1940 Lincoln Continental

Classic Facts

21,000 original miles... dual stage repaint in Black Emerald PPG Metallic with custom Tan leather interior and new Tan canvas convertible top... Excellent restored condition...

Built under the direction of Edsel Ford starting in 1939, this Lincoln Continental from 1940 was first purchased by Mr. & Mrs. H B Hall of Dallas, Texas. When the couple divorced, Mrs. Hall retained the car.

In 1965, she sold the car to Arthur Guy of Houston, Texas. In 1968, it was sold to the third owner, Joe Cooper Jr. of Hot Springs, Arkansas. Joe babied the car for the next 36 years and sold it with only about 10,000 original miles to Owner #4 that brought the car to Florida. Owner #4 had been searching for a rust free Continental of this vintage to complete a restored restoration and travel with his wife to long distance car shows.

Copies of old titles document the ownership chain

The restoration was completed in 2006 with an engine swap of a rebuilt of a 1977 Lincoln 460 engine. Due to the plans for long distance cruising, the original V-12 motor was felt not fit for those trips. The 460 motor lasted for another 20K miles until it was lost on a long distance trip and was not rebuildable.

About four years ago, Owner #4 purchased a new Jasper 460 crate motor and had it installed. Mated with |the C-6 automatic transmission and Ford 9" rear, this car can be driven anywhere in comfort and assurance of reliability....
