This 1947 Lincoln Club Coupe is a great place to start when creating a custom street machine. After all, it has a distinctive premium look, and this one adds features like a hot V8 and a cool custom A/C interior.
The immediate post-war Lincolns were some pretty cool cars. After all you got the face of the premium Continental, and in the case of this Club Coupe, a seriously sleek rear end. This one is well-done custom. It takes classic elements like the full-length trim, well-done .....
taillight package, and Continental's big dual grilles. But then there are some terrific custom elements added in. For example, the front bumper is a cleaner design that even has the body gap filled in, so it's a cleaner and sleeker look. It's a similar story in the rear where all the ornamentation was removed from the trunk and the new bumper with filler panel all come together to really give this unique form a long and sleek appearance. Plus, you'll love the detail work, like the upgraded headlights, large dual exhaust tips, the push-button door handles from previous years were even added back in. The hood ornament even gives a hint to the power within. And those double-redline tires look terrific against a full red coupe like this.
Inside is more of the full custom treatment. The front seats are borrowed from a modern BMW for a serious upgrade in comfort and bolstering. There are plenty of nice modern features, like power windows, a cup holder console, and R134a air conditioning. Plus, they really upgraded this one with the driver in mind. You have a flame-kissed wood-rimmed steering wheel on a polished Ididit tilt column. And the cool symmetrical Lincoln dash now has crisp Dolphin gauges to keep you fully informed about what's going on under the hood.
The engine bay has been upgraded to be a true modern street machine. While Lincolns had V12, they were only 305s. So the 350 cubic-inch small block is already a nice increase in displacement. Plus, this has the right performance upgrades, like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Holley intake, and headers. You even have the right supporting components, like an HEI distributor and an aluminum radiator w/electric fan. It's a strong-running motor that makes a sweet sound out of the dual exhaust. And because this is such a unique coupe, you'll be glad they gave you great driving feature to make it easy to show off. It includes a three-speed automatic transmission, upgraded front suspension, power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and sway bars front & rear.
The sale comes complete with build receipts, maintenance records, and title documentation. There are few of these Lincolns left and few look this cool. So don't miss out, call today!
