Steve Wertheimer’s Hot Rod 1949 Lincoln Cosmopolitan

Written by Ken Altes

I cannot tell from my pics of this Cosmopolitan has the four-speed Hydramatic automatic transmission supplied by General Motors or the three-speed manual. The stock engine was a 337 cu. in. version of the Ford flathead, giving 152 hp, although this car has a lot of performance parts and is likely much more powerful.1949 Lincoln Cosmopolitan in Austin tx 1949 Lincoln Cosmopolitan interior 1949 Lincoln Cosmopolitan modified engine1949 Lincoln Cosmopolitan in Austin Texas

Bill Collings’ 1957 Lincoln Premier in SW Austin

Written by Ken Altes

Fantastic, rare Lincoln Premier with a 300hp 368 cu. in. V8 twisting a Turbo-Matic automatic transmission exclusive to Lincoln. Only 3,676 of these were built in 1957 — this one destined to be a very desirable custom. Bill runs an extraordinary custom car fabrication shop achieving the highest levels of craftsmanship. If you have any question about his extraordinary talents, consider what he’s achieved making mandolins and guitars.
