The biggest production car ever made just got customized!!!! The 1958 Lincoln your looking at has had a full transformation to current condition by Acme Rods Inc. a certified shop with over 17 years in the business.  Our goal was to retain the original class of this cutting edge for its time luxury automobile. while bringing it into the 21st century. To change the attitude of this monster all four corners had to go on air bags. the lower the better. So. no standard kit would do the job everything had to be made to order. how will i get replacement parts you ask. Well. nbsp;our engineering team already thought of that. we not only rebuilt all of the suspension components so that you will have years of trouble free service. we made sure that ever part of the suspension change over is a stocked item at any auto repair store. Every piece of the suspension front and rear is new. ball joints. suspension bushings. tie rod ends. shocks. steering idler arm. nbsp;and the steerring box has been rebuilt. For anyone that has ever had the pleasure of rebuilding a lincoln of this era before knows how much of an expense this can be and how hard it is to locate all these parts. all of this trouble has been done for you. Two compressors and twin five gallon tanks were mounted in the trunk along with the solenoid valves. Although these components usually fill a normal cars truck there is plenty of room for a full size spare and all the luggage you and your friends or family would ever need for a weekend retreat.

A car this big has to have a great braking system. the original system was not that at all. Every part of the drum braking system was removed. and four wheel disc brakes and a po wer booster replaced the antiquated original. all the hoses and lines were replaced or upgraded. New emergency brake cables were custom made. the entire system works flawlessly easily stops a 7000lbs plus car. All the original pedals and warning lights were retained and function exactly as they would have in 1958 when this car was brand new.

One thing has always been Paramount at Acme Rods Inc. . HORSEPOWER. This is the original numbers matching 430 Lincoln Maurder factory rated at 415hp. As we stated what a great starting point. we took this recently overhauled engine and made sure every nut bolt and spec was absolutely perfect. We installed a new timing chain. resealed every gasket or seal that even remotely looked like it had a leak or a drip. While it was a part we painted everything back to the original lincoln engine color. We installed a new water pump. thermostat. belts and hoses. recored the radiator and had it pressure tested. Also replaced was the points and condensor. why use out of date parts when you can use modern tecnology we asked and installed an electonic trigger from pertronix. New plugs. wires. cap. rotor. gone is the ballast resistor and a new 3ohm coil replaces it for years of trouble free service. The original carburater was beyond a satisfactory rebuild so a holley direct fit replacement was put on and an open element air cleaner that retains the orinal appearance. All new exhaust was ran from the freshly rebuilt manifolds to the rear bumper.  A custom h pipe was added and magnaflow mufflers with chrome turn downs were installed. The entire a/c system had been ravage by years of storage. so every part was replaced. new compressor. lines. dryer. and condensor. Older a/c systems ran r-12 and that is all but exist now so it was converted to r-134a any auto parts store sells 134a if the need to ever top the system off would arise. While we were at it the original heater cores were showing signs of weepage so we recored them both and installed all new hoses.

Another major hurdle with older lincons is the electrical system. making all power options work can be a major expense. We went through every system and all of them work perfectly now. All seven windows work. power vent windows. all four door windows and the rear window. The six way power seat functions perfectly and the power vent/ heat. ac switch cycles exactly as its supposed to. All the lighting system has been rebuilt and everything works from high beam low beams to the backup lamps are a never fail to operate system now.

The fuel system has been upgraded a new tank and pickup were installed along with a fuel filter which was not part of the original system. The interior is original except for the carpet which was repalced with an exact copy of the original. The exterior paint is original and it does show its age. but it works flawlessly with the look that the car gives of when the air ride is let down and the custom 17" black rock wheels are swallowed whole into the wheel wells.   New rubber was installed on the wheels and it is setup with a stagger from front to back. This has been an amazing project that we at Acme Rods Inc. have all enjoyed. but like all projects they come to an end and we move on to the next one. We named this one project Marilyn. Manson. happy bidding whoever wins this item will not be disappointed we can arrange shipping in the lower 48 for a fee all international shipppng is buyers responsibilty.
