Post-war Lincoln evolved from 1944 to their introduction in 1949. In 1952 the whole range was restyled with Lincoln receiving a new V8 giving 160bhp. Bodily they were high waisted having more legroom in the rear. Later boosted to 205bhp the engine was quiet and the whole car gave a comfortable ride. Over the following years the cars were steadily but unobtrusively improved, being voted the ?Safest car in America? in 1955. The Continental of 1955 was introduced for the prestige market. Dramatic changes occurred with the change to unitised construction in 1958 and the incorporation of the Continental as a production model brought the total of models available up to 10. Small changes were made in the following years. This is a book of contemporary road and comparison tests, technical and specification data, model introductions, competition, driver?s reports. Models include: Cosmopolitan, Capri, Continental Mk II, III, IV, V.
