FROM 2/17/17 – There’s just something fun about a car with an interesting past. I’ve noticed that late ’60s Lincolns seem to have often been involved in some type of interesting enterprise, questionable activity or historically important event that many have some impressive stories behind them.

From Scott B – This car was the car used in the film “Dead Presidents.” It was also used in a music video with Issac Hayes. That is the car. I am helping a friend sell this car. She is a friend of the Director of “Dead Presidents,” Allen Hughes, who the car belongs to.
The interior is missing a couple of parts, and the dash is cracked. Otherwise the seats are all but perfect as well as the head liner.
The car was running as it should when it was parked. It has not been started in years but the proper process should be fine. No information regarding any damage to electrical as a result of being stored in the barn.
The body is in excellent condition other then the vinyl top. The paint is faded, but no dents and no rust, California car. Been in the barn for 5-7 years. More photos can be seen here.
Yes, this Lincoln has some problems and I don’t think being in a movie adds a ton of value to it, but what a cool machine and fun history. I’d clean it up, get the engine running, install a new vinyl top and take this big cruiser out for a spin! If you’d like to do the same, you can reach Scott using the form below:
