1962 Lincoln Continental Custom


Recommended Posts

A while back I picked up a nasty old built up '62 Continental convertible. Since many of the stock parts were missing I opted to rebuild it as a period custom. The engine is from a '65, an F-100 Wild Kat grille was modified to fit, and I used the triple-stripe tires and wire wheels from the recent '65 Riv reissue. The first two pics show how it looked when I got it, and the others depict it now.

Nice rescue ! The grille / headlamps is one of the custom pieces from the '53 F-100 , no ? Either way , it fits perfectly with the rest of the mods !

Love that colour --- Tamiya Gun Metal ?

It's the charcoal color from the Testors One Coat line... I don't recall the actual name and I'm too lazy to look. :) I did use Tamiya Gunmetal to touch it up in a few areas though. It's a pretty close match.

I think that color is called Graphite Dust.

That's the custom air cleaner from the '65 Continental.
