If you want to ever take a leap back in time, this 1948 Lincoln Continental Coupe would be a very comfortable means of transportation.
1948 was the last year of the first generation Lincoln Continentals, and the last of the Continentals period until 1956.
This car starts, runs, and drives beautifully. It steers easily, and the brakes work perfectly. All of the gauges function properly, and the entire dash panel with it’s decorative ques from empire styling into art deco appointments speak to a time when America was jetting rapidly toward prosperity.
The red leather interior is clean, fresh, and comfortable and looks and feels perfect in this spacious Coupe.
This particular Lincoln is clean everywhere you look, frame-off restored and would be the perfect car for most any event, such as weddings, Anniversary parties, parades, not to mention, car shows, cruise-ins, or most any special occasion you can think of where you might present a little flavor of the past.
Start the V-12 engine up, slip the smooth transmission into gear with the easy push clutch, and you are embarking on a journey not unlike someone would have in 1948 in this very car!
This Continental is the perfect addition to any classic car collection, or a great asset to have for a nice evening out. Comfortable, reliable, classic styling, and last of the first series, post-war Lincoln Continentals. Everyone will know when you arrive when you show up in this spectacular coupe!
