Perfect Car for A Wedding #4 - Lincoln Town Car Widebody Limousine

Going through my back catalogue for last months Indianapolis 500 blog series I came across this pair of photographs of a Lincoln Town Car Widebody Limousine that ferried my friends Rick and Karen from the church where they got married to the wedding reception in Toronto.

Lincoln Town Car

This Limo, based on the first generation ('81 - '89) Lincoln Town Car, a full size saloon, that was powered by 4.9 litre / 302 cui Windsor V8. The Town car came with an early digital trip computer and novel for the period keypad entry system.

I am not too sure which body manufacturer was responsible for this particular Widebody, if you know please chime in below, but it would appear that Larry 'JR' Hagman owned one.

I hope you will join me in sending best wishes to everyone getting married this week.

Thanks for looking in on today's two way stretch limo edition of 'Gettin a lil' psycho on tyres', I hope you will join me again tomorrow. Don't forget to come back now !
