1951 Lincoln Baby Lido � Coupe � Driven 2,021 miles. My 1951
'Missing Linc'. Powered by a 1957 354' Chrysler Industrial Hemi and
a nice four speed automatic transmission. Truly I'm in love. But
it's time for it to find a new home. This incredible creation was
lovingly hand-built by the famous but now deceased Midwestern car
builder named Russell Porter. He was also known as 'Mr Metal'. This
car is like no other. Perhaps the closest resemblance is the
amazing Hirohata Mercury that sold not too long ago at Mecum
auctions for over $2 million dollars. It's an incredibly
comfortable ride with its Electric split bench seat. It has
electric windows, power steering, and power brakes. Has a nice
stereo with a backup camera. The ride is confident and comfortable.
It has more than enough power although it is not a screaming hot
rod. The Chrysler Hemi is a relatively loud engine with mechanical
noises. This is normal for this type of engine. There are so many
body modifications I wouldn't know where to start. The hood scoops
and the Mercury grill light up blue when the headlights are put on.
1953 Buick headlights. Flamethrowers which I've never used. Right
now the front seat is from a later model Lincoln Continental. I
have the original front seat. The comfort of the current seat is
outstanding. However it is not color matching the rest of the
interior. So this would need to be redone or leave it as is. Again
the original seat in white will be provided and you can see a
picture of it in the provided pictures. This is a once in a
lifetime opportunity to own something completely original and
unique with great investment potential. Please Note The Following
