Among these legendary land yachts, perhaps the most popular are the 60’s Lincoln Continentals. Over at Stance Works, a website dedicated to the “low as a lifestyle” creed, they’ve done a nice feature on Mike Alexander’s ‘66 Lincoln Continental, and damn does it look good.
The ‘66 Lincoln Continental coupe measures in at 18.5 feet in length, the size of a small boat. No mention of the motor is made, though stock these came with either a 430 cubic-inch V8, or one of two 460 V8 engines. Mike’s Lincoln is simple yet sweet, painted a Hot Chocolate brown and a White Pepper roof. It wears simple Crag Star Wire wheels, and would look great at stock height.
But once it is slammed to the ground (thanks to a AccuAir E-level Air Management suspension system) it takes on an almost other-worldly look. The old train yard was the perfect setting for this photoshoot, and seeing this old land yacht has awoken the urge to scour Craigslist for a ‘66 Continental Coupe of our own. Would you ever rock a land yacht like this, or do you prefer your classic American cars smaller and faster?
