      A beauty!
      I've got to imagine, with that small hood-opening, that engine repairs/service on these cars could not have been very easy.

      I spent a lot of time in the back seat of this particular car traveling from Colorado to Iowa and back as a kid. I loved it then and love it now. My cousin let me drive it this weekend and it still drives like new. They are very solid well built cars. Ford actually took them on test drives before they were released for customer sales..

      I agree, and one of the best looking American cars ever. Timeless, classic styling. Clean in an era of excess. Still looks great today.

      The 1961 Lincoln was named as one of the seven best cars in the world in 1961. It has elegance that cars of today lack, Lincoln in particular.

      Geez, a convertible with some back seat room. What a classic with the unique and great suicide doors for back seat entry. Would love to have this cruiser!!

      I had a toy car of this very model when I was kid. I loved that car and always fantasized about owning a real one like it some day. Never happened.

      This design was originally to be the replacement for the Thunderbird. Lincoln was suffering for sales after the 1958 thru 1960 fiasco and talked Tbird design engineers out of it. Smart move.Still one of the most beautiful cars ever made. Quality was also in line with the design.

      Not only was the opening small, the hood hinges at the front!

      I owned a powder blue 61, alas not the convertible. I wish I still had it. The 430 CID V-8 engine fit nicely under that hood with room to spare. It was easy to work on. A very solid high quality automobile. A PERFECT design. The car was given many design awards including one from the Museum of Modern Art.
