The Lincoln is an automobile that was sold by Lincoln as their entry-level car in 1960. It was a one-year replacement for the previous years Capri, which was discontinued for 1960. It was on the Lincoln unit body platform shared by the Premiere and Continental, with its large 131 in (3,327 mm) wheelbase. Standard motor, like in all 1960 Lincoln's, was the 430 2bbl making 310 hp (230 kW). The 2 Barrel Carburetor was used to try to boost fuel mileage, which in the 59's with the 4 Bbl carburetor, was around 8 mpg. The switch to the 2 Bbl only boosted mileage to 10 mpg‑US (24 L/100 km; 12 mpg‑imp).

As far as a competitor, the Lincoln competed with the Cadillac 62 and the Chrysler New Yorker.

In 1961, all Lincolns were Continentals, and wheelbase was scaled back 8 in (203 mm) to 123 in (3,124 mm).
