C4 In Drag: 1947 Lincoln Continental Restomod – $15,000
While the 1957 Pontiac Star Chief we’re also featuring today could be a relatively straightforward restoration as it shares many of the underbody components with Chevy Bel Air, the 1947 Lincoln Continental is a completely different beast. With only an estimated few hundred produced, restoring an example to like-new condition could be a very expensive proposition. That’s why the builder of this example listed yesterday here on Craigslist in Coopersburg, Pennsylvania (Allentown)likely went the restomod route by replacing the original V12 with a C4 350 Corvette TPI mill. There is a lot of upgrades here and a lot offered for a you-can’t-replicate-it-for-this price of $15,000. We like the badass vibe this Lincoln gives off, so if you agree and are serious about buying it, you can start the conversation by calling the current caretaker at (610) 730-0488 and when you do please remember to mention you saw their unique creation featured here on GuysWithRides.com. Good luck with the purchase!
