1941 LINCOLN CONTINENTAL COUPE
It is our honor to today present this beautiful, significant and professionally restored 1941 Lincoln Continental Coupe for sale.
Classic car value and antique car values are determined by a multitude of factors both in and out of the owner’s control. A collector car’s value is appraised according to its rarity, condition, restoration quality, and market demand. Another significant value influence is provenance, or history of the vehicle, especially if previously owned by a celebrity or public personality. If you bought it and someone asked you “where did that car come from? ”and you can answer “ the stunning Hollywood star Rita Hayworth” that imbues it with a certain je nais se quoi. As the French would say. A certain singular glory as it were.
Offered for sale here is the 1941 Lincoln Continental Coupe believed to be owned for about 30 years by one of Hollywood's Golden Era stunning beauties, Rita Hayworth. It is believed to have been gifted to Mrs. Hayworth by her future husband, Orson Welles. After owning the Lincoln for about 30 years, Mrs. Hayworth gifted the car to her personal secretary Frita Wolfe. In 1972 Wolfe sold the car to Aspen Pittman. At that time, it was powered by a 1955 Cadillac engine. Pittman sold the car in order to finance his business venture Groove Tubes. At some point, it became part of the Art Astor Automobile Collection, which auctioned the car in 2008 for $209,000.
