1963 Lincoln Continental

Holding to a pledge, not to change the Continental
frivolously just for the sake of changing
the only new visible thing was another grill tweak
but under the hood was a new four barrel carburetor
which added 20hp and increased the big V-8 to 320hp

Cost: $6,945.00

1964 Lincoln Continental

It may look the same but wait,
it got 3 inches longer, swapped curved glass side windows for straight
and increased the size and viability of it's rear window
these minor changes improved the comfort by increasing interior room
and slightly larger doors made getting in & out easier

Cost: $6,940.00 (convertible)

1968 Lincoln Continental

A new Lincoln - say it isn't so

1969 Lincoln Mark III

The debut Mark III was released mid year in '68 but called a '69 model
so it was unchanged for this production year
much smaller and lighter than the Continental it was considered sportier
as such it drew upon a different market and the hope was
it wouldn't steal sales from it's big brother

Cost: $6,610.00
