SPECIAL NOTES
The Industrial Design Institute awarded a Bronze Medal to the designers of the 1961 Lincoln Continental.

1961 ushered in new styling that would establish a "look" for Lincoln that would be retained for many years to come. Basic 1961 styling was continued through 1965, with a major restyling for 1966.

1961 was the first year for:

  • Lincoln's "classic" look
  • Center-opening rear doors
  • Four door convertible model
  • 123 inch wheelbase
  • Continental Mark II-inspired taillight design
  • Curved window glass in doors
  • Fully automatic convertible top design that retracted into luggage compartment (previous models retracted into top well behind seat)
