1958 Lincoln Continental
The 1958 Continental is also one of the ugliest cars ever built. It was a full-size four-door sedan with a long, sleek body with clean lines and a minimalist grille. Like the ’58 Thunderbird, the interior had a dashboard filled with gauges and modern upgrades including power windows and air conditioning (via Hemmings). But people just didn’t go for the ’58 Continental because of its styling.
The Continental had a V8 engine pumping out 375 horsepower. It was a highly powerful car for its time as a result. It also had smooth-riding suspension and power steering, which made it easy to handle on the road. The ’58 Continental was a car that had all of the luxury features that you’d want in a car, but its styling was downright hideous even for the period.
