If you've been longing for the early days of American luxury, let this incredible 1948 Lincoln Continental take you back in style. The subject of an extensive frame off restoration, this AACA Senior Award winner is one of the best examples on the market today. With a designed loosely based on the Lincoln Zephyr, the long nose/short trunk convertible features a coat of black paint which remains deep and rich thanks to meticulous care the car has received since restoration. From the commanding front grille to the sculpted taillight bezels, all brightwork is crisp and free of significant flaws. The glass is equally as nice. Between the long fenders, a 292 cubic inch Flathead V12 produces 130hp and 220 lb-ft of torque. The engine has been dressed to factory specifications with Lincoln Green and black enamel sprayed in the appropriate places. Backing that V12 is a three-speed manual transmission with overdrive. The transmission shifts gracefully, sending power through the toque tube and out to the rear differential. The stock suspension remains in place with a transverse leaf spring and radius rods out back while a solid axle handles the front end. Stops comes courtesy of hydraulic drum brakes at all wheels with Lincoln-baged hubcaps wrapped in Firestone whitewalls connecting the car to pavement. Inside, a fully restored interior features a fully operational convertible top that covers two leather-covered bench seats and a gorgeous factory dash with all original gauges. With amenities such as air conditioning, under-seat heaters and power windows, this luxury cruiser was way ahead of its time.
