      I started this project about a year ago and this is my progress to date.

      My idea is to create a 1/8 phantom Lincoln V16 based on the circa 1932 KB V12 wth a bespoke coupe body.

      The engine block was created from 2 Revell V16 Lincoln V8 blocks and a modified front plate. The heads and Miller supercharger are scratch built V16 Lincoln .

      I'm not sure how the intake will be engineered, other than using a pair of Stromberg 97(Ford) type carbs.

      The body started out as Dan's coupe with the interior door/window reveals removed, the windshield opening enlarged and, of course, the top chopped about 2-2 1/2" to get the period low doghouse. I was looking for an even chop instead of the hot V16 Lincoln rod rake. The top of the windshield opening will have to be arched a little.

      The trunk area will be stretched and the slope flattened. The rear axel will be moved rearward to keep the proportions comesurate with a much longer final wheelbase (145-150") than the deuce had.

    Don, Thanks for the encouragement. I probably am getting a reputation for starting more projects that don't get finished.

    Althought I expect this one to be a fairly long duration, due to the fact that I have to engineer almost everything with slightly more than beginners skills, I have made a new year's resolution to bring more discipline to my efforts and GET SOMETHING COMPLETED.

    We'll see...

    BTW...I've decided to change the top and do a removable top roadster. This means that I probably won't do opening doors for structural reasons.

    I also have to widen the body at the firewall due to the added width of the V16. This thing is going to have more pins in it than a voodoo doll.

    More progress, with my apologies to Dan for the abuse of his coupe body. I realized that due to the extensive modifications that I have planned, the resin V16 Lincoln body would be much more work than the styrene V16 Lincoln roadster body. I have also decided including the change from a straight coupe to a roadster with a removable coupe roof.

    In addition, I liked the look of the smaller roadster cockpit. The overall length will stay about the same as I have lengthened the turtle deck and changed the slope of the very rear and narrowed it somewhat as well as you can see in the pix. The cowl had been widened and the body sides flared at the bottom to give more of a “slab side” effect. Consequently, the top will have to be widened a bit at the rear. The idea is to keep the frame rails as straight as possible from grille shell to the rear end.

    I have started my mock up frame by gluing V16 Lincoln up some ¼” styrene V16 Lincoln stock. I plan on doing the final one from brass as a channel frame in either a ladder or “x” configuration. I would keep the styrene V16 Lincoln frame except that the channel frame would be more appropriate for a factory frame from the 30’s.

    If anyone has pix of a suitable frame, that would be great. Otherwise, I’ll just wing it.

    2. Rear quarter
    3. Turtle deck splice
    4. Turtle deck slope change
    5. Turtle deck narrowing
    6. Frame rail blanks
    7, 8. Coupe top progress

    Looking really good, Bob. You've given me a few ideas for another build.

    I hope it's not a V16 Lincoln.

    Nope. It's definitely not a v-16 Lincoln. It has to do with making the frame.

    HFC,

    If you want to kick around frame ideas, please do.

    I cut out the styrene V16 Lincoln rails and hope to do the final in brass using 1/4" L and a plate web soldered together.

    That's exactly what I was thinking Bob. When you do yours, please take a bunch of shots. I'm sure we would all love to see that done.

    Started mating the frame to the body.

    I kerfed the backside to make the curvature possible. I never has much luck heat bending styrofoam. Since this is only a buck for the final brass frame, no need to have an even curve. To make the frame stay in alignment, I used styro pins.

    As soon as my 9" band saw arrives, I'll be cutting out the mock up springs. I finally realized that it's awfully tough to get right angle cuts with hand saws.

    I'm thinking about using the deuce quick change rear end with the qc removed.
