Nearly every part on this car is custom machined. chromed or polished. The underside is painted and is as clean as the topside; everything is finished. including the welds being sanded to smooth finish. Craftsmanship throughout is to the utmost highest level and is displayed with every component of this gorgeous Lincoln. Found stock in West Covina. a suburb of Los Angeles. This custom project started with new underpinnings (steering and suspension) and an updated engine while keeping much of the exterior stock. Development on the 126-inch wheelbase chassis began with the installation of a Kugel Komponents 4. 11:1 independent rear suspension system. The chassis had to be reworked out back to accept this rear end. and A-arms had to be fabricated for the front to complete the custom IFS setup. Click here for undercarriage photos Rack-and-pinion steering also went in. along with Wilwood disc brakes for each corner of the car. In keeping with the look of the original. 52-spoke. 17-inch. Tru-Spoke chrome wire spoke wheels were wrapped with a new set of white walls. The Mark IIs were originally equipped with the 368 Lincoln Y-block. which wasn’t enough for this project. so the stock engine was replaced with a Pro-built 427 FE from Robert Pond Motorsports. Robert Pond began casting his own version of the Ford FE engine block a number of years back and. from the outside. it looks original (except Pond's is all aluminum) but internally he improved on the design. Bored and stroked to 482 cubes. the big V-8 was assembled with a SCAT crank and rods. and uses a COMP Cams camshaft and CP pistons. The water pump and aluminum heads came from Edelbrock. and ignition is delivered via MSD controls. The headers and exhaust were made by Ronnie Koonce with polished stainless steel and were also custom fabricated for this Continental. For fuel delivery. it has a Dynatek classic fuel injection system with eight stacks feeding four Weber IDA-style throttle bodies. At about 4. 00 pounds a low-ratio gear was selected to complement the 4L80E transmission that was hooked up to the FE. The 482 produced 642 hp on the dyno before being installed. That's 482ci of big block FE performance! Robert Pond Motorsports assembled the all-aluminum motor with their aftermarket FE block. boring and stroking to get the required cubes. A SCAT crank and rods were used. with a set of aluminum Edelbrock heads and a Dynatek injection system (the IDAs are throttle bodies). The V8 is mated to a 4L80E transmission with an adaptor and shifts with a Compushift computer-controlled system from Phoenix Transmission in Weatherford. TX. The car's body has custom smooth floorplans. in addition. custom inner fender wells designed and fabricated to help conceal the car's wiring. (The custom fuel tank is also concealed along with its wiring and lines. ) Not cutting any corners the body was chemically stripped. the original joints re-leaded. then the body electro-plated before Dan Stacey and Brian Hatton completed the bodywork. Once done. Hatton sprayed the car using DuPont paint. Inside the car the master power brake cylinder and booster were hidden under the dash in order to clean up the clutter. And though power brakes were in 98 percent of the Mark IIs built in 1956. they didn't have what was added here: a power-activated emergency brake. A custom-built metal console (to accommodate the floor shift) and custom dash update the interior without making it look too "new. " Bucket seats from a Mark VIII Continental were covered in red leather by Sandra Gregory and Chuck Bennett and the same material was used on the dash. headliner. and custom rear buckets. Controls for the Hot Rod Air system are in the console just below the Kenwood head unit. and Classic Instrument gauges fit neatly in front of a Billet Specialties steering wheel. Power activated emergency brake. Power windows. including vent windows. power locks. and power brakes and steering. - no expense spared.
