844-658-3426 1948 Lincoln Continental 89175 Miles Black Convertible 460 V8
Stock #: 0311-PHX Exterior Color: Black Interior Color: Burgundy Body Type: Convertible Drivetrain: RWD Engine: 460 V8 Title Condition: Clear 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 to find a fantastically presented version with some subtle upgrades to make it an even bigger standout and better driver makes this one truly a rare treat. Edsel Ford brought style to his father's 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 – one convertible could buy four Fords – only 452 droptop examples were produced in 1948, the model's final year. More than just rarity, this one continues its tradition of rolling opulence with a coat of slick black that was professional applied later in its life. This draws plenty of attention as shine evenly rolls off the large fenders, traditional trunk, and covered spare wheel – a feature so distinctive that it would become the Continental's namesake. Plus, there's even more shine with nicely finished brightwork on the dual grilles, large bumpers, headlight surrounds, factory wheel covers, and all the trim. And the addition of wire wheels brings even more distinction to this stunning classic. The final piece to this upper-class image is the way the newer white top coordinates with the whitewall tires to give this one an almost two-tone appearance. While this one looks great with the top up, it's also equally terrific with the roof down. The red interior looks quite sophisticated against the black, and it has been restored to make sure it looks fresh and quite correct. So you'll proudly show off this full droptop package. As a true luxury Lincoln, there's plenty of room for family and friends across two rows of cushy bench seats. And the way this was designed to be comfortable for everyone means it's effortless to even hop in the rear. As a true luxury machine, you got rare features for the time like power windows and a power convertible top. And as you slip behind the stylized dual spoke steering wheel, it gives you a commanding view of the dash. This Lincoln was truly a style master with a symmetrical design where there's the essential gauges in front of you, a mirrored artful display in front of the passengers, and the classic art deco-style AM radio still on display in the middle. The first glance in the engine bay might not draw attention by too many people. The tidy black setup looks a bit like the subtle presentation of the original motor, but those who look closer will recognize a major upgrade. This is Ford's huge 460 cubic-inch big block V8, which is a very cool addition considering it's what powered another Continental icon – the suicide door fourth generation. This powerplant might have an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor for a bit of hot rod flair, but this Continental convertible never loses its luxury nature. In fact, the more modern motor has allowed the manual transmission to be replaced by an easy-going three-speed automatic. Going down the road in style is exceptionally effortless, too, with the upgrade to power brakes. This is a great upper-class classic that has been upgraded to make it nicer to show and easier to drive. So don't miss out on this rare premium package, call today!
