YAK Car Pic of the Day

This 1967 Lincoln Continental looks very much like a 1966 Lincoln Continental. Ah, but there are subtle differences. Take for instance the grille, which the brochure bragged about as now having “vertical bars crossing the horizontal lines.” Climbing into the back seat through the rear-hinged door you’re sure to notice that “the Continental emblem has been embroidered into a new knit nylon broadcloth Chalfonte fabric.” Yeah, I thought something looked different in there. All of the ’67 Lincolns were powered by a 462 CID V-8, which was connected to a “Select-Shift Turbo-drive automatic torque converter (with) 3-speed planetary gear set, 6-position selector dial.” To you and me, that’s an automatic transmission. Copy-writers — sheesh! This black sedan is for sale in downtown Sanborn. Prices started at $5,795 when new; use that as a bargaining chip if you have to.
