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 MANS LINCOLN SO TO SPEAK...... <br /> THEY INTRODUCED THE FLATHEAD V12 AND IT WAS A HITand#44; THE SMOOTHEST POWER PLANT AVAILABLEand#44; PLENTY OF POWER AND SMOOTH AS SILK......<br /> STREET RODDERS HAVE ALWAYS PRIZED THE COUPES AND THE LINCOLN WAS NO DIFFERENT... IN THE SIXTIES THEY WERE PRIZED FOR THE FAT-FLATHEAD.. <br /> IN THE SEVENTIES WE BEGAN CUTTING THEM UP and#44; CHOPPING TOPS AND CHANNELING....ANYTHING TO LOWER THE PROFILE AND MAKE IT LONGER AND SWOOPIER..... THE BEST ASS IN THE 40S THEY USED TO SAY......... FAT FENDERSand#44; GREAT ASSand#44; AND A V12???? HOW COULD A MAN ASK FOR MORE......... <br /> THIS CAR REMINDS ME OF A GENTLEMANS HOT ROD RIGHT OUT OF THE SIXTIES ..... LARGE INVESTMENT... BEST OF EVERYTHINGand#44; RECEIPTS TO PROVE IT AND IMMACULATE.....SOMEBODY LOVED THIS CAR AND IT SHOWS EVERYWHERE........... PRICED ON THE MONEY.
