THE LINCOLN ZEPHYR

The Lincoln-Zephyr debuted for the 1936 model year and was instantly heralded for its stunning shape. It was streamlined and sleek, as well as beautifully sculpted with headlights fared into the front fenders. The design was by Bob Gregory, with more than a little guidance from Lincoln president Edsel Ford.

Redesigned for 1940, the Zephyr retained its external identity but benefited from a much larger glass area, the absence of running boards and sealed beam headlamps.

Beneath that stunning exterior was a larger 292 cid flat-head V-12 rated at 120 bhp. The three-speed manual transmission featured a column-mounted shift lever and took the power aft to the solid rear axle. The ladder-type chassis used transverse leaf springs front and rear, while brakes were hydraulic drums all around.

The 1941 Lincoln-Zephyr was offered in a half-dozen body styles: 3-passenger coupe, 5-passenger coupe, 4-door sedan, 2-door convertible coupe, 2-door club coupe and 4-door Brunn Town Car. Many students of automobile design would argue that the Lincoln Zephyr 3-passenger coupe was the most beautiful American car of its day. And few would argue that it has aged exceedingly well.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This elegant Lincoln Zephyr was purchased alongside the 1940 Packard 180 in January of 1989. Information on previous history before this point is non-existent, but a photo within the file, presumably from around the time of purchase, shows the car much in the same condition it exists in today. It had likely been restored in the 1980s and for the most part, this work has stood the test of time. Both the deep blue exterior and red leather show minor signs of age, but the vehicle remains largely very presentable. Furthermore, a reference book for 1941 Lincolns can be found within the file.

Dramatically stylish, these Zephyrs are still head turns nearly 80 years on and make a fantastic addition to any stable of vintage motorcars.
