Here are some picutres of my 59 430. The fuel and the vacuum line came from a 59 Lincoln, I believe the fuel to be correct, not so sure the vacuum is correct on the 430 Tbird. The Glass bowl Filter is a reproduction from a small bird vendor, a canister type was used on the 60 430 which may be safer than the glass one. My heater hoses aren't routed correctly, (moved one for the photo)there's a bracket I'd like to locate and Alexander has refered us to correct style heater hoses in another post, which will be installed this spring.

There is a Tbird registry, once you figure out the sort, the 430 convertibles appear at the end, think there were only about twenty registered. The site cannot accept any more, so my car for one is missing as so may be yours. The registry is only accurate for what has been listed, who knows what else lies out there to be discovered.
