This four-owner Continental is a mostly original car with cool custom touches.
Any car can be a lowrider, but there are certain cars that make an art out of getting lowered. The Lincoln Continental from the '60s are a perfect example with long, stretched out body lines, lots of chrome and suicide doors. And they don't get much better than this 1961 Lincoln Continental that shows how stunning a modified Lincoln can be while still exuding all of the beauty these four-door convertibles originally had.
This lowered Lincoln is being auctioned off on The Driven Exchange by actor Daniel Wu, who is just the car's fourth owner, but this car might be more popular than its celebrity owner. Following a complete restoration back to original in the '90s and it was at Pebble Beach when Lincoln was the sponsored marque where it was proudly displayed on the 18th hole. According to Wu, this Lincoln is an original West Coast car in its original Black Cherry color with less than 48,000 original miles.
After Wu took ownership of the Continental, he modified it with an AccuAir air ride suspension and custom 20-inch billet wheels. As sad as it is to hear when an all-original classic car gets modified, Wu definitely made the right call giving this drop top a killer West Coast look. The flawless condition and lowered stance makes this Lincoln a show stopper, but the coolest detail on the car is the custom billet aluminum center caps.
This tastefully modified 1961 Lincoln Continental will be up for grabs on The Driven Exchange starting August 17 and running through August 24, so if you want a head-turning classic, be sure you're registered to bid for a chance as this lowered Lincoln.
