  1. Great photos! Thanks for sharing.
  2. I was contacted today by Dave Huhn (Faithful LZOC Member #282!) concerning brake cylinders for one of his 1941 Lincolns. Can anyone provide information on the availability of wheel cylinders and other brake components (e.g., NAPA part numbers, or similar source) or the interchangeability, if any, between the Lincoln HV-12 chassis and any other FoMoCo products -- Ford, Mercury, or commercial vehicles. Any information that would help Dave source his brake parts will be much appreciated. Please post any helpful information on this thread for future reference. If you want to also share informa
  3. I can tell you from experience that a Zephyr can haul a Continental. Check out https://robertmead.blogspot.com/2007/12/great-lincoln-buying-expedition.html Not highly recommended, however.
  4. Your car looks great! If you haven't done so yet, may I suggest you join the LZOC? You'll thank yourself for doing so once you get into the details of bringing this beautiful car back to life. And we'd all like to meet you and see your car at a future "Gathering oif the Faithful." Simply go here for instructions -- https://www.lzoc.org/membership-process The club's award-winning magazine is terrific. Hoping to meet you soon.
  5. I had good luck by sending a fabric sample to LeBaron Bonney in the past. They will respond with samples of their closest matches. http://www.lebaronbonney.com/ Bob Mead
  6. Does not have to be perfect. Will repair and re-plate it if necessary. Please provide picture(s) and price in correspondence. Thanks.
  7. I just posted this on the LZOC Facebook page: "This image was taken last evening in the parking lot of the Pierce Arrow Museum in Buffalo, New York. Buffalo is the starting point for this year's Great Race, which will arrive after a few days of precision rallying in Halifax, NS. It sure looks like someone is competing in a 1939 Lincoln-Zephyr Convertible Coupe! According to the Greatrace Website, Car 124 is being driven by Shawn Lednick and navigated by Harvery Lednick. We certainly wish the Lednicks and their beautiful Zephyr great weather, safe travels, no breakdowns or wrong turns, and
  8. We learned recently that Cecil Bozarth, long time LZOC member and active participant in this forum (CBoz) was taken from us way too soon. He shared generously, was always gracious and considerate, and inspired us with the restoration of his beloved 1937 Zephyr coupe, "Rita." Our sincere condolences go out to Cecil's family. It's impossible to imagine their loss. His obituary may be found HERE. Ray Theriault provided the following beautiful tribute on Cecil's obituary page - thoughts so worthy of sharing: "Ray Theriault May 27, 2018 I first met Cecil when he started the restor
  9. In 1965, I hadn't yet learned that Lincolns could be more fun...
  10. I have added this valuable information directly on the LZOC Website. You can find it HERE. Bob Mead, LZOC Webmaster
  11. Shirley, You have performed a great service by typing up these articles. Thanks on behalf of the many Zephyr enthusiasts in years to come who will benefit from your thoughtfulness. Hope you and Lee are really loving Montana. Bob Mead
  12. The fact is that this car was for sale and no restorer bought it. Any of us “purists” could have bought it, sunk a small fortune into it, and ended up with a car worth less than its restoration cost. I’ve come to believe that hot rodding is driven by simple economics.
  13. Thanks, Jeff. I love the speedometer shot! Bob
