Comments: "I purchased this car in 2002 from an estate in Sandusky, MI. Prior to that it went through Kruse Auctions in approximately 1980. It had been painted and lightly restored prior to that. I suspect that this car may have been originally delivered in the NY or NJ metropolitan area; one of the keys has the name of a defunct locksmith in Harrison, NJ stamped on it. NY DMV will not run the serial number due to privacy concerns and I have received no response from NJ DMV. The Ford research center says the records are lost on the production and original delivery information for some of the early Lincolns, this being one (production date is May 1936). I'm searching for any previous owners, prior to 1980 in order to try and trace this beautiful machine's life back as far as I can. I'd suspect that at some time it was stored away for many years, there is no evidence of repaired rust, and when I rebuilt the engine, it appeared that I was the first one to remove and disassemble the lower end of the engine. Maybe there is some "old geezer" still alive who's family bought this new when they were a kid or something, or maybe it was hidden away during the war to keep it from the junkman when there was a huge recycling push for the war effort, especially older V12 heavy and fuel swilling cars."

Comments: "I'm a Thunderbird collector and our unit bodied 'Birds shared the assembly line at Wixom (Assembly, Wixom, MI) with Lincolns after 1958. The ROT or build sheet is often found tucked into the seat springs. My '63 had TWO! Its own, plus the Lincoln convertible build next in line. How surprised would a Lincoln owner be getting his 43 year old paperwork?"

Comments: "I am looking for any information on "The Car" - a modified 1971 Lincoln built by Barris Customs for the 1977 movie The Car. Of the six built, a steel one is the only one left and was sold to a collector. I heard a story at one time that someone had seen it and there was almost nothing left due to rust. Any information is appreciated."

Car last seen: Early '80s, at Datsun Dealership near Pittsburgh International Airport, Pittsburgh, Pa.

Comments:"It was my father's car and he bought it from my mother's grandparents. He sold the car before my time, so I don't know much about the car, except from the stories I have heard about it. So all I know about it was it had a little body rust at the time he sold it, suicide doors, and its left turn blinker came on when you washed the car. It was traded in for a Datsun in the late '70s/early '80s (not sure about when it was traded in) at a Datsun dealership near Pittsburgh International Airport. Any leads on this car would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Steve."
