  1. Is this an NOS grill? What price range are you thinking about? Please send pictures to my email: galaxiedave@live.com.
  2. I won't be buying any car in six figures! I just passed on a couple of other opportunities since they did not meet my expectations and this car looks very nice if it can be purchased for a fair price. How do I contact Jerry E. to get the info on overall dimensions of the car? Thanks for your help.
  3. I'd like to get the overall body dimensions (length, width, height) of a 1939 Zephyr convertible coupe. I need to know for garage storage purposes (is there enough room with everything else!). Height should be with the top up. I'd appreciate any help you can provide. Thanks
  4. I appreciate the feedback. I'm planning to pick up the car this weekend! David
  5. I am looking to purchase a fully restored 1963 Ford Galaxie 500XL convertible. The car is beautiful, near-concours quality but the current engine - 390 Thunderbird does not match the VIN code "C" which indicates this car originally came with the base 289 V8 engine. After some reseach, I am convinced the conversion was done correctly, including suspension parts, etc. My question is how much should the fair market value be reduced for the non-matching engine in this car? I not sure in this vintage vehicle how important matching numbers for judging and pricing purposes. Any help you can provide would be appreciated. Thanks
  6. Follow-up question about interior colors for '46-'48 Lincolns (not Continentals) is the dash and interior trim (window molding, etc.) colors. I have seen many different variantions from a dark woodgrain finish (on a '46) to maroon (matches steering wheel) to silver/grey to body color. Any guidance on the correct color for the dash and interior trim (especially for Convertible Coupes)? I'm thinking the '46 and early '47s may have been woodgrain and the later cars a solid color, either body color or complimentary color. Thanks again if anyone can help.
  7. Thanks so much for the reply. So I take it black leather was NOT an available option in the '48 convertible coupe. Also, I'm not familiar with the TWOTZ publication. Are the old issues available on-line? Thanks again.
  8. I appreciate Mssr. Bwatoe's help on getting original build sheets. I'll contact the Benson Research Center. Thanks so much.
  9. I would like to getting some information about the leather and top colors originally available from the factory on the '46-'48 LLincolns (not Continentals). I have seen many different combinations and am not sure if they are original. For example, I'm looking at a '48 Convertible Couple, burgandy exterior color. The leather upholstery is black and the top is tan in color. Is this a valid factory original color combination? I have seen the tan and blue leather uphostery in these cars enough to assume they are original colors but this is first black I've seen. Also, what carpeting colors were available in these cars and were they generic or keyed to the upholstery color? I am trying to stay with the orginal factory color options as closely as possible. Thanks
  10. Sorry I am unable to answer your question but am very interested in knowing how you are able to locate build sheets for post-war Lincolns? Thanks so much. David
