Most exhaust shops can hook you up with a dual-exhaust system.
When I was 10 years old I saw a picture of a 72 Lincoln Mark IV (yellow with brown top/interior) in a magazine in Brazil. I was shocked by the beauty and the vision changed my life: from that moment I became a car nut and decided to be a mechanical engineer. All because of that picture.
Now I finally can have my dream car in Brazil due to some relaxation in our (in) famous bureaucracy, but at very high price. I own too Mark IV, a 72 and a 73. The 72 is all original (including paintwork), white with brown interior/top and very low original mileage (70K), while the 73 need some carburetor work. I own also a 72 TBird (same body) and other Fords of the same period.
As the person that posted initially, I am too a son and a grandson of Ford fans, so Ford is in my genes...
Does that Lincoln have a toggle switch for the headlights? I brought a 1972 Lincoln to Germany from the USA in 1994. I sold it to a German couple about 1996-1997.
I loved that car. It was black on black with black interior. The chrome bumpers were a little scratched and the passenger side has been repaired. There was no chrome stripping along the passenger side of the vehicle due to damage done to that side of the car.
It would be nice to know she is still on the road. It was the only Lincoln I saw there during my six years in country. I drove that car to Sicily twice, Amsterdam numerous times and all over Germany.
Enjoy that car... she is a beauty.
Wondering if anyone had any suggestions for restoring the vinyl roof? It's in pretty good condition, as grandma kept it under a carport, but it is a little faded, and I'd like to bring it back.
Thanks in advance.
Years ago they used to make either a polish or wax that was for vinyl roofs. I don't know if you can get it any more, as they haven't made those for a long time.
I am the guy who opened the thread.
Thanks for all your comments and experience reports with your Mark IVs and big T-Birds!
After now 8 years and adding 20,000 miles to it, I still own the car, it runs fine, it is in nice, like-new condition and has seen its 40th birthday in 2012. It will surely also see its 50th in ten years down the road, because these cars were made fine.
