Yawkey was the sole owner of the team for 44 seasons, longer than anyone else in baseball history. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1980. A chain of islands off the coast of Georgetown, South Carolina make up the Yawkey Heritage Preserve, a nature preserve formed from land willed to the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources by Tom Yawkey. This car was housed and located at the Georgetown plantation. The first Lincoln Continental was developed as Edsel Ford's one-off personal vehicle,<SUP> </SUP>though it is believed he planned all along to put the model into production if successful. In 1938, he commissioned a custom design from the chief stylist, Eugene T. "Bob" Gregorie, ready for Edsel's March 1939 vacation. The design, allegedly sketched out in an hour by Gregorie, was an elegant convertible with a long hood covering the Lincoln V12 and long front fenders, and a short trunk with what became the Continental series' trademark, the externally mounted covered spare tire. The car could be considered a channeled and sectioned Zephyr. There was hardly any trim on it at all, making its lines superb. This car is often rated as one of the most beautiful in the world.<O:p</O:p <O:p</O:p After the attack on Pearl Harbor, Continental production was suspended, only to be re-started in 1946-1948. The 1939-1948 Continental is recognized as a "Full Classic" by the Classic Car Club of America, one of the last-built cars to be so recognized. Modeled on custom European automobiles and created by chief Ford designer E.T. Gregorie with input from Ford, the art deco-inspired car continues to influence new models; its bow-wave grille is now reflected in the 2011 Lincoln MKX, for example.

  4. We are trying to sell the car at this time. It is currently on ebay item #290548240669. Thank you for the inquiry though.
  5. I will have them posted sometime next week.
  6. This car is now for sale. Also listed on the AACA forum for sale with more pictures. Also available is 1941 Lincoln Continental Coupe. A #2 restoration. Everything works and is a driver, will post pictures of that car soon. Thanks, Ben
  7. This is a very clean and original car. Also have a 1941 Lincoln Continental Coupe for sale as well. It is a #2 restoration, and is a fully working / driving car.
  8. FOR SALE - Rare 1941 Lincoln Continental Cabriolet # 233. This 1941 Lincoln is being offered for sale. It has sat quietly in a garage since late 1961 or early 1962. The most likely reason is because of the possibility of a blown head gasket and or cracked head, and thus the engine seems to be seized. Upon recent examination, all spark plugs were pulled and it was found on the front passenger side cylinder, rust on the spark plug electrode. All other plugs were very clean. Oil was also found to be present in the radiator. <O:p</O:p There is an enormous amount of spare parts that would indicate a major reconditioning of this fine vehicle was to be carried out. These include a spare Ford flathead V-12 engine of which has been turned over by hand (not seized), three other engine blocks, various iron heads, several aluminum intakes, transmission, drive shaft, torque tube, rear differential, what appears to be a reconditioned crank shaft, a complete set of used fenders, and a huge collection of various NOS parts (new old stock), ranging from a new fender to bearings, pistons, rods, valves, trim pieces, weather stripping, and wire harnesses and the list goes on, all of which are available as well. Also available is a large collection of original Ford service manuals that date from the mid 1930s to the late 1940s.<O:p></O:p> <O:p></O:p> The vehicle is in remarkably good shape, and is a real “barn find”. There is actually a shine to the original paint in most areas, and no dents, or major scratches exist. Even more importantly, no major rust has been found in any areas of the undercarriage or floorboards. The leather upholstery is still very pliable but some staining is present. The convertible top appears to be original as well and is still very supple and has no holes or rips. The engine bay also seems to be in very original condition. Of an interesting note the engine appears to have been customized with the addition of a twin carburetor intake, which was made to look OEM as possible at the time. After careful examination there seems to be little if anything missing of the car. This rare find is located in Columbia, SC.<O:p</O:p This car is being offered for sale at $45,000.<!-- google_ad_section_end -->

  10. The carb is a Stromberg Aerotype 7-88A I do believe these were for Buicks. Late 40s -early 50s Looking to get $500.00 for it. Thanks, Ben
  11. Hi all, What we have here is an Edmunds Racing Aluminum Intake for a V-8 flathead. Also included is a Stromberg Aerotype carb. Please see pictures. Make an offer. Thanks, Ben Simons
  12. The V12 out of the car may be for sale, depending on more in depth analysis of the one in the car that is seized. The heads on the motor in the car are iron. There are also two other set oof iron heads but I need to take a closer look at them.
  13. The body number seems to be 16H-56-233
  14. Tom, Thanks for the input. I was curious about it as well. Who ever put this set-up together did a very nice job. Have you or anyone else seen a set-up ke this on any other car, Lincoln or not?
