68' Continental Transmission Issue


New member
Hi Everyone,

I am new to the forum and looking for some help on an issue with my 68'. I am having an issue with the car where it will shift into reverse but when it is shifted into drive, 1 or 2, the transmission will not drop into gear. The issue has been fairly intermittent until lately where it simply won't work now. The transmission fluid is good to go, checked hot, and I cannot seem to find anything that is generally out of place. Has anyone else ever come across this issue and have some direction of where I should be looking?

This forum is for the newest Continentals 17 - 19. For a 68, you need to visit a reliable transmission shop in your area. After fifty years, the transmission seals and bands may have finally quit due to wear and tear.
