Professionally Restored 1964 Lincoln Continental Convertible by SELLUXE. This is an exact twin car to the recent
1964 we sold 2 months ago. The car has a brand new 2016 AccuAir Air Management
System along with Mobsteelís complete front and rear air ride kit.
This is the current best of the best and most expensive air ride management system on
the market. Over $70K invested not including the cost of the original car which was a
great car to start from and was 95% rust free. The whole car is super solid
throughout and the undercarriage is perfect which is rare. Brand New Black
Mobsteel Detroit Steel 20 Inch wheels with ĺ inch white wall tires that have
less then 50 miles on them. The car went through a 2 year restoration.
This 1964 Lincoln ContinentalConvertible, like our most recent one we sold,
we believe are a couple of the nicest ones in existence. Less then 75 miles has been
logged since the restore completion. Sourcing high quality Lincoln parts and
overhauling / rebuilding the main mechanical components of the 1960ís Lincolnís is a
serious challenge and very time consuming due to no factory reproduction parts being
available to be purchased (other then the windshield, factory spec rubber seal kits and a
few misc parts). $9K was spent alone was spent just on overhauling the convertible top
relays, motors, hydraulics, hoses, New Upper Panel Limited Switch (super important in
orderto have a reliable convertible top) and rebuilding all windows motor and new
switches. This 64 actually has the working two rear window automatic drops
for when the rear doors open and close (rarely work on most Lincoln's)
The under carriage is super clean and also show cases that this car has no
rust. The many vendors who worked on this car were in different
areas of Florida. The car was either taken to them or they came to work on
the car in South Florida during the restoration. The car is solid and itís an
incredible looking clean classic 64 Lincoln Continental Convertible that gets
tons of attention from all ages wherever it goes. Car sounds great, runs and
shifts super smooth and the brakes are strong.

It's hard to think back now, but the same man overseeing the design of the 2013 Ford Fusion also presided over a rather lackluster period in Ford design, highlighted by vehicles like the Five Hundred and Freestyle. With the redesigned Fusion receiving high praise, J Mays tells Automotive News that he feels vindicated from criticisms suggesting he's not a daring enough designer.
When Mays took over as lead of design in 1997, he admits to having quite an ego ("My head would barely fit through the door some days. I've long since gotten over myself") and the workload to match. With the Blue Oval's portfolio full of premium brands like Aston Martin, Jaguar, Land Rover and Volvo at that point, along with the bread-and-butter Ford, Lincoln and Mercury models, Mays certainly had quite the challenge.
It was in the mid-2000s that Mays took over just the premium brands, and took on the new title of Chief Creative Officer. At the time, Mays endured some criticism for looking backwards to retro styling, rather than setting a new standard for American car design - criticism that Mays says he is free from with the all-new Fusion.
You would think that commercial being ridiculed across the Internet would be an advertising executive's worst nightmare, but that's not necessarily the case. At least not when it comes to Lincoln and its latest campaign to promote the new MKC.
The campaign features Matthew McConaughey channeling his characters from True Detective and The Lincoln Lawyer, and was quickly spoofed by both Conan O'Brien and Ellen DeGeneres. But instead of shaking their heads in dismay at the comedy talk-show hosts' take on their ad, Lincoln and its advertising firm Hudson Rouge welcome the free publicity.
"We're flattered. Just to get out into the public mind with parodies says you've achieved a certain amount of notoriety," Hudson Rouge CCO Jon Pearce told Automotive News. "It's hard to put a dollar amount on earned media. We couldn't ask for better."
General Motors Vice President of Global Design, Ed Welburn, had some dismissive words for a certain cross-town luxury brand during an interview with Car and Driver. When asked about his thoughts on Lincoln, Welburn deflected, before saying, "I don't consider Lincoln to be a competitor for Cadillac."
"They're not a global luxury brand. I don't consider them a competitor. Are they a competitor for Buick? Quite possibly. But not for Cadillac," GM's head designer explained. Welburn, who's been at the helm of GM Design North America since 2003 and is the first to hold the position of VP of Global Design, has been instrumental in the styling renaissance at GM, so predictably, Car and Driver's interview with him focused on the design aspect of cars.
During the interview, Welburn explicitly denied plans for a reborn Cadillac XLR, even as a new Chevrolet Corvette is hitting the market and strides are being made with Cadillac's V-Series performance arm saying, "We have a lot of cars that we're working on for the Cadillac brand. The XLR is not one of them right now."
