback style. For the first time on a Lincoln since 1951, rear doors were rear-hinged (suicide doors). To alert drivers of open doors, Lincoln fitted the dashboard with a “Door Ajar” warning light (as seen on many modern automobiles). Latching together at the B-pillar with a vacuum-operated central locking system, convertibles used an abbreviated pillar while sedans were “pillared hardtops.” 

In what would be the first four-door convertible from a major American manufacturer after World War II, the Lincoln Continental convertible was fitted with a power-operated top on all examples. Deriving its mechanism from the Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner hardtop convertible, the Continental was fitted with a fabric roof that stored under a rear-hinged deck lid/filler panel. In a similar fashion as the Skyliner, to access the trunk for storage, the deck lid was opened electrically (without raising or lowering the roof). 

In a slight exterior restyling, to eliminate the “electric shaver” appearance, the front fascia added vertical chrome accents to the grille; the recessed rear grille was replaced by a much simpler decklid with trim panel (moving the fuel-filler door to the left-rear fender). The interior was completely revised with a full-width instrument panel, updated upholstery patterns, door panels and fittings. 

Competition to this Lincoln in 1964 included Buick’s Wildcat Convertible, Cadillac’s de Ville Convertible, Chrysler’s 300 Convertible, Dodge’s Polara 500 Convertible, Imperial’s Crown Convertible, Mercury’s Park Lane Convertible, Oldsmobile’s 98 Convertible and Pontiac’s Bonneville Convertible. 

If you are a Ford or a Lincoln collector, this ’64 convertible might make worthy example to your collection or it might be an entry ticket for a first-time classic car collector.
