  1. Can anyone tell me how many 1947 Club Coupes were produced and if there is a record of the breakdown/number of exterior colors (i.e. how many Regal Blue, Valley Green, etc.) made? Any idea of how many are left? I am trying to determine how rare mine may be? Thanks
  2. I am in the process of restoring a 47 Club Coupe myself. Are you in Illinois? If so, what part?
  3. I ordered a manual from Earl and should receive it soon. My car is from California, fortunately rust free and the bottom is heavily covered as yours. It almost looks as if the car was never painted underneath with the exception of the thick undercoat.
  4. I will try to keep it as original as possible. I need to get the book to help me through the process, but want to thank you again for the assistance. I actually do the restorations for winter projects and the love of cars. Rarely sell and never show. thanks again.
  5. Thanks for the response. I like. The color of the car on the underside to accent the suspension.
  6. Thanks for the response. This is rexactly as mine appears, with the exception mine has heavy undercoating on the underbody and in the engine compartment. It actually looked factory.
  7. It is important to be a correct as possible so I will look the recommended reference. Thanks
  8. Thanks for the response. Logic would say it would. My car is rust free, but difficult to tell underneath. I really need a good photo log of an original unmolested car.
  9. It has been a challenge and a surprise. Did they paint the frame and body at the same time?
  10. I am in the process of restoring a 1947 Lincoln Club Coupe (Zephyr) and wondered if anyone had a good manual or book for getting all the paint items and reconstruction back to original as it was first delivered to the show room. Items I am questioning include, for example, was the body placed on the frame and both painted together. Mine appears to be spot welded together with little or any bolts holding the body to the frame. In doing a rotisserie restoration, it looks as if I have to have both blasted and painted together. Is this correct? Thanks for the help. I really want to put it back to original, but am finding limited information on the web to do so.
  11. I have heard horror stories of problems like yours. I would obviously like to have it correct. I have looked on the frame and so far have been unable to identify the VIN. I just purchased the car and have not started the restoration so have not spent enough time to find it or went to transfer the title.
  12. Thanks for the info. I will do so.
  13. Thanks for the response. The more I checked that is what I found. Obviously glad to find there was not some "switcho, changeo" on the car. My title appears to reflect the body tag on the firewall. Should I anticipate any issues transferring the title over? Do I dare try to make it right?
