  1. Been there, Done that! The for sale sign is is still laying on the floor in the back seat.

    Once I got it running smoothly, all thoughts of selling went out of my mind!!!!!!!! Or is it, I'm finally out of my mind? Whichever, I sure do enjoy the option to roll down the windows, open the cowl vent and drive the back roads on a warm day!:rolleyes:


  2. Ok; a spare coil is one thing to have as a spare in case of break down. I got mine from a guy in AZ that said he had a few of them ranging from $100-200. I also carry a voltage regulator, spark plugs and have on order points and carbon brushes.

    What other items are suggested for the emergency kit?

  3. Got my coil back from Skip Haney today, fantastic differnce in the way the Zypher runs with it rebuilt and a couple new condensers from Boos-Herrel. Both outfits were excelent to deal with and had great turn around time, 3 days on the condensers and 2 weeks to the day on the coil! It's amazing what a blue spark does over the yellow it was when I was having problems.

    I'm still looking for a spare coil if anyone has an extra you will part with.

  4. Lincoln had 3 wood grain colors for for the 1941; Beech, Silver Birch and Mahogany. You could order the one you prefered for your car. You need the build sheet for your car from the Benson Research Center of the Henry Ford Museum to determine which one was ordered with the vehicle. If none is listed on the sheet, then it came with the standard grain which was Beech.

  5. Here are photos of my 41 Sedans "Silver Birch" woodgraining, it was done in the late 70's before I owned the car. The yellow you see is from the florescent lights in the garage. The graining is silver gray in color without any yellowing. A possible cause for yellowing could be a coat of varnish over the graining to protect it.

    I hope this helps.

  7. BTW - Have you been having trouble getting the blue icon to show you have read the fourm? I am, I click twice and end up back in the fourm! But the button never resets! Iback out and try again! and still no luck.

  8. Phil:

    Yes, I had problems at the change over. My password would not work at all. I finally sent twice for a new pass word and got in. Then changed the new one for my original password and have not had a problem since. Is'nt technology wonderful, soooooooo reliable!

    PS: I'm only senior in age!

  9. Well DARN! Was hoping to get my 41 Z all spiffed up and those bad spot hidden! I figured you could get a production line going with the rollers, kinda like a drive thru car wash! 60 second paint jobs!

    Color is great and gives me a good idea what mine looked like when it came off the line. My vote is acrylic enamel all the way BTW: Will that get a clear coat over it also?

  10. Great photo! My Dad worked for Foster and Kleiser as a posting supervisor in Watsonville and San Jose, CA. Looks like this one was taken in the S.F. Bay Area due to the small ad that is placed on the sign. As a kid I cut lawns at sign boards and folded paper for many signs in the 50's and early 60's. When the new car signs came out we would lay them out on the garage floor and get a preview of what the new models were going to look like before the signs were ever posted.

  11. Replaced mine last year with one made by Vintiques. I think Saco Vint Ford sells that brand. Had no problems what so ever with it. I've delt with Saco Vint Ford and have always been satisfied.
