Zimmer was an American automaker, based in Syracuse, New York. The original company was founded in 1978 as Zimmer Motorcars Corporation, a manufacturer of neo-classic automobiles.
The Zimmer Golden Spirit was the flagship of the Zimmer Motorcars Corporation with more than 1,500 produced during its production run from 1978 to 1988. The original Golden Spirit was built using a Ford Mustang chassis and drivetrain.
The second Zimmer Motorcars Corporation offering was the mid-engined Pontiac Fiero-based Quicksilver which was built between 1984 and 1988.
Art Zimmer purchased the rights to the company in 1997 and established the Art Zimmer Neo-Classic Motor Car Company (a.k.a. Zimmer Motorcars) which currently builds 10-20 automobiles and 10-20 fully custom 4-door dually Silverado trucks each year.
