Very Rare 1941 Lincoln with a checkered past. When the previous owner went to title the car he was referred to the Massachusetts State Police where he found that in the cars past it had been stolen and the previous owner was Rita Hayworth and that Henry Ford had personally given the car to her. The original color was lavender because that was her favorite color. It was her east coast car. After that the title was cleared and purchase was completed. Current owner has had for 18 years. He found the gauges were not working and the original engine was in very bad shape. With that information he replaced all gauges with new reproduction gauges that are the same as original and rewired the entire car front to back. Also he replaced the engine with a rebuilt 1955 Oldsmobile Rocket 324ci, 202hp engine. Now the car starts and performs better than ever. The only other change is the 1956 Chrysler Imperial wire wheels. The only thing this car needs is new paint to be a real show car. Hopefully back to Lavender. The caris Solid as a rock and no bondo! Runs and drives very well.
