Frank Lloyd Wright stated “The Lincoln
Continental is the most beautiful car
ever built.” This car is a true classic
designated by the Classic Car Club of
America. The VIN is recorded at the
Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn MI. This
particular vehicle was the 187th of 200 produced.
The 1942 Lincoln Continental coupe, a
super rare car with only 200 coupes being
built before WW II prematurely ended
production, features a Flathead V-12 engine with 3-speed manual transmission. This car is a beautiful restoration with Victoria Coach maroon by
Lincoln, with maroon cloth interior,
accented by the correct factory gold interior trim.
The 1942 Continentals are the rarest of
all Continentals and represents a
transition from the 1940-41 models to the boxier '46-48 models. Yet this style carries over the simpler more elegant straight bar grille trim and enjoys 1942 state of the art technology with pneumatic powered windows and antenna.
This car underwent a full frame-up
restoration with an engine rebuild.
