This 1951 Lincoln Sedan is a sleek luxury classic with the right
well-integrated investments to deliver a distinct classic that's
great for all-around enjoyment.
The Lincoln EL-series is quite special. It's closely related to the
Mercury Eight we all love for that slippery shape that's perfect
for the iconic Lead Sled look. You see that here with the sleek
lines that have special features like the full-length trim, fender
skirts, and headlights that look frenched from the factory. The
chrome bumpers are a masterwork that wrap around both the front and
rear. Plus, they integrated pieces above them with the grille in
front and trim wrapping around the hint of tailfin. You see all
this brightwork so well because this is wrapped in a sophisticated
black that has a modern clearcoat shine. It's a detail-oriented
package with great classic elements, like the gold trim hood
ornament and whitewall tires. And they are joined by period-correct
upgrades, like the amber auxiliary lights and windshield visor. It
all comes together to deliver a car that shows off what 1950s-style
premium cruising was all about.
Suicide doors are another one of those great classic touches we all
look for. So you can draw extra attention just by opening the front
and rear sets. You'll also want to show off this interior because
it's a well-done package. The brown and tan two-tone is a nicely
intertwined package. The carpeting is fresh, the headliner is new,
and there are even color-matched seatbelts. The seats are nicely
finished with a comfortable cloth for the tan, and the brown tops
done in a supple leather. The dash has a stock and vintage look,
right down to the dials and artful steering wheel. But we know
you've also spotted some handy upgrades. The cup holder center
console makes this better for modern driving, and the auxiliary
gauge trio keeps you better informed about what's going on under
the hood. And while the original AM radio is still on display, your
real driving tunes are an upgraded experience thanks to the
AM/FM/CD stereo hidden in the glovebox and upgraded speakers with
an amp and subwoofer in the trunk.
Under the hood is a marvel of its time. The only cars that got the
large 337 cubic-inch Flathead V8 were Lincolns because they wanted
the premium division to never go wanting for power. It has a tidy
and honest presentation in the engine bay that will draw a crowd of
survivor fans. This is even believed to be the original motor for
the car! But as you dig deeper, you'll see this has been given some
key upgrades to keep this a good driver, like the 12-volt
electrical system and a new battery. So it has the look of
untouched, but it runs with a confidence that tells you it has been
looked after correctly. This V8 is paired with a Hydramatic
automatic transmission and a soft ride to deliver a classic Lincoln
that continues to have a great cruising attitude.
The sale comes complete with maintenance records, owner's manual,
and service manuals. This is a sleek classic Lincoln that people
rarely see, but seldom forget. So to have one made to be a
comfortable driver makes for a distinct classic you'll enjoy
showing off. Call today!!!
