    This car was built by Coachcraft and modified by Ford Motor Co. for Henry Ford II between 1946 and 1948, Originally it had the split hard top and split windshield. Ford Motor Co added the curved windshield and a power convertible top.  It is 1946 Continental sheet metal on the front clip, but the rear end has no external tire and used 1941 fenders.  The car is shorter than a Continental because it is built on a 46 Mercury frame.  Henry Ford II had a 49 Lincoln V8 engine with aluminum heads, Mallory ignition and dual carburetors installed instead of the V12.  My father was the third owner of the car and owned it from 1952 until about 1970.  Original color was metallic emerald green but Ford had it painted Lincoln Yellow.  My father changed the color to metallic teal sometime in the 60s when he had it reupholstered.  The car is now on display in the Peterson Auto Museum In Los Angeles.

    From what i heard, Pastime was missing alot of parts when found in LA. The guy that has it now does real nice restoration work so it'll be just as nice as when Roger owned it. To bad no one did much with it other than drive it after Roger sold it. Glad to know it's still around.
