1948 Lincoln Continental ConvertibleOlder Restoration, CCCA Full Classic, Tours or Show
This is a wonderful 1948 Lincoln Continental Convertible that has an older restoration that is perfect for touring and exhibiting at regional concours events. This Lincoln is well equipped and runs and drives well. We love the Sea Gull Gray livery as it is an ideal color for touring. This is a terrific opportunity to acquire a rare CCCA Full Classic convertible that can be enjoyed and driven.
This is one of just 452 Lincoln Continental Convertibles build in 1948. This Lincoln was completed on February 20th, 1948 at the Lincoln Motor Company plant in Detroit, Michigan. It was then shipped on February 23 to the selling dealer. From this Lincolns overall condition, it was likely thoroughly restored about 20 years ago. Overall, this is a wonderful mid-range quality restoration that now shows some age. This really makes it ideal for weekend use, touring and regional concours events.
The livery looks terrific in Sea Gull Gray that has very nice shine and luster. There are small imperfections such as touched up chips, etc, but only visible upon close inspection. The chrome and stainless steel are in overall very good condition, with only a couple of small imperfections on the front bumper which are visible upon close inspection. The black canvas power convertible top has red piping which contrasts beautifully with the Sea Gull Gray paint. The top has no rips or tears but shows some minimal wear and is in overall nice condition. We love the fender skirts, spotlight, integrated fog lights, push button door openers and the hood ornament with the gold-plated base.
The Burgundy leather interior is in very good to excellent condition. The leather looks just right and is soft and supple. The seats are very comfortable, and the burgundy carpeting is in very nice condition. The power windows and power convertible top work well. The interior chrome and instruments all look nice and work well. The AM radio has been upgraded to also allow for FM. The clock is not working.
The venerable 292 CID V12 is mated to its three-speed with overdrive transmission. The performance is very nice with smooth power and acceleration. The ride is very smooth and comfortable. The engine compartment is well detailed and appropriate for most regional shows.
