Can we use this photo for a collage and add it to the revolving header? Good shot. Did you take it?
Best regards

Nope, it was featured in an online article... it also have big pistons, and a isky roller cam.

"The Lincoln engines were a breed apart. This '59 430-incher represents two decades of collecting rare parts by Billy Belmont of Massachusetts. These blocks were somewhere between a Y-block and an FE, and they were designated the "MEL" (Mercury, Edsel, Lincoln) series. Bill's features N.O.S. M/T pistons, an Isky cam, a Cirello mag, a Weiand front cover, and a very rare '58 Mercury Turnpike Cruiser Tri-power."
