1942 Lincoln Continental Premiere

Mileage: 0

Hurricane, UT | Posted September 5, 2020

$25,000

I am selling my 1942 Lincoln Continental Coupe. This is how this particular car came about: The president of the Ford Motor Company, Edsel Ford, had returned from a trip to Europe in 1938 and approached his good friend and head designer, Bob Gregorie, and asked him to build a 'Strickly Continental" car for his personal use. Mr Gregorie took the chassis of the existing Lincoln Zephyr and moved the driver's seat back, he elongated the entire front end, then lowered the roof by three inches and sectioned and lowered the cowl by four inches. When this hand built car was finished it was shipped to Florida where Edsel Ford drove it around Palm Beach. Very quickly Edsel's wealthy friends and neighbors were asking for one of these luxurious, hand crafted automobiles for themselves. This inspired Edsel to use his influence as President of the Ford Motor Company to have a production version built. The first series-produced Continentals were constructed in December 1939 and were little changed from the prototype. The design remained unchanged until 1942, at which time a larger V-12 engine was fitted and the grille and front trim were redesigned for a sleeker appearance. It is easy to see why the Museum of Modern Art selected the Lincoln Continental as one of the world's eight automotive 'Works of art'. Production of the 1942 Lincoln Continental had barely gotten started when the guns of war put an end to its production. Only 200 of the club coupes like this one were built before production ceased. This car has the larger, 306 cubic-inch flathead V-12 and has cast iron cylinder heads replaceing the earlier aluminum heads from previous years. The engine of this car has under 1000 miles since it was re-built. It rides on 4 wide whitewall tires and it has chrome hubcaps. The car is painted maroon and has the 'Ball and Wing' mascot that was only used in 1942. This car is a very easy starter, it is mechanically quiet, very smooth, and the overdrive works as it should. Because the car was so much lower than cars of its day, it handles like a dream. If you examine the photos closely, you will see that the car's paint has many flaws, but it is still an absolutely gorgeous car. The seats and door panels are in pretty good shape, and under the hood looks very nice. This car is not a show car, but it is very, very, nice! Its an fun and easy car to drive, and it really turns heads everywhere it goes. I am asking $25,000 for my Lincoln - If this sounds like a car you might enjoy owning, give me a call and I will give you all the details and we can hammer out a deal...
