LOOK AT THIS THING! THIS THING IS RESTORED TO SHOW CONDITION. THESE THINGS HAVE BECOME VERY DESIRABLE. THEY WERE DESIGNED ORIGINALLY FOR WORLD WAR II. LATER BECAME AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC. MANY PEOPLE THINK THAT LINCOLN MADE THE ONLY 4 DR CONVERTIBLE AFTER 1950, NOT TRUE. THE THING GAINED ITS POPULARITY BECAUSE IT IS SO BASIC AND EASY TO MAINTAIN. PROMOTED AS A FUN CAR TO TAKE TO THE BEACH. TOP GOES DOWN, DOORS COME OFF. WIND SHIELD FOLDS DOWN. REAR SEATS FOLD DOWN FOR HAULING ITEMS. IF IT GETS CAUGHT IN THE RAIN TOPLESS, THAT’S OK. FLOORS HAVE DRAINS AND THE SEATS ARE MILDEW RESISTANT. AIR COOLED MOTOR PLACED OVER THE REAR AXLE GIVES ADDED TRACTION IN THE DUNES. THIS CAR HAS HAD THE SAME OWNER SINCE 1999. ENGINE IS REBUILT, CARB REBUILT, NEW BATTERY. VERY DRY, CLEAN BODY AND FLOOR POWER ANTENNA. QUALITY REPAINT. NEW TOP AND UPHOLSTERY. HAS STEREO SYSTEM, NEW TIRES, RECENT EXHAUST. ONLY 69,000 ORIGINAL MILES. SOUNDS LIKE A LOT OF FUN.
