It was stored in the trash can. Did you know that lampblack was used in making ink and shoe polish?

What engine does this fit?

Years ago people used the soot off of kerosene lamps and candle lamps that collected on the flues to polish silver and gold especially plated. its just the soot left from the smoke! and some one marketed it years ago acetylene soot works great!

It fit the 430s and 410 too! same intake, So the 3 of us might be right. But that vacuum dash pot makes me think of the 400 horse 58 super Marauder

1959 Lincoln 430 3/2 intake

I was looking at my owners manuals on the 1959 Lincoln Premier and it was 400 HP not 390 like I said earlier I would love to post some pictures of some literature I have.This is on the Lincoln, Marauder, and also the T-Bird which also came with a J model 430 only if ordered or you worked for ford.

Well tell more of them damn it! Very cool! The only people who don't care about stories are youngsters who haven't any to tell.

The closest I have to a Lincoln Premere is the wheel cover from a 57 that my dad had on his 55 F100 back in the sixties. I have it on my garage wall.

1959 Lincoln ( probably a Premire judging from the color of the surround, but don't hold me to that).
