Lincoln History

1940 Lincoln Zephyr

Share on:

This automobile was built for Edsel B. Ford in 1940. Mr. Ford, only son of Henry Ford, was president of the Ford Motor Company as well as the Lincoln Motor Company.

With the demise of the 'big' Lincoln chassis in 1939, the Lincoln-Zephyr chassis became the sole chassis available for custom coachwork. The body of this town car was built by long-time Lincoln coachbuilder, Brunn of Buffalo, New York. It is the oldest Brunn body built in 1940, number two.

The Lincoln-Zephyr had its own V-12 motor, but it was smaller than the big Lincoln's V-12 - 292 cubic-inches and 120 horsepower.

The car was restored in the late 1970's and remains in superb condition in modern times.
