National Geographic : 1970 Apr
The 1970 Lincoln Continental. Its looks tell you it's different. Its ride tells you how different. Until you've driven it yourself, you cannot fully appre ciate the first altogether new Lincoln Continental in nearly a decade. Its impressive new size is immediately apparent. So is its distinctive new styling. But above all, Lincoln Continental makes this the year of The Ride. The Ride is the result of many innovations. A longer wheelbase. The widest stance on the road today. The industry's largest drive shaft, rubber-cush ioned to eliminate vibration. The 4-coil spring suspension. The seat cushions' five inches of latex foam padding. And the remarkable deep-breathing 460 cubic-inch engine. At turnpike speed, it is so hushed, so smooth you are scarcely aware it is running. Your first ride in the 1970 Lincoln Continental will open to you a serene new world of comfort and quiet unprecedented in a motorcar. Discover The Ride.
