The beautiful lines of the Lincoln-Zephyr made the transformation into the Continental design an easy one. All Continentals were essentially hand built and, naturally, production was limited.
The Continental was three inches lower than the Zephyr and its hood was seven inches longer. The earliest Continentals did not have a spare tire cover; that came later along with rear fender gravel shields and rear bumper splash shields. Power was supplied by the Lincoln-Zephyr 12-cylinder motor.
Continental interiors featured an instrument panel used in the Lincoln-Zephyr limousines that used a gold (macoid) trim that was also used on the car's interior hardware.
This car is number 111 and was finished on February 12th of 1940. It has been restored to the exact specification of the original build sheet. Restoration was completed in 2008 and has since been recognized as an excellent example by many car organizations.Also photographed at :
