The Lincoln Zephyr was the lower-priced line of mid-size luxury cars in the Lincoln line from 1936 until 1940. The Zephyr was similar to Cadillac's smaller LaSalle "companion car", the Chrysler Airstream, and Packard's smallest offering, the Packard One-Twenty. The car was conceived by Edsel Ford and designed by Eugene Turenne Gregorie. The Zephyr was unique in this class having a V12, while the LaSalle had a V8 engine, and the Chrysler and Packard had straight 8 engines. The Lincoln Zephyr wowed auto enthusiasts with its Art Deco era smooth slanting rear design. Zephyrs were thought to be extremely modern with a low raked windscreen, integrated fenders with full integrated skirts to hide the wheel well, and aerodynamic design. The Zephyr was Lincoln's first big hit and its first successful smaller and fashionable car. Only 800 of the Three-Window Coupes were ever produced and there may be as few as 30 remaining. This rare art deco Zephyr speaks for itself. It was fully restored several years ago and has been driven very few miles since. It has been maintained well and stored in a controlled environment. A thorough detailing is all that’s needed to bring this car back to life. All gauges are clear and in working order.
