    I like it! Maybe another inch down on that grille. Maybe not...

    Great stance and proportions

    I dig your coupe... and the new lowered grille shell and hood look great!

    Also, I see Sellers is doing intakes and heads for the Lincoln V-12....

    NOOOOO! No paint, that thing looks perfect just like it sets! It looks hungry, you need to feed it some import tin.

    Just lower the grille shell to no lower than the front axle or just above. Having the cowl top and the top of the grill parallel would be best for the right flow of the eyeball. A big motor like that needs a good size grille in front of it in my opinion.

    Cool combo for sure.

    Keep updating.

    Always interested in V12 powered rods. When I was lot younger in NZ my cousin (who is approaching 60) went out with a guy who had a V12 model A and there were a couple of characters who had a 34 coupe powered with one.

    There was even a hill climb car built here just after WW2 with a lincoln V12. the Kaye Special,,(wanna say who built the first rail job??)
    Funny that guys want to hear it run as there aint much to hear,this aint a lambo or Ferrari guys :D

    I like it - thanks for setting the engine back far enough to NOT have the nose out beyond the front tires.

    At least your fenders won't be "flappin' the guard rail posts.."

    Keep up the great work. That 12 looks like it is right at home between those rails.

    Lots of questions on the sound of these old motors. Because of their firing order, the Lincoln V12 was commonly referred to as a 'dual six' because when running they actually sound just like a six cylinder.

    "Arkie Shibley's Mountain Dew Boys made the song famous"

    but I never was clear as to how much truth there was to the lyrics

    "I was driven that Model A"

    ????

    Charlie Ryan wrote the lyrics and the music itself was a collaboration between Arkie and Charlie. Charlie's voice is what you hear on the original recording of Hot Rod Lincoln. He really owned it, and drove it. The "grapevine" referred to in the song is the Lewiston grade (Idaho) that heads north toward Pullman and then Spokane. Ryan was from the Lewiston Clarkston valley and his V12 coupe was well-known in the area back in the early 50s.
