WHEN THE AUTOMOTIVE DESIGNERS “HIT ONE OUT OF THE PARK” IT ALWAYS BECOMES ICONIC …. 37 FORD ...57 CHEVY… THE TRI 5 NOMADS AND 32 THRU 34 FORDS….. WELL IN 1939 AND 40 THE ZEPHYR V12 COUPE WAS THE ONE TO OWN IF YOU COULD AFFORD IT ..THE CAR WAS INTRODUCED TO HELP BRIDGE THE PRICE CHASM BETWEEN THE “LINCOLN” AND THE FORD SO THE ZEPHYR WAS INTRODUCED TO FIT INTO THAT PRICE NICHE… THE RICH MANS FORD AND THE POOR MAN'S LINCOLN SO TO SPEAK……
THEY INTRODUCED THE FLATHEAD V12 AND IT WAS A HIT, “THE SMOOTHEST POWER PLANT AVAILABLE”, PLENTY OF POWER AND SMOOTH AS SILK……
STREET RODDERS HAVE ALWAYS PRIZED THE COUPES AND THE LINCOLN WAS NO DIFFERENT… IN THE SIXTIES THEY WERE PRIZED FOR THE FAT-FLATHEAD..
IN THE SEVENTIES WE BEGAN CUTTING THEM UP , CHOPPING TOPS AND CHANNELING….ANYTHING TO LOWER THE PROFILE AND MAKE IT LONGER AND SWOOPIER….. THE BEST “ASS” IN THE 40'S THEY USED TO SAY……... FAT FENDERS, GREAT ASS, AND A V12???? HOW COULD A MAN ASK FOR MORE………
THIS CAR REMINDS ME OF A GENTLEMAN'S HOT ROD RIGHT OUT OF THE SIXTIES ….. LARGE INVESTMENT… BEST OF EVERYTHING, RECEIPTS TO PROVE IT AND IMMACULATE…..SOMEBODY LOVED THIS CAR AND IT SHOWS EVERYWHERE……….. PRICED ON THE MONEY.
