Perhaps whoever coined the phrase “Go big or stay home” drove a 1966 Lincoln Continental like this convertible that’s sitting outside of a Tonawanda repair shop. Big? Only if you consider a 126-inch wheelbase to be big. Or a 462 CID V-8 engine as big. Or a weight of over over two-and-a-half tons… I could go on, but I think you get my point. The ’66 model year was the first time the modern (post-1961) Continental was offered as a two-door coupe. It was also the only four-door production convertible made in North America. You could have been one of 3,180 buyers who bought one of these, with a starting price of $6,383 — but I’ll bet that most of you weren’t. See the whole line here.
