John, your Lincoln is Madison No 2 issued in 1988. It was made by SMTS
(Scale Model Technical Services) of the UK for Henk Van Asten's Fa. Daimler House of Holland. Henk was the originator of Conquest, Madison, and Light Duty Models. Many of his models continue to be issued and re-mastered in different body styles by Buz Kirkel's Route66modelcarstore.com.

Henk also did a convertible of this model which is quite similar to Brooklin Models' effort. As Ed mentions and I think you have offered photos of it before, Brooklin also made a 2dr hardtop.

In addition to the racy black on red number in your photos, Madison's sedan was available in a metallic brown body and cream top. I really liked these models too and devoted several pages to them in my first book, Ford in Miniature.

Also, I should mention the '57 4dr hardtop Madison No8 which was recently reissued by Buz with an improved level of detail. This car, of course bore some resemblance to the Batmobile and the Futura Dream car!
