Here is another great tip from Tim….. actually it was his suggestion to do this posting. With the first Lincoln, you could build a great V-12 powered, Paxton Supercharged traditional hot rod. The second one? Well, you leave that one alone. See for yourself after the jump.
Lets start with the 1942 unrestored Lincoln. According to the listing:
FOR SALE – VERY RARE 1942 Lincoln Zephyr 3 window coupe, V-12, Columbia 2 spd. rear end, unrestored nice car $ 15,000.00. Please call Michael on cell at XXX-XXX-XXXX. I also have a 1937 Lincoln Zephyr 3 window coupe, V-12, for sale at $ 50k.
For $15,000, would you ever think about a complete restoration of this car, or use the engine and drive-train to build that traditional Hot Rod that Tim suggested. Let me know here. See the listing here.
Now on to the restored 1937 Lincoln Coupe. The listing states:
FOR SALE – VERY RARE 1937 Lincoln Zephyr 3 window coupe, V12, Columbia 2 spd. rear end, older restoration and beautiful car…$ 50,000.00. Please call Michael on cell at XXX-XXX-XXXX. I also have a VERY RARE unrestored 1942 Lincoln Zephyr 3 window coupe, V-12, for sale at 15k.
At $50,000, this Lincoln better be at the top of the heap. This is still cheaper than the V-12 Continentals though, and these cars are approaching Classic Status. What would you do with this car? See the listing here.
