THE LINCOLN CONTINENTAL

Lincoln finally abandoned Henry Leland's superbly engineered V-8 in 1933, becoming an all-V-12 line that year of full size, classically engineered automobiles. To meet the market's need for a lower-priced luxury offering in 1936, Lincoln introduced the Lincoln Zephyr with brilliant styling abundant in art deco details. Featuring an all-steel body with full steel roof, it was powered by a new V-12 engine derived from the strong and proven Ford V-8. Four cylinders were added, and the cylinder angle was changed to 75º to give even firing impulses. Aluminum cylinder heads were employed for better cooling and combustion control. Lincoln remained "all V-12" but with only 267 cubic inches displacement (enlarged to 292 cubic inches in 1940), the Zephyr was economical both to build and to operate.

Lincoln's showpiece in 1940 was the brilliantly styled Continental, a model that has rightfully become a legend among American luxury marques. The first Continental was rushed to completion, and in order for it to be ready in time for its introduction almost all exterior brightwork was eliminated, thus creating the elegant, unembellished styling that became one of the Continental's hallmarks. It continued to be built through the 1948 model year and has been designated as a "Full Classic" by the Classic Car Club of America, one of the very few post-war cars with that honor.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This 1941 Lincoln Continental has been tastefully upgraded to its Resto-Mod mechanical and cosmetic configuration and features custom bodywork modifications done to the roof, as well as a full custom interior with many power amenities such as air conditioning, custom gauges, power windows and locks. Under the hood lurks a powerful Mustang 5.0 high-performance engine, and the chassis has been upgraded with Mustang independent front suspension, a posi-traction rear axle, and 4-wheel disc brakes. The Custom Lincoln resided in Florida before joining the Byers collection and is known to have attracted trophies at various custom car shows. Finished in an elegant dark green metallic color, this powerful and unique Continental would be a great edition to any Hot Rod collection.
