  • Cool 4-door Cars

    I'm selling my Camaro and moving on to a new project. My wife and I watched the new Dax Shepard movie Hit & Run and she loved the '67 Lincoln in it. While I was away for the last month, I had a lot of time to think about things. I told her I would sell the Camaro and buy a '67ish Lincoln if she agreed to work on it with me...family style. She actually knows a few things since she grew up working on cars with her father, but has been reluctant to help out ever since her father split. I'm going to put my 6.0L LS motor in it with a turbo (600-700rwhp) to get the monster moving. It will be a hell of a difficult project (major packaging issues with the motor swap), but we will end up with a big, comfy, four door touring car.

    So, my vote for cool 4-door cars is the 1961-69 Lincoln Continental.

    Nice example:


    Kind of car I'm looking at:


    So, what are your ideas of cool cars?

    57-58 Caddy Eldorado. But, them are very pricey.

      A friend of mine did a '60 Lincoln, 4 door (suicide), many years ago.
      It was black and was cool.....one of the cooler more doors.

      He used traditional size and style wheels......not donk size......which I
      thought really set it off.

          ^^^^ Yes, very cool. Enjoyed the ride. Too bad the monster 429 couldn't move it faster.

            I like all the sedans, As 80s rolled around, I knew to look for the very project brian took on himself.

            I had a 74 chevelle sedan..not all that common. A monojet for its first 21 years..body was literally creakless. quiet and hardened..lived in maine very cold.
            for extremes, the cadillac of the 60s is a big flexible piece of plywood oem...but I would work one if I could.

            nelson engines took one of the coupes on:

                      Kitsap County, WA. I'd be looking for a body near that car. Seriously...I grew up there, frightening area. Weed, meth, and kidnappings.

                        I know that area well...I would be carrying if I went to look at it!

                        How about a Packard?

                              I'd forgot that model had the suicide doors also, the only way that car would look better was if the lower half was Silver but it look too nice to paint.
