Those are really sweet. The original "Back To The Future" cars.
I stumbled across the 36 Ford several months back on the net, I don't recall there being any mention of the T-Birds or the Lincoln.

What would be the price if some model were routinely built with stainless steel body and exhaust system?

I'd rather have something durable than more plastic cup-holders, more dvd players, more padding in the door panels, bigger alternators -- in short, a longer lasting, lower maintenance car rather than a fashion statement or a car turned into a living room entertainment center.

(Gimme the '36. They can keep its ugly younger sisters!)

I don't know why this story is just coming back out now.......Heard about these cars when I was a kid. The trouble with them was that they were on a regular steel frame which eventually rotted out. I wonder if the frame has been replaced in this one. I wonder where the "T" birds (58 I think) and Lincoln are?

Along with the pics I have that was sent by friends, this is part of the story that went with it:





It was featured in a local

parade with over 100 of our salaried, hourly and retired employees walking alongside.

This is 1 of only 4 in existence and is the only one currently in running & in road worthy condition.

The car is in exceptional condition, with the interior and even the frame looking great.

All 4 cars each had over 200,000 miles on them before they removed them from service.

These cars were built for Allegheny as promotional and marketing projects.

The top salesmen each year were given the honor of being able to drive them for one year.

The v-8 engine (max 85 hp) ran like a sewing machine and WA S surprisingly smooth and quite.

I thought this was a much better looking automobile than the Ford Thunderbird that visited us last year.

FYI, the car was insured (we were told) for the trip to Louisville via covered trailer for 1.5 million dollars.

People were told that the dies were ruined by stamping the stainless car parts,

making these the last of these cars ever produced.
