The Purchase of the 1941 Lincoln Race Car

In 2014 just after the secondĀ Vintage Hot Rod Association (VHRA) Pendine event. I spoke to friends and asked them what I should do?


The questions were, does the car have any racing history as it will be hard to get it on the track with none. I knew the car was a racing car and I thought it must have history, but I just did not know what it was. I took the advise and made an offer on the car which was located in Kansas, USA and owned by Mark at Model T Haven.


Mark accepted my offer and the first phase of the projected was started.



The Discovery

The story started for me back in 2011, when I found an old, what looked to be a race car, well that is what it was advertised as. The dream started, but then I knew that I had some issues, monies, space and the build its self. So I shelved the idea and went back to my 49 Panheads and my old 65 Chevy Suburban.

It would not to be for another two years, before I would look at the old 1941 Lincoln Race Car again. It was just after the first Vintage Hot Rod Association (VHRA) event at Pendine Sands, Wales 2013. I still thought about the funding and storage issues with getting the car.
