MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to offer this rare 1941 Lincoln Continental Cabriolet. With just 850 built in 1941, you won\'t find many other examples left. This rarely seen V12 Lincoln 2 door coupe was the precipitant of an extensive correct restoration and it really shows! We are selling this awesome vehicle to satisfy an estate for a longtime friend.
Dressed in Volanta Coach Maroon paint, the car\'s exterior is in great shape, with a few minor blemishes visible at close range. A quick way to identify the 41s are by the novel way to open the doors, via pushbuttons. A second way is to see parking lights perched atop the front fenders. All windows and windshield are in good order and the vehicle\'s lights, including the amber driving lights perched above the bumper, are also in good shape. The coupe rolls on Firestone Deluxe Champion Gum-Dipped Tires with wide whites, size 7.00-16, surrounding full Lincoln V-12 moon hubcaps. All of the body panels are straight and in good shape and the bumpers are in near-excellent condition. The engine bay is tidy and the correct V12 engine looks marvelous!
Similar in design to the 90Â° Ford flathead V-8 introduced for 1932, the Lincoln-Zephyr H Series V-12 had a narrower 75Â° between cylinder banks. The engine used aluminum-alloy heads and cast-steel pistons, as well as two water pumps. It also had a unique distributor with a coil assembly that actually consisted of two coils, one for each cylinder bank. Though the Zephyr V-12 no more resembled previous Lincoln engines than the ubiquitous V-8 (despite sharing the latter\'s stroke), it was more like a \"12-cylinder Ford\" than a classic multi-cylinder powerplant in character. Ford improved the engine by adopting hydraulic valve lifters for 1938 and cast-iron heads and oiling improvements for 1942.
Inside, the tan leather and cloth seats are in excellent condition, the vehicle\'s matching carpet is in very good order. The headliner is in similar condition and the dashboard is in one piece and sprinkled with gold trim, as are all of the interior trim pieces. The wipers and the horn are inoperable. The two-spoke steering wheel is in great shape, the door panels are in very good order and the mirrors and shift lever are in good condition. The clock in the dash still ticks and finishing off the interior\'s look is the factory AM deluxe radio.
What started as Edsel Ford\'s custom-bodied personal car to tool around Florida during a vacation in 1939 became Lincoln\'s signature model. Styled by Bob Gregorie, the original Continental was one of the first cars to recognized as more than a machine by New York\'s Museum of Modern Art and the Classic Car Club of America. Gregorie used the Lincoln-Zephyr as the Continental\'s starting point. The Continental was seven inches lower than the standard Lincoln, eliminating the need for running boards for ingress and egress. The hood was nearly parallel to the front fenders. Chrome was confined to the grille and instead of door handles, Gregorie specified the pushbuttons.
Competition to this Lincoln in 1941 included Cadillac\'s Series 62 coupe Chrysler\'s New Yorker Coupe and Packard\'s 180 Coupe. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
