The Lincoln Lido was a bodystyle of the Lincoln EL-series of the Lincoln marque during the 1950 and 1951 model years. It was introduced on July 5, 1950 as somewhat of Lincoln's answer to the GM hardtops that debuted in 1949. List price for the 1950 model was $2721. It was similar to the Mercury Monterey and the up market Lincoln Cosmopolitan Capri, all were two door coupes. The 1950 to 1951 models featured a vinyl[1][3] or canvas-covered roof, fender skirts, bright roof drip rails and rocker panel moldings, dual door mirrors, a gold-colored hood ornament from the Cosmopolitan and a custom leather interior with special door and side panels. An electric clock was standard.[1] Few were sold,

However it reappeared as a special show car in 1963 called the Lincoln Continental Lido.
