The first-ever generation of the Continental was about luxury and
exclusivity. The custom build of this 1947 Lincoln Continental
Convertible takes that idea and adds in a full custom build that
makes it a true 1 of 1. So check out all the upgrades, including
the big block power, adjustable air ride suspension, leather
interior, and absolutely slick style that makes this coolest
Lincoln you can get your hands on right now.
The Continental was for the true upper class. So this one only
seems fitting to be finished in the kind of sleek black that
belongs on a grand piano. And that same piano-like style loves to
highlight the extra slick curves of this custom body. Frenched
headlights, shaved door handles, sport mirrors, and deleted trim
really let the light roll smoothly across the whole car. Even the
rear end and hallmark continental kit has been given a custom sleek
style. The unique grille, sunken hood ornament, clear headlights,
shortened windshield, and integrated Cadillac-style taillights all
show off an amazing amount of custom work on this metal-bodied car.
So you just know this is going to take home some trophies. And if
the judges were not yet impressed, you can show them how the big
20-inch wire wheels expertly tuck into the body when you lower the
adjustable air ride suspension.
The black canvas lift-off top has a true cool cabriolet style, but
really, this is the kind of custom that was made to be open to the
world. There's just something extra bold about red leather against
black, and so this custom Continental loves to be radiant with its
luxury. Details matter here, and so the black ostrich inserts in
the seats match the door panels and center console. And the only
thing on the ultra-smooth dash is the ultra-bright AutoMeter gauge
pack. This is built with modern comfort in mind, and so you have
power front seats, power windows, power locks, keyless entry, a
tilt steering wheel, an AM/FM/CD stereo, and provisions for R134a
air conditioning that likely just need a recharge since the vehicle
has sat some recently while being in a collection.
The engine bay has a beautiful custom style where the long top
piece seems to almost want to mimic the V12 style that originally
powered this Continental. And while the valve covers say Lincoln,
this is really a Chevy 454 cubic-inch big block V8. The low mileage
on the odometer reflects since this shining motor was installed.
And it has the right features, like an Edelbrock four-barrel
carburetor, Edelbrock intake, Sanderson headers, and a dual exhaust
with Flowmaster mufflers. The Th400 three-speed automatic
transmission was designed to handle big block power, and this feeds
a stout 12-bolt rear end. Plus, an upgraded suspension, power
steering, power brakes, and Wilwood front discs make for an easy
There were less than 850 examples of this Continental model
