The new Presidential Continental is shown here in three stages. The car is a Lincoln Continental which literally was cut in half, reinforced and extended in length by 20 percent of three and one half feet. (Top) An all-metal roof provides a formal appearance. (Center) A full transparent roof is comprised of six sections for covering both passenger and driver compartments. (Bottom) An open-air version, with the ‘elevator' rear seat raised to 10 ½ inches above the floor level. Retractable foot stands are shown in the center and bottom stages. The car is expected to be used by the First Family during their visit to Mexico.
