....I sketched up a version for a 33 Ford to use the Lincoln V12 I have sitting in the basement so anything can be done, it just takes time :(
Never mind that Prancing Pony, a '33 Ford with an old Lincoln V12 would be coolness beyond measure. :notworthy:

Now you've got me pricing bodies and thinking about if doors are actually require if it's sectioned and has running boards........i'm thinking full fender roadster exposed carbon-fiber body, drysump the v12 so it sits stupid low, spaceframe much like the formula car I posted(which is why I don't want doors), transaxle in back for weight balance, keep it under 1200lb so the 300jp or so I can pull from the old 12 is plenty........hmmmmmmmmmmmm......i need to finish my garage.
