1951 Lincoln Sport Sedan – Mercer Street, NYC

December 29th, 2009 by Ian


Spend more than 30 seconds on the streets of Manhattan and you’re bound to see at least one blacked out Lincoln Town Car jockeyed by a black suit with a lead foot. Coming into contact with these thoroughly bland livery vehicles on a daily basis makes it easy to forget about the heritage behind the Lincoln nameplate. Lincoln was afterall the official limousine for the President dating back to 1939, when the then coveted brand reeked of status, taste and American luxury. We were immediately reminded of this former glory upon spotting this stunning ’51 Sport Sedan casually parked in front of Soho’s Antique Garage. Based on the venue title alone, this baby blue beauty deserves a permanent spot out front. It’s still the peacock in the room – suicide doors, white wall tires and dimensions grand enough to let the neighbors know you have arrived.
