5.3L V12, 3-SPEED, WELL MAINTAINED OLDER RESTO, UPGRADED INTERIOR, DRIVES GREAT!

Rolling elegance is a guarantee with this 1948 Lincoln Continental. It has a great vintage style with its intricate chrome, sophisticated color combo, and terrific features for its era. And this V12 cruiser has even been given a few worthwhile updates to remain a distinctive classic that can hit the boulevard.

We call it a Lincoln because that's how we know it today, but classic car fans know the Continental really slots above Lincoln in the hierarchy to be America's Rolls-Royce. And the intricate two-tier chrome grille and wraparound bumper brightly announce that the upper-class has arrived. It has all the right pieces you want on a true classic American machine, including the large fenders, whitewall tires, rear fender skirts, a traditional trunk, and covered spare wheel - a feature so distinctive that it would become the Continental's namesake. Also, speaking of distinction, the burgundy paint is part of a restoration that happened about midway through this car's life thus far. We like the way this presents today. It has the right mix of an elegant hue and a good shine, and there's the right amount of respected use shown so that this doesn't look too “new money” at the better car ...

5.3L V12, 3-SPEED, WELL MAINTAINED OLDER RESTO, UPGRADED INTERIOR, DRIVES GREAT!

Rolling elegance is a guarantee with this 1948 Lincoln Continental. It has a great vintage style with its intricate chrome, sophisticated color combo, and terrific features for its era. And this V12 cruiser has even been given a few worthwhile updates to remain a distinctive classic that can hit the boulevard.

We call it a Lincoln because that's how we know it today, but classic car fans know the Continental really slots above Lincoln in the hierarchy to be America's Rolls-Royce. And the intricate two-tier chrome grille and wraparound bumper brightly announce that the upper-class has arrived. It has all the right pieces you want on a true classic American machine, including the large fenders, whitewall tires, rear fender skirts, a traditional trunk, and covered spare wheel - a feature so distinctive that it would become the Continental's namesake. Also, speaking of distinction, the burgundy paint is part of a restoration that happened about midway through this car's life thus far. We like the way this presents today. It has the right mix of an elegant hue and a good shine, and there's the right amount of respected use shown so that this doesn't look too "new money" at the better car events. However, anyone looking to make this perfect will likely have an easy decision. After all, this was the first generation's final year, and there were less than 850 Club Coupes reported having been produced. So this is a rare classic that gets more distinct every year, and so a complete example like this will stay in demand.

The beautiful two-tone cloth and leather interior is a bespoke place to enjoy motoring. Luxurious yet sporting, like a high-class hotel in the mountains, it's the epitome of 1940s luxury. It was likely restored at the same time as the bodywork, and so it has a similar kind of earned esteem to the overall appearance. Lovely gauges with ornate faces and metallic finishes highlight the fact that the Continental was all about style. The big steering wheel looks and feels substantial while the center stack holds all the secondary controls, including the AM radio that's there for a display. The back seat has a fold-down rest and so much room that this feels truly like riding in your favorite armchair. And because this was a true luxury machine, there were some features for a pure wow factor, like the push-button door handles (inside and out) and upgraded to power windows from the original hydraulic windows.

The V12 motor was part of this car's luxury calling card, and so you just know you'll love watching people count the spark plugs when you lift the hood at the car shows. Of course, the real reason for this 5.3-liter V12 was to give you a robust and smooth powerhouse that has the torque of a true cruiser. In fact, this has upgraded like an alternator, 8-volt system, and an electric fuel pump to continue the tradition of easy cruising. And the three-speed manual transmission gives you the right vintage control while also offering overdrive for those times you want to hit the highways and byways.

This is a great upper-class classic that makes hitting the road feel like you're turning back the clock. So don't miss out on this rare premium package, call today!
