Built from a pristine AMT 1967 Lincoln Continental Kit, painted with Duplicolor '67 Ford Dark Blue Metallic, with a set of Satco Firestone Deluxe Champion tires.

Look's great Ron. For some reason it seems there should be a few secret service guys with sun glasses running beside this one.

Lovely Lincoln Cool

I have a pair of '67's; one restorable built and one MIB. I intend to make one a proper CV.

I have a restorable '69 that will eventually be a coupe.

Love the Lincolns Big Smile

Nice touch you've got there!
Good job on the Lincoln. My oldest brother and a friend tried to sell a dark blue Lincoln to then Governor Reagan, but was turned down because it wasn't black. This one looks just like it. Thumbs Up

Hello Ron,

New member here. I must say, I think the best compliment I can give you is, can I take her for a drive? -

My dad had a 68 Ford Fairlane 2-door, and it was I think the exact same color as this one. It's long gone now, but ooh what I would not give to have one last drive in it!

Ron that is awsome. I am soo jealous. I have been trying to find a late 60's Lincoln hardtop for a long time. You did a fantastic job. Love the color.

Nice work. There's nothing wrong with a Big Car. If you've ever driven one, you'd agree, it's like driving your Living room. Minus the Big Screen TV, Video Game Console and etc..

My husband was searching the web for added inspiration when he came across a site called "Collector Car Ads" (www.collectorcarads.com/.../57212). It's a plain looking triple Black '67 Lincoln Continental. No fancy wheels or Wheel Covers. The Steel Wheels on it looked like Ford Crown Vic Police issue. They were wrapped in good looking Black wall Radial Tires. If I knew my Husband's Cardiologist would sign off on the DMV form to get his license back, I'd be looking into getting this  jewel for him. Check it out.

Does anyone know where we can get a Hardtop for the AMT 1965 Lincoln Continental? Preferably with out the Vinyl pattern molded in. He may not be able to drive anymore but he can still build... and dream.

I'm a bad monkey.

Aaaaaaaahhhhh insanity, It's not just for the insane anymore.

Thank you. Cadillac, Missing Link Resins did a Hardtop body for the AMT '65. They may still have one available.

It seems I am unable to edit my posts ? Your build will fit nice in my string is what I intended to say . LBJ loved his personal Lincoln . He enjoyed : "riding around Drunkin chuckkin MT's at Natives ." English version ; tossing Empty Beer Bottles at pedestrians while driving Inebriated .   Thanx ..

Great choice on the color, it really brings out the elegance of the car.

Not to be anal, but if it was a 67, It would have been a Park Lane or Monterey. The Marquis was a 2 door in 1968 and replaced the Park Lane for the 69 Model year...
