The Lincoln Continental has been a part of some of the most impactful moments in American history and has also made its mark on film and television over the past several decades. Though it will soon depart the Lincoln lineup once again, there are plenty of great models to look back on. Take this beautiful 1973 Lincoln Continental Coupe, for example. It has all the panache we’d expect from an early 70s luxury barge, and it’s now headed to find a new owner at Mecum’s Dallas auctions in October.
This cream-white Continental has a 460 cubic-inch V8 under the hood and has only traveled 88,000 miles during tis 47-year lifespan. The original black leather interior looks to be in good shape and the car is equipped with several factory options, including air conditioning, power seats, and power windows. Even the details on this Continental are solid, like the working factory clock on the dash.
Project car builds don’t always go as planned, but sometimes they go so far off the rails that it’s hard to imagine them ever being completed. “Off the rails” might be an understatement for this 1966 Mustang project, which started life as a completely different car than the one you see here.
As explained by SoCal-based pony enthusiast named Gee, his first 1966 Ford Mustang burnt down in an electrical fire while in the shop for a tune up. That car was almost a total loss, with the only part that could be salvaged being the engine.
Since the ‘Stang was a project car, it wasn’t insured for damaged caused by “electrical fire in a garage.” Luckily, Gee was able to recover enough from the car to purchase a second 1966 Mustang Coupe and used the 347 cubic-inch Stroker engine from the scorched model to power it.
The Ford F-100 helped Ford establish its leadership position in the pickup truck segment. Though the F-100 was a very capable machine for its time, it wasn’t really anywhere close to being a lively performance vehicle. A company called QA1 is hoping to change that with a line of performance parts for the F-100 that have culminated with the test truck you see here.
