Lincoln History

1948 Lincoln Mark I Continental

Share on:

Commissioned by Henry Ford II, this unusual Lincoln was modified by Los Angeles-based Coachcraft at a cost of $20,000. Special features included fenders that extended into the doors, a gently rounded rear deck without the customary 'continental kit,' and a small number of parts adapted from other vehicles. Based upon a 1946 Mercury chassis, it was originally equipped with a split windshield and a three-piece top that could be configured to cover the entire passenger compartment, just the rear seat, or removed entirely. The Lincoln was later fitted with a one-piece curved windshield and a more practical folding fabric top. It retains the original 337-cubic inch flathead V8, an experimental version of the engine being developed for the all-new 1949 Lincoln.
