1947 Lincoln Continental --

Lincoln Continentals from 1939 to 1941 shared largely the same body design with each other; based on the Lincoln-Zephyr, the Continental received few updates from year to year. For the 1942 model year, all Lincoln models were given squared-up fenders, and a revised grille. The result was a boxier, somewhat heavier look in keeping with then-current design trends, but perhaps less graceful in retrospect. 1942 production was shortened, following the entry of the United States into World War II; the attack on Pearl Harbor led to the suspension of production of automobiles for civilian use. After World War II, the Lincoln division of Ford returned the Continental to production as a 1946 model; Lincoln dropped the Zephyr nomenclature following the war, so the postwar Continental was derived from the standard Lincoln (internally H-Series). To attract buyers, the design was refreshed with updated trim, distinguished by a new grille. For 1947, walnut wood trim was added to the interior.[7] Following the death of Edsel Ford in 1943, Ford Motor Company re-organized its corporate management structure, which led to the 1946 departure of the Continental's designer Bob Gregorie. 1948 would become the last year for the Continental, as the division sought to redevelop its new 1949 model line as an upgraded version of the Mercury; the expensive personal-luxury car no longer had a role at Lincoln. This is a very rare 1947 Lincoln Continental convertible one of 738 produced with only a fraction still remaining. This is a stunning color combination with a White exterior and maroon leather interior and big whitewall tires just screams elegance. the original V12 292 c.i engine that is mated to a three speed manual transmission with Columbia overdrive. The body is straight and the paint is nice. All of the chrome trim and bright work are shiny and bright as they should be. The interior is in fantastic condition with no real visible signs of wear at all. The das, steering whee, door panel, gauge, interior chrom, bezels convertible top frame are all in fantastic condition as well. This is a very nice example of a rare 1947 Lincoln continental convertible and is priced to sell. Please call 314-594-1404 to purchase or with any questions. 314-594-1404
