'48 Lincoln Continental technical data

Recommended Posts

Hi all,my name is Bernard,I'm 54 and I live in north of France.

I'm not in 1:1 car sorry,I'm just here to find some technical data and pics to improve my classic model kits:1/24 and 1/25 scale only.

My first research is on the '48 Lincoln Continental,I would like to find diagram with dimensions,wheelbase etc..the 1/25 plastic kit I just begun;Lindberg,is not accurate.I also work on a 1/24 french classic bus,a complete scratch work:autocar Chausson AP52 of 1952.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,Bernard

I will be sending you links today as well as the frame chart. The links have photos of the entire 1:1 car including engine so just hold on :-)

I got an email from you saying you want to convert the convertible model to a coupe so will also send that frame because it does not have an X brace.

This is from an old book which is a bit warped so the pages were a bit wavy so the scan came out that way too... but the measurements are there.

Also:

Here is the link to the car that was photographed extensively and shows every angle of it inside and out including under the hood and under the car (frame).

Also a person on this forum had restored an earlier model but the floor deaign is the same so gives you an idea of what the entire car looks like and here is that link:

Yes, unfortunately the older the car and the lower the production numbers, the harder it is to find any in restoration process since they were mostly done years ago. And information is also hard to track down.

Would you have a color chart for the interior/exterior for that car and also for the '41 I have to build?

A pic with the non x brace chassis for the coupé?

Many thanks,Bernard.

Original wheels and tires Lindberg kit are very bad.I found the wheels from a '49 Ford and tires in spare parts.
