This 1951 Lincoln Sedan is a sleek luxury classic with the right well-integrated investments to deliver a distinct classic that's great for all-around enjoyment.
<br><br> 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 wrap around both the front and rear. Plus, they integrated pieces above them with the grille in front and trim wrapping around the hint of tailfin. You see all this brightwork so well because this is wrapped in a sophisticated black that has a modern clearcoat shine. It's a detail-oriented package with great classic elements, like the gold trim hood ornament and whitewall tires. And they are joined by period-correct upgrades, like the amber auxiliary lights and windshield visor. It all comes together to deliver a car that shows off what 1950s-style premium cruising was all about.
<br><br> Suicide doors are another one of those great classic touches we all look for. So you can draw extra attention just by opening the front and rear sets. You'll also want to show off this interior because it's a well-done package. The brown and tan two-tone is a nicely intertwined package. The carpeting is fresh, the headliner is new, and there are even color-matched seatbelts. The seats are nicely finished with a comfortable cloth for the tan, and the brown tops done in a supple leather. The dash has a stock and vintage look, right down to the dials and artful steering wheel. But we know you've also spotted some handy upgrades. The cup holder center console makes this better for modern driving, and the auxiliary gauge trio keeps you better informed about what's going on under the hood. And while the original AM radio is still on display, your real driving tunes are an upgraded experience thanks to the AM/FM/CD stereo hidden in the glovebox and upgraded speakers with an amp and subwoofer in the trunk.
<br><br> 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 tidy and honest presentation in the engine bay that will draw a crowd of survivor fans. This is even believed to be the original motor for the car! But as you dig deeper, you'll see this has been given some key upgrades to keep this a good driver, like the 12-volt electrical system and a new battery. 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 Hydramatic automatic transmission and a soft ride to deliver a classic Lincoln that continues to have a great cruising attitude.
<br><br> The sale comes complete with maintenance records, owner's manual, and service manuals. This is a sleek classic Lincoln that people rarely see, but seldom forget. So to have one made to be a comfortable driver makes for a distinct classic you'll enjoy showing off. Call today!!!
