Car description

1965 Lincoln Continental Parade Limousine

Originally built by Lehmann-Peterson and Company (official supplier of Lincoln Executive Limousines for the Ford Motor Company) as a black hardtop with grey cloth interior and supplied new to the US government for presidential use by Lyndon B. Johnson and Richard Nixon's administrations. When the 39th president Jimmy Carter took officein 1977 he honored his campaign promise of cutting costs and one of the immediate cuts was to reduce the White House motor pool. Resulting in this limousine being sold in 1977 to current owner John Case founder of Classic Chauffeur Co., Inc. Limousine Company in Portland Oregon. Since new, it has covered only 25,557 miles.

In 1983 this 1965 Lincoln Continental Limousine was converted in Portland Oregon to a parade limousine (Commissioned by John Case) for the Portland Rose Festival annual parade to carry the grand marshal (Al Unser Jr, Ahmad Rashad etc...). The car was painted white and fitted with red vinyl rear seats and white vinyl front seats. The car was built in the same fashion as the John F. Kennedy X-100 presidential parade limousine (X-100 was code name given to the car by the Secret Service).

Maintained to an exceptionally high standard this limousine is in great condition and very well preserved. It has been stored in a heated garage and any items needed were attended too. It performs exceptionally well, the automatic transmission shifts smooth and the engine runs strong. Paint, glass and chrome are show quality. It does not have a hard top or any covering, it is an open car, equipped with dual red front driving lights, custom rear step plates, trunk lid handles, TV, stereo cassette player and, rear ice coolers.

Amazingly stately car that still commands attention anywhere it goes. Use this car as a museum piece or put it into service. This limousine would be a great addition to any collection.
