The exterior paint and body are in very good condition. The doors, trunk and hood align correctly. There are some minor paint flaws, nothing serious (see photos) altogether a nice older restoration.


The power-operated convertible top works and is in excellent condition, complimented by a convertible top boot. The power windows are also functional.

THere are some things that still need restoring. The carpet is OK at best, but not a major job.

Open the doors to 1948. The interior is in good condition, needing just a few minor repairs.

Notice the steering wheel made of bakelite which was very popular in the 40s for car accessories as well as jewelry. You will see it as well on the door locks and on some of the dash knobs.

The upholstery is in very good condition front to back. The brightwork is just striking throughout the interior. These cars were absolutely overbuilt. This example is an exceptional one and a joy to cruise in.


Under the hood is the flathead V12 engine. It starts every time on teh first try. THis is a great Lincoln. This engine compartment appears to be correct throughout down to the breather and firewall identification plates.

You will also notice the original wiring which at some point should all be replaced.

The Vin# is stamped into the frame.


The undercarriage also appears to be in very good condition.

Enjoy the remaining photos and again feel free to contact Dave at 214-213-7072 or Maris at 214-616-2317 with any questions.
