Since we first listed this car. we have done a significant amount of work. We have stripped and treated the entire undercarriage with POR15 rust preventative paint. and then sealed it with 3 coats of PPG high gloss catalyzed high gloss black paint. We then re-conditioned the leather interior and shot black primer to get ready for paint. this car runs great and everything works bring us offers or buy it and have us finish the restoration. We are the 3rd owner of the car. The second owner had just commissioned a restoration specialist to begin the process of restoring it. They got as far as stripping the paint off and started block sanding it when my clients husband died. This brought the cars progress to a halt and the car was returned home unfinished. The family gathered together to restart the process. They had all the trim and bumpers triple plated. They bought new glass all around. etc. and soon realized it was a massive undertaking best suited for a shop like mine. A mutual friend hooked me up with the widow and we struck a deal. In the end. we were given a gift before towing the car away. A full size. still in the box. die-cast replica of the car her and her husband were so proud of. Extremely nice people to deal with under very sad circumstances. Anybody that has followed the story of Edsel Ford with regards to the Continental MK II knows the story about how long it took to get this special car's design approved. how each one was almost individual to itself. and how it is not a Lincoln. If you want to insult an owner of one of these. call it a Lincoln and he will quickly correct you. These cars broke out on their own away from Lincoln. The only thing Lincoln on these cars are the engines. This car is 100 % complete and then some. Not only complete. but she runs and drives down the road as if brand new. The car is an amazing driver. You will notice a large piece of equipment in the trunk. This is the evaporator for the air conditioner system. The A/C unit is an aftermarket add-on to keep passengers cool during hot summer days. The Lincoln 368 ci Y block engine boasts over 285 hp. Along with its automatic transmission. it needs all the hp to kick the approximately 5. 00 pound car down the road. The odometer shows 82k miles. The family says the engine has been rebuilt. There are no documents supporting this. The engineers were drinking too much coffee and. when tasked with creating the undercarriage. came away with a Y frame. This is an interesting set up. Not only is it one of the most stout frame designs. it offered the opportunity to literally hide everything. The drive line. wires. hoses. etc. were all hidden above the frame. One of the biggest design ideas was the exhaust system. This runs out of the manifold. thru the inner fender well. then down between the frame and the body. You literally cannot see any piping until the resonator pops out just before the muffler at the back of the car. Cool doesn't even begin to describe this design. This just covers the very beginnings of design features in this car that make it unique. Can you imagine walking into the manufacturer today to find workers block sanding your car? They did with these. The interior door panels. seats. dashboard. kick panels. and back tray package are all made out of leather. The brakes are power. the steering is power. the seats are power. and last but not least. all 6 windows are power. That's right. even the front vent windows are power. Our goal with this car is to perform a full scale nut and bolt restoration. The car is pretty much stripped down on the outside now. Our painter of choice will be Mike with Mullins Enterprises. Mike's our Concourse painter and responsible for painting the 63' Roadster we built last Summer. He's also a go to guy for Pierce Arrows. etc. We have started stripping the frame and pans free of the terrible looking undercoating they put on the underside after the car was built. It did its job. however. what butt ugly stuff it is. While going thru the car top to bottom we have literally found no surface rust whatsoever. The car has been perfectly frozen in time. Don't let the pictures of the undercarriage scare you. This is what we call progress. If you want more information on this car. please call me. Vehicle Photos: Vehicle Warranty:

When selling a Classic car. or buying one. do so with respect. We don't sell used cars. we sell pieces of art. If after buying a Classic car from you. you feel as if you were cheeted out of a few dollars. we didn't do our job. We both have to feel as if we received a "fair" deal. We understand all too well. that the car you are selling. or consigning has some sort of significant meaning to you. or a family member of yours.  The Shop Cars we have for sale are my personal cars. Each one of them means something to me. Try to cheat me out of a few bucks makes me feel awkward and a little upset. When buying a car from us. we will help facilitate transportation anywhere in the World. One of the most misunderstood components of buying a car out of your immediate area that needs transporting. is the cost. We can ship a car from Washington State to Holland. for less than what it takes to ship a car to New York City. We recently shipped a 1958 Corvette to Holland for $1. 50 door to door.   We shipped a 1936 Packard Convertible Coupe. for $2. 50 door to door to New York City.   We list all consignment cars with a minimum of 10 Classic car sales sites. including eBay. and our own website www. jimsclassicgarage. com. Please sign up on our site for updates on all cars we have for sale. and watch videos of our restoration projects on our website or YouTube. What makes our online sales so successful. is that we photograph cars as if we are buying them ourselves. It's not necessarily the quality of the pictures. it's where/what we take the pictures of. 60% of all pictures are of the undercarriage. Selling 99% of all cars outside the State of Washington. we have to be able to depict the car correctly online. and in the exact condition that it's in. Transparency in selling our cars is why we are so successful. Having a 100% approval rating with eBay buyers and sellers helps. While looking at our website. take the time to read our Testimonials section. These represent just a small percentage of Testimonials we can list. Each reference would be more than happy to talk with you about their experience with our Company. If you have any questions regarding our Consignment service.
