The 1961 Lincoln Continental was just listed by MSN Autos as one of the "15 Most Beautiful American Cars of all time". They said, "The work of seven designers, including Lincoln styling boss Eugene Bordinat, the 1961 Continental earned a design award from the Industrial Design Institute — a rare honor for an automobile. The slab-sided look was elegantly simple, and it would attract the attention of President John Kennedy, who used them for his transportation. Four-door sedan and convertible body styles were offered, both with suicide-style rear doors that opened at the front. The look caught on. More than 25,000 Continentals were sold in 1961, pushing Lincoln ahead of Chrysler's high-end brand, Imperial."
