Description for Lincoln Other 1949

Up for sale without Reserve Lincoln Cosmopolitan 1949!The last Lincoln designed by Eugene T. "Bob" Gregorie, the Cosmopolitan was Lincoln's first truly post-WWII car. Introduced alongside the 1949 Ford and Mercury Eight, both of which became popular with hotrodders, the Cosmopolitan featured rounded, somewhat bulbous, styling that had one foot in the future with the enveloped fenders but the other in the early '40s with the overall conservatism of the design. The aerodynamic hood ornament and recessed 'Frenched' headlights were unique design features that became popular with the aforementioned hotrodders though.
Lincoln had dropped its aging V-12 by '49 but had only gone so far as to replace it with a 337cid flathead V-8 that had its roots in Ford truck motors. The 150hp motor delivered power through an optional Hydra-Matic 4-speed automatic or 3-speed manual. Power windows and seats were standard fare. Suicide doors, a feature Lincoln would feature until 1967, were present here as well, but a center pillar provided some extra rigidity. Offered in sedan, coupe, and convertible form, Cosmopolitans did everything from compete successfully in the Carrera Panamericana in coupe form to chauffer the President of the US and other heads of states in custom limousine form.
This Lincoln appears to be more or less complete. With its original engine and all factory tags and numbers! Found at the barn in East Coast its ready to find new owner who will bring back this American iconic car to its former glory.The car will be sold with clean title!Thank you for your interest!
