  5. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: simplyconnected</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Shouldn't blinds be black so you can see THROUGH them? </div></div> It is printed on the box that these blinds were painted in a nuetral color to both block out sunlight but match the cars interior.

  7. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: Phil Knapp</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Hi Robert, Whoever made up the specifications for these blinds apparently wasn't aware of the different configurations of rear windows in pre-war Fords, Mercurys and Lincolns. Oddly enough, all of these cars used the SAME rear window, so these blinds will fit any and all of these cars. --------------------------------------------------------- 1941-48 Ford 2-door, 4-door & Club Coupe 1940-48 Lincoln 2-door 1940-48 Lincoln 4-door 1940-48 Lincoln
  8. Up For Sale is this set of NOS Venetian Blinds. These have never been mounted or outside of box. These blinds are the perfect additon to any restoration. One of the Hardest to Find Accessories! Unlike some other blinds you will find, These blinds were made in the USA by ALLSTATE and already come assembled, avoid the hours of frustration trying to find all the pieces and put them together. They are ready to install, just snap them in! Complete with copy of instruction sheet. They measure approx. 32" across at the widest point and 12 1/2" high, top to bottom on the installation bars. A great gif

I have a bunch of them, the shoes look the same, except they are much wider than the H's, '49 and up?? I have no idea, but I know you do, and Short, Bill also has a '40Z, not a connie- </div></div> Rolf, You had a bad day or what? I didn't mi

I did say that i was going to look into Narragansett (meaning get a catalog) but only after you recomended them to me...why do i want to order a shelf full of Non Zephyr catalogs??

I'll thank them for putting on the correct grille piece though..

Is this true?

  16. Who carries rubber for Zephyrs period! I am gonna be needing new rubber all the way around and would like to keep the chrome insert in my rubber if i could. Does any body re-pop or carry Zephyr rubber in stock?
  17. Ok well to clear things up a little....Everything you say seems to be true...except, that the grilles are the same. After looking over other pics and going out to look at the car. The grilles are the same (see new pic). But why do you suppose someone would put a 46-48 dash in a 40? Everything else seems to be 40 right? (besides the hub caps which probably came from the same car as the dash)If they did do a swap, they did a real nice job because it looks like it was in there for many years and it also looks factory done. But again why would someone do this without changing anything else but the
  18. What year does this dash board seem to be? I just bought a 40 Zephyr sedan and this is the dash in it. I have looked at other 1940 dash boards and they are different as is the 41. I have however researched the 42 and this dash seems to be what is inside the 42.....Is my car a 42 or a 40? or did Lincoln use different dashes for Luxury vs. Standard models?? Here is the dash and a ful shot of the car as well..
