  1. There are glass companies that will make glass panels for most vehicles with the proper Ford script on them. A few years ago I replaced the door and wing windows on my '41 Coupe. Old glass tends to haze and the plastic inside deteriorates. Not sure where i got them, but it was back east. Google antique auto glass and you'll find them and be a lot happier than using old glass from vehicles or even NOS as time isn't kind to these things!
  2. Properly setup and proper parts installed, these cars will give good service as they did in their day. New wiring, good ground bonds, proper ignition setup will insure good running and driving. In my own case I replaced the entire wiring looms with new ones from Rhode Island Wiring, Optima battery/cover, new 6 volt alternator to replace the old generator that looks the same, rebuilt coil by Skip Haney. The temptation to upgrade everything to today's technology sorta defeats the whole purpose of the restoration of these great automobiles. The last thing we want is to turn them into a 'ratrod'! I did rebuild the radio with new electronics, but it's in an original housing and looks the same yet gives better AM/FM performance, all on 6 volts! Sometimes a little camouflage doesn't hurt and accomplishes a lot!
  3. Yes, lots of fun! I had to use some heavy duty clamps on all the radiator hoses on my '41 Zephyr to keep them from leaking. There's a lot of pressure from the dual water pumps and the baffles behind them to push coolant to the rear of the engine for better cooling to overcome some design issues with the big V12's!
  4. Here's a link on eBay that currently has some of these parts for sale. Good Luck!
  5. Always sad to see what the hot rod industry does to classic vehicles making them literally pile of scrap metal in time as no one wants the results of misguided egos totally mis-engineered beyond reality!
  6. There are 'new' replica radios on the market that might be a better solution. Old ones are out there, but these are great too with a lot of power and modern circuits. Good luck!

  7. If you are able to restore this car, you need to consider the value when it's restored as the parts and time to do it will exceed the value you create. With floors rusted out and other sheet metal parts, much of it will have to be customized and welded into place. If the frame is rusted out that will be a big expense. Sometimes you can find another one similar and take parts to repair/replace the ones you will need. Engine...transmission....rear end....all expensive to replace. Coupes and convertibles are the ones in demand for these vehicles, sedans not much in most of the years from 1936-1948. It would be a beautiful car if you can restore it finding all the missing pieces. Good luck with it!
  8. This isn't my vehicle, just noticed it on eBay and wanted others to see if if someone is interested in such a vehicle. It is rare and beautiful. Big problem for all these vehicles is the prices have dropped in recent years, so we just hold on to them till the market goes back up if we're interested in selling later. It would be nice in the museum, don't know if the owner would donate it...seems like they want to sell it. We'll watch what happens!
  9. The steering lock is operated by the ignition and there's a 'cam' that comes out of the lock mechanism and engages the steering shaft that has an index to lock the steering wheel when the key is off and removed. If the lock is engaged the steering wheel will move slightly either direction until the indent in the shaft lines up with the locking cam, the the wheel is locked and can't be turned. If this isn't working on your car it might be in the mechanism which you can remove and check it out. There is the ignition switch on top of the locking mechanism which is operated by the key in order to start the car and power the gauges. I found it was easier to work on this part with the speedometer removed, but that's a big job too, so you can remove the mechanism without removing the instrument cluster. Do this with the battery disconnected! There are parts around to fix whatever is broken, but you'll need to remove it first to see what the problem is. With the ignition removed, you can work the lock and see if the cam is being deployed on the side of the unit when you operate the key. If that's OK you have to look in the side of the steering column and make sure the indent is lines up on the steering wheel shaft so you can engage the locking cam. Good Luck! Ray
  10. There's a new ad on ebay for a 1941 Lincoln Zephyr Coupe for sale. It starts out as $5000, but of course there's a reserve of what before it's sold. Looks in great shape, no OD and it's been converted to an 8 volt electrical system. Check it out!
  11. When you have torn down engines with boxes of parts, you have a problem. It will take a good mechanic that understands these engines and perhaps you might get one engine out of the whole thing. Tremendous work and probably most of the engine parts are worn out too. It would take a machine shop miracle to resurrect them. Good luck!

  13. The auction ended, but I don't think there were any buyers at that price.
  14. Of course you question every part on eBay as they taut all things from a Model T rear end to a Mack truck part will fit your Lincoln. I used to send them notes to correct their assumptions, but I think it falls on deaf ears. It's strictly buyer be aware!
  15. Noticed on eBay today (3-18-17) there's a restored 41 Continental for sale supposedly that belonged to Rita Hayworth given her by Orson Wells in the day. They're asking $120,000 for it! Nice looking but the price seems high. Nice to look at, not sure of the price. It's a California car. FYI!
  16. I'll take a pix and send it soon!!!
  17. The "serial' number now referred to as "VIN" number is usually stamped on the top of the frame under the hood on the driver's side close to the radiator. That's where my '41 Zephyr is, and the stamping is pretty deep and should be visible. There could be a bunch of paint covering it, so look carefully and you might have to scrape some paint to read it. Those body plates on the firewall are not the ID number. Also on top of the bell housing if you remove the floor cover it should be stamped and it should match the frame number unless it's been changed from another vehicle.
  18. Leaving the ignition on without running the engine can cause the points to burn or weld together. Jake does a good job, but he only cleans up the coils and replaces the tar resin with a silicon compound. Over time the varnish on the copper windings is compromised and you can get shorted turns that can leave the coil putting out a lower voltage to the spark plugs. This voltage can run some 15,000-20,000 volts to fire the plugs. Low firing voltages can foul the plug with carbon. I believe new copper windings that Skip installs are the best to renew the ignition. The V12s need all the power they can get to run properly. Jake does a great job calibrating the distributors on his scope setup.
  19. Coils can vary over time as there can be some shorted turns that still allow the coils to work. Remember in these coils there are 2 different coils for the firing of the engine. (Like 2-6 cylinder engines. And when Skip Haney rebuilds them down in Florida he uses new Ford coil windings to make the coils fresh and higher voltage. The old coils over time do deteriorate with the tar used to insulate the inside of the housing. It would be better if you had him put fresh coils in your unit so you get higher voltage to run the engine. Also new capacitors are very important to the firing of the ignition also. They deteriorate over time also and need replacing.
  20. Compression should be above 100 in these engines. 50 or so is low, so you'll burn oil and not have good power. Rebuilding the engine is the only real choice. Probably the valves might need replacing or regrinding. It's a lot of work to just getting it out of the car, so a complete rebuild including a new oil pump is necessary. And rebuilding some 10,000 miles ago is suspicious that it must not have been a proper one. Earle Brown has those parts. You need to look around for a shop capable and knowledgeable to get it rebuilt and machined properly. Good Luck!
  21. I got an email recently from Vintage Auto showing 6 or 12 volt radiator fans for virtually any vehicle. It's usually a problem when idling or driving slow like in a parade. And removing thermostats from the top hoses in warm weather can help. Those brass deflectors help if you can find them. We will always wonder what a little more real engineering might have been done to improve the V12s!
  22. BoosHarrel or Vintage Auto Warehouse...maybe Merv Atkins out in Pomona, Ca. might have one. Hard to fabricate one without a sample. Good Luck! And make the body shop pay for it!
  23. There is currently a new pair of aluminum heads on eBay for $3200. Just put 1941 Lincoln Zephyr in the search box. They should fit most V12s. The owner keeps listing them, probably a bit high priced.
  24. The only way you will get proper service and operation out of your '38 is to rebuild the motor. It's not cheap, but patching it up won't result in what you expect either. It needs 'hot tanking' for the engine block and rebuild all the way with new parts like rings and valves (might grind the old ones) along with any bad heads or intake manifolds that includes exhaust manifolds. It looks like it's been sitting for a long time and never properly cared for along the way. All the sludge buildup is a sign of poor maintenance and engine wear. An improved oil pump should also be installed. Boos Harell, Vintage Auto Warehouse (Alan Whelihan), and others have these parts along with eBay . It's always buyer beware when buying on line from individuals as to the condition of used parts. Heads and manifolds can be resurfaced at auto machine shops and reinstalled with new gaskets that are available. But the engine block needs serious rebuilding if you expect the engine to run properly and reliably. And on the mainland there are companies that will do the rebuilding for you. The transmission probably has issued too! Good Luck!.
