Cadillac by far. This beautifully flowing design in '48 was far ahead of its time
and no match for any of the competition. The Lincoln is a beautiful car as well but it looks from a different era by comparison. The Lincoln Cosmopolitan also looks chunky and ungainly beside the '48 & '49 Caddy.

PICs: Which '48? Cadillac or Lincoln by John Bono #39641
Cadillac. So much more modern looking, and such a beautiful design! (EOM) by Barry Levittan #39641.1
The Lincoln was the last of a beautiful styling trend dating from the later 1930's, by David Holcombe #39641.2
The '48 Cadillac still had the flat head V8. The OHV-V8 wasn't introduced until 1949. (EOM) by John Bono #39641.2.1
CADILLAC. I didn't have to think much on this one. The Lincoln looks like a late 30's car in by George Schire #39641.3

Cadillac! Sleek styling. Nice chrome. Love the fins. Lincoln looks grotesque. (EOM) by Tim Kubiak #39641.11
Prefer the Cadillac. For me the first Continental was beautiful.. by John Roberts #39641.12
The Caddy for sure. I didn't care for what they did to the front end of the Continental after 1940 (EOM) by Michael Rodriguez #39641.13
Caddy please. I generally don't care for luxury cars, never paid attention to the 48 Caddy before. (EOM) by Bruce Parsons #39641.14
I have never been a big fan of either one but these are both beautiful. (EOM) by Dick Johnson #39641.15
The Caddy has gracefull body lines. The Lincoln looks like it was cobbled together from to many by Gary Rockwood #39641.16
Caddy looks newer (EOM) by Ron Dietrich #39641.17
Great styling from both the late ’30s and late ‘40s. Caddy gets the vote for its better engine. (EOM) by John Bono #39641.18
