Congrats to Jerry Forness, you are this week’s “Car of the Week” winner. Your “48 Ford Convertible is gorgeous. We captured some photos of this amazing car recently at the 2018 All Ford Car Show at Apple Ford in Shakopee MN. Jerry’s car is a one of a kind and is also known as a FLincoln! Part Ford and part Lincoln. It has “49” headlights, “49” tail lights, “48” push button door openers. The interior trim is fashioned after the “49” Lincoln Cosmopolitan. It has power windows and a power top. The custom chrome trimming down each side of the car adds a unique touch with a “40 Ford” bumper to accommodate the chrome side trim better.
Jerry bought the car from Steve’s Auto Restoration in Portland Oregon in 2012. The car was originally built for Steve’s business partner – Fred Reynolds. The car has won several awards over the time Jerry has owned it. Jerry said he bought the car mainly because he had one like it when he was in high school. This is truly a 1 of a kind car with a great story behind it. Thanks for sharing it with us!
