😮 Frans, isn't that something with the diagonal headlights? 😀
This ultra cool Chrylser has them today, and then that terrific
Continental had them the other day too ! It must have been
a trend they were following at the time.

It's so neat to see, and find out about !

It has incredible features, the driver's seat rotates outwards so you can get out more easy. A very luxurious car with 375 horses and compared to today's standards very decent handling so it can easily cope with modern traffic. Although that 7.1 litre engine is very thirsty :)

So so cool Frans, and yeah, can just imagine how one of these drove.
Must have been like floating on air. (y)

Just found this 1962 Chrysler Newport. Which looks to have a similar
look, and feel... 🙂

Man, how did they come up with all those fancy, French sounding names? :) This is a true land yacht! Almost 6 meters long, where do you park such a barge?

😄Mercury kept the Grand Marquis name all the way to the end too
I think Frans. Definitely must have been fun trying to open the doors
in a garage, or next to another car in your driveway, or a parking lot !


Steve, that Riviera rocks above ! 😎 ..Have an Electra here:

Adding in this 1968 4-Door Buick Skylark here. I think this is actually an ad... 🙂
