1979 Clenet Series I Roadster For Sale

1427 original miles. This car is part of a private collection that is being sold, and has very little miles. Though it was styled in the image of the 1930 luxury cars such as the Mercedes and Jaguar the “Neoclassic” Clenet was not a true replica. Built on a Continental Mark V chassis with 120 inch wheel base, it carried a stock Continental drive train: 351 cu. in. V-8 engine, three speed automatic transmission, and front disc brakes. Because stock parts were used, the cars could be serviced at Lincoln dealerships.

Not an original ground up design as the Excalibur, Clenet’s steel body was modified from a production car (surprisingly, the MG Midget, which prompted some scoffing from the critics.) Only the cockpit (doors and windshield) and the trunk came from the MG, but the choice kept Clenet’s interior space closer to MG-size than luxury dimensions. Construction of each car required about 1600 man-hours. Long sweeping front fenders flowed smoothly into short boards, which met wide rear fenders. The extremely long, side opening hood had a large number of short vertical louvers. Old-style round separately mounted headlamps were used. The grill was “Classic” upright style. Large driving lights sat close together, just above the split front bumper. Long air horns actually worked, but the four exhaust pipes coming out of the hood side did not. An outside spare tire at the rear was flanked by a split rear bumper. Wire wheels came from the Mark V. Running boards and deck lid held wooden rub strips. Each car’s production number was displayed on a silver door plaque. Interior touches included a hand rubbed black walnut dashboard (said to come from ancient trees). Connolly leather upholstery and leather padded steering wheel. Carpeting was Wilton lamb’s wool from Britain. Standard equipment included adjustable reclining seatbacks, tinted glass, cruise control, adjustable steering column, tonneau cover and air conditioning. The roadster carried two people. Call for further details and price.
