Air cleaner looks to be the correct white in the 2nd picture....

No chrome under the hood, all painted. There are two visual issues under, the fuel pump is a Lincoln, the discharge fitting is at 2 o'clock instead of 12, and the snorkle is from a Lincoln. The stove pipe beneath the snorkel is longer on the TBird than the Lincoln, this car has the short one.

I don't have good eng compartment pictures, these dark ones are all I have at the moment.

Hard to believe how quickly the seasons change, that car show seems like last week and now it's Carhart time walking the dogs.
