    V-12

     



    Would a 1948 mercury V-12 flathead be worth building, found it on CL $950..complete except carb.? It could be cool in my `37...

    It has to be a Lincoln V12.
    Merc never made them.
    Be a major struggle to get it to fit in your '37.
    Does it come with the box?

    Now THAT would be different! Be a boat load of work I'm sure but, imagine everyone tripping over themselves when they look under the hood!

    I once saw one adapted into an early fordson tractor. I thought it was way to COOL!

    I think they were only about 125hp. You can get some speed parts for them but very pricey. But for a visual effect they can't be beat!

    All sorts of applications. Sweet talk Mr. Thurm into casting an extra set of "Ardun" (or should that be Thurmdun?) heads.

    It's much easier to promise someone a "free" ride on the wagon than to urge them to pull it.

    Luck occurs when preparation and opportunity converge.

    guy at work had a whole car including the v12 in a 48 Lincoln.
    couldn't find a buyer- it was his mom's.
    certainly it's in a junkyard nearby here now.
