Under the long beautiful hood of “The French Connection” is an extraordinary Italian-made V12 HEMI engine. Boyd Coddington’s last build will be crossing the Barrett-Jackson auction block in January. Yes you heard that correctly, a 12 cylinder HEMI. Mated to a custom Turbo 400 transmission and a hand fabricated fuel injection system with 12 Weber Carbs. From top to bottom this car screams Boyd Coddington.
“My dad set a standard for his workmanship, creativity and thinking from which he never deviated. He strived to personalize each hot rod to be different without being odd. The flawless metalwork, paint and wheels were always a given. When he saw a line in the body that didn’t suit his overall vision, there was no hesitation, and that line was changed. “The French Connection” reflects the awesome standards and the creative thinking of my dad.” – Boyd Coddington Jr.
