Edsel Ford entrusted his favored stylist, Bob Gregorie, to design a customized Lincoln-Zephyr Convertible Coupe for him to drive during a winter vacation in Florida. The car was so impressive that it was soon put into production. The result, called the Continental as a reflection of its styling influences, would remain part of the Lincoln line until 1948.

The Continental is considered by many to be the first true 'personal luxury' car, as it was a large two-door, five-passenger automobile that had dual-personality appeal - being both sporty and elegant - and a design that has made it a lasting legend.

This Lincoln Continental Cabriolet was acquired by Malcolm S. Pray Jr. several years ago. The car was restored in the mid-1990s and the odometer currently shows just 12,825 miles, likely since restoration. It is finished in Lincoln Maroon paint and there are hydraulic pushbutton doors.
