Chris Kuppinger : Stu, Awesome car! It really came out great. You have to be so happy and proud, as I'm sure your folks would have been. One thing though...You better not tell your better half that you're smuggling in strange women in your trunk! From the looks of it, you could fit a whole harem in there! Have fun with the new toy, Chris

Juliano leone : Cool car man! I just bought a '62 with only 17,000 original miles. The only thing is that it was kept outside. The interior is grea, but the paint and dash pad need some work. If you have any advice on parts or what not, send me a message at julian_leon@msn.com THanks!

IT was well worth it until the dumb shit that was moving it onto the trailer with a forlift dropped it and bent the frame :-( . Then he just bought a regular 4 door sedan and we still have it to this dayWe also have a 71 cadallic coupe deville and a 69 roadrunner.
Mike Stortini : Love the car and the effort spent bringing it back to life. I have a 1985 Cartier Town Car that I have had since new (and never winter driven or "smacked". Hope in another 20 years it will look as good as your 63 does today.

John McHugh : Looks great Stu,have just started on a 63 myself

Pete from Montreal: I've been looking for a '61-'63 Lincoln. I haven't seen alot of them around Montreal, Quebec where I live.
Mike: Hey Pete I know of a '63? Continental sedan for sale here in Toronto I believe the asking price is $5000, so it would be worth the 5 1/2 hour drive from Montreal to check it out.
Johnnyb2136@yahoo.com: I loved the story... I am also restoring a 1963 Lincoln, already done with interior but slowly looking for exterior parts like trunk lid, windshield,grille, and bumpers...wish me luck.

soundcity@earthlink.net: !'ve enjoyed your website for the past year or more. I, too, own a 63 (trible black convertible, and try to drive it at least once a week. Antique Auto Battery now offers an authentic Ford Power Punch 27F battery with internals built to military specs (no maintenance-6 to 10 year life span) and repro original battery cables, available from Baker, would really be the frosting on the cake! Excellent work!
i got a nova!: my dad did most of the body work on that car......beautiful by the way

Bill Prindible: Stu, I just won an award for the best of show at Hot August Nights in Reno for my 1963 Lincoln Continental for best unrestored chrome in a 1965 or older vehicle. Send me your e-mail address to wcprindible@ucdavis.edu and I will send you some pictures. My Lincoln is exactly the same as yours in interior colors etc. except that it is all original except for redoing the leather interior and repainting the car teal blue.
Bill Prindible (continued: It also has 253,000 miles on the original engine and runs like a top. I drove it over the mountains from Sacramento to reno for the show and it just cruised between 80 & 90 MPH. I too share your love of the car as my Dad had a dealership and we owned two of them which I grew up in at age 7 to 10 in Ohio. Hope you answer the e-mail so that we can compare pictures. My award from HAN says, And on the 8th day, God created CHROME.

Steve in Alaska: I had a '63 Lincoln years ago. White exterior, black leather interior. Drove it to Alaska in '76. Had to sell it in '88 for I could'nt maintain it up here. Sold it to a bunch of Hell's Angels, who said they owned 6 or 7 of the things. If I were living in So. Calif, where I lived before moving to Alaska, I'd have one today, and would have a blast maintaining it properly.

Rick: Some friends of my parents had a 1969 Lincoln Continental. Man I was like a kid in a space ship in that car...It was a wonderful car. Never will forget that ride, smooth as air. And the speedomoter on that model was like a thermometer and changed colors to show your speed. Thought it was the coolest thing ever. Did most of the Lincolns come with auto headlight dimmers or was that an option?
phnsoccer15@yahoo.com: I am looking at a 1963 continental hard-top just like this that needs a little less restoration then yours did. How much did it take to fully restore this vehicle.

matt mercer: Stu, thanks again for selling me the reverse lens! It's perfect! Matt
craig: Great story. I love hearing about these classics being resurrected. It's odd, thinking back in the 80's, you'd see 60's cars in various states of disrepair on the roads. Now most have given up the ghost - save for cases like this. Kudos

Mark Schnizer: I enjoyed your article in Lincoln and continental comments. Your story is similar to mine. I have loved 60's Lincolns since I was 10 (I'm now 43). I purchased a 63 Convertible In June of 99, sight unseen. I figured it would need some work but I wasn't prepared for the surprise when I saw the car. Nine years later with a wife and two kids and a lot less cash, I have a musuem piece, like yours. Mine is chestnut with a honey beige interior. jmjschnizer@fuse.net Cincinnati Ohio.
