The lincoln continental made its debut in 1940 and stemmed from edsel ford’s desire to build a high class, stylish luxury model to compete with the finest marques of europe. Designed by bob gregorie, the continental shared many characteristics of the lincoln-zephyr including the legendary flathead v12 engine. Production temporarily halted in 1942 when the u.S. Entered world war ii. Continental production would resume in 1946 with some styling updates. The death of edsel ford in 1943 resulted in a restructuring of ford’s corporate management who deemed the design as too pre-war which caused production to complete cease by 1948. The continental name would not reappear until 1955 with the continental mark ii, although the first generation continentals remain highly prized among collector car circles. The first generation cars are one of the few post-war models to be recognized by the classic car club of america as a “full classic” and, to date, remains the last american v12-powered production automobile. Only 452 continental convertibles were assembled during the final production year of 1948, making complete, running examples highly sought-after by collectors today.
