1961 Lincoln Continental Commercial
I recently discovered this rare two minute commercial on 16 mm film and had
it professionally transferred to a flash drive so that I could upload it
here. This hasn't been seen by the public in fifty years! Enjoy.
This commercial first aired on "Alfred Hitchcock Presents", November 1,
1960, season 6, episode 6, "Pen Pal" and was shown on all other episodes
1949 Lincoln Cosmopolitan Convertible Barn Find-Part I
One of three videos of this saga- Incredible find of this top-of-the-line
Lincoln being exhumed from a garage in Hemet after sitting there for 30
years. This is a black plate California car whose owner had it since 1953.
After his death in 1979 the car was parked in this garage until we exhumed
it in September of 2009. The daughter of the car is delightful and gave us
a detailed description of how loved this car was and is today. Enjoy!!
Mercury Cars of 1949 to 1951
The Mercury car model has been around since 1939 and was introduced as a
mid range priced vehicle by Edsel Ford.
Cars built between 1949 and 1951, would in later years prove to be very
popular amongst the Hot Rod Car Enthusiasts. They would reshape the steel
to produce cars that would set a new standard for Customized Vehicles.
Early model Mercury cars of 1949 to 1951 had a 90 degree V type, "L" head 8
cylinder engine with a displacement of 255.4 cubic inches. These engines
put out 112 horsepower at 3600 R.P.M.
Later model cars of 1955 replaced the "L" engine with the "Y" block V-8
producing between 188 and 198 horsepower dependant on the
engine type for that year.
This slide show is a part of a series of pictures of cars from different
car shows that I've attended here in Southern California U.S.A.

American Graffiti '51 Mercury Coupe
Interview with the "Late-Great," Glenn Shimmin, builder of an American
Graffiti '51 Mercury replica. He consulted with the original people who
customized the cars for the 1973 film American Graffiti in order to get all
the details right. This interview gives one some deep insight into how the
original '51 Mercury was quickly customized for the movie. Look for a
brief appearance by Candy Clark in the video who autographed the sun visor
on this cool car. Unfortunately, Glenn died on 7/26/2012 in a shop accident
while working on a car. For more on American Graffiti visit my website:
