I don't believe the trans is different. Everything I've read is that the drive train is right out of the Lincoln parts bin.

We know that a 460 and C-6 will fit as that's what WCF did to his personal car. He used the 365hp '69 Mark III engine and trans.

However, that being said, there's nothing wrong with the 285 hp 368, either.

Welcome to the forum!
And yes it is possible to do an engine swap but you will have to make a few custom parts along the way.:D

I put a modified 400ci in mine. As it is a little smaller and lighter then the 460.

Here is the thread where I describe how I did it.

Hi very nice job. I do not think I have the stamina for it. I can not find the s/n in the data base? Does any one have info on that. Thank you. Tony

Tony - Welcome to the Forum. The code you've given indicates your car was manufactured on Sept. 13, 1955, and was #11 of that day. Based on what seems to be the consensus, that would make your car number 216 of all Mark IIs made. Most of the cars that early in production were "introductory units" that were distributed to dealers to attract potential buyers--i.e. were not ordered by a specific customer. Check the "Continental" script plate on the transmission hump--if there is no name engraved below the Continental, that is further indication the car was not ordered for a specific individual. The paint code indicates that it was originally deep green. The interior had medium green biscuits with white bolsters and medium green welding. Good luck on your restoration. Post pictures as you go.

It's a typo, that's all. He got the database from my source. He just missed one. No big deal, really.

Tony, your profile shows that you still own 1202, however, my records show that you sold it on EBAY in February 2011 for $3,500. Could you please clarify that? Thanks, Pat
