1951 Lincoln Cosmopolitan:

  • 99% original.
  • 337 cubic inch flat head v-8, hydromatic transmission, new hankook tires with less than 50 miles on them.

This Lincoln was owned by the owner of a Ford dealership.
It is all original except for the hub caps and a fuel pressure regulator. The car was in storage for over 35 years. It was repainted the original color prior to storage. The body is straight and solid, minimal surface rust in a couple of places. No rust thru.
The fuel tank, fuel lines, carburetor and fuel pump have been cleaned, new fuel filter installed, new coil, points, plugs and plug wires installed. Oil and filter changed, rear end gear oil changed.
Car is being sold as a project car,
The car runs, but I would recommend that a through go thru first. Brakes were inspected and appear to be fine. Transmission is smooth.
To bring back to 100%, interior will need ulpolstering, dash could be refinished, and rewire the car, as the original 70 year old cloth covered wiring is showing it's age. Install a factory radio.

  • Car is 6 volt, positive ground.
  • This car is huge. Weight is 4800 pounds.

These Lincoln's restored are averaging $55,000 sale price.

These cars don't get any love, but we had one and I loved driving it. It was everything a top-of-the-line luxury car should be. I think it's a lot of car for the money and it stands out among all the more commonly-seen stuff at shows. No, it's not exactly "pretty" but it is imposing in person and they have great road manners.

They are cool...I rode in one as a kid.  My best friends uncle had one and took us places in his.  I thought I was a big deal riding around in a Lincoln.  I could never figure out why they are so overlooked in the marketplace.

I like these big, distinctive looking Lincolns. My only thought regarding this particular one is that I'm not crazy about the color. Perhaps this large body would look better if it were gray, black or some other dark color. I find this green a little too casual for this formal looking car.
