  7. ZephyrDave I followed the build to the stage where you did the rear fenders longer, but then I kind of disappeared from HAMB, and totally forgot about your car, but it really really ended up nice, not for the fainthearted original minded :-), but everybody can see this is real craftsmanship, wow I love it Do you still have the coupe too ?

  11. Hi Would like to show you a Danish Coachbuild 1939 Lincoln Zephyr Here is a little story on the car The original owner of the Lincoln Poul Haakan Stoustrup, wanted a ’39 Lincoln Convertible really bad, but only 640 of those were built. Poul Lived in Denmark and WWII had just started, so there was no way Poul could get his hands on an original converible. Instead he was able to get a 4-door sedan which he took to the Dansk Karosseri Fabrik with the question if they could turn it in a two door convertible with two part soft top. They sure could, and work on the car started right away. In the process of turning the 4-door sedan into a two door convertible the windshield was chopped a little to make it look more in proportion with the rest of the car. The shop much have had a lot of work on the body reshaping the trunk section and doors. Since the car was build during the early stages of WWII it is assumed that no other body parts, as in longer doors and trunk were used on the car. Everything was hand shaped. The shop also created a two part soft top to fit the lower windshield around 1,5 inches. The car was finished in early 1940, but as far as Palle has found out the car was not on the road until after the war in 1946. The first Danisco Customs stamp on the paperwork shows that the car was built from a 4-door, and coachbuilt into a two door convertible and registered as such in April 1946. Never restored only a repaint in the 70s
