RARE CONTINENTAL, VERY NICE CAR, R134 AC, UPGRADED 305CI V8, MODERNIZED CLASSIC!
There was an absolute top-of-the-line domestic car for the discerning few in 1941, and this Lincoln Continental is it. Thanks to a few very thoughtful upgrades, you can pick up this timeless symbol of class while enjoying modern conveniences.
Edsel Ford rebelled against his father's mass market sensibilities by building a car for people in his substantial wealth class. He emphasized design, which means these first generation cars show their boldness with sleek lines rather than adding chrome. This was the car he could have proudly driven in Europe with its waterfall grille, subtle red detailing in the bumpers, push button door handles, and an exposed rear tire that was so artfully presented that it would become the Continental's namesake on other vehicles. But look a little closer and you can tell this one is even more unique. The silver paint has the great shine that only comes from a modern respray. Those who get even closer start to notice there's also custom maroon pinstriping on the front and rear. So is this elegant machine also a hot rod?
Open the door and there's a supple red interior that provides the kind of luxurious room in both the front and the rear that you would expect from such an elite car. When you slip inside, a very original Lincoln wheel with semi-ring chrome horn greets you. But just like the exterior you start to see the interesting red pinstriping again on the polished wood dash. If you keep scanning the panel, you'll start to see some modern convinces hidden within this classic luxury. Unlike the original Continental, you now get an AM/FM/CD player for modern music, supplemental gauges for better info, electric power windows, and ice cold air conditioning running R-134a.
Of all the modifications, the one under the hood is the most interesting. Some Continentals had a 305 cubic-inch motor. This one no longer has the complicated V12, but retains this same displacement in an easy to service and/or upgrade small-block Chevy V8. This power plant might have a Holley four-barrel carburetor and aluminum intake manifold for a bit of hot rod flair, but this Continental Club Coupe never losses its luxury nature. In fact, the more modern motor has allowed the manual transmission to be replaced by an easy going three-speed automatic. Going down the road in style is exceptionally effortless, too, with features such as power steering and the modern BF Goodrich name on those classic-looking whitewall tires.
There were only 847 Club Coupes built in 1941. It will be hard to find one of the few remianing that will be so easy to drive and live with everyday. Don't miss this opportunity. Call today!!!
