At the intersection of luxury, custom, and unique is this 1985 Zimmer Golden Spirit. With proportions and styling from the 30s atop a Mustang chassis, it combines dramatic looks with all the modern conveniences.
Here's classic Mercedes style with American flair. The Zimmer Golden Spirit was a hand-built, limited production car that were expensive to buy new and cherished by the lucky few who could pick one up. You can tell this was cared for just by the condition of the custom bodywork. With coordinating elements, such as the full-length pinstripe, covered spare wheel wells in each fender, and even another on the rear. This car was about showcasing its opulence, and today it has matured into a style all its own. After all, where else are you going to find a car with a vinyl roof that matches the padding on the trunk? Plus, the complete brightwork reminds us of the classic cars of Europe in places like the waterfall grille, dual push bumpers, side exhaust port decoration, and wire wheels. And this one even lives up to its golden name with the bold golden eagle leading the way.
This is no kit car, and so the donor Mustang's passenger safety cage, doors, and windshield were retained. That gives it better build quality, but you still might not recognize the pony car's DNA when you step inside. The Recaro seats cost a small fortune all by themselves, and they give this car a grand touring level of comfort. The Mustang's gauges are fitted to the dash, but the round package in the burled walnut fascia give this the upscale and sporty feel that the Zimmer was perfect at portraying. Even the gold steering wheel has a wood surround to keep everything feeling luxurious. Other factory features included power windows, tilt wheel, power locks, and cruise control. But this one has been upgraded to more modern conveniences where it counts in places such as the AM/FM/CD stereo and air conditioning running R-134a for easier servicing.
One peek under the hood will reveal the Mustang's famous 5.0-liter fuel-injected V8. Powerful, versatile, and reliable, it means you have a car that looks custom on the outside, and it's simple and inexpensive to keep it running in top condition. And when you take this out on the road, you realize that the previous owners have been quite diligent about keeping it strong and smooth (and it has averaged less than 1,500 miles per year.) The lengthened frame means it has the kind of luxury ride you'd expect from a car of this stature. Plus, the Ford's power steering, front disc brakes, and four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive all deliver modern a ride quality in a pre-WWII style package.
Complete with owner's manual, this Zimmer delivered the custom car experience with the fit and finish of a factory product. It's the best of both worlds that today is a rare sight. So you can now be the most comfortable and interesting car in your neighborhood all for an obtainable price. Call today!!!
