Found! Need Air Intake Hose for '79 Lincoln Continetal TC

Dealer has no clue and can't call the supplier or give me a number to call so I ordered the closest thing I could fine online. They are both for V8's and if not right I can return. It's actually for a Mustang but maybe I will get lucky.  Wish me luck!

In many cases, the original should have a FoMoCo part number cast into it, on a flat surface.  Like E7LL-_____-__ format.  With that, you could do an online part number search.  PartsVoice.com is a vintage parts vendor, purchasing "obsolete" OEM parts from the OEMs when they discontinue them and still have stock.  It will require a free registration, but with that part/stamp number, that'll get you started  There could be some later part number changes, but that first part number is the key.

 

NOW . . . it is highly possible the same part did fit the Mustang!  Advertising it as a Lincoln part would turn many off when it was what they needed.  Going the other way, a Mustang part that fits a Lincoln is more marketable.

 

Happy Holidays!

Please let us know if the part works.  I need the same thing for my 1977 Mercury, and have been looking without success trying to find a good one off a junkyard car.

 

By the way, given the age of your car, Lincoln dealers are useless.  I used to work on a friend's 1979 Mark V and tried my local Lincoln dealer at first as a parts source.  The dealer told me that Lincoln trashed all their parts records from 1979 and earlier, meaning that the dealer can't even look up a part unless its from 1980 or newer.

It looks right! I think I outsmarted the parts Gods. The openings are the same size.

Good luck on your eBay listing. I've noticed these model Linc's have been rising in price in the last few years. I had 3 Town Cars from the '70's back in the day. Very nice ride but they were too hard on gas for me.

 Happy New Years!!
