    The Ina Mae Overman 1952 Lincoln Capri has found its way to a new owner, and will undergo a complete restoration to the later Gold version by the very skilled team at Manns Restorations. Manns recently completed the full restoration on the Sam Barris 1950 Buick for Kurt McCormick, and are currently also working on his Barris Dick Fowler 1938 Ford Custom.

    And now they will have to work on the old Valley Custom Lincoln. Great News.

     

    More info on the Ina Mae Overman Lincoln can be found in the 3-Part Article we did here on the CCC a while back.

    Looks to be in good condition, should be an easy custom restoration.

    Manns Restorations shared some photos of the Lincoln after it had arrived at the shop. Looking forward to see the shop get started on the project. It does look to be in pretty good shape overall.

    I always loved this car. One of the few from that “later” era.

    The first and last time I saw that wonderful Lincoln was at the ”Hunnert Mile Pile Up”   in Morris Ill. I knew it was something special. It’s in good hand at Mann’s.

    This fascinating car represents to me the very essence of that transition period of traditional custom car building that  would find itself relegated to the dust bins by the advent of the Detroit muscle car, and its availability to the young at prices and credit offerings that couldn’t be denied.

    What might have been the future for Valley Custom and others who had to seek other means for financial survival as the curtain for the traditional custom car era came down?  We have been blest to see what Gene Winfield and Bill Cushenbery were able to do, but…

    Lots to look at in the Ina Mae Overman Lincoln, and to imagine the directions customizing might have taken.
