I don't know that anyone can afford it! Very nice. Looks like you need 2 more carb pads. Have John Bunetic build you linkages.

Buddy do you have contact information for the linkage? I posted photos of my car on the Lincoln Forum. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

Those rims are not my thing, but the rest looks great. Looks almost identically to my T-Bird's maroon paint. Very nice.
Best regards

This info is from the Ford 6V carburetion site. The Lincoln looks great. Big wheels are nice when they are simple and classy like the car itself. I do not like the bling bling flashy rims so good job! The more smooth chrome surfaces the marrier! Good luck

Did you buy the finned valve covers? That would be a nice touch!

Thanks for the comments and information. I went with Super Marauder valve covers, I almost order the Moon covers just because. I am going to have the inside of the fins painted the same colour as the car. Now to get the intake done, shipped back to me and see if it will actually fit, I don't have the heart to modify the hood. Fingers crossed.

You can do the match yourself. Place a strong board that will not sag much from the cowl to the center of the front header panel (behind the hood ornament) and that should be your hood line. Measure how thick the inner hood panel is approx and drop that from the hoodline...Measure the height with air cleaner from the carb base height or anything for that matter that is located near the intake and carbs (e.g. I used the intake port since they are the same on the regular intake and the SM intake) and measure up to the top of air cleaner. I did this before I bought my intake and it worked. I can still close the hood with the air cleaner on. You used the lowest profile carbs out there but I do believe the 65 and earlier had a lower hood line than the 66 and up but who knows. I would use a 2" air cleaner so it gets enough air. Good luck. It will be very tight if it does fit! There are some mods to the hood you can do without ruining the 'lines' on that nice hood! If you need a visual let me know but I am thinking of putting an air scoop like the '53 Packard Caribbeans had.

Photos of the install to follow. I just hope I get the intake back this month. I should have mocked the set up first but to be honest I didn't think I would find a SM intake. This entire build has been about putting the cart befroe the horse. I was thinking that I could possibly have the intake milled if it's really close.

Mill a hood instead! Keep the intake!

Was at a swap meet in Sacramento on Sunday. I found a six duce manifold that was polished and a tri power manifold.
I bought the six duce and have the phone number for guy with the tri power set up. Be happy to forward it. TJR
