This 1951 Lincoln Sedan is true classic luxury with just the right upgraded touches to keep this a V8 classic of true distinction.
The Lincoln EL-series is quite special. It's closely related to the Mercury Eight we all love for that slippery shape that's perfect for the iconic Lead Sled look. You see that here with the sleek lines that have special features like the full-length trim, fender skirts, and headlights that look frenched from the factory. The chrome bumpers are a masterwork that wraparound both the front and rear and are accompanied by the grille and trim to be a big and bright symbol of '50s design. You see this brightwork so well because this is wrapped in a modern and sophisticated blue that gets this Lincoln plenty of attention. And this has all the best classic elements – from whitewall tires, to the gold trim hood ornament, to suicide doors.
It looks like there was a nice investment to keep the interior fresh and vintage. That means you have two rows of seating that are as comfortable and expansive as your living room sofa. And it has great details, like the rear fold-down armrest and striped cloth pattern inserts. The seat materials match the door panels, and they coordinate with everything – including the carpeted trunk. The dash continues the color theme, and it has great features like the art deco gauges and a great-looking classic steering wheel. It's a total presentation you'll happily share with family and friends.
Under the hood is a marvel of its time. The only cars that got the large 337 cubic-inch Flathead V8 were Lincolns because they wanted the premium division to never go wanting for power. It has a very honest and original presentation in the engine bay that will draw a crowd of survivor fans. But as you dig deeper, you'll see more recent investment in key places like the water pump and carburetor. So it has the look of untouched, but it runs with a confidence that tells you it has been looked after correctly. This V8 is paired with a four-speed automatic transmission and a soft ride to deliver a classic Lincoln that continues to have a great cruising attitude.
This is the distinct sedan that has a terrific vintage attitude. So at a price like this, you'll want to hurry up and call today!
