1970 Lincoln Continental
Exterior Paint Colors and Codes

Most dramatic change since 1961

With its dramatic new styling, the 1970 Lincoln Continental had a sleek body that was especially well suited to the new paint colors and allowed them to really sparkle. Long, uninterrupted panels emphasized the simplicity and elegance of the design.

Continuity of look was important to Lincoln, and this design took Lincoln boldly into the new decade, where it would prove to be a greater challenge to its competition than ever before.
