Reduced/poor air flow across A/C condenser coils .. Have radiator fan clutch tested and A/C condenser coils cleaned. Possible charging system voltage low at idle .. Cooling system issue... Give Greg a call @ (714) 881-5867

Ty... Sorry couldnt figure out how to correct question. What I meant to say is I have a 1965 Loncoln continental it over heats when air is on and car is at idle. Do you know if this was an issue for Lincolns?

Fan clutch is suspect... Possible radiator is restricted internally... (That's a cool car though!)

I'll second 'Pushrods' suggestion to give Greg a call. No offense to him , but I believe (like myself and 'pushrod') he is old enough and knowledgeable to know about your car!Suicide doors-long time since I've seen one! Back in the '90s I had a customer with one , was a convertible-I got lucky enough to have to both get it running , and unlucky enough to have to mess with the top!!
