MotoeXotica is pleased to offer this beautifully restored 1949 Baby Lincoln. Officially named the Series 9EL but commonly referred to as the Baby Lincoln, he reference is from Lincoln’s most expensive model the Cosmopolitan. This was Ford’s first post-war vehicle and was the start of platform sharing between different manufactures. Originally intended to be Mercury, ord decided to sell it under the Lincoln name plate. Baby Lincolns are rare with 1949 being the only year of production, pecifically the 9EL series being the rarest of them all. The series had sunk-in or “frenched” headlights, ircular taillights, nd a “frowning” grill which speaks for itself. Ditching the V-12 that normally paired with Lincoln they introduced Ford’s new “flathead” V-8, he new engine had a displacement of 337 cubic inches. Also new was the corporate shift in all model lines to independent front suspension, emi-elliptic rear leaf springs, nd open drive shafts. Lincoln continued the model line of the Cosmopolitan and Baby, ut the Baby convertible would cease in production in 1949.
This Baby is truly something special. It is truly hard to find a fault with this classic; both paint and body are in excellent condition. On the exterior, he chrome is in great shape with no signs of age or imperfections. The headlights fit tightly in their recessed hole; the chrome molding is in great condition too. However the optional fog lights are together with no cracks but they are currently inoperable, long with the windshield wipers. Recently finished with a high-quality base clear coat in stunning Alberta Blue, his Baby is in show condition, erfect for shows or impressing onlookers; there are no visible cracks or scratches in the finish. The body is extremely clean and straight with no evidence of damage repair, ven the rear side skirts are straight as an arrow. Lincoln’s one year only tan power convertible top works as it should, t has been recently redone and looks fantastic with absolutely no tears or discoloration. Also adding to the color scheme are the newer four ply Remington whitewall tires with very minor tread wear, ith the Lincoln chrome dish wheel covers being in ideal shape as well. Taking a step inside, he same ultra clean theme continues, ith most of the interior upholstery being recently recovered in the correct style and colors. The period correct dash board is fully functional with the original gauges still in place.
