The Lincoln Continental was a series of automobiles produced by the Lincoln division of the Ford Motor Company from 1939-1948, 1956-1980 and again from 1981-2002. Throughout its entire production the Lincoln Continental was distinctively classified as a luxury vehicle. The first generation of the model was produced from 1939 to 1948. The original design of the model was an elegant convertible supposedly modeled after the Lincoln-Zephyr. Long, low and sleek, the first generation of Lincoln Continentals is often stated to be one of the most beautiful designs from the Pre World-War II era.

Due to the attack on Pearl Harbor, production of the Continental ceased until 1945-1946. The sleek motor vehicle received a face lift with an updated trim, new front grill and walnut interior trim (added in 1947). The 1939-1948 models are recognized as one of the last-built “Full Classics” by the Classic Car Club of America.
