If you are in the market for a classic car, browsing through Lincoln classifieds here at Want Ad Digest is a great place to start. Old Lincoln cars are the manifestation of classic cars, and are still considered to be one of the most timeless cars in existence today. Learn about some of the history behind classic Lincoln cars right here, and check out a forum for Lincoln enthusiasts at the end of this article.
The Lincoln Motor Company was founded by Henry Leland in 1917 - he named it after, of course, Abraham Lincoln. The company was then bought out by Ford in 1922. In 1939, Ford introduced the Mercury as a mid to high level car, thus ensuring the company had a wide variety of prices with their cars to accommodate everyone's price ranges; however, Lincolns would come to be considered luxury cars.
Prior to the Mercury, the Lincoln Zephyr came out in 1936 as one of their most popular models. The Zephyr was considered to be quite advanced for its time, however, it was not too "futuristic" looking; some of Zephyr's competitors had been criticized for trying to look too cutting edge, but the Zephyr embodied a perfect combination of an advanced design with a look simultaneously appropriate for the 1930s.
The Zephyr remained in production for more than 10 years. It should be noted that it was quite remarkable the Zephyr was selling so well at the time, because during the 1930s, with the Depression running rampant, many people stopped buying luxury cars, which this was considered to be. Thus, many credit the Lincoln Zephyr as having kept luxury cars alive.
In addition to the classic Lincoln Zephyr, you may come across the Lincoln Continental in Lincoln classifieds, which was born from the Zephyr structure in 1938. This automobile had the trademark spare tire on the back side of the car that many people imagine when picturing a classic car. The Continental came out in coupe and convertible versions up until 1948. Considered to be a timeless car, the Continental evolved into the Continental Mark in 1949.
Undoubtedly, one of the most popular classic Lincoln cars for sale is the Town Car, which appeared on the scene in 1981. Believed to be the traditional luxury sedan, the Town Car is the largest vehicle built in America at almost 18 feet long. The first Town Cars resembled the 1970s Lincoln Continental, but new designs were introduced in 1985, and the Town Car continued to make further advancements over the years - in fact, they are still being manufactured today.
Interestingly, Lincoln is known as the main source of limousines used by presidents and the US government, but you can easily find an affordable luxury classic Lincoln car to own yourself, here in our Lincoln classifieds section of Want Ad Digest.
