Like other American manufacturers Lincoln re-introduced its pre-war Continental when wartime production restrictions were lifted in 1946. The beautiful Continental styling, now a monument to the memory of Edsel Ford, Continued relatively unchanged including power from the 305 cubic inch, 130hp L-head V-12. After building 466 in 1946 Lincoln turned out 1,569 in 1947 and another 1,299 in 1948 before the Continental ceased production, effectively ending the classic era by phasing out one of the most beautiful, refined and stylish automobiles ever built. This 1947 Continental Cabriolet is a Classic Car Club of America Premier award-winning restoration. Finished in dark maroon, it has tan leather upholstery and a black cloth top and top boot both bound in complementary maroon leather. The exterior is distinguished by standard rear wheel skirts. Whitewall tires are set off with hub caps and bright trim rings. Restored a few years ago, it has been consistently and sympathetically maintained while being driven with care. The quality of the workmanship and materials employed in its restoration is apparent in its continued excellent appearance and function. Recognized by the Museum of Modern Art in 1950 as one of just eight automotive works of art and by the CCCA as a Full Classic (tm), this is an automobile anyone will be proud to own, drive and show.
