Reportedly only 350 of these hand built 1940 Lincoln Zephyr V12 Continental Convertible models were built with very few still known to exist according to the Lincoln Zephyr Owners Club. One of just 350 cabriolets built in 1940. Older restoration from a renown collection that presents beautifully. V12 backed with highly desirable overdrive transmission. CCCA Full Classic.

The stunning example offered here was assembled at the Long Beach, California plant on 22 May 1940, according to the cars build sheet. Shipped to its original owner on 29 May 1940, the car was nicely appointed with whitewall tires, radio, two-speed rear axle, clock, and the optional stone deflector, this stylish and rare Continental cabriolet must have turned heads in 1940, as it does today. In recent years it has been kept in the same show-ready condition by the collection staff and is in as fine condition as the day it was last restored.

This particular example was beautifully and painstakingly restored with no expense spared some years ago prior to being acquired by its long time collector owner in this ‘Ivory’ color which is stunningly striking along with its white wall tires and Zephyr wheels. The ‘Tan’ leather interior with wool carpets has also been faithfully reupholstered and is in exceptional condition throughout and the correct factory canvas power Tan top is also in exceptional condition. There can only be very few miles on the car since it’s unibody (body welded to the frame) cosmetic and mechanical restoration. This is a rust free car that retains all of its original body panels including floors, rockers, and trunk with very straight panels. All the chrome has been replated including top bows, seat hardware, etc. Gold tone gauge cluster and the woodgrain were also fully restored. The floor boards, trunk and all the typical rust-prone areas are completely solid and rust-free and the car has has no signs of any accidents – a razor straight body and obviously an always garaged and cherished car since new with no rust! The original spare wheel and tire and factory tools are still located in their rightful storage place in the trunk.
