1965 Lincoln Continental Convertible 7 liter V8 from North America
A chariot that exists in a realm of its own
Alternator was replaced.
Power steering metal line replaced.
New shocks, new suspension bushings, some minor trouble with electric convertible top.
This is the the greatest open car ever from the USA, and maybe one of the greatest cars of all time.
It has a marvelous timeless appearance that simply outclasses anything from any other maker at almost any price.
It remains comfortable, drivable, and most of all, spectacularly enjoyable. This car is a brilliant masterpiece which only becomes more wondrous with the passage of time.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I completely agree that the 1965 Lincoln Continental sedan and convertible are just about the most beautiful, powerful, and classy cars ever built! BigRich on Long Island.

It's read 'beaut' as in 'beaut-i-ful'

Keep the car and hold onto it forever in its stock form. Unmutilated versions, untouched by the "gangsta" wannabe lowrider kids, are getting rare nowadays.
