Named for the streamlined Burlington Zephyr highspeed express train, itself named for the Zephyrus, the mythical Greek god of the West Wind, look what that wind has blown into MotoExotica Classic Cars. We are proud to present this 1941 Lincoln Zephyr twodoor 12 cylinder, a stylistic benchmark and highly desirable example of one of the most successful Lincoln models of the prewar era.
The cars Volanta Coach Maroon exterior is in overall very good shape but the trim exhibits some minor blemishes. Its windows are clear and crackfree and the lights are in overall very good order but showing some patina on the related trim. This Zephyr rolls on biasply, wide whitewall tires with full Lincoln moon wheel covers. All of this cars body panels are straight, solid and look great after 75 years. The engine bay is very tidy and the battery looks new.
Under that hood is a 75V12 engine developed from Ford'sFlatheadV8and unrelated to the larger KseriesLincoln V12 engines. The valveinblock flathead engine was quite compact, allowing a low hood. The 1940 and 1941 cars used an enlarged 292 CID engine. Mated to that engine is a threespeed manual transmission. A pair of dual horns is also tucked under that hood. Currently the wipers and the blower motor are inoperable. Fourwheel hydraulic drum brakes provided stopping power and the electrical system has been upgraded to eight volts from the original six.
Inside, the maroon and gray interior complements the exterior well. The bench seats are in excellent order, the red carpet is in good shape and the tan headliner makes for a nice contrasting element. The wooden instrument panel is in very good condition and the original, twospoke steering wheel is in good order. Even the wooden windowsills still look great and add a charm and warmth to the interior. The car has no radio but the clock still ticks
Several styling updates were introduced for 1941 while leaving the excellent basic design intact. Among them were minor changes to bumpers, grilles and headlamp bezels; parking lights/turn signals were moved to the tops of the front fenders and the hood release was repositioned to the interior. Underneath, longer, wider springs yielded improved ride and comfort. New options included a deluxe radio with a foot switch to select stations and BorgWarner overdrive, which replaced the popular Columbia twospeed rear axle. Lincolns total production in 1941 was just 14,469 cars of all body types. Only 972 were threepassenger coupes.
The Zephyr was the first Ford product to have an allsteel roof, except the late 1931 Model AA truck. John Tjaarda designed the Zephyr. Aviation fascinated him, which resulted in Lincoln using unibody construction. Unibody builds were relatively light and rigid for their size with adrag coefficientof 0.45. Weight was 3,350pounds.
Competition to this Zephyr in 1941 included Cadillacs Series 62, Chryslers Imperial and Packards 120.
