D3-07 1942 Lincoln Continental Cabriolet

The 1942 Lincoln Continentals are the rarest of all of the 1940s-era Lincolns because production was limited by the onset of World War II; the cars arrived in Lincoln showrooms on the last day of September 1941 and production extended only to February 1942. Of the 137 cabriolets built only 11 survive today. A notable feature of these Lincolns is the massive new Art Deco-influenced two-tiered horizontal front grille. Just above the grille, for the first time ever, Lincoln placed its now famous coat of arms emblem. Found in complete and original condition in 2006, this car was restored in 2008 by Lincoln aficionado Marsh Belden. Owned in 2013 by David W. Johnson, Salem, Ohio
