    Here is a Picture of Ina Mae Overman's Lincoln in it's original custom form. Before it was re- done and had the rear wheel openings radiused.
    I believe that the car is for sale still.

  4. Valley Custom did the rear wheel openings when they redid the car in 1954!

    And then there is the later version with headlights extended out over bumper:

    Current Condition I believe.
    Very well documented Valley Custom.
    Had I the means. I would own it in a heart beat.

    That is a beautiful custom.
    Very tastefully executed.
    IDEA: Eliminate the 4 rear quarter "gizmos.'

    Terrific little film clip there. Love it when early Hot Rod and Custom film surfaces.
    Can anyone I.D. the (LA area?) High School?
     
  10. I saw that classified listing as well but didn't know if it was still for sale since the last "bump" was over a year ago.

    Sancho.
    The listing on the CCC is that old as well.

    I would love to oversee the restoration of this car, but the last asking price that I saw was not realistic, despite the provenance.

    thanx for the awesome clip, the Lincoln has had some real custom history.
