This is my great uncle dressed for a parade as Abe Lincoln . I can only guess the year was in maybe 30's to 40's by car . As no one put year on photo .
Since the Movie was out now Abe Lincoln I thought I would share this photo :-) He made a good impression of him on photo . The suit appears to be old and a few moth holes in it I suspect it is an original suit for the style of it .

    great photo! I'm guessing the car is a 1940 Ford Deluxe

    Mani, he really looks the part, simply amazing, thanks for sharing, LOVE it!! :-)
  17. TallCakes TallCakes, 2 years ago
    make that a 1939 Ford after closer look at the tail lights
  18. packrat-place packrat-place, 2 years ago
    I only see one door handle showing on the passenger side, that would make this car a two door sedan. The 1939-40 Fords had "suicide doors", a four door sedan would have two handles showing across from each other.

    I agree with TallCakes, this is a 1939 Ford. Very neat photo of your great uncle. Do you know if his beard is real?
  20. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    Thank you mmrmaj :-)
  21. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    Oh and yes I believe it was real beard

  34. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    Thank you toolate :-) lol no he didn't think he was really Abe and walk around like that everyday that I know of ? Of coarse who knows I never saw him as he was long gone when I came along in life .

    If you are still working on this, the car is a 1938.
    1940 had chevron shaped taillights, 1939 had these teardrop taillights but had a vertical trunk handle. 1938 had the horizontal trunk handle.
    That's as I remember it, could be some variations between standard and deluxe models.

    wow Thanks aztom ! I really appreciate your help on this :-))))))))) Many many thanks !
