Convertible
Chassis Num: 8H180929
High bid of $25,000 at 2007 RM Sothebys. (did not sell)
This 1948 Lincoln Continental Coupe was offered for sale at the 2007 RM Auctions held at Meadow Brook where it was estimated to sell between $50,000 - $60,000. The car is powered by a 292 cubic-inch side-valve V12 engine that is capable of producing 130 horsepower. It has a three-speed gearbox and four-wheel hydraulically actuated brakes. The elegant body rests gently on a 125-inch wheelbase. It has been a AACA First Place winner two years in a row. It is a 'Full Classic' as categorized by the Classic Car Club of America.

The exterior is finished in black while the interior features black leather upholstery. This car is reported to be in good condition and has been treated to a restoration since new. It came equipped from the factory with the optional power windows which had been introduced by Lincoln in 1946.

Bidding reached $25,000 but was not nearly enough to satisfy the vehicles reserve, so the car was left unsold.
