 Vehicle Description
The first ever Lincoln Continental was an exercise in making the best for a select few, and 1948 was its final year. So this is truly a rare treat to find an elegantly presented example with some subtle upgrades to make it an even bigger standout and better driver.br / brbr Edsel Ford brought style to his fathers company, and this car was his greatest demonstration in building something for those who could afford elegance. And while Edsel did not survive past WWII, a few of his finest Continentals did. Priced out of reach of the common man a?" the price of this could buy four Fords a?" less than 850 club coupe examples were produced in 1948, the models final year. More than just rarity, this one continues its tradition of rolling opulence with a dignified black lacquer paint that was applied later in life. It has a shine that showcases the large fenders, traditional trunk, and covered spare wheel a?" a feature so distinctive that it would become the Continentals namesake. Plus, theres standout brightwork with nicely finished dual grilles, large bumpers, headlight surrounds, plenty of trim, and updated wire wheels.br / brbr The doors have an elegant push-button for entry, and once inside, it begins to reveal this coupes secret. There was a more modern a thorough restoration done to this Continental, and it updated this car without losing the luxury spirit. You see it in the full burgundy interior with comfortable velour seats, matching door panels, and plush carpeting. These offered spacious for both the front and rear passengers, and so youll be glad this continues to keep them all comfortable with updates like an AM/FM/CD stereo, power windows, and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning front and rear. You have an upgraded steering wheel on a tilt column, and beyond that is a fully upgraded gauge panels set in a dignified woodgrain dash.br / brbr Pay close attention when you open the hood. The Continentals had a 292 cubic-inch V12 motor when new. But if you read shroud, youll realize this is running with a more powerful and easier to service Ford 460ci V8. Youll even spot more nice upgrades like the aluminum radiator. The big block V8 is a very cool addition considering its connection to another Continental icon, the Mark V. The powerplant might have Mickey Thompson valve covers and an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor for a bit of hot rod flair, but this Continental never loses its luxury nature. In fact, the more modern motors power is put down by an easy-going three-speed automatic. Going down the road in style is exceptionally effortless, too, with upgrade like power steering and power brakes w/discs up front.br / brbr This is a great upper-class classic that has been upgraded to make it nicer to show and easier to drive.
