Classic Car Overview

THIS 1948 LINCOLN CONTINENTAL IS LOCATED IN: GAINESVILLE, GA 30507 The Lincoln Continental is a series of mid-sized and full-sized luxury cars produced by Lincoln, a division of the American automaker Ford Motor Company. The model line was introduced following the construction of a personal vehicle for Edsel Ford, who commissioned a coachbuilt 1939 Lincoln-Zephyr convertible, developed as a vacation vehicle to attract potential Lincoln buyers. In what would give the model line its name, the exterior was given European continental styling elements, including a rear-mounted spare tire. First generation (1940 1948) Lincoln Continentals from 1939 to 1941 shared largely the same body design with each other; based on the Lincoln-Zephyr, the Continental received few updates from year to year. For the 1942 model year, all Lincoln models were given squared-up fenders, and a revised grille. The result was a boxier, somewhat heavier look in keeping with then-current design trends, but perhaps less graceful in retrospect. 1942 production was shortened, following the entry of the United States into World War II; the attack on Pearl Harbor led to the suspension of production of automobiles for civilian use. After World War II, the Lincoln division of Ford returned the Continental to production as a 1946 model; Lincoln dropped the Zephyr nomenclature following the war, so the postwar Continental was derived from the standard Lincoln (internally H-Series). To attract buyers, the design was refreshed with updated trim, distinguished by a new grille. For 1947, walnut wood trim was added to the interior. Following the death of Edsel Ford in 1943, Ford Motor Company re-organized its corporate management structure, which led to the 1946 departure of the Continentals designer Bob Gregorie. That years Continental, the first postwar model, was designed by famed industrial stylist Raymond Loewy. 1948 would become the last year for the Continental, as the division sought to redevelop its new 1949 model line as an upgraded version of the Mercury; the expensive personal-luxury car no longer had a role at Lincoln. The 1939 1948 Continental is recognized as a Full Classic by the Classic Car Club of America, one of the last-built cars to be so recognized. As of 2015, the 1948 Lincoln Continental and 1948 Lincoln were the last cars produced and sold by a major U.S. automaker with a V12 engine. 1948 LINCOLN CONTINENTAL COUPE CLEAN TITLE IN HAND BLUE EXTERIOR WITH BLUE INTERIOR THIS LINCOLN CONTINENTAL HAS ACTUAL 9,945 MILES, TITLE ALSO SHOWS ACTUAL MILEAGE 2 OWNER VEHICLE ORIGINAL V12 ENGINE AND MANUAL TRANSMISSION WHITE WALL TIRES VERY SOLID AND ORIGINAL CONDITION WELL MAINTAINED, GARAGE KEPT RUNS AND DRIVES HERE IS YOUR CHANCE TO OWN THIS GREAT CLASSIC!
