The idea for this automobile was initially drawn on a napkin at a private dinner between Paul Zimmer and Robert Zimmer, Paul Zimmer's son. Paul Zimmer drew what was to become the Golden Spirit Motorcar on a napkin, handed it to Bob Zimmer and told him that not only were they going to build a neoclassic automobile, but that Bob would be responsible for the product development, initial manufacturing setup, staffing for all functions of the operation and ongoing supervision of Zimmer Motorcars Corporation. The Zimmer Golden Spirit was the flagship of the Zimmer Motorcars Corporation with more than 1,500 being produced during its production run. The exterior design is pure classic grandeur right out of the Great Gatsby era, handmade to the highest quality possible.
Starting in 1979, Ford offered the Foxbody Mustang as the new basis for Zimmers. The frames were stretched for a longer wheelbase and the bodywork modified. The Mustang VIN was retained as it met all the required US safety features at the time.
The driving experience is what makes these cars so great. You have all the modern conveniences and reliability without compromising the classic look. Competition to this car in 1983 included the Excalibur Series IV Phaeton.
