There has been a close association between the American Secret Service, the White House and Ford’s Lincoln Continental for many years. It has been the choice of luxury car by these two senior US departments and named after the perceived ’continental’ styling elements it adapted. It was certainly the most expensive car sold by a domestic manufacturer in the United States and a direct contender for the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud. The 1966-1969 solid construction and rigorous post-build inspection of each vehicle reflected Ford corporate management's commitment to making the finest mass-produced domestic automobile of its time.

Sourced from Houston, Texas in 2014 and now fully UK registered, it is in solid condition throughout with good paintwork. It clearly sits on non-standard 20” ‘American Racing’ wheels, low profile tyres and a non-standard exhaust. The gold coloured leather interior is in good order and the air conditioning unit has been comprehensively rebuilt to the tune of $800 in 2013 and it was last MoT tested in the UK in 2017/18. Included in the sale is a file of paperwork, mainly from the US detailing general servicing items as well as correct UK registration documents. Offered without reserve, this ‘Kennedy Coupé’ is a rare treat.

Interested parties should satisfy themselves as to the description and condition of each lot prior to the sale. Buyers are advised to inspect the car in person or use a professional to carry out this service.
