1938 Lincoln Series 86H Zephyr Vehicle Profile

Convertible Sedan
Sold for $85,100 at 2013 Bonhams.
The Lincoln Zephyr was introduced in 1936 and it was an immediate sensation. It was priced to accommodate the moderately affluent buyer. Successful purchasers received a streamlined, all-steel vehicle with a futuristic interior and powered by a V-12 engine. The L-head engine sat at a 75-degree angle and offered 110 horsepower.

The Lincoln Zephyr was offered only in closed models for 1936 and 1937. For 1938, two new open styles were added to the line - a Convertible Coupe and the Convertible Sedan. The Convertible Sedan was the most expensive 1938 Zephyr and just 461 examples were built. Wind deflectors were added to the front doors and the center upper door pillars were designed to fold away for top-down driving. e convertible top was lined inside, in the style of a European cabriolet.

The inside featured a full tan leather interior and center-stack gauge and control cluster.

In 2013, the car was offered for sale at Bonhams Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $85,100 including buyer's premium.
