Is this an "off topic" or an "other toy"? IDK

Anyway, I saw this and had to share; A'28 Ford Touring car with a '46 Lincoln engine. Yes, it sounds reeeel smooooth running.

That's cool! I've only seen one V-12 flathead. It was in a 48 Lincoln. I looked just like a 48 Mercury. Great old car!

That engine looks like big $$$$ to me! It looks great! My FIL had a 1952 Ford F10 with the flat head V8 in it. It sounded good once it got warmed up, but it didn't look anywhere near that good! Thanks for sharing the pics!

That is SWEET! Someone spent a lot of time at swapmeets and scrounging to find finned aluminum heads and 3 duece Stromberg set up for a V12.

The guy told me a story about a guy on the Left Coast would made a limited run of 15 sets of finned aluminum heads for the Lincoln after which he machined off the fins on the master to make stock looking heads. The 15 originals are worth mucho dinaros!

Oh! And I forgot to mention, this car started out as a 4 dr. sedan.

Ah, somebody else who discovered the joy of the Stromberg. They work great eventually, but they sure make you prefer a good old Quadrajet when setting them up.

The song was originally written and performed by Charley Ryan who really owned the 'Hot Rod Lincoln. Here is the backstory;http://en.wikipedia....ki/Charlie_Ryan
