Maybe it's just me but these don't seem to attract a lot of attention.

No it’s lots of people who feel that way.  

Not well known or understood is that from 52-55 Lincoln had abandoned the luxury segment to Cadillac.  (Realistically how could you compete with that juggernaut?). 


Lincolns target class at this time was Buick and Oldsmobile.  (This is well discussed in the Special Interest Autos article). So today they just aren’t that special.  
 

Years ago a friend summed up the 52-55 Lincoln’s as nothing but “heavy duty Fords”.  I think he was right. 
 

Now for 1956 Lincoln finally stepped up to take a swing at Cadillac.  By 1958 they were directly competing excess to excess.

'52-4 always had a "frightened" countenance to me. They always looked like the headlight bezels were missing. The '55 facelift was much better- but it lacked the de rigueur wrap around windshield. The only claim to fame with these were the Panamericana road races

He's not too motivated with a price like that.  Instead of paying half the shipping, he should just charge a fair price for the car.  One of the least "Lincolnesque" Lincolns.  Basically a dressed up Mercury.  But still a nice and fine car to own.  For the right price...

I have always liked these early '50s Lincolns too, but not in Alaska. You might as well import a car from Russia. It wouldn't be so bad if you lived in British Columbia.
