Found! Lost 1954 Lincoln Mardi Gras show car

The 1954 Lincoln Mardi Gras show car was allowed to significantly weather after it was purchased from the original owner’s estate, even though it would have been considered a collector car by the time of her death.

Danny Gove set out to assess a muscle car, and ended up coming home with a long-missing, one-of-a kind Lincoln show car from the 1950s.

“I was called over to a gentleman’s house to do an evaluation of what he thought was a Moulin Rouge ’Cuda, and I went over there to confirm or deny whether it was a Moulin Rouge car — and he had the unfortunate news that it was not — but he said, ‘Before you go, I would like to show you one more thing.’ He took me to a back barn and there it sat.”
