1963 Lincoln Continental, on Buffalo's east side

Just to prove you don’t have to drive way out in the country searching behind barns and under trees for interesting old cars, here’s a 1963 Lincoln Continental hardtop sedan, seen just last week on Buffalo’s east side. With its unique, rear “suicide” doors, the Lincoln was all-new for 1961, and continued on through 1969 with mostly grille, bumper, tail-light, and trim changes. From 1961 through 1967 it was available as this four-door hardtop sedan or America’s only four-door convertible. For the 1967 model year a two-door hardtop was added; for 1968 the convertible was dropped.
Pricing for the ’63 sedan started at $6,074  and the convertible at $6,720. There were 27,849 sedans made that year, while the droptop was quite a bit scarcer with only 3,212 being produced.
