A Full Classic by the CCCA
Was owned by a retired Boing engineer that was with their design program and an avid car nut. He and his wife bought the car around the mid to late 90s from a family friend whos parents had bought it in the 40s. They decided, along with another car nut and retired Boing guy who had lots of piston engine experience, to disassemble it and restore to new condition. Their friend had actually donated time to an Unlimited Hydroplane team in the fifties and sixties, re-engineering V-12 Rolls-Royce and Allison aircraft engines (similar but much larger to the Lincoln) to run in race conditions demanding running at more than twice their designed RPM.
It was a twelve-year resto project done obviously with a lot of love, keeping very strict to adherence to factory specs save for the absolutely stunning white leather interior which I don’t think was offered from the factory in the day. Plainly a brilliant restoration that has garnered a few awards in every show it’s been entered. A very fine piece of equipment and history, done to a “T” Supportive doc included.
