8.41 Lincoln Continental
///////////////Price reduction: $10,500/////// video of it running Running driving Rare V12 41 Lincoln Continental Restoration has begun with a former owner contracting the re-chroming of the front and rear bumpers and miscellaneous trim pieces with triple plate, including the restoration of the goregous hood ornament. The front and rear seats have been treated to high-end reupholstering as well as the door pulls and arm rests. The rare original steering wheel was also restored, but suffered some minor cracking due to poor storage. The original search/seek radio with new buttons is in the trunk. All parts, including interior push button door latches, logo scripts, bits and pieces and a few spare parts go with the car. All hub caps and wheel trim rings are on the car. All glass is in the car and intact with some delamination on the rear vent windows. The frame is solid from front to back. The body is solid with some corrosion and perforations on the seam between the right rear fender body. There’s some minor rust perforation on the driver’s side floor, but the floor is solid as is the trunk. In 1938, the Continental began as an incredible styling exercise championed by Edsel Ford and appeared only in limited production numbers. Even in 1941, only 850 Club Coupes were built. The '41 Continental represented innovation, elegance, luxury, and status in its time, and it still does today. Its flathead V-12 provided smooth, quiet power; its craftsmanship and materials were revered; and its styling was renowned as one of the most beautiful pre-war coachwork designs. These rare beauties are understandably recognized as CCCA Full Classics. Historically, the original 1940 and 1941 Continentals have achieved superstar status. The New York Museum of Modern Art recognized this desirable marque as a significant modern design achievement. Here’s a chance to take this automobile to the next level without breaking the bank. It’s all there, including a can of original nuts and bolts and ‘goodies.’ With a little work, the brakes will be working as it also has a brand new master cylinder installed. With a little work and not a lot of money, the car could be a one-of-a-kind “rat-rod� a kind of V-12 “Hot Rod Lincoln� that no one else has. The car sat in apart in a barn for about 25 years before it was partially reassembled and sold to me. It’s a great project, but over my head and out of my league. It needs someone to take its former glory. The chrome cost $4,800 and the upholstery was in the $4,000 range.
