1937 Lincoln Zephyr Coupe Resto-Mod
Final Bid: $ 118,250.00
This is a wonderful art deco 1937 Lincoln Zephyr Coupe that has been modified for beauty and comfort. It has a fuel injected Ford 5.0 liter V8, five speed manual transmission, a Ford 8.8 rear-end, power steering, air conditioning, power windows, and a hidden AM/FM CD sound system that is acoustically great sounding. The car was beautiful from the factory, so only minimal exterior modifications were made to improve the flowing lines. The ride height was lowered; the fenders were welded on, giving it a somewhat European flair and smooth look; the rear license plate- which looked like a sail on the left rear fender was removed and the license plate was put on the rear bumper where it belongs; the fuel filler was hidden because it took away from the gorgeous flowing body and the stock grill was chromed.
The interior is done with black leather, wool headliner and wool carpet- no vinyl or synthetics added! The original symmetrical dash was painted in a cherry burl over a gold mica base, which gives it great depth and life. The rest of the interior was in the original theme with subtle modifications, like power windows utilizing the original window cranks and the previously mentioned stereo system. A custom- larger seventeen-inch banjo steering wheel, with a Zephyr script horn button, steers the car, which rides on nostalgic radial wide white walls with custom wheel covers. The theme of the entire Zephyr is "if you did not know you would not know" (it is not stock). The Zephyr won Best in Class in the 2001 Concours D' Elegance in Forest Grove, Oregon. It has also won numerous awards including Best in Show, People's Choice, and many other awards in various shows around the Northwest.
