From all of my due diligence, he is in fact a 2 owner Lincoln Convertible.

“Let us start at the top, hall we...?”

Bio of this 2 owner lady:

Owner number 1:

She was owned by E. Lippert, he owner and founder of one of the largest privately owned Aero Space contractors of its time. Mr. Lippert had very close ties to the Kennedy family and was at the Ambassador Hotel the very night Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated in Los Angeles June 6th 1968.

Mr. Lippert was at theAmbassador Hotelto support Robert F. Kennedy presidential campaign. Additionally he worked closely with theNASAlaunch on the Mariner 4 space probe to take the first pictures of the surface of Mars.

Mr. Lippert cared and loved her until his passing. I was fortunate to rescue her from(OWNER NUMBER 2)his care taker who knew how special this Continental was, ut just didn't know how to care for her.

She truly is a piece of American history.

Mr. Lippert only drove her 59,838 miles over her lifetime.

What that means is:

1,343.0384 Miles per year

111.0748 Miles per month

27.72604 Miles a week

3.9997 Miles a day!!!!!!!!!!

“Luxury tailored to your good taste”

"The NEW BLACK TOP GRADE LEATHER hides were picked by me personally.”

When each of this Continental's seats were re-upholstered, xtraordinary care was exercised to achieve perfect workmanship with every meticulous stitch."

When I found her, he was sitting under a cover sleeping inside a garage in Orange County California. As I looked her over, knew she was solid as solid could get. Her bones are what you would expect growing up inLos Angeles California.

Her body needed very little work.

Here were the steps:

**. **

Prior to paint, er chrome trim was all removed re-chromed and professionally hand polished.

1. She was taken down to the metal (by hand) NOT by sand blasting. I was amazed at how perfect she was under that faded paint. She spent well over 90 days in paint and body. "No need to rush perfection".

2. Then we began by degreasing the metal to remove contaminants left over from the stripping process. The metal is then treated and coated with zinc for superior corrosion resistance and better adhesion of the subsequent paint layers.

3. Primer was the first layer of paint. It is formulated to fill tiny scratches and imperfections in the body and give the subsequent color coats something to adhere to. Unlike the drab gray primer of yesteryear, e used colored primer to hide future damage from rock or stone chips.

4. The base coat, r color layer, as the next in the process. In the past, his was the final layer of paint, hich was directly exposed to the environment. We then applied clear coat paint over the final color layer. (Clear coat is a layer of paint without color pigment added-it is simply clear paint. The clear coat adds high gloss while protecting the colored basecoat from scratching, hipping, nd the effects of the environment.)

Finally....Her paint is thick and smooth as you can see in the photos.
