Condition & Features

Luxury at its finest. Only some 1,393 of these cars were made with the rag top and are extremely rare. This was probably the sweetest ride you could by in 1949. Imagine the looks back in the day, to drive such a sporty and luxurious convertible and these prestigious Lincoln\’s were all of that and more. The convertible was the heaviest car Lincoln built, at over some 4400 lbs. The convertible was also the most expensive of the Ford family in 1949 at an astronomical cost of $3,948.00. She has all the goodies of her day too, a powerful flathead V8 that was pumping 152 bhp from 336 cid. She has a rare automatic transmission, power windows, power soft top and the latest in sound equipment for her day, a push button AM radio! Notice the full windshield, instead of two halves, this was a first for the car industry. This rare Lincoln will still run down the road at freeway speeds with no hesitation, she has no wobbles or creaks. This car is an all steel California car. She has been in a private collection in a controlled environment for many years. Please keep in mind they only some 1,393 of these rare convertible beauties were built in the production years of 1949-51. Also the original, not a reproduced or replica, but the original 1949 Lincoln owners manual to the car will be included in the sale. Although the 152 horsepower V-8 engine delivered only 8 miles per gallon, at the time, gasoline was selling for only 28 cents a gallon. With a dollar\’s worth of gas one could pick up their girl and take her to the movies! The Lincoln Cosmopolitan convertibles were manufactured in 1949-51 and very few survive. When new the 4,419-pound car had a base price of $3,948. As stated it was the epitome of luxury and was by far the most expensive Ford /Lincoln on the market, almost 20% more than the rival Cadillac and one of the most expensive cars on the road. This particular example is painted \’Chantilly Green\’ and has a power tan top and tan interior. The he
