Description for Lincoln Continental 1947

I am offering up for sale my 1947 Lincoln Continental Hollywood Convertible that was custom made for the 1940's superstar Rita Hayworth!!! This car was shipped directly to California from the factory where it. and one other were customized into "Hollywood Convertibles" at the famous Carson Top Shop . It is believed that this car appears on the set of Ritas Blockbuster "The Lady From Shanhai". and also is in several photos with the actress. all the documentation from the Henry ford Museum . Only 785convertibles were manufactured that year. It came pace car yellow from the factory. This car has all the signs of being done by Glen Hauser who was known for the eye brows over the headlights. Frenching the tail lights. shaving the door handles. emblems. nd gas door. as well as the namesake Carson top. My car has been upgraded to a rebuilt 1985 chevy 350 engine with some mods done to it. Also a turbo 350 automatic transmission. power steering. brakes. windows. and trunk. The car does not currently run as it has been sitting for a few months. however the engine was recently rebuilt and installed. I welcome any information/questions. and will help with the logistics. Winning bidder will be responsible for shipping cost. I will require a $5. 00 deposit to be paid within 24 hours of sale ending from the winning bidder. I am flexible with how that deposit will be transferred. and will make arrangements with the winner. Thank you so much for your interest. Good Luck!!!
