Description of this Lincoln MKZ/Zephyr 2-Door 1941

1941 Lincoln Zephyr Two-Door V12California Lincoln with a recent body-on restorationDesired 2 door prewar Lincoln Volanta Coach Maroon exterior with newer maroon/gray interior Very tidy interior with functioning clockRebuilt 292 CID V-12 engineThree-speed manual transmissionWide whitewall tires with full Lincoln moon wheel coversElectrical system upgraded from original six-volt to eight-volt Named for the streamlined Burlington Zephyr high-speed 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 two-door 12 cylinder, a stylistic benchmark and highly desirable example of one of the most successful Lincoln models of the prewar era.The car’s Volanta Coach Maroon exterior is in overall very good shape but the trim exhibits some minor blemishes. Its windows are clear and crack-free and the lights are in overall very good order but showing some patina on the related trim. This Zephyr rolls on bias-ply, wide whitewall tires with full Lincoln moon wheel covers. All of this car’s 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 75° V-12 engine developed from Ford's Flathead V-8 and unrelated to the larger K-series Lincoln V-12 engines. The valve-in-block 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 three-speed manual transmission. A pair of dual horns is also tucked under that hood. Currently the wipers and the blower motor are inoperable. Four-wheel 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, two-spoke 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 Borg-Warner overdrive, which replaced the popular Columbia two-speed rear axle. Lincoln’s total production in 1941 was just 14,469 cars of all body types. Only 972 were three-passenger coupes.The Zephyr was the first Ford product to have an all-steel 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 a drag coefficient of 0.45. Weight was 3,350 pounds.Competition to this Zephyr in 1941 included Cadillac’s Series 62, Chrysler’s Imperial and Packard’s 120.This car is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows 44,373 miles. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear, exempt mileage California title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!VIN: H122174Body No.:16H-77-2487
