This 1940 Lincoln Zephyr Continental Cabriolet was brought to the 2007 Monterey Sports & Classic Car Auction presented by RM Auctions, where it had an estimated value of $60,000 - $80,000. It was offered without reserve. Mounted under the bonnet is a 292 cubic-inch 12-cylinder engine with downdraft Stromberg carburetors and 120 horsepower. There is a column-mounted three-speed synchromesh transmission and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes.

The design for the Zephyr was handled by Designer Bob Gregorie who created the sketch in less than an hour It had the outline of the two-door, four-seat body over an outline drawing of a Zephyr sedan. The front fenders were extended and the hood line and cowl were lowered and pushed back. The unique folding top had blind quarters and there was hardly any bright trim which gave the vehicle a very simplistic, clean, and smooth appearance. Plus, there was little time to create these one-off pieces.

It was dubbed the Zephyr Continental and in 1941 would become the Lincoln Continental. A total of 404 examples were built in 1940 with 350 being cabriolets and the remaining 54 being coupes. All were hand built, expensive, and exclusive vehicles tailored to the prominent and wealthy in society.

This example has been in the present ownership since 1990. The color is burgundy with a camel colored Haartz cloth top and a matching burgundy leather interior. It was treated to a restoration, which was completed a number of years ago. Its appearance, fit and finish still shows well in modern times.

The selling price for this vehicle fell within the estimated value, selling for a high bid of $63,800 including buyer's premium.
