This wonderful example was just released from a family that acquired the car in 1981 from the original owner. During their 35 plus year ownership they invested over $105,000 in a full restoration that presents wonderfully to this day. With legendary V12 power, stunning colors and full CCCA eligibility, this 1947 Lincoln Continental Convertible is sure to bring years of enjoyment to its next caretaker. We are proud to offer this extremely rare and sought-after post-war classic from the penultimate year of production to the most sophisticated collector or investor who appreciates the rarity of the Lincoln Continental. Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013, 16% in 2014 and 17% in 2015 while posting gains of 467% over the last 10 years.

    HISTORY OF THE LINCOLN CONTINENTAL
    The Lincoln Continental made its debut in 1940 and stemmed from Edsel Ford’s desire to build a high class, stylish luxury model to compete with the finest marques of Europe. Designed by E.T. “Bob” Gregorie, the Continental shared many characteristics of the Lincoln-Zephyr including the legendary flathead V12 engine. Production temporarily halted in 1942 when the U.S. entered World War II and resumed in 1946 with some styling updates. The death of Edsel Ford in 1943 caused a restructuring of Ford’s corporate management who deemed the design as too pre-war which resulted in the Continental ceasing production in 1948. The Continental name would not reappear until 1955 with the Continental Mark II, although the first generation Continentals remain highly prized among collector car circles. The first generation Continental is one of the few post-war models to be recognized by the Classic Car Club of America as a “full classic” and, to date, remain the last American V12-powered production automobile. Only 738 Continental Convertibles were assembled for 1947, making examples highly sought-after by collectors today.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
