This 1951 Lincoln Cosmopolitan Convertible was offered for sale at the 2007 RM Auctions held at Meadow Brook. It is powered by a 337 cubic-inch V8 engine that is capable of producing over 150 horsepower. It has a Hydra-Matic gearbox and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. It is one of only 857 examples of the Cosmopolitan Convertible Coupe produced in 1951 and one of 19 known to have survived in modern times. When it left the dealership, it carried a sticker price of $4,234. When it was brought to the auction, it was estimated to sell between $70,000 - $90,000.
It has been treated to a comprehensive restoration that was done to the highest of standards. It is finished in light green paint, called Chantilly Green, and was exclusive to the convertibles that year. The interior is in brown leather. It has power windows, power top, spotlight, whitewall tires, and fender skirts.
At auction the car was sold, though its selling price was less than the estimated value. It was sold for $60,500.
