For Sale: 1940 Lincoln-Zephyr Business Coupe in College Place, Washington


Vehicle Description

Always a pleasure for AUTOCHOICE to represent classics cars that have been restored to perfection. WOW what a fine example with this 1940 Lincoln Zephry 2dr Business Coupe! I invite you to scrutinize all 190 plus photos carefully! You will find a car that could have just come off of the assembly line in Detroit. The car has been kept original as much as possible with the exception of a some safety items such as turn signals, retractable seat belts, outside mirrors and crab pockets in the arm rests.

This 1940 Lincoln Zephyr has been restored to last another 75 years, with care of course. The body was acid dipped, the underside, inside and all seams were coated with POR-15. Upol Raptor was applied to the underside and tinted raptor in the fender wells. Dynomat was applied in the total interior including the trunk. All wiring is new, purchased from Rhode Island wiring. The engine was rebuilt and broken in on my engine stand with a dyno. It pulled 130 HP. All adjustments, carb, etc, were done before installation. There is a picture of another engine on my stand in the photos. The transmission and Columbia 2 speed were likewise rebuilt. The front spring was reached, covered with burlap and the metal that only 1940's had, also note them in the photos. All upholstery was done by Bill O-Donnell, who has done a number of Pebble Beach cars from the NW. All instruments were rebuilt by "Bob's Speedometer", the radio was done by a local repairman, and it works. All pot metal was done by Mark at "The Finishing Touch". There is not a pit anywhere. The stainless was polished by "Proflections" in Puyallup, Washington.

The owner added turn signals, retractable seat belts, outside mirrors and grab pockets in the arm rests. As you can see by the "build sheet", black wall tires were original. The color is "Capri Blue Poly".
