1949 Lincoln Cosmopolitan
Sedan Car for sale in Woodstock, Georgia 30189
Woodstock, GA 30189
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
This is a Project Car. The 1949 Cosmopolitan Town Sedan is the "fastback" 4-door sedan that was made for only ONE year. It has suicide rear doors, a 377 ci flathead V8 engine, with a 3 speed transmission and factory overdrive. I purchased this almost three years ago when it was running, but I wanted to restore it to its original condition and color. The interior was complete, but the fabric on the seats was old and faded, with some deterioration, as would be expected. The dash is very nice and complete. The headliner looks great for its age. The chrome bumpers are in good condition, as is most of the potmetal pieces. I was going to re-chrome everything. The engine has been totally rebuilt, including new bearings, new pistons/rings, new intake valves/springs/keepers. The crankshaft was balanced, as were the connecting rods.
I am selling this only because I had back surgery in January and will be unable to finish the work. Please contact me if you want to know more of what I have done to the car since I purchased it, and what my future work would have entailed. The pictures don't do justice to the car.
