In 1948 Lincoln built only 7,769 cars in a shortened production year while it prepared for the introduction of a completely redesigned Lincoln and Cosmopolitan in 1949. 1,299 of Lincoln's production was the Continental, meaning only 6,640 (some sources say 6,470) were the standard Lincoln sedan, club coupe and convertible. Power came from the 305 cubic inch 130hp V-12 shared with the Continental. Many styling features were shared with the Continental as well including headlights, egg crate grille, bumpers, squared off teardrop fenders and rear wheel skirts. This 1948 Lincoln Convertible Coupe is an excellent example of its model and has been fully and accurately restored in refined black livery with red leather upholstery, red carpets and a black cloth top. It is fully equipped with power top, power windows, heater, clock, radio, wide whitewall tires, hubcaps and trim rings on red steel wheels. The paint, chrome and interior are all very nice, showing a little age and use but holding up extremely well. The engine compartment is clean, orderly and thoroughly detailed. It comes with a good packet of documents including the engine repair manual, car manual and service manual. It combines style, luxury and rarity in an attractive and well maintained package that is highly unusual today, as it was in 1948.
