The story of the original Lincoln Continental has become a legend of the Classic Era. Edsel Ford had his favored stylist. Bob Gregorie. design a customized Lincoln-Zephyr Convertible Coupe for him to drive during a winter vacation in Florida. Ford's society friends were so impressed by the design. with its low. sleek lines devoid of chrome and a rear-mounted spare. that it was soon put into production. The result. dubbed the Continental as a reflection of its styling influences.

Arguably. the Continental was the first true “personal luxury” car. as it was a large two-door. five-passenger automobile that was sporty enough for the polo player. but also elegant enough to park at the country club. It was that dual-personality appeal and outright beautiful design that have made it a lasting legend and among the most popular of CCCA Classics. The Lincoln Continental featured advanced European styling that left a powerful impression on the American public. Its design was so greatly appreciated that in 1951 the Museum of Modern Art selected the Continental as one of eight automotive works of art. Eight years later Time magazine ranked it in its top ten of choices of the 100 best designed commercial products.

Finished in a shade reminisce of Lincoln Maroon. the Continental has a tan leather interior and tan canvas power-operated top that contributes to the richness of presentation. The 1948 Lincoln Continental was powered by a 305-cid. 130-hp flathead V-12 engine that is connected to a three-speed column-shift manual transmission. which was standard for this model. It is reported this is the original powerplant. This Lincoln is a former Classic Car Club of America National Senior First Prize winner that still has a strong presence. Among the desirable features are fender skirts. power windows. Firestone whitewall tires. front and rear bumper guards. clock. radio. heater. factory wheel covers and the ubiquitous Continental kit.

With only 847 Lincoln Continental cabriolets built in 1948. it is suitable for any collection. as well as for enjoyment in tours and CCCA activities. and it reflects the dashing nature of both its designer and its creator. For more information call 561-313-8094
