1950 Lincoln Other

1950 Lincoln Cosmopolitan Capri coupe. 337 Flathead V8 runs quite good. Automatic transmission needs work. It drives, but would need some work because it tries to go forward in neutral. Drive and lo seem normal. Reverse seems to be locked in forward/reverse and won't move. So, it needs transmission work. There are adapter kits out there to put GM transmissions behind these Lincoln V8s. I replace all 4 wheel cylinders, master cylinder, brake hoses, rear brake line. Shoes were fair, drums looked quite good. It has enough brakes to yard drive. Hydraulic windows don't work. Power seat, not working. Lights not working. Outer rockers, floors, trunk floor needs work. Normal dings and dents. Chrome is all there with normal scuffs and pitting. Very complete, only thing I see missing is the left outer mirror. All emblems, trim, hub caps, skirts, all there. Door panels and air cleaner in the trunk. Engine runs smooth, no knocks, smoke or odd noises. Carb could use a rebuild and I have it running off a gas bottle. The tank looks decent, but I have not tried running off it. 3 wide white bias tires, 1 radial with port a wall, all need replacing due to age. Great car to restore. 1 of only 509 ever built. It had a leather roof, which was 99% gone. There is pitting and a little rust through under the rear glass. I primed and rattle canned the roof brown to protect it. Dash is complete. Seats, door panels, headliner very bad so it needs complete interior restoration. Clear title in my name. More pictures on request. Local pick up only. Reasonable offers considered.
