    Friend of my brothers called him and asked about some old cars and parts,,so they went have a look see. Turns out to be 47 Lincoln Convert,,and a super rare 1942 Conti.( only 200 made ),,Couple v-12s,,Front ends like a dozen Lincoln transmissions
    Dashes etc,etc Guess the person who passed away was a Lincoln nut,,and looks like they now have alotta stuff to move

    It's amazing what people rathole away thinking that someday they'll do something with it. The wife asks me all the time what I'm going to do with all the stuff I hae stored away...I tell her it's my life insurance policy!

  4. Grab the steering wheels and run! And don't look back.
     

  5. Personally I think they are a cool. Wish I had the coin to buy the vert.

    Wow --- I went over yesterday to a friend of mine to see how he was doing, He is a collector with about 20 cars and he just purchased the same Lincoln ( not convert ) in un restored cond. but in perfect shape and running ... small world
     
  19. is there a diffference between a lincoln convert and a cabriolet
    My dad has a 42 cont. cabriolet and they only made 136
    rare bird none the less and worth picking up for sure
    let me know if they want to part with any of it

    The 42 I'm told is really good ,,the vert needs floor work but not tragic.( as well as what you can see ).few aluminum intakes and all ...I already called dibs on the front axle :D

    Those transmissions are the way to O.D in your Flathead/torquetube Ford.

    I've got an uncle down in So Cal goes by the name of Mrerv Adkins. He's probably one of the largest collectors of Early Lincoln stuff on the West Coast. If you're looking for rare or hard to find parts PM me and I'll send you his cell number.
