Doin’ the Continental • The ’58-’60 Continentals might go down in automotive history as the biggest, heaviest mass-produced American cars of the 20th century (and that’s saying something!) but they weren’t commercially successful and almost caused the demise of the whole Lincoln brand. The 1961 Continental changed all that… and how!
