This forum does not receive a kickback of any kind from any of these places (we wish). We refer them because they consistently have the parts that we need. You may find people badmouthing one or another from time to time, but that can occur with any vendor. If anyone has any other reputable vendors to add to this list, please post in this thread. I will update as possible.

I have to add Rock Auto to this list. An invaluable resource for brake parts, pads, cylinders - master and slave, stoplamp switch, as well as most filters my 430 has needed. Everything I've ordered has been delivered almost instantly.

They send out discount codes as well (5%).

I was contacted by Rock Auto just yesterday and they are interested in giving the forum users a discount code to use all the time.

I have not heard back, but I am hoping to open a dialogue with them so that forum users get the best service possible.

Tim Nill

Postby Jed69conti » Fri Sep 22, 2006 12:33 pm

I just wanted to mention a new supplier of old Lincoln parts that I have had some really great experiences with, Tim Nill. He bought John Cashman's parts business and brought a large amount of his own parts from California. He has a great deal of nice, used Lincoln parts, the like of which have been sold off by the "usual suspects" many years ago. I purchased some beautiful original Teal interior parts for my 69 sedan, as well as a few other items, such as uncracked plastic centers for the non-Mark III 68-69 turbine wheel covers. These kind of pieces are nearly impossible to find anywhere and the prices were very reasonable. They were much nicer than he described, the packaging was excellent and Tim is very customer-service oriented, not to mention an encyclopedia of Lincoln information who is more than happy to share his knowledge with a novice, such as myself. His contact information is on the convertiblelincolns.com website.


Regards,

Jed

There is no mention of Jack Rosen at MarkII. If anyone is a suspect, usual or unusual, he seems like one. His web site is http://www.markii.com
