Blending the style and grace of 1930s automobiles like Auburn and Duesenberg with the modern amenities and structure of Ford’s Mustang, MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to present this 1987 Zimmer Golden Spirit Coupe. This handsome car comes from a local collector that has decided to downsize his collection. We also have the collector's 1937 Ford and 1948 DeSoto available for sale.

Built in Pompano Beach, Florida, this example has had only three prior owners and has been stored in a garage since 2007. It was reportedly only driven to local weekend car shows whenever possible. Finished in black, with burgundy and amethyst pinstriping, landau roof, Continental-style spare tire in the rear and a pair of side-mounted spares ahead of the running boards and covered trunk with external luggage rack. The car’s paint and trim are in overall very good condition, with only minor blemishes visible upon close inspection. The car’s coachwork is in excellent order, straight and solid. The engine bay is quite tidy and the car’s dual-bladed bumpers look fantastic. Perched above the front bumper are fog lights and quad air horns.

This Zimmer rolls on Coker Classic wide whitewall tires mounted on 15-inch wire wheels. The tires and wheels are all in good, original order. Golden Spirits offer independent front suspension with a four-link rear suspension and front and rear stabilizer bars.

Under the hood is a 302 CID V-8 engine with electronic fuel injection backed by a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive and a 2.73 differential with Traction-Lok. Driver convenience features include air-conditioning, power steering, power brakes with ventilated discs in front, power windows, power mirrors, power locks, dual power seats, cruise control, power trunk release and intermittent wipers.

Inside, the Zimmer has a burgundy leather interior with woodgrain accents. The seats are in good, original condition, as is the matching carpet and headliner. There’s a sharp, three-spoke Nardi steering wheel with a wood rim, an instrument panel with full instrumentation, and inner door panels that are all in good, original order. The right door window switch is inoperable and the left side power seat does not operate forward and reverse. There are overhead map and reading lights and rear vases. The center console has matching woodgrain accents and a Pioneer AM/FM stereo with a CD player completes the interior.

To create Zimmer Golden Spirits, Ford supplied new Mustangs, which were then modified by stretching the frame for a longer wheelbase and modifying the bodywork etc. The Zimmer is considered an “era” car. Era cars were built from readily available parts (VW or Sprite convertible body, Corvette suspension, Buick/Lincoln/Chevrolet engines, etc.) and made to replicate the long hood, exposed headlight, side-mount spare tire-look of the classics of the 1930s.

The Golden Spirit was the flagship automobile for the Zimmer Motorcars Corporation. Zimmer produced more than 1,500 Golden Spirits during its 10-year production run. Zimmer used the Ford Mustang chassis and drivetrain in the construction of the original Golden Spirit.

Documentation includes a copy of the 1987 Zimmer owner’s manual, several Zimmer brochures from 2005 to 2008, service records from 2006 to date and more.

Competition to this Zimmer in 1987 included the Clénet, the Excalibur and the Stutz Blackhawk. If vehicles such as these are your cup of tea, you should make a point of stopping by MotoeXotica Classic Cars today to review this Zimmer in person.

We strongly encourage a physical inspection to avoid any misunderstandings or representations.
