Rolling elegance is a guarantee with this 1948 Lincoln Continental. It has a great vintage style with its intricate chrome, sophisticated color combo, and terrific features for its era. And this V12 cruiser has even been given a few worthwhile updates to remain a distinctive classic that can hit the boulevard.


We call it a Lincoln because that's how we know it today, but classic car fans know the Continental really slots above Lincoln in the hierarchy to be America's Rolls-Royce. And the intricate two-tier chrome grille and wraparound bumper brightly announce that the upper-class has arrived. It has all the right pieces you want on a true classic American machine, including the large fenders, whitewall tires, rear fender skirts, a traditional trunk, and covered spare wheel - a feature so distinctive that it would become the Continental's namesake. Also, speaking of distinction, the burgundy paint is part of a restoration that happened about midway through this car's life thus far. We like the way this presents today. It has the right mix of an elegant hue and a good shine, and there's the right amount of respected use shown so that this doesn't look too "new money" at the better car events. However, anyone looking to make this perfect will likely have an easy decision. After all, this was the first generation's final year, and there were less than 850 Club Coupes reported having been produced. So this is a rare classic that gets more distinct every year, and so a complete example like this will stay in demand.


The beautiful two-tone cloth and leather interior is a bespoke place to enjoy motoring. Luxurious yet sporting, like a high-class hotel in the mountains, it's the epitome of 1940s luxury. It was likely restored at the same time as the bodywork, and so it has a similar kind of earned esteem to the overall appearance. Lovely gauges with ornate faces and metallic finishes highlight the fact that the Continental was all about style. The big steering wheel looks and feels substantial while the center stack holds all the secondary controls, including the AM radio that's there for a display. The back seat has a fold-down rest and so much room that this feels truly like riding in your favorite armchair. And because this was a true luxury machine, there were some features for a pure wow factor, like the push-button door handles (inside and out) and upgraded to power windows from the original hydraulic windows.


The V12 motor was part of this car's luxury calling card, and so you just know you'll love watching people count the spark plugs when you lift the hood at the car shows. Of course, the real reason for this 5.3-liter V12 was to give you a robust and smooth powerhouse that has the torque of a true cruiser. In fact, this has upgraded like an alternator, 8-volt system, and an electric fuel pump to continue the tradition of easy cruising. And the three-speed manual transmission gives you the right vintage control while also offering overdrive for those times you want to hit the highways and byways.


This is a great upper-class classic that makes hitting the road feel like you're turning back the clock. So don't miss out on this rare premium package, call today!

General Terms

Terms & Conditions 

We recognize the need for complete transparency when buying/selling vehicles on eBay. That said, we did not build, modify, or have the luxury of personal ownership that would give us the advantage of knowing all unknown aspects of each vehicle. Transparency is king and we're happy to try and answer ALL questions our customers might have prior to purchasing. Additionally, we welcome and encourage independent inspections (see Inspection statement below).

FEES: A documentation fee of $299 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale. Sale price does not include any Title, License, Registration, State or Local Taxes or Processing Fees. We recommend you familiarize yourself with your individual state's taxes, transfer, or additional fees.

AVAILABILITY: Please inquire prior to purchase to assure any advertised vehicle is not already sold. We advertise across multiple platforms where a vehicle can sell in a moment's notice. Vehicles may be sold prior to eBay listing end, and we reserve the right to end listings early or to cancel bids/offers solely at our discretion and shall not be held liable for any such cancellation.

CONTACT: Note that you may hear from us after to the sale, but if you are a winning bidder, click a Buy-It-Now, or we accept your eBay Offer, it is your responsibility to contact us within 24 hours.

INSPECTION: VERY IMPORTANT. If a buyer chooses to buy sight unseen (many of our buyers choose this option) the buyer accepts the vehicle AS-IS and understands we cannot address concerns post sale. For this reason, it's important all concerns are addressed prior to purchase. We make every effort to present accurate and reliable information, but use of this information is voluntary, and should only be deemed reliable after an independent review of its accuracy, completeness, and timeliness. It is the sole responsibility of the customer/buyer to verify the existence of options, accessories and the vehicle condition before time of sale.

 

PAYMENT: We require a non-refundable $500 deposit within 48 hours of winning or commitment to purchase. Full payment is required within 7 days of offer acceptance unless other arrangements are agreed to in writing. If deposit and/or full payment are not provided within said timeframe, all vehicles will be relisted and transaction will be considered void. For balance of payment we will accept bank wire transfer (preferred), cashier's check, or personal check (vehicle shipment will be delayed until check clears).We also offer vehicle financing, please inquire for details prior to making bids/offers.

SHIPPING: We have access to a network of private and commercial carriers. Most of them can deliver the vehicle to your driveway and upon your schedule. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody. Buyers are welcomed to trailer vehicles home and we are happy to have everything ready to see you off with your new vehicle.

DRIVE IT HOME: If you plan to buy and drive home, please keep some things in mind. Anything is possible when it comes to a vehicle, especially a classic or antique one. We recommend transporting all vehicles to your home first, then driving it locally. Get to know the vehicle and its tendencies before embarking on a long-distance trip. If you choose to drive your new vehicle home, buyer accepts all responsibility as we are unable to control what may take place once it leaves our facility.

DOCUMENTS & VEHICLE TITLE: All purchase documents are sent immediately upon purchase. To avoid delays, we recommend returning any required documents within 24 hours of receipt. Please allow up to 30 days for vehicle titles. Usually titles are available sooner, we ask for the extra time in the event there are unforeseen circumstances.

VIN VERIFICATION: We photograph the primary VIN location of every vehicle and make sure that VIN exactly matches the vehicle's current title. Buyer agrees to hold seller harmless from any disputes arising from other hidden or secondary VINs present on the vehicle as seller only verifies the primary VIN location. If needed, it is the buyer's sole responsibility to verify secondary VIN locations their specific state may inspect, prior to purchase.

MILEAGES: Occasionally our vehicles may be driven or simply moved around our facilities. Slight differences may occur so we recommend you confirm actual and current miles prior to purchase.

CONDITION: We cover the obvious and do our best to describe our vehicles in detail. Even so, please have a transparent conversation with us before purchasing. Do be aware that all pre-owned vehicles, regardless of age, mileage, or manufacturer are subject to cosmetic wear and mechanical failure. Finally, be advised that although our sales associates are here to assist you with your purchase, they are not trained or certified vehicle inspectors.

AS-IS: All vehicles are sold AS IS and with no warranties expressed or implied. If you choose to waive inspection, do plan to have a detailed and transparent conversation with us regarding the vehicle's condition. Ask the hard questions up front. Please just call us, we are here to help and welcome all your questions!

DISCLAIMER: This site and all advertising information may be updated without notice whenever new information is obtained and may contain mistakes and inaccuracies. Information is provided to the best of our knowledge and we make no warranty or representation regarding the accuracy, truth, or reliability of such information. We cannot be responsible for any errors, omissions, or inaccuracies contained in information provided by the consignor/seller of the vehicle. We strive to perform extensive visual inspections on all vehicles we represent but we do not disassemble vehicles or components for inspection purposes and therefore it is always possible that there is hidden damage that is not readily apparent. All vehicles are sold AS-IS with no warranties expressed or implied.

Sales tax, title, license fee, registration fee, dealer documentary fee, finance charges, emission testing fees, and compliance fees are additional to the advertised price. Vehicle is listed locally, we reserve the right to end the auction at any time.
