This 1962 Lincoln Continental convertible Resto-Mod underwent a
full 4-year no-expense-spared build and restoration. Under the hood
is a new fuel-injected 6.2-liter LS3 V8 crate engine rated at
430hp. The engine is topped with a Holley Ultra Lo-Ram EFI intake
manifold that has less than 500 test miles, paired with a 4-speed
4L65E automatic transmission and Holley serpentine accessory drive.
The rear end has been replaced with a Dana 35 axle with 3.73 gears.
The gearbox was sent to ABS brakes in Orange, CA, for a complete
rebuild. Stopping power is provided by a hydroboost brake system
connected to a fully machined billet aluminum master cylinder from
Baer with disc brakes on all four corners. The car sits on a set of
Isotope 20-inch Kendall chrome wheels wrapped in Toyo Proxes
245/40/20 tires with a 1.25-inch whitewall. The custom exhaust is
composed of Varex mufflers with built-in electric cutout valves
that can be controlled by a smartphone app. The gas tank has been
replaced with an aluminum tank complete with Aeromotive intake pump
along with new fuel lines. The radiator has been upgraded to an
aluminum radiator. Inside the car, the custom bucket seats with
integrated shoulder seat belts are upholstered in Nappa Italian
leather. The dash is adorned by Dakota Digital black gauges with
white LED lighting. Air conditioning is provided by Vintage Air's
Magnum IV climate-control system. Custom door panels with custom
chrome trim and metal speaker grilles were made to house JL Audio
6.5-inch speakers in all four doors. An audio control DSP amplifier
provided power to the speakers and the JL Audio subwoofer. The
brains for the audio system comes from a Retrosound Bluetooth
radio. The entire floorboard of the car was sealed with POR15 and
then sound-deadened from front to back and layered with foam under
the synthetic black wool carpet. Additionally, the window motors
were replaced with modern Dorman window motors. Power door lock
actuators have been added and lock/unlock with a remote key fob.
During the build process, the car was taken down to bare metal (all
documented) to replace rust spots with new sheet metal. The factory
"pillowing" effect was removed from the edges of the doors to
achieve a straight appearance along the entire slab side. The doors
were removed in order to shoot the jams. The original rusted-out
decklid was replaced with a metal reinforced composite decklid
manufactured by Christian Paul Customs, which eliminates any future
rust. Finally, the car was sprayed with a Tesla Pearl White, while
the front suspension was removed and the control arms were
powder-coated. The tie rods, bushings and center link were
replaced. Metal trim has been chromed and polished. The convertible
top itself has been reupholstered with a black Robbins Haartz
Stayfast black canvas convertible top. The convertible top pump
(John Cashman), the four Rams and all hoses have been replaced with
1962 Lincoln Continental
