In 1948 the Ford Motor Co. presented baseball great Babe Ruth with a new Lincoln Continental two-door hardtop coupe to show their appreciation for his tireless devotion 
to Little Leaguers and the sport of baseball. It is believed to be the last car Ruth ever 
drove before he died of cancer in August of that year. 

Lonnie Shelton, a big Ruth and baseball fan from Pampa, Texas, recently acquired 
the car for an undisclosed amount. The “Yankee” blue colored car had been parked
the past 35 years in a couple of museums in Minnesota and Texas. The new owner
said it has 81,000 original miles on it.
