  1. Hi Keith, I'm almost finished with the Columbia axle installation in my1941 Continental. Your overdrive knob is a perfect fit, Thanks! It makes the old original knobs look exactly "old and original"!
  2. In my view, this would be the ultimate 1956 Lincoln Sedan. These photos were taken at the LCOC Lone Star Regional meet in Salado, Texas, April 2011. What appears to be a very nice 1956 Lincoln sedan is sitting on a late model Town Car chassis! The best of both worlds..... Full photos of that meet can ve viewed at: Salado, Texas, April 16, 2011 pictures from car shows photos on webshots<O:p></O:p>
  3. I never met Warner Baines. I understand that he creatively added A/C to his 41(?) Continental sometime in the 70's. At that time we lived in the land of fruits and nuts (and flakes). Now that we live in Texas, I understand why he did that! Given the V12 propensity for overheating, our Continental stays in the barn most of the summer. It has no heater so it stays there for much of the winter too! It has no overdrive, so it doesn't compete with the crazy Texas freeway traffic at ANY time. It's a TIRED, OLD original car with 84,000 miles on it so it doesn't get out very much! BUT - I'm working
  4. 1940 and 1941 Continentals are very similar in appearance but VERY different mechanically. I'm sure there are other differences between 1940 and 1941 Lincolns, but this is a start. ONLY 1941 Lincolns have 16x5 inch wheels. Previous years are 16x4 inches. Later years are 15x5 inches. This makes 1941 Lincoln wheels unique, desirable, and VERY expensive. 1941 Lincolns have a 2 1/2 inch wider tread and heavier suspension components. In effect, a sturdier post-war chassis while retaining the classic pre-war styling - the best of both worlds! 1941 Lincolns have stouter front and rear bumpers than 19
