For Sale: 1941 Lincoln Continental in Mankato, Minnesota

Vehicle Description

This is not your typical 1941 lincoln! This 1941 Lincoln was in one of the most quintessential movie scenes, in one of the biggest movies in the history of film! That's right, The Godfather! This was the car that Sonny Corleone (played by James Caan) was driving when he was ambushed at the toll booth and was gunned down. There were three cars involved in that scene. The first car that he drives up in also known as the "hero" car sold at auction years ago and is currently owned by Jay Leno. Then there were two so-called "bullet" cars... this is one of those, and this is the first time this car has been advertised since 1976! The other bullet car is in a private collection , sitting in a bit of a dilapidated shed and is in disrepair. This car is unrestored and of course still shows all of the holes from the movie. In fact if you look at the scene when James Caan gets out of the car you can line up the bullet holes perfectly from the movie to this car. We do have a few things such as The Godfather movie car license plate that was used at the auction the car sold at in 1976, we have the car list from the production designer Dean Tavoularis showing the manifest of all the movie cars as well as a few other interesting pieces of history. This car was purchased at Kruse auction in 1976 where there were several movie cars being sold, and was then put into storage and hadn't been seen until approximately 2021, where an acquaintance of that owner who had passed away came to the rescue. We have driven the car up and down the frontage road and in the parking lot, but if you have intentions of driving it more significantly than that you'll probably want to give it a once-over to be sure it's long trip road ready. Comes with clear title. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a very significant piece of filmmaking history!
