    Creating the Lincoln Continental MK ll

    Lincoln Continental

    Creating the Lincoln Continental MK II

    The original Lincoln Continental was built in 1939 to be Edsel Ford’s personal car, and was never intended for production. The car became an instant classic, however, and 5322 Continentals were built until manufacturing ceased in 1948.

    Even after production stopped, the Continental’s popularity and demand remained strong, with people clamoring for its return. Part one of this rarely seen 1955 Ford film takes you back to 1952, when work began on designing an all-new Continental Mark II.

    Creating the Lincoln Continental Mark II – Part 2

    In 1956, after 4 years from concept to completion, Ford introduced the luxurious Lincoln Continental Mark II. Priced at $10,000, it was one of the world’s most expensive cars. This was what the the biggest celebrities of the day drove, including Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra and Elizabeth Taylor.

    Part 2 of “Creating the Lincoln Continental Mark II” is a fascinating look at how Bill Ford’s “modern formal” design concept was taken from the drawing board to production and beyond.

    As the iconic Packard slogan says, “Ask The Man That Owns One”. If you don’t know anyone who owns a Packard, try asking Michael Bergren from the LeMay Museum located in Lakewood, Colorado.

    In this video presentation, Michael tells Lance Lambert, host of television’s “Vintage Vehicle Show”, all about this stunning 1930 Packard model 740 convertible coupe.

    Packards were a high end luxury car, known for their dependability. This Packard 740 Coupe features include an inline 8 cylinder engine, as well as a rumble seat.

    A complete, frame-off restoration on this 1930 Packard 740 Convertible Coupe was done by the students of the Hagerty Education Program at America’s Car Museum in Tacoma, Washington.

    How to Create a Bad Ass Lincoln

    Bad Ass Lincoln

    Remember the song “Hot Rod Lincoln“? Well, the folks at Divers Street Rods have taken that to a whole new level.

    Starting with one of the most iconic luxury cars of the ’60s, a 1966 Lincoln Continental, they added a supercharged, 662 hp, 5.8 liter Trinity V-8 engine from arguably the most powerful Mustang ever produced, the 2013-2014 Ford Shelby GT500.

    The result is simply known as “Bad Ass Lincoln”. What else could you call it?

    Here’s a quick video walkaround:

    The complete project photo gallery can be found here: Project Gallery

    Whether or not you’re a fan of hot rods and custom cars, you have to admit this is one awesome Hot. Rod. Lincoln.
