Gateway Classic Cars of St. Louis is proud to present this 1947 Lincoln Coupe!
This era has some fantastic styling, and this beautiful ride before you is a shining example of the designs from the era. Those giant wheel arch covers smooth this sweet ride out!
The exterior is a wonderful maroon that shines brightly and seems to have no major defects. Open the door and step into the clean gray interior and you are greeted with comfort and style. The dash has a period correct look to it and some neat tricks up its sleeve.
Under the hood is the tried, true, reliable, and easy to maintain 350 V8. Shifting smooth and crisp is a 700R4 making this an ideal vehicle for cruising around town to shows and ice cream shops or hitting the interstate for a road trip.
The gearing out back is a mild 3.55:1 complimenting the rest of the drivetrain nicely. When it comes to creature comforts and drivability there is a lot to love. For those car lovers in warm climates you have AC to keep things cool along with cruise control, power brakes, power steering, power mirrors, and best of all a tilt wheel!
Economy cars today are brittle pieces of cramped electronics. This 1947 Lincoln Coupe is a solid piece of engineering from 1947 met with some nice upgrades from later generations. Driving this sweet ride is a dream and adding to the convenience around town is a back up camera!
