Re: '64 Lincoln Continental with a '66 MEL 462

Theo, I meant the '61-'63 T-Birds. I thought bullet nosed Birds was their nickname in the same way that '61-'65 Continental enthusiasts call their cars 'slabside'.

Re: LPG conversion to a MEL 462

It has gone down to +/- $6.50 in The Netherlands. But prices will go up again.... :|

Re: '64 Lincoln Continental with a '66 MEL 462

Ah, I thought the bullet nosed Birds were equipped with a MEL motor. But you're right about setting strict rules about the purpose of this forum. The forum is looking good already. Keep up the good work. My interior is more beige than rose but the rose comes out in certain lights (or as in this phot...

Re: '64 Lincoln Continental with a '66 MEL 462

Thanks Theo. Most people associate this model with JFK. Even Dutch people do so which is surprising as it's a relatively unknown model here. On the front wind shield; I'm 99% sure it's unique to the '64 and '65 Continental. If it was interchangeable with the bullet nosed Birds I'm certain it would b...

Re: LPG conversion to a MEL 462

Theo, I meant it does just under 17 mpg at high way speed of 60 mph. In a residential area it drops to around 8.2 mpg.

Obviously, I drive like a little old lady. :roll:

LPG conversion to a MEL 462

After filling up my tank for the first I broke out in tears. Petrol is very expensive in The Netherlands. I decided to never fill up my tank again and to have car converted to run on LPG which costs a third of the price of regular petrol. LPG or Liquefied petroleum gas (also called LP Gas and autoga...

'64 Lincoln Continental with a '66 MEL 462

My name is Reijer, I'm from the Netherlands. My 1964 Continental is powered by a brand spanking new 1966 MEL 462. It's a nice cruiser. I use it during dry (and preferably sunny) weekends in the spring and summer. The car was imported from Fresno in early 2006. As a novice classic car mechanic I've s...

Re: My finished 462 rebuild project ('64 Continental)

Theo, my mass bombardment using precision photography resulted in total defeat. I again included 640X480 photos from photobucket but the forum software still says they're too big. :|
