For Sale: 1928 Lincoln Model 147A seven-passenger sedan


Recommended Posts

This Lincoln is very solid mechanically (I rebuilt the engine and went through the car mechanically). The car's serial number is 49600.

 

The 147A seven-passenger sedan body was built by the Murray company. 1,023 were built in 1928 which was the last year they were made.

 

I purchased the car in California from an ad in the AACA magazine and I believe the car spent all of its life in California prior to my acqusition. I know it was used in at least one movie: "The Kansas City Masacre." 

 

Numerous spares and literature come with this vehicle. Note damage to rear fenders shown in photos.

Lincoln $18,000 or best offer.

 

Car is located near downtown Atlanta, in the O4W area, if you're familiar with the city. This car has to go to a new owner.

 

Contact Harry at (404) 234-3506.

Greg, it was done before I purchased it. However, I have a copy of the movie... so you can watch them put the dents in it.

 

The movie is "The Kansas City Massacre"... if you Google you can see my car!

Heavens to Murdatroid!

That's more than a little scrape. I hope they compensated you Harry.

Yeah, you should see the other car(s).

See it happen here⬇️

I think it happened after the 28 minute 39 second mark but am not sure — it was kind of a blur.

A little more history on serial #49600. According to the records of the Ford Motor Co. , #49600 was assembled on Feb. 28, 1928 and shipped to the Edward Lowe Motors Co. in California on April 6 1928.

Harry, never, never look at asking prices

as realistic indications of value.  In recent 

years, prices from many dealers, and from

some optimistic sellers, may be double a car's

actual value.

 

Such asking prices can be ludicrous and irrelevant.

But for your car, best wishes on your sale!
