Even thought it doesn't look like it, this slab-sided Continental was one of the smallest sedans you could purchase from Lincoln back in the day. Some notable features on the '63 Continental are the hinged "suicide" doors, retractable vinyl top (trunk-lid is all one piece) and a "tilt-away" steering wheel borrowed from Thunderbird.
