1937 Lincoln ZEPHYR TYPE 730 SEDAN
Chassis no. H19555

Alongside the Type 720 Coupe, Lincoln marketed 3 other body styles which also echoed the 'teardrop' theme in every aspect of their design from the wings to the model badging on its bonnet. In this series of cars, it can be argued that Lincoln gave Americans access to car design which in Europe would have been specifically tailored for clients at the Grands Carrossiers, such as Figoni et Falaschi at a price point of somewhere between $1,100-1,425.

The 730 Zephyr sedan in the collection is the perfect counterpart to the two-door coupe, which shows what the coachbuilder could do with all the huge void of space behind the driver/passenger bench seat if one wasn't simply making a two door coupe. The answer, an equally wind-cheating aerodynamic conveyance, which proved incredibly popular again nearly doubling sales in 1937 with some 23,159 units delivered.

Presented in striking sky-blue livery, the Sedan here is one of the longer standing components of this collection, having migrated from America in 1990 accordingly to customs document on file. Like the coupe, its condition is one of a much older restoration, quite possibly blended with some of the original finishes also. The interior seats appear to have been renewed in striped teal cloth, which compliments the car's exterior.
