Day 2 of 7 Days of Lincoln…
This 1967 Lincoln Continental is from the marque’s seventh consecutive year of suicide doors. Of course, Lincoln never officially called them that (they were center-opening doors), but it’s probably how they’re best remembered. Why were they called suicide doors? Think about what might happen should you fall out of an opened rear door while the car was at speed. You’d probably have a pretty slim chance of survival. This was also the second (and final) year that Lincoln had its taillights located in the rear bumper. The ’67 models were still based on the all-new 1961 cars, and would remain so for two more years. MY 1970 would see a complete makeover, and spell the end of the center-opening doors. We saw today’s RealRide a few years back in downtown Sanborn.
