Tokyo Slim, that Lincoln Continental included a four door convertible model, as I recall. The only four door convertible made in America. Eva Gabor and Eddie Albert used one in the television series, Green Acres.
Label King, sinister is the word.
robbie, my father paid $6,800.00 for our Sedan de Ville, which was fairly stripped. The upholstery was 'Dubonnet' cloth. We saved by not ordering leather. I'll tell you something: much as I'll always love Cadillacs, they ain't what they used to be. Nothing is. Sometimes that's been for the good.
Buickguy, I had a college professor from Cuba, who ALWAYS bought Buicks. She told me that in Havana, the Buick was held far higher than any Cadillac, with respect to status or style. Cadillacs were considered attractive to 'new money.' I knew a doctor growing up, who felt the same way. He always drove a buick Electra. Remember those?? 225??
Regarding the firemist shades, again we economized: they were a four hundred dollar option. Back in 1970, that was quite a bit of money to pay, just for paint. I was dying for Chateau Mauve firemist, though . . . I still love that color.
Back to Imperials: here's Lana Turner smothered in mink, next to her chauffeur driven Imperial: Portrait in Black, 1960. Lana was made for limos . . .
