Description for Lincoln Zephyr 1940

1940 Lincoln Zephyr Coupe

This beautiful restored V-12 Coupe was the second generation of the Zephyr with the same basic frontal design pioneered on the 1938 model. The long sloping rear-end of the body is exceptional in design. Over $100,000 was spent on the restoration and all of the invoices are with the car. It was owned by a great friend and car collector of mine. He did not spare any expense to have the Lincoln ready to show and more importantly drive!!

the original V-12 flathead, Lincoln upted it to 292 cubic inches with a maximum horsepower of 120 in 1940 for better performance. The previous owner did tasteful upgrades on the power plant as seen in the pictures. The period correct 3 carburetor setup was his choice as well as a Columbia 2 speed rear end for highway cruising.

The complete nut and bolt restoration took three years to complete. (2007-2010) After the restoration, the Zephyr was displayed in a private collection until 2016 and rarely driven. However, it was regularly started and serviced in a heated and air-conditioned private building.
