1968 Lincoln Continental

The centre of the grille of the 1968 Lincoln Continental is more protruding than ever, while turn signals return to the front wings. This is the first real departure from the original Continental style of 1960 - unfortunately, it is not for the better. The low-production, yet emblematic four-door convertible sedan is eliminated from the range. Lincoln builds its one-millionth automobile during the year.
