I would think that the 347/368 Lincoln series (Lincoln's Y-Block 1952/1957) would be the best choice (if you can find one) as it is open to more detail, i.e. it has a lifter valley pan that can be chromed, etc. There was a two four barrel option in 1957. It is similiar in appearance to the FORD Y-Block.

It would look good detailed in an open engine compartment. A custom FEAD aluminum billet mounting with alternator, Sanden A/C compressor and single drive belt would be something.

I think that the original "Hot Rod Lincoln" was a Model A Ford with a flathead V12 Lincoln engine. Good luck !

Hey Kultulz, Thanks for the web add. Hadn't seen that one before.
That 33 would be nice with a V12, Hard to find, tho and I'd hate to break down and try to find parts to fix it.

Charlie lives here in Spokane and I used to see the Lincoln at local car shows. I haven't seen it for awhile. I didn't realize he was that old.

The original"Hot Rod Lincoln" was an "A" with the flathead V8 you're looking fo. One of the rod magazines ran it a few years back, still with the original owner and writer of the song. I see a few of the V12s occasionally but Hemmings would be your best bet for the V8.

I am working on putting a 337 49-51 lincoln flathead in my model a. Oh ya it also has a 671 on top of it. I live in Lincoln NE. I have found about 10 motors from many different places. I have also been gathering up all the literature I can find on this motor. Maybe we can do some talk'n sometime.

SJFast: You are correct, the original Hot Rod Lincoln was a '31 Model A with a V12 Flathead Lincoln engine. Bright Freakin' Red. The guy that wrote and sang the song (Charlie Ryan) is alive and well and doin' his thing in Spokane Wash. And he STILL HAS the car!! I got some pics of it last time I was there whren he was playing at a VFW.
