  1. ARGH... I just came across your REPLY. Thank you! I'll have to figure out how and if it's possible to turn on notifications
  2. Hello all, I'm hoping to find something that seems to be rarer than hen's teeth...a whole or part for the right cozy-wing or vent window. Much to my surprise (read: dismay) mine "fell apart" earlier this month on the way to our local Concours D'elegance. My car is a '40 Zephyr-Continental but I'm all but certain the vent window for the '40 Zephyr will be identical. And, I'd bet a 1941 part for either car would work too. Does anyone have this item? Can you point me elsewhere? Any and all input is invited! ....I'd even be willing to give someone a deposit to borrow and return the correct part to use a a template to have one fabricated 🙂
  3. Thanks John! The mention of a "rebuilt '48 Merc engine" confuses me - I thought the only V-12's were the '32-'42 L-head and the '36-'48 L-Z. Who knows...maybe it's been replaced between then and now. No worries, I'll get it sorted out one way or the other. That's the fun part of the journey! And I still went ahead and invested another $20 :eek: to get an official copy of the "build sheet" for the car's file.
  4. Hmmm. My Cab's VIN is HI00270. I guess it would be fun to determine when it was built. Can you point me in the right direction?
  5. RE: 1940 L-Z Continental Q1: Is there a VIN? If so, ...where is it located? Q2: Is the Body Number the VIN? Q3: How do you read/decode an L-Z Body Number? IE my car's body # is 06H.56.194 (it's a '40 cabriolet, 350 were produced)
  6. Hello all! I own a '40 Lincoln-Zephyr Continental Cabriolet and we're TRYING to figure out the best way to restore the interior hardware's gold (macoid) trim. I came across this post:http://forums.aaca.org/f128/gold-macoid-substitute-maybe-309784.html ...but was wondering if you all had any "other insights". Thanks!
