  1. John, The last I heard was that "Old Abe" ended up in New Zealand.... I got an email for a guy that bought it....I kinda miss it too, but something will come up... Thanks again, I remember that Jake did my dist. and Skip did my pumps... Good to see all of you fellas still talking about the good old V-12's
  2. Thanks Dee and V12, good to hear from you guys! Yes, Skip did mine on my old 39' I just forgot his name... Dee are you still tinkering with distributors and coils? If not, who would you recommend? Thanks again, I hope all is well with both of you!!
  3. Hey there fella's, its been a while since I have been on this site, but I wondered if anyone had the name of the guy that rebuilds water pumps.... he did both of mine on my 39 (that I no longer own) but I am helping a guy get his old V-12 up and running, also... the gentleman that does the coil and distributor... Dee, I don't know if you still mess with them?? Thanks, Jeff Mabry
  4. try a salvage yard... they can locate you one..
  5. He still looks great!! Good luck with "Old Abe"!! He is definately a runner!!
  6. hmmmmm... I used to own that Lincoln, how did you come across it?? If you want any info on it, contact me @ jmabry@woodhouse.com!! Actually it was found by me in a barn in Iowa...
  7. Use the hydraulic lifters... they are easily maintained, and with the quality oils that are out there they will last a very long time... plus they are very quiet!! Just my opinion. Jeff
  8. Chris Herrill does of Boos-Herrill... they are located in the LZOC vendors. Jeff
  9. I was just as surprised as you guys were, NEVER in a million years did I think those would go for that much... I put them on eBay w/o reserve because I had no idea what to ask for them. I figured if I was too high, no one would bite on them. Thanks guys. Dee always seems to help out a guy in need... he is a great asset to LZOC.. Jeff
  10. Mr. Higgins, I put those pumps on eBay w/o a reserve... You my friend mentioned 2 ignorant people. You are sadly mistaken on both accounts. If you don't know what you are talking about, please keep your comments to yourself. Thank you, Jeff Mabry Nebraska LZOC member
  11. Check with Merv Adkins in the vendor section of LZOC. That is where I found my parts for my heater. He is way less money than Chris Herrel.. Well worth the call....
  12. Does anyone know where to weld the brackets for the floor shifter on a column shift car, or where to cut the hole in the floor for the linkage? Do they make a boot to seal everything? Do I use a cable or linkage to connect to my powerglide? Any help would be appreciated. Jeff:confused:
  13. THANKS FOR ALL OF THE HELP AND SUPPORT FELLAS, IT SOLD THIS MORNING JEFF
  14. Thanks Jim.... Yes I agree, it is difficult for me to sell, but with a family to support, it is better than living off of the government!!! I will some day find another... Thanks again! Jeff
  15. Here are a few more pictures of "Old Abe" Thanks Guys!! Jeff
  16. Thanks Jim! I appreciate your thoughts! Jeff
  17. Thanks Phil.... Keep your ears open for someone who might be interested in "Old Abe" I'd appreciate it! Jeff
  18. Due to circumstances beyond my control, I am forced to sell my 1939 Lincoln Zephyr 4dr. sedan. It was a barn find and is pretty much original except for the rebuilt V-12 engine. It has original mileage of approximately 37,000 miles with a clear title. It, for its age and history is in great original shape. The paint and interior are original. There is no rust on this car. The floor pans were treated with Line-X. to help prevent any rusting of the floors. Feel free to email me @ jmabry@woodhouse.com if you have questions. I am asking a fair price of $12,500.00 I feel it is well worth the asking price. $6000.00 alone was spent on the fully rebuilt engine. I do have pictures listed under my profile of this car please take a look, and if interested I can provide more if necessary. Thanks, Jeff
  19. Thanks Keyser, I appreciate your kind words.... My kids and I put alot of time and energy into "old Abe". It is not what I really want to do, but times are tough:(
  20. Due to some issues beyond my control, I am going to be forced to sell my 1939 Lincoln Zephyr 4dr. Most of you on this site have helped me with many questions regarding this little beauty. I am asking $12,500 for it, which I think is a fair price. It has been gone over and is completely sound. It has a freshly rebuilt engine, new brakes, new clutch, NO rust on the body panels...original interior less the carpet, if anyone is interested, please feel free to email me at Jmabry@woodhouse.com I do have some pictures of it listed here in my profile. Thank you everyone for all of your help, this isn't really something I want to do, but I have no choice. There are more pictures listed on this thread.. Jeff
  21. Incredible!!! Frenchy that is most likely the best tribute I have ever seen before. What a great complement to those kids!! Good for you!! Merry Christmas my friend!!
  22. I use Amsoil 20-50 oil in my 39'... As hot as some of these Nebraska summers can be, it seem to hold up really well... Just my opinion. Merry Christmas!!!
  23. Frenchy, that is one sweet ride!!!! Good for you!!! Awesome detail!!!
