$54,800

Harry's Thoughts

We rarely sell anything custom. When we do, it will be very cool and special. This Lincoln custom appears to be completely stock. Only its exhaust note and performance tell the real story. It's a blast to drive with great performance and just feels right.

THE ESSENTIALS

This is a very well-done mild resto-custom of a fully restored 1941 Lincoln Continental Convertible. Imagine, the only changes were the installation of a crate 350 cu in Chevy engine, conversion of the electrical system to 12-volts and a power brake unit. The transmission, overdrive, clutch, brakes and the rest of the drive train and suspension are all stock. The steering and shifting feels rock-solid and well-engineered. And cosmetically, most concours would love to have this on their field (except the engine change, etc.).

Featured in a beautifully prepared black livery with a correct power black Haartz cloth convertible top with red piping, this has the right look. The chrome is gorgeous and the new wide white wall radials set it off! Nearly everything about this car would fool most collectors as being totally stock. The owner has been asked by the CCCA to show the car at their events!

The red leather is of high quality and correct for the car. There has been tastefully installed an Alpine stereo and CD changer in the dashboard.

We think this would be the ultimate classic to drive to work on Fridays and enjoy over the weekend. It is incredibly easy to drive and feels like a classic in every way, except the throaty burble from the exhaust. It has benefited from the installation of modern oil pressure and temperature gauges and uses the original voltage and fuel gauges.

The restoration and 350 conversion was performed by Jerry Richman from Brockton, Mass.  One previous owner enjoyed the Lincoln for at least 20 years.  The restoration quality is very nice in all respects.

Lincoln Continental Convertible

At its launch, the fourth-generation Lincoln Continental was offered solely as a four-door, as either a sedan or a convertible. For the first time on a Lincoln since 1951, rear doors were rear-hinged (suicide doors). To alert drivers of open doors, Lincoln fitted the dashboard with a "Door Ajar" warning light as seen on many modern automobiles. Latching at the B-pillar with a vacuum-operated central locking system, convertibles used an abbreviated pillar while sedans were "pillared hardtops.” In the configuration, a thin B-pillar supported the roof structure while all four doors utilized frameless door glass in the style of a hardtop or convertible; the layout would become used by several Ford Motor Company sedans during the 1960s and 1970s. In what would be the first four-door convertible from a major American manufacturer after World War II, the Lincoln Continental convertible was fitted with a power-operated top on all examples. Deriving its mechanism from the Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner hardtop convertible, the Continental was fitted with a fabric roof that stored under a rear-hinged deck lid/filler panel. In a similar fashion as the Skyliner, to access the trunk for storage, the deck lid was opened electrically without raising or lowering the roof.
