1965 Lincoln continental sedan 3 owner, Oregon car
The trunk is currently being re-designed to accommodate 4 Fosgate 10″ speakers with a different layout than pictured below.
Original 1965Fuel injected 1958 Mercury Super Marauder. Tunable by handheld in cab unit.
This is an Original 430 engine however, I was able to track down and install the :
1958 Mercury Super Marauder performance option. This was a one year only, less than 80 actual units made option in 1958 for the MEL engine.
The air cleaner alone was near $3000.00 and the valve covers were $600 (a couple air cleaner covers come up on eBay from time to time but are extremely difficult to obtain.)
It’s got the Mercury valve covers, exhaust manifold as well as the very sought after original aluminum two piece Air cleaner cover. (If not familiar, Google 1958 Super Marauder)
The intake manifold was an unused NOS cast out due to casting flaws back in 1957. There were tiny holes in the water jacket rendering it useless. When I purchased it, I had Portland Engine Rebuilders shine it up
Then Paul Johnson rebuilt the water jacket and ceramic coated the internals of it.
Radiator is a Champion Cooling Systems Radiator special built to fit a 1965 Lincoln. This allow for an expansion tank delete. The polished aluminum shroud was an upgrade option upon ordering as well as the high performance SPAL Duel fan set up.

All fuel lines have been converted to hard lines custom bent to accommodate a new aluminum custom gas tank built by Deviouse customs out of Riverside CA. A Hy-Fuel single pump in tank fuel pump was then installed into that tank.
There is an access panel in the trunk of the car to access the in tank fuel pump incase it needs any work done on it in the future.

The head lights are a one-off custom build. These were built for day and dusk shows and they do not function well for night driving even though they are fan cooled LED style, in order to achieve a clean center spot demon eye, a Focus shroud sits around the light which does not allow the light to disperse properly at night.
Each headlight has two halos as well as a demon eye, all of which are multi-color adjustable. Each led used to make the halos are addressable, meaning, they operate individually from each other. This allows them to be able to run pre-programmed or saves animations.
Like the headlights, the turn signals and driving lights are also custom one off’s with the same LED functions. They do function properly for road use.
Headlights, turn signals and driving lights can all function together for a “show mode.”
The halos and all other LED lights are powered by a phone app that utilizes the BlueGhozt Module and everything has been built and installed with new wiring harnesses

Tail lights are original but they have the Stinkin Lincoln light bar style driving light insert, this makes them look like they have a single bar of light along the bottom of each light.
The car badges, scrip, c-pillars and trunk all are back lit by:
Head unit is the kenwood excelon kdc-x496. This is tucked into the ashtray and does not affect the look of the dash.
The entire system is Rockford Fosgate with exception to a 6X9 HERTZ speaker in the dash that was just installed recently.
