Description for Lincoln Continental 1947

1947 V-12 Lincoln Continental Convertible. Exceptionally clean and well maintained example just out of 60 years single ownership. The owner is not only a collector of V-12 Lincolns but a leading and longstanding member of the V-12 club. He has for many years run one of the foremost parts supply companies specifically for these cars. His knowledge is encyclopedic and has been involved with the parts and restorations of Lincoln V-12s around the world. You could not find a more knowledgable owner with the unique resources at hand to maintain one of these cars. The car, over his ownership has received a complete refurbishment. In that time it has turned maybe 1000 miles. ( the mileage listed is a filler for ebay. Real mileage is unknown) The paint, interior and NOM V-12 have all been redone. The cosmetic restoration was done with all brand new Lincoln service parts purchased from the dealer back in the early 1960's. The bulk of the chrome, which is in excellent condition, was all new in the 60's and has never been redone. It is stunning to look at. It has always been stored inside and has never seen inclement weather.The interior is the original shade of green leather and has some wear to the driver's seat pad. The rest of the interior is excellent. All trim, latches, knobs and buttons are there and mostly original. All gauges work as they should. The dash is perfect as are the Wilton carpets. The same level or trim and quality extends in the never used trunk area which is replete with tools, jack and books. The tan top is new and very nice. Never put down, it retains its original taut feel. There is minimal surface rust on a few of the grommets and a small spot or two on the top. The chrome top mechanism is excellent.Exterior is very nice. The original shade of green paint shows nicely with minimal imperfections as one would expect over time. All trim, badges, mirrors and hubcaps are present and excellent. The V-12 rides on a set of new Diamondback wide white wall radials. There is no rust, surface or through anywhere on the body.There is no rust through anywhere on the chassis. It is very solid needing no repair. There may be some surface imperfections, but these are not structural and could be compounded or otherwise cleaned away. The inner fenders are clean and rust free. The exhaust is new. Suspension and brake are up to spec and work well.The non matching numbers V-12 was rebuilt recently under the supervision of the current owner. It fires right up, runs very well without smoke, horrible noises or overheating. The engine compartment has been detailed. The paint on the walls and firewall is excellent. The car currently runs a modern Ultima battery. This will have a Lincoln battery cover on it at the time of sale. The Borg Warner overdrive transmission has no issues.All in, this is an exceptional opportunity to buy a car with unheard of longterm ownership by an industry leader. A car which has received the best of everything with very little use. It is not a concours car but is very show worthy and could easily be taken to a higher level. To find a car of this caliber that can be driven and enjoyed proudly is very rare today.
