My 1972 Lincoln Continental
Compliments of Anton Olafsson @ thelincolnforum.net
Hello my name is Anton and I live in Iceland.
This is my 1972 Coupe.
Thers my friends 1973 Town Car.
Wery littel 11:1 compression, hydrolic roller cam, 770 holly carb, edelbr. performer intake, msd 6plusdigital ignition, I took the heads and matchported them myself, in my christmas vacation I´m gonna put roller rockerarms in it.
In the rear-end there is 3,23:1 and a no-spin.
This is a 3year old video with the motor allmost stock
Yhee that would be nice
But now I´m taking the car into some overhauling,
This winter was ONLY going to take a look at the doors, some rustbubbles, fix them and paint it.
But you all now waht heppenns when you start tering apart.
This came from the driversdoor.
Althoug gas is expensive in Iceland there is handfull of Lincoln´s here.

Still fighting the rust.
I think they made 10.000 coupes per year in this bodystyle.
Still fighting the rust
The left overs
So I ordered from SMS, they sent me the rong carpet, but are gonna send me new
I also orderd a new vinyltop from the and it looks very nice.
I have been looking for 8years for a good rearbumper, finely i found og NOS bumper
Little bit dirt but buff off very nice
I´m also done with the driver side post.
Yes I´m talking of the rubber disks,
But do you know if I can get this klips?
Well got the chassi blasted
Wery bad original weldings
So I´m going to weld it all,
Yes every single weld
The frame is now being galvanised.
Yes the body is pretty rusted, but It will come to an end, also it depends on what you comper to. Here is my friends 1940 Lincoln Continental original owned by Edsel Bryant Ford. http://spjall.ba.is/index.php?topic=2583.msg13214#msg13214

In good company, with the frame from edsels Ford 1940 COntinental
So now the body is back in progress.
Well, LincolnLand are out of the trunk kit and don´t get it again so any ideas?
Some progress on the car.
Sent this to the states for re-chrome
Always more to blast and paint
But it´s always fun to but more fresh parts to the frame
Put it out to clean
up into the rotation .
Great to work on it now.
Aluminium roll cage...
LOL, just put it inside for the pic, this is the rollcage I was welding for my friends Ford Ranger,
Hello, body finally rust free, will post pics later,
But now I need new bodymounts so do anybody know where I can buy body mount kit??
Got my marti report.
The frame ready
No luck with the bodymounts If I don´t find them I will have to rebuild the oldones,.. the steel on them are rusted...
The bags in the back are I think a dealer install, so I put them back in. When I took them out and washed I found a FoMoCo stamp and a partnumber starting with C8 something. Wil try to find the pics of the bags and put them here.
Here are the clean and back in.
