Coupe Sedan
The Lincoln Motor Company responded to a diminishing American luxury car market by introducing the streamlined Lincoln-Zephyr V-12 for 1936. In creating this car, Lincoln borrowed heavily on the technical and manufacturing expertise of its Ford Motor Company parent as well adapting several Ford V8 design concepts and numerous mechanical components.

After initially offering only two Zephyr body types for 1936, both sedan. Lincoln expanded the 1937 line-up to also include a coupe and town-limousine. This year's Zephyr was promoted as a car 'priced below its specifications.' The Zephyr was powered by a 267-cubic-inch L-head V-12 engine that was designed in the image of the Ford V8 and developed 110 horsepower.

The Ford influence was also seen in the car's employment of transverse-leaf front and rear springs. The Lincoln-Zephyr's single and major innovation was its one-piece welded all-steel body and frame construction (now known as 'unitized'), making it one of the first American cars to use the concept.

This particular example is the Model HB-730 six-passenger sedan, which was priced at $1,265, and had a production run of 23,159. It was found in northern Michigan, where it had languished in a barn for more than 30 years. The ground-up restoration, done by the owner, took 11 months to complete.
