1947 Lincoln Continental

1947 Lincoln Continental Coupe Beautiful ’47 Continental finished in Black over Red/Taupe! Many options! One of 831 Coupes! CCCA Full Classic! When Edsel Ford planned a Florida vacation for March 1939. he requested that FoMoCo’s chief stylist Eugene T. “Bob” Gregorie create a special automobile for the occasion. Mr. Gregorie sat down in late 1938 and within an hour had drawn one of the most beautiful war-era classic and one that stood out so much in Florida that Edsel came back convinced that he could “easily sell one thousand. ” The car was motivated by the existing Lincoln-Zephyr V12 and hidden under a long. sleek hood. There were no running boards and the car’s signature rear-mounted covered spare tire would go on to be named after its first application on this car. The Mark 1 continental saw various changes over its life. most notably the revised front end after its post-war reintroduction. All in all. it survived for nearly 10 years and today is considered a highly desirable but attainable car. and one that has achieved CCCA Full Classic status. The 1948 Lincoln Continental is still the last example of a major US automaker putting a V12 in one of their cars. We are very excited to offer this 1947 Lincoln Continental Coupe! Finished in an always classic shade of black over Red and taupe leather and cloth. this car really stands out! its original 292ci V12 Lincoln-Zephyr power plant producing an estimated 130 horsepower and 3-speed manual transmission with overdrive. this wonderful example runs exceptionally well! The car is fitted with several notable options including signal-seeking AM radio with fender antenna. cowl vent. dual outside side-view mirrors. 15” steel “Lincoln” wheels fitted with Firestone 7. 00-15 Deluxe Champion gum-dipped wide whitewall tires. continental spare tire. rear fender skirts. locking glove box. dash clock. hydraulic windows. heater/defrost. front & rear bumperettes and extensions. carpeted trunk. and more! This Continental showcases one exterior repaint completed approximately five years ago but the interior upholstery and chrome are original. As such. both will show signs of use but are very presentable. Recent service within the last few years includes a battery. new tires. brakes and both water pumps. Mechanically. the car is in tip-top shape. These Lincoln Flathead V12s are known for being temperamental but this car fires right up with a little choke and runs down the road very nicely. For someone looking for an affordable and stylish way to commute in post-war V12 style. there is no better choice than this. The mileage of 50. 78 is said to be original. This represents one of 1. 69 Continentals built in 1947 and one of only 831 coupes. Additionally. it is a CCCA full classic! We would invite any interested parties to call with further questions!
