This 1969 Lincoln Continental is presently parked in the city of Niagara Falls USA. It’s very similar to one which spent last summer in the front yard of a Grand Island home. In ’69 the Continental came in two-door ($5,830) and four-door ($6,063) versions; also in the showrooms was the Continental Mark III coupe, whose brisk sales eventually led to the demise of the full-sized two-door Continental. In 1969 a total of 29,258 four-doors left the factory, compared to only 9,032 two-doors, and 23,088 Mark IIIs (at a princely $6,758).
