The car really was built by George Ryan, who wrote and sang the song Hot Rod Linclon years before Comander Cody. It was a model A Ford coupe with a wheelbase stretched in front of the cowl to contain a Lincoln V12. The car was shown at Back To The fifties in St. Paul about 15 years ago.

"It's got a Lincoln motor and it's really souped up
That Model A body makes it look like a pup
It's got eight cylinders, uses them all
It's got overdrive, just won't stall"

Not sure about the V12 mentioned above?

Are you sure it didn't have a 337 Lincoln Flathead in it?

The accuracy of the lyrics should be taken with a pinch of salt - I mean, have you ever listened to the lyrics of "Greased Lightnin'"

LOL

I think there might have been two cars dubbed the Hot Rod Lincoln, both were Model A's, one had the Zephyr V-12 and the other ran a Cosmopolitan 337 V8...?

There have been several "covers" of the original song; the most recognized cover is the version by Commander Cody. Not sure if he recorded it with the Lost Planet Airmen or the Ozone Rangers… CRS strikes again.

check you tube, Arkie Shebley,when interviewed he stated he was the kid in the hopped up model A the car was custom built on a lincoln frame with a model A body, originally was a v-12.as Vic stated there were numerous versions recorded. I was wondering myself, as a youngster I heard it in the original version, and almost never found the original cut , of whitch it speaks of the song the ford and mercury,( Hot Rod Race). At the time he stated he still owns the car.

Thanks for the Hot Rod Lincoln link. Something out there for everything. I'm 57 & have been playing guitar since 7th grade (do the math) and I still can't play that song. Oh I know the notes and everything but can't play it anywhere close to fast enough. I go to the music stores and these 13 yr old kids have fingers that fly! Maybe if I didn't have stiff hands and split knuckles from pulling on wrenches I could play it!
