Lincoln Continental is a model name for a luxury car marketed by the Lincoln division of Ford Motor Company for 50 years. The Continental is a Lincoln nameplate that has seen use in a sub-division, the short-lived Continental Division of 1956–1957. As a Lincoln, the Continental nameplate saw use for 50 years, from 1939 to 1948 (skipping World War II) ,1958 to 2002 (skipping 1981, then 2003-2015).
Serving as the Lincoln flagship for its first three generations, the Continental name conveyed special cachet in the product line. In the 1961 redesign of the Lincoln line, the three-model line was consolidated down to the Continental, which served as the sole Lincoln sedan for the next 16 years. With the exception of the Lincoln Mark VIII, all versions of the Lincoln Mark Series of the personal luxury cars are based on a corresponding generation of the Continental.
