Pure elegance...with a two-year/24,000 mile pledge of excellence* Now America has a new kind of fine car, one that combines even greater luxury with 14 inches less length. Specifically designed for today's close-packed traffic, the new Lincoln Continental is slimmer, easier to park and han dle. But its greatest achievement is in standards of quality and reliability... standards so high that it alone, among all American fine cars, is now warranted for two full years or 24,000 miles. There are so many other pleasures to dis cover: Doors that open at the centerline for unusual ease of entrance. Contour-zoned seats cushioned with nearly twice the usual amount of foam rubber. The first hydraulic windshield wipers, silent and 50 percent more powerful. This country's only four-door convertible. America's largest V-8 engine-and biggest brakes. This car is so advanced in design and dura bility it will keep right on revealing new virtues mile after velvet mile-but isn't that just the enduring kind of automobile you've wanted?
