Default Identification help

Calling all gurus, I need help identifying this engine. Pretty unique. The owner has an idea on what it is but I don't want to get his hopes up until we know for sure. Took a couple snapshots of it. He has everything the crank the Pistons the cam the heads I believe the valves are there in a box. It is been taken apart and stored in his storage building that he inherited for as long as he knows. A couple of the parts have numbers on them but there's not much. Let's see what we can find out thanks in advance

Yep... I have this one waiting in my shop for a future build. It was a runner I bought a few years back because it ain't cheap to rebuild one! The Egge rebuild kit is $3,150!

Yeppers, V 12 Lincoln, post war I believe. 6h I think is 39-41, with 7 h being 42-48, but donít hold me to that. I donít have all my bookmarks on this iPad that I have on the home pc or I could check it. That is what my car would have had stock, about 305 cu in.

Iíve saw a few pictures of hot rodded Lincoln V12ís, pretty pricey speed parts IF you can find them. Aluminum intakes with 3 or 4 carbs and aluminum heads are out there, but pretty rare.

Just like flathead Fords, they were bad to run hot and crack.

He wants to sell it. But someone told him it's worth some decent money if it was a zephyr. I'm not sure on a value
