This is a truly forties icon classic with modern day upgrades, hence the name Restomod. What is the difference between restomod and restoration? Traditionally, automotive restoration essentially refers to taking a collector car and bringing it back to life utilizing as many OEM pieces as possible. The process involves repair of the visible parts (e.g., body trim, interior, etc.), as well as the parts not easily seen (e.g., electrical, suspension, brakes, etc.). All restomods are different and each builder has his/her own objectives, however, the overall the idea is to retain the essential look of the classic while increasing reliability and performance. This Lincoln is a great example of a mild restomod built to look stock but with a more modern interior and drivetrain.</p><p>1946-1948 Lincolns are rare due to the fact that they were one of the more expensive luxury cars of the era. This great looking exampleis now powered by a Ford 351 cid Windsor V-8 with a HDI electronic distributor which is linked to a C4 automatic transmission. Other mechanical upgrades include 12-volt electric system, electric cooling fan, rebuilt transmission, and more. It has been further enhanced with such amenities as power windows, power steering, wide white wall Coker tires on 15 inch steel wheels with period correct chrome wheel coversand beauty rings.Note: windshield wipers currently inoperable.</p><p>Finished in a period rich dark green, theexterior finishshows extremely well with only minor imperfections visible upon close inspection. Both the front and rear bumpers fit nicelyand show extremely well boasting recent re-chroming. Having spent much of its life in dry climate, the body of this iconic luxury car shows extremely well with no visible evidence of repair or damage that we could find. The interior carries the simple yet elegant theme of the rest of the car with recently upholstered light seats and door panels. Both front andrear bench seats and all look great with no visible wear. Upon entering the car, one isgreeted by a gorgeous refinished wood dash with reconditioned instruments that are just as pretty now as they were when the car was new. The elegant craftsmanship of these great American classics is represented beautifully by this tastefully restored and upgraded Continental making it a fantastic addition to any collection!</p><p>These custom Lincolns are becoming increasingly hard to find in such solid well kept condition.
