  1. New interior 327 engine Trany-2 speed power glide-automatic New wheel cylinders New power steering pump Radar Blue paint, base coat- clear coat 139,000 miles Please call Mike for details or to make an offer on the car, 304 754 9854 . Please do not email questions, phone calls only. Open to trades for a project convertible car only. No solicitors. Located in Martinsburg W. Virginia near Harpers Ferry. Restoration done by http://www.usmcd.com/MikeLombard/index.htm
  2. Thank you, Joey, I'll pass that on to Mike. - Scott Thanks, Bigugly, yes the other posters are correct. It's a unibody. I know I called it a "frame off" restoration, but technically we could not remove everything from the frame because of the uni body welded construction.
  3. I have a '65 mustang fastback. I need the SS trim that mounts to the roof rail trim above the door and holds the weatherstrip. I don't need the roof rail or the window glass trim. I need the middle piece which often gets destroyed during removal. And I need it for both the left and right sides from a 1965 or 1966. Those are the only years that will fit the '65. Please call Mike Lombard 304 754 9854

  5. Fair enough, Jim. I know this is an antique car forum, and not a custom car forum. Any variation from original specs is going to be a little bit heart breaking for the hardcore antique car enthusiast. If a potential buyer wants an exact reproduction steering wheel instead of a custom hand crafted, one-off, oak wood steering wheel, Mike will be happy to accommodate them. Same goes for an exact reproduction paint job, or exact reproduction upholstery. Mike will be happy to make those changes for a new owner. You will be happy to know that due to the input from this forum, Mike did (reluctantly) go with the 6V replacement battery.
  6. Thanks for the kudos! Right click and choose view image to see full size pic.
  7. Jim, you're exactly right. But Mike doesn't really need the money, so his need for artistic expression ended up trumping the dollars and the desire for 100% original authenticity on the cosmetics. I managed to get a few progress pics from Mike.
  8. Mike decided to do the steering wheel in wood ... pictured below in progress. Mike took the car to the Carlisle show this weekend. The response was awesome. He has promised me more pics soon.
  9. Thanks, John, I appreciate any constructive criticism. Some old timer has been bending his ear and has him sold on the 8V for better cranking power. I have been browsing the forum and 95% of posters agree with you. I think there was only one poster who said eight is great. I will pass your recommendation on to Mike. Of course now that the car is almost done, Mike is having second thoughts about selling it right away. - Scott
  10. At this point, Mike is starting to focus more on the electrical . The back of the radio was filled with crumbled insulation, so Mike is just going to use the face of the radio. He plans on using an 8 volt battery to power the electric instead of 6V. If anyone thinks that is not a good idea, please let us know. Thank you, Scott
  11. Ok, I finally got the new album up. Scroll down to the very bottom for the Lincoln albums. - Scott Mike Lombard's Home Page
  12. I spoke to Mike and now I see why John Murphy brought up the carb position. After measuring the piston diameters, we've determined that the whole engine is a '46 - '48, and it has 1946 stamped on the intake. The pistons still show the original honing marks. The grill and bumper have only been prepped for chroming, we still need to send them out. Mike chromed every little bolt and nut that was visible, himself. The really big stuff still has to be sent out. No bolt was untouched during this restoration. All rubber has been replaced. Mike even replaced the rear seal bearings which I understand was a real MFer as he had to press the bearings in through a 3 ft. long neck. We have a group of businessmen coming to look at the car today and I'm working on a new photo album for the web page. Here are a few teaser pics for now. - Scott P.S. We are still trying to find the complete ownership history of the car, Vin H120652 and body is 16H56263.
  13. New two year anniversary progress pics ... To see more pics, the full 2 Year Anniversary photo album is now posted on Mike Lombard's Home Page at the very bottom of the page.
  14. I formed the nailing strip for the convertible top out of oak wood that I soaked and bent into shape. It was not an easy task, but I am very happy with the results.
  15. WANTED: 4 balanced RIMS to fit a '41 Lincoln Continental. If you have one or more rims, and you have taken the time to make sure they are balanced, please contact me. Maybe balance is the wrong word, but I do need them straight and unbent. Thank you. Mike Lombard 304 754 9448
  16. I need 4 rims for my tires, now. If you have one or more, and they have the balance checked, please let me know. Maybe balance is the wrong word, but I do need them straight and unbent. Front seat upholstery is finished ... the odd creases are just from stuff that was leaning agaisnt the seats.
  17. We're still looking for this trim. And I wanted to mention that I made an error in the title as these are actually stainless steel trim. Mike will be attending the Hershey show in Oct., if meeting there is a help to anyone who possibly has the parts.
  18. Hi Tom, I passed your advice on to Mike. He says he couldn't find anyone local, but found a place in Arizona that will re core it for him. Mike plans to go to the Hershey show in Oct. and look around there too. Azscott, You're welcome! - Scott
  19. I need to recore the radiator for my cabriolet or find a reliable replacement. Any help or suggestions is appreciated. - Mike Lombard
  20. We need help with the radiator. We need someone to recore it, or we need to find a replacement. But we're a little leary about replacing it with another 70 year old radiator. Any suggestions???
  21. Hi Scott, I asked Mike and he said he buffed them out himself, and ordered new stickers from a speedometer shop. -Scott
  22. So I've been working hard trying to get all the chrome work finished and I've discovered I'm missing the L & R door rocker panel, long trim pieces. And the little 4 inch or so long, half horseshoe shaped trim pieces that go on the bottom front of the rear fenders. If you have any of those pieces for sale, please call Mike Lombard 304 754 9448 A couple more pics ...
  23. Thanks to one of our board members, I now have original rear seats. But now I've discovered I'm missing the L & R door rocker panel, long trim pieces. And the little 4 inch or so long, half horseshoe shaped trim pieces that go on the bottom front of the rear fenders. Please call Mike Lombard 304 754 9448
  24. Thanks to one of our board members, I now have original front seats and rear seats. Here's a couple of progress pics from the album posted on 7/10/12 ...
  25. Hi Ezdusit, Yes, it seems there is no other model with the exact same seat. And the odds of finding the correct seat are about zero. I believe I will have to get something close and modify it.
