Briefly about the project

Chuck came to us with the intention of converting his 1962 Continental to be fuel injected. While the vehicle was in for the conversion we also repaired the steering column, which had a shifting problem whenever the steering wheel was turned a certain direction. Our Classic Crew dropped the old fuel tank and installed a new custom one, as well as fabricated new fuel lines from the tank to the new Holley Sniper EFI four barrel system. We dialed in the computer to properly run and Chuck had himself a modern fuel system in his 1962 Lincoln Continental!
