130 HP, 305 cid, L-Head V-12 Engine, 3-Speed Transmission Chassis No. 8H175765 Considered one of the most beautiful creations to ever come out of Ford Motor Company's design studio, and a pet project of the company President, Edsel B. Ford, the Lincoln Continental is a hand-crafted masterpiece on wheels. One of the few post-war cars that is recognized and welcomed by the Classic Car Club of America, the basic architecture of this model has set the standard of what a luxury vehicle should be. This interesting example is one of 847 coupes produced, which truly was the end of an era. Powered by the one of last production V-12 engines built in the USA, these cars were assembled on a special line at the Lincoln plant in Detroit, Michigan. This car appears to have been given a cosmetic restoration a number of years ago. Today it does show a patina of time and some wear and tear, but it is a solid and complete car. Fitted with the grille-mounted fog lights, it has its original hood ornament, plus the vent window guards, both fender skirts and that trademark "Continental" rear mounted spare tire. It is also fitted with original radio, clock, heater and hydraulically operated power windows. We have been told that this is a turnkey ready to go car, but has been on display for a number of years so a bit of an awakening would be recommended. Considered a "classic" from the day it was new, this could be very a Continental moment for the new owner with plenty of admirers of the finest designs in automobiles.
