Check out what ten of Ford’s luxurious classic Lincoln Continental cars looked like back in the sixties!

The ’63 Lincoln Continental car with rear-hinged doors

For 1963, we have enlarged your private world and provided you with added power

Close the doors… and the classic look of the Continental is little changed for 1963. Even the connoisseur will have difficulty in discerning all the nuances of styling we have introduced. (One reason why the Continental retains its exceptionally high-value year after year.)

Then open the doors… and discover the first of many refinements. New spaciousness in the interior. Significantly increased leg room for passengers, and a considerable addition to usable luggage capacity. Even greater comfort and luxury in the private world of your new Continental.

Now, drive the car…and experience the excitement of augmented power in the 1963 engine. A new high turbulence piston design and full range carburetion provide superior acceleration for passing at freeway speeds — an improvement over even the remarkable Lincoln Continental engine of 1962.

Important changes, but none for the sake of change. For we will not tamper with this car merely to be different: the only changes we make are functional refinements which add to the quality of the finest car built in America.

Timeless in styling… superb in craftsmanship… lasting in value. Unquestionably your finest motorcar investment for the years ahead.

This is the Lincoln Continental for 1963. And as final proof of quality, the Continental warranty: it was the first American car to offer a total-car warranty of two full years or 24,000 miles.

[Editor’s note: The rear-hinged doors are commonly known as suicide doors.]
