(first posted 6/10/2015)    How can we have Convertible Week without a four-door convertible Continental? Long, low, and lithe. Rival Cadillac may have been at the top of its styling game in the early-mid 1960s, effectively capturing the upper-class Zeitgeist – but I’d have one of these over any contemporary Caddy.

I found this one at the Mecum auction in May, in case the context of these photos doesn’t make it clear. It’s a beautiful restoration.

That Wedgwood blue interior is soooooo dreeeeeamy.

The four-door convertible Continental was a postwar anomaly, as this body style’s time otherwise ended before World War II. This 1936 Cadillac Series 75 convertible represented the genre at the auction, at least on the day I visited.

This is what constituted a luxury interior in the 1930s. That banjo-string steering wheel is a nice touch.

What other four-door convertibles can you think of? Year(s), makes, models, and photos if you’ve got ‘em, in the comments, please.
