Some purists might pooh-pooh the idea of taking a classic Lincoln like this and giving it the full resto-mod treatment. The goal was to retain its classic good looks and yet upgrade its driveline and interior to make more roadworthy and comfortable. The transformation began around 2004 starting with a very solid, rust free body and chassis in where the car was taken apart where needed, to prepare it for its new driveline and paintwork. After many hours of sanding and blocking to achieve the straightness in form that you see here, it was then shot in this very dramatic Polo Green base-coat clear coat skin, which accentuates its timeless lines beautifully. From its massive detailed chrome grille bookended by frenched headlights, to its gun-sight tail-lights, bear-claw latches and factory fender skirts, these are just a few of the unique touches that make this convertible a true visual standout. To create a thoroughly new driving experience, the original V-12 engine and manual transmission were removed in favor of a more modern and efficient fuel-injected, Mercury 5.0 liter engine and three-speed automatic-overdrive transmission. Its final drive is supplied by a tried and true nine-inch Ford rear end. Vintage Air makes for much cooler cruising as does its large capacity radiator. In addressing ride quality and performance; a Fatman Mustang II style front end was added along with power steering and disc brakes for better turning and stopping power while the original rear transverse leaf springs were replaced with upgraded parallel springs. The tan all-leather interior and German carpeting surrounds you with sumptuous luxury as does the esthetic beauty of its classic deco dashboard with unique and functional rectangular gauges. This grand touring interior also features desirable amenities such as tilt steering, power brakes and windows along with a fully electric power convertible top.
