Blue 1948 Lincoln Continental 292 CID V12 3 Speed Automatic
Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is excited to present this gorgeous blue 1948 Lincoln Continental Series 876H Convertible for sale.
This beautiful vintage Series 876H convertible came pretty loaded from the factory and has aged extremely well for a car that’s over 70 years old and is still ready to drive!
Powered by what is believed to be its original 292 CID V12 and 3-speed manual transmission, it still floats down the road like the executive’s car that it was designed to be – powerful, smooth, and stately.
This car was lovingly restored by World Wide Classics, who did all of the paint, chrome and the interior. Speaking of chrome, it’s adorned with plenty of the gleaming stuff…it’s sure to bring back fond memories for anyone who was around when this car was still fairly new. The blue metallic paint is in very good condition, and glistens in the sun. The dog dish hubcaps gleam, and the side skirts and Continental Kit add extra panache to this glorious ride.
Inside, some of the best smelling red leather upholstery you’ll find is abundant, and the red carpet looks great. This big Lincoln also sports some very cool door releases: both the exterior and interior units are push-button operated. The power windows are operated by a couple similarly styled toggle-action buttons on the driver’s and passenger’s doors. The big clock in the dash looks awesome, and it can certainly be refurbished to operate like it did when it was new.
You’ll be sure to appreciate the nostalgic feeling that sitting in the pilot’s seat will provide. So, what are you waiting for – get in, start it up, drop the automatic convertible top, and slip it into gear. You’ll relish the commanding view down the long hood, with the wide, graceful front fenders low in the sight lines.
You’ll also appreciate the smooth ride that the Coker wide whitewall radial tires provide.
