  • Description

Originally conceived as one of Edsel Ford's personal cars in 1939, the attention from its good looks pushed Ford to put Edsel's custom Lincoln design into production as the Continental in 1940. Based on the Zephyr and offered in both coupe and convertible forms, the Continental shared the Zephyr's 125 inch wheelbase and twelve cylinder engine, but had a longer hood, was lower, was sectioned by 3 inches and was $3000 dollars, almost double the cost of the Zephyr.  For the 1941 model year the Continental was refined, looking very similar to the 1940 cars but having design refinements such as push button door handles and upgraded trim. The 1941 Lincoln Continental is arguably one of the best looking immediate pre-war American cars and one of the best looking of all time. For 1942, the Continentals featured new, more squared fenders and a redesigned frontal appearance found on all Lincolns of that year. When production resumed following WWII, in 1946, the Continental and other Lincolns sparkled with new, bolder and handsome grillwork that gave the cars more presence on the road. The final first-generation Continentals were produced as 1948 models.

 
Offered here is a very nice example of a 1947 Continental coupe featuring the famous and unmistakable bold postwar grille. A well taken care of car that also features dual "Lincoln" engraved windshield spotlights which really add to its already impressive presence. All around a very original car with beautiful two tone green leather and cloth upholstery matching the dark green exterior color, as original, as well as its beautiful original transparent steering wheel. The paint is very presentable and the brightwork is in wonderful condition. It runs and drives very nicely and the three speed transmission is accompanied by an overdrive. The twelve cylinder engine is in great running order. Overall this is a very nice continental coupe that is ready for spring and summer driving or show.
