1947 Lincoln History The Lincoln Motor Company (also known simply as Lincoln) is a division of the Ford Motor Company that sells luxury vehicles under the Lincoln brand. Henry Leland, a former manager of the Cadillac division of General Motors, and his son, Wilfred Leland, formed The Lincoln Motor Company in August, 1917. Leland named the new company after Abraham Lincoln, his hero and for whom he cast a vote in 1864. The first Lincoln Continental was developed as Edsel Ford''s one-off personal vehicle, though it is believed he planned all along to put the model into production if successful. Ford''s Lincoln division continued to produce the Continental for model years 1946 to 1948. Like all other post-war Lincolns it received updated trim, including a new grill, to refresh the design. Walnut interior trim was added in 1947. VIN 7H166990 This car was built 14 years ago by a retired engineer. The previous owner of this car owned it for 8 months and drove it a lot.

Our shop is open to the public, and when a walk in customer puts a deposit on a car we reserve the right to close the eBay listing before the auction ends.
