1960 2 barrel intake wanted

Post by fhogeweg » Sat 10. Aug 2019, 14:51

Hi,

I'm looking for an original 1960 2 barrel to fit back on my Lincoln. It now has a 4 barrel, and is not correct for the 1960 model year.

Does anyone have a correct intake and willing to sell?

Thanks,
Ferdy

No.Do not have one at all.

Availability of Lincoln MEL parts is almost none.

Not many of them were made.

Seems like best thing to do is just leave it be.

If that intake is aftermarket aluminum it is a very rare part.

If it factory cast iron it is still in demand.

Hope this helps.

Comb through these classifieds. I had several I posted here for a few years. I scrapped them in May but there should still be a few around.

Hi Chris,

thanks for your reply. Do you mean I can find them on this forum right now, or maybe somewhere in de future on eBay or so? I just bought the original 2 barrel carb, so only the manifold is missing now to get my car 100% original.

I have been able to dig up old post and buy various pieces. I double checked and my 60 intake is gone. As far as I know there are three years of a MEL 2 barrel carb. 1960 - 1962. The 1960 is the only tall 2 barrel intake. 61-68 2 and 4 barrel intakes are squatted with dipped runners.

fhogeweg, Have you found a 1960 2 barrel intake? I'm sorry for replying to a 3 month old post. I tried sending a PM but it just sits in my outbox. Anyway, I have one.
