1939 Lincoln Continental
We have already discussed the influence of the 1961 Lincoln Continental, but decades before that one hit the production line the 1939 Continental shook the automotive world. The vehicle was a personal convertible style coupe that was spectacularly stylish and surprisingly powerful for its time.
Each car was extensively hand-built and the two dozen 1939 models that were produced are considered true automotive gems. Automotive enthusiasts dream of owning and collecting the rare and stunning 1939 Lincoln Continental.
The 1939–1948 Continental is recognized as a “Full Classic” by the Classic Car Club of America and are considered to be one of the last cars produced and sold by a major US automaker with a V12 engine.
Everything about this car makes it classic and unique. There were only a handful of these continentals made. However, they seemed to help pave the way for personal cars and stylish daily drivers for decades to come. The ’39 Lincoln Continental was the first generation of the Continental’s and to this day it remains the ultimate Lincoln.
