1948 Lincoln Continental


"After the attack on Pearl Harbor, Continental production was suspended, to be re-started in 1946–1948. Like the other post-war Lincolns, however, the Continental had similar bits of trim added to make it look improved. Walnut trim was added in 1947.

The 1939–1948 Continental is recognized as a "Full Classic" by the Classic Car Club of America, one of the last-built cars to be so recognized. The 1948 Continental had the last V12 engine put in an American car."

There are over 120 pictures of this car in the ad below, including detailed exterior, interior, engine, trunk and undercarriage.  Please let them load on your computer, it will take some time because of the size.

WE WILL NOT RESPOND to emails, or texts asking for the reserve, or selling price.  If you would like to discuss a purchase,



  There really is not a lot to say about this one, the pictures tell it all!  This is one of the few cars that actually look as good in person as in the pictures, maybe better.  Please let all the pictures load (there are over 130) to see the fine condition of this very rare Lincoln.  Found in the mid 90's stored in an old garage, resurrected and restored (at a cost of over $45,000.00) to original condition and completed in 2007, this Lincoln is one of only 452 produced for 1948. The body was redone in the original Pace Car Yellow and all exterior chrome and trim was either replaced or redone. The interior was redone with a Lebaron Bonny upholstery kit and the engine was completely rebuilt with some new maintenance items over the last few years.
