recognize the automobile as UNMISTAKABLY CONTINENTAL.

“The Continental changed a bit in 1962.”
Still, styling changes continued to be mild, among them were:

Out of the 31, 061 total produced, only 3, 212 were CONVERTIBLES were produced.
What that means is only 9.899% of the entire production were CONVERTIBLES.
In recent stats suggest, that only 3 percent, are still in existence. That means there are less than 100.68 of
these Lincolns left on the road.

From all of my due diligence, she is in fact a 2 owner Lincoln Convertible.
“Let's us start at the top, shall we...”
Bio of this 2 owner lady:
Owner number 1:
She was owned by R. Campbell, was the owner and founder of one the best know Wall Street firms of its time. Mr.
Campbell, had very close ties to the GREAT NEWSPAPER STRIKE OF 1962. Mr. Campbell was a key figure in bringing the
New York Times, the Daily News, and theNew York Post to the bargaining table to end the strike.
Mr. Campbell cared and loved her until his passing. I was fortunate to rescue her from his care taker who knew how
special this Continental was, but just didn't know how to care for her.
She truly is a piece of American history.
Mr. Campbell only drove her 80, 438 miles over her lifetime.
What that means is:
1, 517.6981 Miles per year
126.4748 Miles per month
31.6187 Miles a week
4.5169 Miles a day!!!!!!!!!!
