Classic Car Overview

For Sale at the St. Louis Car Museum is a 1948 Lincoln Continental Coupe that was purchased from the former owners of 31 years and an example that was the recent recipient of comprehensive servicing for confident road worthiness! This is a beautiful Lincoln Continental in an excellent color combination, factory overdrive, fog lamps, AM radio, power windows, and more. A wonderfully solid example with all original components and a Classic Car Club of America (CCCA) Full Classic! History Of The 1948 Lincoln Continental: Developed from 1939 through 1948, the first generation Lincoln Continental was interrupted in production by World War II. As a result, automobiles would not be produced by American auto makers between the years of 1942-1945.

They are considered the most collectible of the 1st generation for this reason. The entire selection of Lincoln-Zephyr V12 powered Continentals are recognized by the Classic Car Club of America (CCCA) as Full Classics, making them one the last, and youngest vehicles to ever be considered by the club.

The former owners, Mary & Eugene Morris, purchased this beautifully survived Continental in May 1989 and brought the Lincoln home to Glasgow, WV. Soon afterward, they commissioned a complete cosmetic and mechanical restoration by Drennon Restoration based in Hines, WV. This included a full engine and transmission overhaul, all new cloth-covered wiring, beautiful new interior upholstery and carpet, complete exterior repaint in the original color, re-plated chrome, and more!
