While this one’s not a convertible, there are few cooler Detroit land barges than the suicide-doored 60’s Continentals (assuming you can get past the whole “bloody death of a beloved political figure in one” thing). I like the baby blue, the full-width hubcaps, and the lead photo showing off the car’s best feature. Sure they aren’t that safe and not much more than a conversation piece, but there’s just something inexplicably fun about the doors on these cars. The description makes it sound like the car is in good physical condition, although I’d forgo the seller’s rat rod suggestion and leave it as-is, faded paint and all. Hopefully you could just flush all the fluids, get the engine started, and be well on your way to a swinging party in no time.
