1939 Lincoln Zephyr Series 96H / 96H74254 Chassis Information

Convertible Sedan
Chassis Num: 96H74254
Sold for $90,750 at 2011 RM Sothebys.
On November 2nd of 1935, the Lincoln Motor Company announced a new model called the Lincoln-Zephyr. It was priced at $1,275 to $1,320, less than a third the price of the least expensive Model K Lincoln.

A three-window coupe debuted for 1937. For 1938, the Zephyr received a new nose, a convertible coupe and a four-door convertible sedan. For 1939, the Zephyr - along with the Ford and new Mercury cars - received hydraulic brakes. Unlike its siblings, the Zephyr's brakes had servo-assist.

This convertible sedan was completed on May 17th of 1939. It was ordered by the Ford Motor Company Sales Department. It was delivered in Malaci Green, a special color, with a green leather interior and whitewall tires. It is believed to have been built for the Ford Motor Company display, The Road of Tomorrow, at that year's New York World's Fair.

In 1952, the car was on the used car lot of New York dealer Bob Grossman, where it quickly sold. In 1962, it was sold by Russell Decker to Don Cowan of Pittsfield, Massachusetts. It was purchased by Erwin Snyder of Claverack, New York in 1969. By 1996, it was in the care of the Winross Company of Churchville, New York, makers of high-quality model trucks. The car would pass through several more owners before being sold by Glenn Napierskie of Escondido, California in 2007 to Mr. John O'Quinn.

In 2011, the car was offered for sale at RM Auction's Arizona sale where it was estimated to sell for $50,000 - $80,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $90,750, inclusive of buyer's premium.
