1938 Lincoln SUV (!?!) Street rod

Recommended Posts

Hi!

Since most Lincolns are dressed-up Fords anyway... why not imagine what a 1938 Lincoln "SUV" might have looked? Typical Lincoln grille & al. 

Lindberg's Vantastic, with much scratch: 1939 Mercedes looooooong fenders and molded running boards, with side skirts added, and 32 Ford front fender tips molded on, to keep a familiar look to it. Opened rear door (with Lincoln logo), complete interior with loading floor, 41 Willys' buchets, custom door panels, side-opening hood, Shelby Mustang modular engine, IRS, scratchbuilt front axle and suspension, parts box frame (heavily modified), etc.

Tamya's metallic + Testor's Wetlook clear. 

Care to submit a "Lincoln sounding" name for it? Open to suggestions!

Hours of fun with styrene!

Hi Robert!

Thanks for the suggestion. Is it a maritime term... like the long bow of a ship?

If so, it goes well along names such as Lincoln Navigator...

Hi Robert!

Ah... I stand corrected, then. My knowledge of medieval weapons is limited, I must admit. But your idea still fits the "elongated" pointy  front theme!

Great looking build. Someone in the 1:1 world might just build this. Besides the excellent body work and paint, the interior and chassis are the most impressive. I like the Ford in a Ford theme also.

Very well crafted version of a kit that can really be  a basis for creativity

Great work Claude. Super build. 

How about calling it the 'Lincoln Vantasy Deluxe'....... Playing on the kit's origin.

Cheers..... Geoff

Hi Geoff!

Well, great play of words. That may very well be it. Any other monicker, anyone?
