Beginning as a tongue-in-cheek project, I've found changing all the proportions of a 1966 Lincoln Continental 2-door coupe gives us an interesting compact-sized luxury car. I liken it to the handsome British Ford Zephyrs and Zodiaks of the 1960s. Perhaps a Ghia-built coupe based on Lincoln's lines but built on a Zodiak chassis may have looked something like this. I think it looks a bit like those great Lancia and big Fiat coupes of the late Sixties and early Seventies. I added a skyline from Australia, Perth I believe, a likely market for this car had it been offered. If you "squint" I think it has a bit of an early '70s Rolls Royce Camargue look to it.
