About 7 years ago I saw an ad for a 1942 Lincoln Continental Coupe (200 built) for about $5000. It was a runner but was fitted with a Cadillac 500ci BB. So I rang up. Turned out it was being sold by a bank who had repo'd it. It had been standing in storage for a year or so since then. So I rang the bank and told 'em it'd been fitted with a non standard engine and wasn't worth much anymore. In the end we did I deal. I paid the storage fees (about $3000) and they'd release the car to me. Was a great car. Even took it drag racing! Sold it on a few years later for over $10.000. Bought a rough '32 Fordor parts car with good frame and title last year at a scrapyard auction for Model-A money, advertised as a '28 Model-A. Chassis No. 18-5XXX. Must have been the first week of production. A buddy of mine followed up a lead last year on a Model-A body in an orchard in South Dakota after ignoring it for years. In the end he was in the area and went along just for kicks. Turned out to be a solid '32 Fordor body. Bought it for $800 and now his brother is rodding it. Got a mint '32 pedal box and pedals on Ebay 10 years ago for $1 plus postage!
