Default 64 lincoln continental

Were restoring an 64 lincoln continental with the suicide doors.Its been sitting for 29 years behind a barn(not inside ) in Wichita falls Texas about 3 hours from my dads shop.After $5,000 of body work(which was a bargain considering the amount of work done)the car should probably run tomorrow.i put oil inside 2 days ago to let the motor lubricate and turned it over by hand.will post pics of the car before and now and vid of the motor running

What's the power source? Suicide doors... never been a fan of them. I have seen a couple trucks with Lambo doors, and thare kinda cool looking.

Good year. We've got a 64 sport fury that we're putting a stroked 440 in, can't freakin wait till we get the motor back..

The motor should be putting around 650 to the crank, that's what previous 440's with the same setup have made that were built by this guy.

Go all the way, and throw in a lunchbox locker. What does it have for rear-end? Something similar to the Ford 9inch? 430, thats pretty big!! Stroke it man!! lol, jk, sounds like the costs are high enough as it is...

Suicide doors aren't quite the same thing as the "Lambo doors".

Here's a classic '64 Continental with the rear suicide doors open:

Thats probably why he said he wasnt a fan of them, but said that he liked the lambo doors.

I've seen cars and trucks with those vertical door kits. It looks like a pain in the arse to get in and out with them doors flipped up like that.
