FOR SALE - Rare 1941 Lincoln Continental Cabriolet # 233.

This 1941 Lincoln is being offered for sale. It has sat quietly in a garage since late 1961 or early 1962. The most likely reason is because of the possibility of a blown head gasket and or cracked head, and thus the engine seems to be seized. Upon recent examination, all spark plugs were pulled and it was found on the front passenger side cylinder, rust on the spark plug electrode. All other plugs were very clean. Oil was also found to be present in the radiator.

There is an enormous amount of spare parts that would indicate a major reconditioning of this fine vehicle was to be carried out. These include a spare Ford flathead V-12 engine of which has been turned over by hand (not seized), three other engine blocks, various iron heads, several aluminum intakes, transmission, drive shaft, torque tube, rear differential, what appears to be a reconditioned crank shaft, a complete set of used fenders, and a huge collection of various NOS parts (new old stock), ranging from a new fender to bearings, pistons, rods, valves, trim pieces, weather stripping, and wire harnesses and the list goes on, all of which are available as well. Also available is a large collection of original Ford service manuals that date from the mid 1930s to the late 1940s.<O:p></O:p>

The vehicle is in remarkably good shape, and is a real “barn find”. There is actually a shine to the original paint in most areas, and no dents, or major scratches exist. Even more importantly, no major rust has been found in any areas of the undercarriage or floorboards. The leather upholstery is still very pliable but some staining is present. The convertible top appears to be original as well and is still very supple and has no holes or rips. The engine bay also seems to be in very original condition. Of an interesting note the engine appears to have been customized with the addition of a twin carburetor intake, which was made to look OEM as possible at the time. After careful examination there seems to be little if anything missing of the car. This rare find is located in Columbia, SC.<O:p</O:p

This car is being offered for sale at $45,000.

This is a very clean and original car. Also have a 1941 Lincoln Continental Coupe for sale as well. It is a #2 restoration, and is a fully working / driving car.
