Re: '56/'57 Lincoln Continental Mk II

After seeing the original price of this car, in '56, I looked up the inflation rate today.



That makes the first year price, in today's money, $95,873. That puts in in the Mercedes "S" class...

Re: '56/'57 Lincoln Continental Mk II

I found this info on them.
http://www.classiccardatabase.com/specs.php?series=5255&year=1956&model=27119

The '56 was almost $10k and 2556 were made. They dropped the price to $8,800, for '57 but,...

Re: '56/'57 Lincoln Continental Mk II

They had a engine, that I always admired, the 368 Lincoln Y block, Fomoco's first OHV V8. 4 x 3.66 B&S (in '52 317 ci, 3.8x3.5), with a deck height of 10.94. More than 3/4" taller than the FE engine.

'56/'57 Lincoln Continental Mk II

One of my favorite cars, of all time. I never owned one but, when I was a mechanic (62-70) I got to work on and drive one.

The first 15 minutes of the video, are about how the car came to be.

Re: .Is this old "Y"block a 54 or 55 ? or what?

FYI, the easiest way to tell a original '54 engine, from any other year, is the spark plugs.

Only '54 Yblocks, had 14mm plugs. I've know this, since 1957, when my dad replaced the engine in our...

Re: WHO Is the Oldest Early V8 Forum Member?

Now I feel left out. I posted my age (76) on the 2nd page, I think but, not my first car.

It was my best friends car, I got it in '59 at 15, when he got a 50 Ford.

It was a '48 Merc, coupe....

Re: WHO Is the Oldest Early V8 Forum Member?

Boy, this is a fast thread!! 42 posts in 12 hours and I'm late to it.

I like this forum, because I love old Fords but, it also one of the few places makes me feel young at 76.

Re: The forgotten 1960 Fords

I think they are the best looking, of ALL the '60's Ford and all other domestic 60's cars.

Re: Harbor Freight changes

I also noticed that my latest magazine, that came just last week, doesn't have a coupon.

Anyone else seeing that?

Re: Home made tool that works really well.

I have to add my opinion, too.

A very good, well thought out idea.

Re: '54 FE conversion

Thanks Flathead.
Since the FE is longer, my guess is reversing them to move the engine forward and it looks like I have a advantage, having a 6 cylinder.

From the one picture I've seen, it...

Re: '54 FE conversion

Again, it's not my plan to leave the stock rear, in it. As I said, I have a 9" and 2.74's that will put me at 74 mph @ 2500 rpm, with 255 60 15's.

As a estimate, I would put the stock rear end at...

Re: '54 FE conversion

Thank you, I had joined that group, back in Nov, anticipating getting a '54 and posting about rear spring spacing, to put a '57 9" rear in one.

I just posted a new thread about my car, over there.

Re: How Close to (Over)Square In V-8 Bore/Stroke?

It wouldn't be to hard to test a square vs a under square combo. You could even test a over square but, the cranks would expensive.

The combo's would be:
3.202 x 3.750 = 241.58
3.375 x 3.375 =...

Re: '54 FE conversion

Sal, thanks for the input. I agree things should be close to the same to '57 maybe, even '59.
