Lot #411 - This is one of the sweetest rides you could by in 1949. Imagine the looks even back in the day to drive a sporty luxury convertible, and these prestigious Lincoln's were all of that and more. The convertible was the heaviest car Lincoln built, at some 4400 lbs. The convertible was also the most expensive of the ford family in 1949 at a cost of $3948.00. She has all the goodies of her day, a powerful flathead V8 that was pumping 152 hp. from 336 cid. She has a rare auto transmission, power windows, and the latest in sound equipment for her day, a push button AM radio. Notice the full windshield, instead of two halves, this was a first for the car industry. This little sweetie will run down the road at freeway speeds with no hesitation, she has no wobbles or creaks. This car is an all steel california car. She was bought some 10 years ago where it has been in a private collection in a controlled environment. Please keep in mind they only made 1230 of these rare beauties in 1949. You can enjoy the thrill of driving this baby to and from car shows. Also we will give you the original, not a reproduced or replica, but original 1949 lincoln owners manual to the new owner.
