    I totally agree with Jeff - My first year driving my 41 Cabriolet , I used 4 quarts of oil on a 400 mile trip , with windows open and top down. I tried a side breather tube to no avail . Then total rebuild with new aluminum pistons , rings , valves and seals . It took me 5+ years to rebuild it myself, but now do not use a drop of oil , nor do I have any blowby into the passenger compartment. GREAT engine if you maintain it and CHANGE THE OIL. Also do use MMO in the gas to quiet lifters. After 5,000 miles it still is great. Mike

    VERY NICE - Where do you dig up this stuff ? Mike GO BADGERS

  5. 1940 Continental at auction

    It definitely is a REAL 1940 Continental Cabriolet. The body number plate is still there on the firewall, 06H-56-58. If you do a search on Cargo-King , it is a 1955 Heavy-duty Ford Truck engine.

    Okay - yes the grille is '41 and dash is ?? steering wheel and door handles are 1940 but no top fender lites that would be on a 41 AND what is a "cargo KING" ?
  7. I know that Dave Cole kept track of all '40 Continental Cabriolets - Don't know if he has this one as a survivor. From what I can see it is body #58 VERY ROUGH https://wisconsin.hibid.com/catalog/111235/car-collection-of-jack-slattery-saturday--nov--4---10am/?q=513 Mike Lynch

    Very Nice! I only had the time to drive ours once this summer.
  9. Tom - I have a 1990-91 Directory from the Lincoln & Continental Owners Club . In the section titled "Cars and Their Members" It lists by year and body style all members cars AND VIN Nos. I was never a member , and do not know if they still list them this way , but there are over 100 '41 Cabriolets listed at that time. Neither of our cars are in that list Mike VIN 112611 Body No 90

  11. Front to rear wiring harness 41 LC Cabrolet

    I do know that very little wiring is underneath the car ; the taillight/trunk wiring comes up into the trunk . I can take photos of my trunk wiring. I never could keep the trunk light bulb lit - there is a switch

    Tom - I have a LOT of pictures of my 41 restoration - Here a a few from two years ago when I removed , rebuilt and replaced the engine. I'll have to dig for the restoration pics , as they were taken in the late '80's before digital. Mike Lynch
  14. gas tank vacuum

    2 Years ago , I had to drop the tank on my '41 Continental to clean out the tank. I also replaced the sender gasket. On my first test drive . the car kept stalling out. It was when I loosened the (aftermarket ) gas cap that I felt the vacuum created from a sealed system. After I drilled a tiny vent hole in the cap all was well.
