Barn finds (from Jack Palance's barn!) part 2

Recommended Posts





^^^ This '42 Continental was my favorite car there. If I ever tackled the Pyro kit again, I'd convert it to this one - that grille is much cleaner than the '48. Note the dual carbs and exhausts (Google "1942 Continental Palance" for better views of the engine). I begged my boss to buy this; it went for around $15 grand (it's now at a dealer in the same condition with a $42,995 price tag), but he already had a '47 Continental coupe.

Instead, he bought this:




'52 Rolls Royce Silver Wraith SWB Park Ward saloon. Runs but needs a valve job and the clutch rebuilt; bigger problem: the missing fender skirts are going to have to be built from scratch, probably. Even if a set turned up (ha ha) they might not fit considering they were mostly handbuilt and hand-fitted. Hey, I told him to buy the Lincoln... Nice lines, though, especially the rear end - looks a lot less stodgy than the coachbuilt Wraiths.
