Lincoln's ties with the Continental date back to the 1940s when the first generation came out. Related to the era's Zephyr, it was offered with two doors and rear-wheel drive. The more advanced second generation was launched in 1956, and two years later, they replaced it with the third generation that survived until 1960. One year later, the fourth generation debuted, followed by five more generations.
There was a 14-year hiatus between the ninth and tenth generations, and the latter was the last of its kind. It was made at the Flat Rock assembly plant in Michigan, came with various V6 engines, and was sent off by the marvelous Coach Door Edition, which packed a twin-turbo mill with 400 horsepower under the hood and featured an all-wheel drive system.
Considering that the images were released by 412donklife on Instagram earlier this week, pictured could be a big word. But it's real, and there's no CGI here. The car is out of this world with its rear suicide doors and a darker-than-night overall stance. It's black almost everywhere, features smoked lighting units at both ends, extra tinted windows all around, and a few other things.
In fact, the only things providing some contrast are the aftermarket alloys with their shiny look and the red interior partially visible through the open doors. This 1969 Lincoln Continental also boasts some serious firepower under the hood, complemented by a parachute attached to its back end, suggesting that it is ready for a fun day at the drag strip. The adjustable suspension allows it almost to rub its belly onto the road.
This is a great-looking project that has conquered our hearts, and we think it is one of the most fabulous takes on this model yet. Do you agree?
