A spectacular 1981 Zimmer in premium condition is unbelievable. A custom Golden Spirit built exclusively for the flamboyant entertainer Liberace is just maaaahvelous. Outrageous might be a better word but whatever it is, you have to call it sensational, discriminating, spectacular. Among "neo-classics" the Zimmer stands alone in quality and popularity. Two decades after the original Zimmer production ceased, these hand crafted treasures continue to attract buyers the world over. Whether it's an oil sheik, basketball star, a one term governor or even the King himself, no other car makes a statement about its driver like a long and glamorous Zimmer. This Golden Spirit was custom built for Liberace in Pompano Beach Florida, September 1981. Less than 200 were made per year and each began life as a brand new V8 Mustang loaded with every option. The wheelbase was stretched an amazing 42 inches, bringing overall length to 17 and a half feet. The unique design kept the passenger compartment and entire drive train intact because all structural modifications happened ahead of the engine. It's a pretty slick piece of work with a surprising level of quality. As far as being an actual car; it goes down the road about like a seventeen-and-a-half-foot-long Mustang should. The V8 starts every time, runs smooth and seems to have enough snort to keep your classy Zimmer out of everybody's way. The air conditioner blows ice cold, the brakes stop the car and as long as you remember how long you are, it handles pretty much like an '81 Mustang. I can promise you this, though; no Mustang ever got the attention this cosmetic puff does. This beautifully ornamented Zimmer was indeed owned by Liberace and was "Mr. Showmanship's" favorite vehicle among his very interesting collection. It's easy to see why (if you're Liberace) when you consider some of the pricy upgrades this car received. There's lots of glitz for sure but with items like Marchal driving lights and dazzling custom Tru-Spoke wire wheels, there were no shortcuts taken. Of course it's hard to miss four air horns, each 17 inches long, enormous bullet shaped tri-bar headlamps and those "supercharger" tubes ahead of dual side mounts. Yes, it's over the top so of course it has side window deflectors (with etched "Liberace") opera lights and a "trunk" with real leather straps that must be unbuckled to access the luggage compartment. Your suitcase may not fit in there but what you will find is a battery (brand new) a full size spare, jack/tools and the whole works lined with "Wilton Wool" carpet. It ain't real but it does look like fur to me and there's a lot more inside. The star of the interior has to be the infinitely adjustable leather clad Recaro seats. These thrones do everything but paint your living room and do the dishes and they make the inside of this attention-getting car a comfortable place to be no matter how far you travel. The Nardi steering wheel is cool, gold plated (22kt. I'm told) and everything else is Mustang familiar and Ford functional. Of course, there are those switches on the console and what they do is light up the candelabra, sconces and Liberace froufrou that will impress (some of) your friends and make the wife question your sanity. (again) It's great for shows and we're throwing in a box of extra candle shaped bulbs and bases for those the-show-must-go-on emergencies where a burned out light may force you to accept a second place trophy. The car pretty much speaks for itself and just because we don't know what it's trying to say, doesn't mean it's not speaking your language.
