Known internally as the H-series, Lincoln did not christen its full-size cars with model names immediately after World War II.  They were simply referred to as Club Coupe, Convertible Coupe and Sedan based on body styles.  The Lincoln Continental retained its moniker – distinct being that it was considered in the personal luxury car class – and the three full-size offerings bore a strong resemblance.

 

This maroon example is claimed by seller to be an original, Western car – definitely appealing to the collector.  Plenty of chrome is in place on the exterior, as accents as well as gleaming finish on the bumpers.  The brightwork reflects the period and looks to be in presentable condition with no evidence of pitting.

A standard feature of the H-series, not as common as on today’s cars, was an electric clock figuring prominently on the passenger side of the dashboard.  This is included in the photos.  Front seats also appear clean, free of tears or other flaws.  The same can be said of the steering wheel, door cards, other trim and finishes inside.

 

 

Pictured above, the engine room housing the powerplant appears clean – with spark plug wires, lines and belts appearing supple and neatly systematized aft of the big radiator up front.  The two-level trunk can swallow up a lot of cargo.  It also appears clean between the two stylish rectangular taillamps.

 

 

Find this 1946 Lincoln V12 in Toronto on the web site of The Antique and Classic Car Club of Canada (ACCCC) with a price of $22,500.

Our thanks to friend of the site Albert for turning us on to the club’s offerings.
