5k: Luxury Mudder: 1966 Lincoln Continental Truck

Where do you even begin with a car like this?  The standard car blog lead-in procedure documented in ISO 9001 protocol B117 is to start with a blurb about the history of the make, marque, or model.  But…do I talk about Ford, Lincoln, F-250, or Continental?  All I know is that when the Kennedy grandkids get married to the Duck Dynasty nephew-kids (they met on Kentuk-e-harmony.com where the quality of your date is all relative) this is what they will drive home from the wedding.  Find this 1966 Lincoln Continental Truck currently bidding on ebay for $2,000 reserve-not-met with 5 days to go, located in Lynnfield, MA.  Tip from Ignacio.

You can’t fault the vision of someone who wanted to put the iconic suicide door Lincoln on top of a 4X4 long wheelbase pickup chassis.  It is like the combination of pork chops and applesauce, which at first glance appears to be some kind of bad joke, but the salty richness of medium-rare pork is offset by the delicate undertones of ripe honeycrisp apples mashed to oblivion.  I guess you can have your pork and eat it too?

The 460 cubic inch V8 engine and automatic transmission come with the F250 chassis, but out back the Continentruck as a sweet trick.  The rear trunk area is a disguised dump bed, great for…err…dumping stuff..

The interior has retained much of the Lincoln look, dashboard, door cards, but things like seats seem to have been donated from something else (the F250 maybe?).
