The Nation’s Trusted Consignment Dealer, Many Locations Nationwide 1946 Lincoln Continental Stock: 0584-NSH Engine Size: 331 V8 Transmission Type: Automatic (Column) Exterior Color Burgundy Miles: 2,321 (Unknown) Location: Nashville, TN Vehicle Options AM/FM Radio Cassette Player Defrost Heat Power Windows Vinyl Interior Description There was an absolute top-of-the-line domestic car for the discerning few in 1946, and this Lincoln Continental is it. With this distinction also comes extreme rarity only 201 convertibles were built this year. And thanks to a few very thoughtful upgrades, you can pick up this timeless symbol of class while enjoying a few extra modern conveniences.
Edsel Ford rebelled against his father's mass market sensibilities by building a car for people in his substantial wealth class. He emphasized design, which means these first-generation cars show their boldness with sleek lines rather than adding chrome along the profile. This was the car he could have proudly driven in Europe with its dual grilles, push button door handles, and an exposed rear tire caddy that was so artfully presented that it would become the Continental's namesake on other vehicles. The burgundy paint, tan folding top, and large whitewall tires all add to this package of rolling sophistication. It's truly an enduring legacy that outlived its creator.
Open the door and there's a supple red interior that provides the kind of luxurious room in both the front and the rear that you would expect from such an elite car. When you slip inside, a very original Lincoln wheel with an artful dual spoke design greets you. More thoughtful design elements greet you on the dash with full readout package in a bright and symmetrical layout. And like a true luxury machine, there are plenty of great features like power windows and the upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo that is disguised to look more like a period-correct piece.
Pay close attention when you open the hood. The Continentals had a 292 cubic-inch V12 motor when new. But if you read the valve covers, you'll realize this is running with a more powerful and easier to service Cadillac 331 V8. This powerplant might have a tall four-barrel carburetor and dual exhaust 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 automatic. There are more great updates, like the electric fan and newer components such as the ignition coil, belts, hoses, and alternator. It's an overall package that makes going down the road in style exceptionally effortless.
With so few convertibles built in 1946, it will be hard to find one of the few remaining that will be so easy to drive and live with every day. Don't miss this opportunity, call today!!!
