Vehicle Description

This 1951 Lincoln Sedan is true classic luxury with an authentic style everywhere from the suicide doors to the flathead V8 under the hood.


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. And this one has all the best classic elements - from whitewall tires, to the gold trim hood ornament, to suicide doors. The chrome bumpers are a masterwork that wraparound the sides. And the front one is accompanied by the grille to be a big and bright symbol of 1950s design. You see this brightwork so well because it tastefully contrasts against the maroon paint. It's a nice application that has a classic aged-in look that still offers a deep shine - so it ideally upholds the established sophistication you want in a classic Lincoln.


The exterior maroon returns inside, and now it's joined by a terrific-looking tan. The seats, door panels, headliner, and carpeting all have the look and feeling of quality. We especially love the supple leather of the stylish two-tone seats, and the door panels were even done to match. These two rows of wide benches are as comfortable as a living room sofa. In fact, the rear has side armrests and a fold-down middle one to make riding in back feel like an armchair experience. The dash continues the color theme, and it has great features like the art deco gauges and a stylish classic steering wheel. It's a total presentation you'll happily share with anyone who appreciates vintage luxury as much as you do.


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 very honest, original, and tidy presentation in the engine bay that will draw a crowd of survivor fans. But as you dig deeper, you'll see the right key upgrades. After all, a 12-volt electrical system and alternator upgrade are always handy in a true cruising classic. 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 four-speed automatic transmission and a soft ride to deliver a classic Lincoln that continues to have a great cruising attitude.


This is the distinct sedan that has a terrific vintage attitude. So at a price like this, you'll want to hurry up and call today!
