1942 Lincoln Continental
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.
The car
runs great with mostly original parts
with
exception of electrical fuel pump which
was
added for reliability. Previous 1st

Goodrich Silvertown 7.00-15 LD 4 ply
