Description
Lot #808 - This 1948 Continental is a stunning vehicle that has been part of the collection of a CCCA Regional Board of Managers member since 2000, and it has had just two owners since 1989. It has been expertly cared for and carefully used, making only rare appearances at selected Pacific Northwest Region CCCA events. The car is finished in Grotto Blue with red leather trimmed interior and tan softtop, and it is equipped with the optional heater/defroster, fog lamps, and white sidewall tires. Under the hood the 305cid V12 is rated by the factory at 130hp and delivers near silent, turbine-smooth performance. Notably, 1948 Lincolns represent the final year any V12 was offered by an American car company, and 1948 is the latest year any Continental is accepted as a CCCA Approved 'Full Classic.' Just 452 Continental cabriolets were built in total for 1948.
