The Continental was only seen in early Bond films.
In 'Goldfinger' a black Continental saloon was used by Goldfingers henchman Oddjob, the car ended up crushed into a square. Later in the film a Lincoln Continental convertible drives Bond to the plane supposed to take him to Washington DC to meet the President of the USA.
The Continental made its last appearance in 1965 in 'Thunderball', this time a Convertible version in blue, which was used by 007's as his rented car in Nassau.
In 1963 Lincoln sold 28.095 of the Sedan model (USD 6.270) and 3.138 of the Convertible model (USD 6.916). Every car had test ride of 20 km before leaving the factory.
