For Sale: 1987 Zimmer Golden Spirit in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1987 Zimmer Golden Spirit practically defines the Neo-Classic world. It has a beautiful curvaceous body that has remained quite crisp and clean thanks to the low mileage. The interior has the best sporting luxuries, like the Nardi steering wheel and leather Recaro seats. And as you look under the hood, you can see that this custom is built on the backbone of Ford's legendary fuel-injected five-oh. It all makes for a true custom car that was truly made for cruising.


Zimmer made a small miracle... they created classic elegance with contemporary flair. These are full custom builds done in the traditional way with hand-crafting and small batches. There are great details, such as real wire wheels, wide whitewalls, faux exhaust pipes, wind wings, dual chrome bumpers, and a quad horn pack. The vinyl roof matches the vinyl trunk, and they are accented by details like landau bars and wooden slats. It's pure rolling opulence and excess. That's why they're covered spare wheel well displays in each fender and another covered spare hump on the rear! It looks great against the glossy black paint. The body looks clean and complete, with some hints of age in the overall finish. But when a vehicle that has averaged under 475 miles annually, it all shows a nice look of good care and less use. It really has earned an upper-class distinction, right down to the full pinstriping package running everywhere from the swopping fenders to the narrow hood that gives a proper touch of gold to this Golden Spirit.


They sold for well into six figure prices 35 years ago, and so Zimmer made sure the interior had the feeling of a true luxury exotic. And with so few miles on the car, that exclusive feeling remains. It includes a wood-rimmed Nardi sports steering wheel, beautiful wood panels for the wrapped dash, and power-adjustable Recaro front seats finished in supple leather. It's loaded with plenty more features like power windows, power locks, a tilt steering column, cruise control, an AM/FM/cassette stereo, and provisions for R134a air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) You will find clues to this car's Mustang roots in details like the exterior door design or the interior's gauges. But they don't detract from the overall hand-crafted feel of the car, and in fact, they seem to be a good reminder that they developed this opulent machine to truly be driven.


One peek under the hood will reveal the Mustang's famous 5.0-liter fuel-injected V8. Powerful, versatile, and consistent, this package means you have a car that looks custom on the outside, and beneath the skin, it's simple and inexpensive to keep it running in top condition. This feels strong and smooth on the road. The lengthened frame yields the kind of luxury ride you'd expect from a car of this stature. Plus, the power steering, power brakes, front discs, and four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive all deliver a modern ride quality in a vintage-style package.


Premium comfort, true distinction, and easy use all come together on the kind of car that will get people talking. So don't miss this Zimmer, call today!
