Description

Lot #1387 - This one-off custom-made car looks similar to a '37 Delahaye and was Boyd Coddington's last build before he passed away. Known as "The French Connection," the car has a custom one-off Art Morrison chassis, an Italian-made 12.8-liter, all-aluminum HEMI-headed V12 BPM motor, and a custom-built Turbo 400 transmission. Also features a custom Ford 9" rear end, coilover suspension and custom one-off Boyd Coddington wheels. The custom hand-formed aluminum and steel body is by Marcel and Sons. The upholstery is made from 15 full ostrich skins and two full cow hides. Also has custom-made fitted luggage and a custom fuel-injection system. This is Boyd's last vision for a car - his final ride. Comes with Letter of Authenticity from Boyd's wife, Jo Coddington. **TITLED AS A 2015 SPECIAL CONSTRUCTION**
