Description

SUPER CORRECT V12 CONTINENTAL, RARE CONVERTIBLE, INVESTMENT GRADE, QUALITY RESTO

This 1947 Lincoln Continental convertible is rolling opulence. So in a time when 1940s cars are already scarce, you're looking at one of the rarest amongst rarity. And with a terrific color package, rare features, and an all-around well-preserved appearance, this is a true upper-class classic.

We were still waking up from WWII in 1947, and people were lucky to get new tires, let alone new cars. So as '47 really got us back into civilian production, buying a new Lincoln Continental was a true event. In fact, the convertible model like this was the most expensive Continental available, and so it cost more than buying four standard Fords! That's exactly why you know this one is a special treat, and only 738 were produced this year. But more than just rarity, this one has been given that kind of care and investment so that over 70 years later, it can still command attention the moment it comes into view. It starts with the Regal Blue paint. Not only is it an appropriate name for such an affluent machine, but Lincoln people know a proper dark blue hue is how these cars were made to be presented. It also has a nice gloss to make this sunshine-friendly droptop a stunner. And when you add in the chrome of the dual grilles, large bumpers, headlight surrounds, factory wheel covers, and all the trim, this is an artful total package. It even has all the right ornamentation like the whitewall tires, rear fender skirts, and exposed rear tire caddy that was so cleverly presented that it would become the Continental's namesake on other vehicles.

While the black top is a nice dark pairing with the dark blue paint, this convertible looks even better when you take the roof down. After all, the deep red leather interior against the blue has a European level of flair. There is plenty of plush seating for family and friends, but you don't need any of them to have fun cruising. In fact, this has rare features for the time like power windows and a power convertible top. So you can go from enclosed luxury to a wind-in-your-hair experience without leaving the driver's seat. The dash is a beautifully symmetrical layout with your readouts in front of you, a mirrored artful display in front of the passengers, and the classic art deco-style AM radio still on display in the middle. So this '40s luxury machine really does keep a period-correct appearance. Even the steering wheel is correct as it reminds you about the superior powerhouse under the hood.

One of the best perks of owning a well-presented first-generation Continental is getting to lift the hood and seeing the Lincoln-Zephyr V12 in all its period-correct glory. We love how these are so long that they look like a Ford flathead on steroids. Plus, all the bolts, dual barrel downdraft carburetor, generator, correct hoses, oil bath air cleaner with correct decal, and much more all give this the kind of presentation were people will stop to point out the details. There is unmistakable power and poise from the dozen cylinders propelling this luxury machine forward. And you control its full force thanks to the three-speed all-synchromesh manual transmission.

Properly presented to take advantage of its everlasting affluence, this is the classic Lincoln that is a true stunner today. Don't let this one slip away, call today!
