It's great that you got the car over to Europe. We always are interested in seeing the car and we love learning about other owners!

Welcome aboard!

Welcome Holger!
Hearty congrats. I have no idea on how to ship a car overseas. Can you please give us some insight on how you did it? Thanks so much.

shipping the car to Europe is quite simple, there are some Car Import and Export Companies, for example CFRrinkens in Paramount, CA. They offer "door-to-door" car shipping.

Looks beautiful. Be very careful with the door. It looks as though the limiting strap as missing.

Welcome. Sure like the exterior and interior colors.

thank you, but I don't understand "Sure like the exterior and interior colors." could you explain it?

The Exterior colour isn't a Lincoln Colour, the original factory colour is "deep green". The interior colour seems to be right (1B6E), but the colour of the steering wheel is distinguished from the interior colour?!

Ideas?

Actually the deep green is a very nice color but I still like the color on your car. As for the steering wheel, mine looked much the same as yours and the interior of my car was light/dark blue. with those colors the steering wheel fades to that light green like yours, probably the shift knob and turn signal knob as well.

I meant that I like the interior and exterior color very much. Its very handsome.

I don't know much about Lincoln colors, but I'm pretty sure that the exterior is a Continental color, D-20 green iridescent acrylic lacquer.

Holger,

The last engine picture shows the automatic throttle control for when you you use the Air conditioner. It is vacuum operated and the vacuum connects to that tube shown in the picture, which is connected to the diaphragm. When the A/C is turned on, the valve is electrically opened and vacuum lifts the fork below and thus, steps up the engine idle to overcome the drag of running the compressor. If you have a shop manual, the vacuum diagram will show where the vacuum hose originates from and will illustrate how it operates.

Nick, Pat,

thank you for your posts, the informations might be very helpful.

It looks like the vacuum system has been majorly altered. There is supposed to be 2 valves on the heater supply pipes at the back of the engine (by the exhaust manifolds) currently there are 2 manual valves. Also the windshield wipers are supposed to be vacuum and they are electric- there is a Tee that feeds the AC idle valve from the supple for the wipers. I would imagine it was removed at the same time as the wipers and heater valves. The heater valves are available as they are used on 57 Thunderbirds - they cost about $80 each reproduction.

Hallo Holly!
This car looks very nice...many details are authentic and you can be satisfied with it. That color is one of my favorites.
You might want to buy an under hood cover from one of the suppliers on this Forum. I would also switch the star nut from the power steering reservoir with the wing nut on the air cleaner. Also, as a previous posting suggested, you need a door check strap which is important to prevent that heavy door from swinging open and denting the front fender....I've replaced all of mine. It's a chore to remove the door panel and kick panel though. This part is also available from our suppliers.

Joseph, Keith,

thanks for the information, you are right, the heater valves und the door check strap are already ordered and will hopefully arrive the next days.
