60 Lincoln Premiere

Post by wimpy88 » Sat 4. Jan 2020, 11:53

Potential purchase if we can come to terms. In looking at specs according to Hagerty's valuation site, the 58 had 375 hp which was cut to 350 in 59 & to 315 in 60. What, if anything can be done to up the numbers on the 60? Are there simple fixes or did Lincoln do major changes to cut the HP?

Thanks for any input.

1960 had a two barrel carb. Not sure about the camshaft differences between 59 and 60 but the 58 went through changes in the first year. It is documented in the MEL Knowledge Base.

Hi wimpy,

I might be interested in a swap to add your numbers. I have a ‘60 Lincoln with a 4 barrel intake and it should have a 2 barrel. If you want to swap your 2 barrel intake for a 4 barrel i might want to swap with you to get my car 100% original!

Thanks, Ferdy
