1941 Lincoln Continental ConvertibleResto-Custom, Restored, 350V8, Otherwise Stock, Gorgeous and
SOLD to Georgia!! 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 previous owner enjoyed the Lincoln for at least 20 years, and was likely the person responsible for the beautiful restoration. Unfortunately, we don’t know the detailed history for the car, as it was purchased at an auction a couple of years ago. But we can see the quality of the restoration. It would make sense that this was a full correct restoration and we bet the very temperamental original V12 engine failed and the owner decided to make it dependable with the installation of the 350 V8. Nothing else makes sense.
