1940 Lincoln Cabriolet --- #103 of 141
built in 1940. Body is all original with the exception
of a third brake light and a side view mirror. Owned
for over 40 years. I purchased this car from a Gal in
Tucson. As with all Legends, there
is the typical story-line that includes a secondhand
retelling of titillating, though somewhat scandalous
details. For this reason, I will decline to expound.
Suffice it to say that this was a marvelous car in every
respect, and I was determined to own it and restore
it to its original condition. Normal activities of daily
living slowed my progress, but after over a decade,
the '40 was fully restored. In 1989, I took my beauty
on what turned out to be an 8-hour trip to Flagstaff
from Phoenix. That was not a typo --- It took 8 hours
to travel 144 miles. By the time I got back to Phoenix,
it was clear to me that I would need to make some modifications.
I have been working on cars for close to 7-decades.
One thing that I could never resist was perfecting my
work. Over the next decade or so, I breathed and dreamed
about how to restore this fine distinctive classic into
a resto-mod that would retains its elegant styling,
while performing in the 21st century world --- 2.5 hours
to Flagstaff from Phoenix was my goal and I was determined
to achieve it!
Finally, my Wife and I were driving wherever we wanted
with the top down and the heat on! These were glorious
times....The car has won over 42-awards, and I have
to admit that it would have been many more, but we were
asked to give other owner's a chance to win something,
so we would stand back and not enter. Regardless, the
car just could not help magnetizing the accolades and
sheer excitement of the crowd...What can we say? We
could not help it that we were beautiful!
My Wife passed away a few months ago, and driving the
car does not hold the same thrill for me as it once
did.. It is time to let someone else enjoy this rare
luxury. There is nothing quite like driving down the
street in this car. In addition to the smooth and luxurious
ride, it is impossible to not be mistaken for a movie
star, or at least a very important person. Although
I consider myself to be a regular, everyday grease monkey,
I have enjoyed everything about this car.
