    A project car, but looks to be a nice project. When I had the time and the technical ability,...

    The catalogue describes the car as a Lincoln. I still wince when I hear/see this from a source who should know better or take the time to research the Continental history.

    A very nice project otherwise.

    You cannot blame Bonhams. Ford has so muddied the understanding of Continental that along with Imperial, both are just going to be associated with their respective parent marques. Ford doesn't care enough to ensure the history is correct. Its not a losing battle, its a lost battle outside our tiny minority.

    just sold for $28,600 (all incl.). If the car is really as described it seems to be a fair Price.

    I knew Dick Hopeman. The quality of his restorations was impeccable and his Pennsylvania Stone Barn was the envy of many car collectors.
