Description
 
Gorgeous Zephyr with original V12, 3-speed transmission with factory overdrive, hydraulic windows, original cloth interior, and more! The car has won numerous awards including Best of Show and featured at the 2011 Greenwich Connecticut Concours! Proceeding World War II, all automobile manufacturers were eager to get back to what they did best, making cars! Ford and company started production again in July 1945, and few changes were made to the Lincoln cars as a result of limited design time. Although the Zephyr name was dropped officially, many Lincoln enthusiasts still consider the lines of 1946 all the same as the pre-war examples. Changes did include an early forfeiture of the 305ci displacement V12 back to the more reliable 292ci block casting, a new die cast front grill, gorgeous bumper guards at the front & rear, new ball & spear hood ornament, and distinct coat-of-arms emblem on the deck lid, just to name a few. We are very excited to offer this 1946 Lincoln Club Coupe finished in Burgundy Metallic with all original Burgundy cloth interior! This award winning example is showcasing a restoration completed some 20 years ago, but continues to amaze onlookers and admirers! Powered by its original 292ci V12 engine, 3-speed transmission with optional overdrive, and 4.44:1 factory rear end ratio, this Coupe will prove itself as quite the power house once behind the wheel. The clutch is silky smooth, and gear engagement is precise! The original hydraulic drum brakes bring this 3,915 pound coupe to a stop with ease! Additional features include power lift windows, Wonderbar AM radio, trumpet horns, auxiliary oil filter, fender skirts, turn signals, heater/defrost, optional fog lamps, and 4.5 Denman wide whitewall tires measuring 7.00-15 with a matching spare in the trunk. Shown almost exclusively with the past owner of 15 years, this car comes with dozens of trophies and awards! Its presentation is quite sharp, but we wish to stress its drive qualities match impeccably! It starts without hesitation, idles to a mere whisper, and begs the driver to stay out all day long! All dash instrumentation is functional, although the original radio & clock are currently inoperable. It was invited to participate in the Greenwich Connecticut Concours in 2011 as a testament to its overall condition! Along with the sale of this fine example will be original sales brochures, advertising, service & repair manuals, and a multitude of expensive spare parts for future servicing (extra distributor caps, fuel pump, carburetor, starter, plug wires, generator, gauges, transmission synchronizers, wheel bearings, gaskets, etc.) These were acquired by the former owner over the years when they became available and we wish to pass them on to the new owner. We would invite any potential buyers to call with questions, or schedule a chance to review this Club Coupe in person! We look forward to earning your business on this investment grade Lincoln!
