1979 Lincoln Town Car

HISTORY OF THIS SPECIAL 1979 LINCOLN TOWNCARTHIS 1979 LINCOLN WAS PURCHASED NEW FROM OSVORNE FORD LINCOLN MERCURY IN TALLULAH. LOUISIANA IN LATE 1978 OR EARLY 1979 BY THOMPSON CLARKE WHO WAS DISTRICT ATTORNEY FOR TENSAS AND MADISON PARISHES. HE WAS DISTRICT ATTORNEY FOR 30YEARS AND DIED IN 1995. MR CLARKE WAS A FIGURE HEAD IN LA. POLITICS AND SERVED MANY GOVERNORS FROM THE HUE LONG KLAN TO EDWARD EDWARDS. HIS BEST FRIENDS GOVENOR JIMMY DAVIS (AUTHOR OF "YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE") AND JUSTIN WILSON (CAJUN CHEF AND HUMORIST) WOULD ALL JOIN THOMPSON IN THE 1979 LINCOLN FOR RIDES THROUGHTOUT TENSAS PARISH LOOKING AT COTTON FIELDS. THEY WERE DRIVEN BY LONG TIME CLARKE EMPLOYEE IKE DAVIS. A BLACK MAN WHO WOULD STOP OCCASIONALLY TO "FRESHEN" THE THREE SOUTHERN GENTLEMENS BEVERAGES FROM THE STOCK STORED IN THE TRUNK. ANYONE WHO MAY HAVE RIDDEN WITH THEM HAD TO SWEAR THEY WOULD NOT REPEAT ANYTHING THEY HEARD. IT WAS COMMONLY KNOWN THAT THE DISCUSSIONS OF THE TRIO IF LEAKED WOULD HAVE IMPACTED THE POLITICAL HISTORY. HIS DAUGHTER ACQUIRED THE CAR AND STORED IT ON THEIR PLANTATION UNTIL 1999 AND THEN SHIPPED TO NEBRASKA AND STORED AT THE AIRPORT FIRE STATION AND THEN MOVED TO THEIR FARM IN 2005. I BOUGHT THIS CAR IN 2006 BECAUSE I HAD SOLD THESE AT THAT TIME AND COULD NOT AFFORD ONE. I FOUND THIS ONE AND LOVED THE HISTORY. I INTENDED TO RESTORE IT BUT HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO TAKE THE TIME TO DO IT. I ALSO DO NOT HAVE A COVERED AREA TO KEEP IT SO IT HAS DETERIORATED SINCE I BOUGHT IT. I HAVE SPENT ABOUT 2600. 00 TO KEEP IT RUNNING AND IT DOES. THE A/C NEEDS REPAIR. HE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM NEEDS WORK. THE PAINT IS THE WORST OF IT AND THE VINYL TOP NEEDS REPLACEING. THE HEADLINER NEEDS REPAIR . THE SMALL WINDOW ON DRIVER SIDE OUT. THE ENGINE HAS BEEN TUNED. A NEW BATTERY INSTALLED. EW PLUGS. nbsp;TIRES. ADIATOR. OSES AND EXHAUST SYSTEM REPLACED. THIS WOULD BE A WONDERFUL CAR TO REDO BECAUSE IT IS STILL IN PRETTY GOOD SHAPE. I THOUGHT ABOUT DONATING TO THE MASONS (WHICH I AM) BUT WE HAVE ENOUGH CARS FOR PARADES NOW.
