I have a 1968 Continental with a 460, also. Been working like a dream, until just this week. did find that when the relays all click, battery good, and new cable, that I was ignorant of the fact that the early 68 production did not have a solenoid operated starter. It was a one piece motor. since the car is now sitting in a place I will have a very hard time pushing or jacking up to look at the starter, I will not be ordering the replacement until I am sure of the type starter.
I can help on most American passenger cars built between 1930 and 1970, and Imperials through 1983.
I have over 50 years experience in restoring and maintaining antique and classic cars, including 20 years operating a classic car repair shop. I am now retired, but I am willing to help with any questions of a technical or mechanical nature. I have more experience with Packard, Studebaker, Hudson, Imperial and other luxury makes, but I do have reference material and experience with most makes.
I do not know anything about modifying cars - if that is what you want to know about, pick someone else. I keep them the way the factory built them, and I advise you to do the same, to maintain the value of the car and also for your safety.
I can only handle mechanical or technical questions - I am not a body/paint expert!
