    Re: Searching for 41 Zephyr

    UPDATE. Have contacted Glenn, who has my Dad's 41 Zephyr. We are negotiating, hope we can reach a deal. Seems the original Michigan purchaser only wanted some parts off the car, he must have gotten it cheap, as now it is missing the engine, transmission, radio and various trim items that I can see from the photos. Still looks like th paint may shine out and the body looks solid, but it is my Dad's car. Will post if we can make a deal.

    Re: Searching for 41 Zephyr

    We have come to a deal!!!!! I will be selling my 58 Cadillac in order to finance this purchase and restoration. I will have it on Ebay and the AACA Cadillac forum soon. Will be looking for a V12 engine and original transmission as well as radio and heater, headlight trim, hubcaps and a few other pieces. Thanks everyone for your interest and support. Any parts leads will be appreciated.

    Re: Searching for 41 Zephyr

    I have a v12 long block available here in SE Michigan. Dont have history on it, but if I recall correctly the heads are the alter castings for 41 and up. As long as youre eventually coming to MI for the car, if you want to pickup the engine as well, I'm sure we can work something out.

    I dont think this is your Dad's engine though - I bought it and had it transported from a fellow in Wyoming a few years back along with several other engiens and parts.

    Re: Searching for 41 Zephyr

    Jim, thanks, I would be interested in the engine. Do you know if the engines on these cars have matching numbers to the frame?

    Re: Searching for 41 Zephyr

    New info. There is an anomoly with the title on the Zephyr. I do believe this is my dad's car, I need to verify that a Gerald Brochstein of Detroit, a car designer, is the person who bought the Zephyr from Tim Urban in Texas. Anyone out there know Mr. Brochstein?

    Was your father in law a stylist for GM? I was told a guy that owned the car worked in the styling dept and drove a 41 Zephyr sedan...

    Re: Searching for 41 Zephyr

    Gerry Brochstein meets for lunch every Wednesday in Birmingham Michigan with a friend of mine, I am sure I can get his phone number easily enough

    Re: Searching for 41 Zephyr

    I sure would like to talk to Mr. Brochstein. My number is 832.541.9871. Thanks. Also, the father in law is the father in law of the person who has the car now, not my father in law. He got the car from Gerald Brochstein of Detroit, who got the car from Tim Urban of Pasadena Texas, who got the car from my dad, Bill Dove of Livingston Texas. Thanks for your help!

    Re: Searching for 41 Zephyr

    I have verified that the car in question is indeed my dad's old Lincoln!! Have wired the money to Glenn, and am arranging shipping. Once I get the car and can take inventory, I will send out a plea for parts, or a good parts car with engine and overdrive transmission.
