    Is that an updated Rolls Royce Phantom Coupe?

    Chrysler had something kinda similar with their Imperial concept.

    Actually every part of the donor Phantom Coupe was changed EXCEPT the grille, which was the entire point of this chop. I was in no way hiding the Rolls Royce origins. Read about it here:
    http://artandcolourcars.blogspot.com...ark-ixthe.html

    You'll notice the greenhouse/windshield, and sides have been changed to be more Lincoln.

    Here is a completely different Mark IX LSC, a V12 powered 2+2. This uses a modified original '69 Mark III grille, and the Kia GT concept car was the donor car.

    My point in these chops was to come up with a new face for Lincoln, as they're going to give up on their new twin grille apparently. I think they could bring back their classic '70s and '80s "Parthenon" grille in a new format for their luxury cars going forward.

    Lincoln Mark IX:



    I think it was 1999 or 2000.
    "The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere the ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity. "

    W.B. Yeats- 1919

    The Mark 9 (arabic numeral, not roman) was a 2001 concept. I numbered my "production" Mark IX chops to follow the production Mark VIII.

    I loved that Mark 9 though, I think Ford should have produced it:

    That's my kind of car. I'd love to see Lincoln go in that direction as far as design is concerned. I'd drive that if it were slow.
