1968 Lincoln Continental Review
Lincoln made a big splash at the Auto Show when the bold new 1968 Lincoln Continental, a sedan concept that will become a production car soon. It will take your head detail on this, and cover what makes it a big new design change for Lincoln. There is a lot of visual art in the continental concept, and love that comes from these lines is the roof line in the Beltline.
The pillars estate up right gives a car very imposing stance, and it’s very different from the kind of plunging profile you see in a lot of Lincoln’s current vehicles. That hits home in this grill right here; it’s not the line grill that we can have a lot of cars on sale right now. It’s a very bright grill with the sort insert but actually, in the patchwork has a lot of Lincoln’s logo’s get around the headlights.
For making you drive more comfortable, the 1968 Lincoln Continental fully equipped with cruise control, so it can make you comfort when driving long trip. Driving this luxurious Lincoln makes you lose all sense of urgency. It makes you understand why they’re called Luxo-boat.
The steering feels like you just steer a ship, very smooth, light, and gives a slow response. Also in the suspension feels like cruising the trip in a big boat along on a sunny day. Just like the windshield was a big screen that makes you dream traveling around the world.
Thickly cushioned chesterfield buttoned leather covering the seats and doors. It’s lovely when people were always talking about the cars in America has never take corners, but this car does. Maybe this car will never fit through the street, but you know what. It’s because the street was too narrow, every street have to adjust The 68 Lincoln Continental not the other way.
