Get READY to STOP Car shows while arriving in this car.IT TURNS HEADS LIKE YOU WOULD NOT BELIEVE!
If you're in the market for a Slab Side Lincoln... this is the car for you.
The GREEN MACHINE aka "BAD Grandpa"is up for sale... Located in Rochester, Ythis car came to me via Mark Grimes (nebraska hot rod builder) 2 years ago in VASTLY Different shape than you see in the pictures.
It was not in bad shape body wise, ut mechanically it was on its last leg.
with only two rust spots, nd in desperate need of a power train rebuild and paint job.
Within 2 weeks, got to work with Vinny at Skully Customs to handle the body and air ride.once that was completed, t was shipped off to Tony Rubert Competition here in Rochester, Y for the power train.
Here's all that's been done to the car.
EDIT: Yes all the windows work perfectlyAC WAS WORKING BEFORE REBUILD ITS HARD TO GET NEW R12Yes you can drive it low, ut the rear has to be raised a little bit, always drive it with the rear raked all the way up looks good that wayCLOSE TO 5000 MILES ON REBUILD

This car Truly is one of a kind and turns heads wherever you go like you wouldn't believereally its like you're a celebrity in this thing... rarely to people ever see 19ft of twisted steel and sex appealrolling towards them all grumpy and low....It's a great car! Fires up every time.
Selling because I've taken this car as far as I want to take it... and I have a Dodge Viper that I drive on sunny days now.I don't need 4 Cars :( so I'm thinning the herd..
MY LOSS IS YOUR GAIN.
