1948 Lincoln Continental Convertible

The owner states:

"I have been a car collector my whole life.  I drive a different car most every day.  A few years ago I was driving my 54 Corvette to the barbershop.  I parked right in front of the plate glass window of the barbershop and went in.  The man in the barber chair saw me pull up and said, “I have an old car and I haven’t driven it for over 30 years.  I think it’s a Cadillac.”  He asked if I wanted to see it.  We went down to his house in the old part of town.  He had lost the key to the garage years ago and I have to cut the lock off with a pair of bolt cutters.  The car was covered with an old, dusty car cover.  I pulled the cover off and saw that it was a stock V-12 Lincoln Continental Convertible.  Other than being a little dusty, it looked great.  I towed it back to my shop and did all the prep needed to start it safely.  It hadn’t ran for about 30 years.  I put a new battery in it, cleaned out the fuel system (he had put Stable in it when he parked it), turned the key, pushed the start button and it started right up.  It has a 3 speed on the column with an overdrive, hydraulic top and windows.  My wife loves this car and calls it The Hollywood Car.  It drives like you are sitting on a big, old cloud.  You look over the hood and it seems like it goes on forever.  Everywhere we drive it, people go nuts. It’s time for me pass on the stewardship to this beautiful car."

This car shows, runs and drives very well.
