1941 Lincoln Zephyr Convertible-Project car for sale

Recommended Posts

It turns out that my projects have exceeded my physical capabilities and I need to divest myself of my most interesting project – my 1941 Lincoln Zephyr convertible coupe. I have had this car since 2006, but it got put on hold when I acquired a 1941 Lincoln Continental convertible.

I had aspirations to photograph both cars - side by side - to show their differences.

Over the years, I have accumulated a myriad of parts for the Zephyr but reality mandates that I divest myself of the Zephyr. I had a “Webshots” photo album of the Zephyr, but “Webshots” has gone defunct. However, the photos still exist and I can share them with anybody that would be interested in acquiring the car.

A partial list of my accumulated parts collection is as follows:

· A pair of V-12 engines, both seized but probably salvageable. (1 1941 and 1 1948)

· Two Borg Warner overdrive transmissions, plus a 1941 B/W overdrive and two short driveshafts.

· One standard transmission.

· Complete front and rear axle assembly.

· Split front seat for the convertible plus seat cushions from a 1941 Zephyr parts car for springs.

· Most of a fresh air heater assembly.

· Extra fenders and fender skirts (rusty).

· A reconditioned Rolf Burdette/Dee Peecher 1941 Zephyr speedometer (very nice).

· Extra pair of front grilles (need plating).

· Extra door, trunk, and hood hinge assemblies.

· 4 1941 Zephyr 16x5 inch wheels and some hubcaps and beauty rings.

· Several pairs of 1941 Texas license plates.

· Pair of Bradley replacement front floor pans – not installed.

· NOS 1941 Lincoln Zephyr Muffler.

I know there’s more stuff but I can’t remember all of it!

No parts sold separately. I need to clean house!

I have invested about $20k in this stuff – make me a decent offer!

Also available: My tandem axle 24 Ft Wells Cargo enclosed trailer.

Phil,

Did you ever sell off this stuff? I might be interested in a Borg Warner and short drive shaft. I hope you're still on the forum and miss your posts.

Hi Dave,

I still have a short driveshaft and an OD transmission.

I'm hoping to be able to get to the Santa Maria Swap meet this November with a bunch of Lincoln parts.

I still have these plates:

I40-215, 352-261, and K94-602 are pairs (front and back), V67-722 is single.

Enlarge the photos to see the quality and make me an offer for what you like.

I got $150 for my best pair about a year ago.

Phil

Thanks, Mike

I have a pair of restored 1941 Texas license plates, attached to my 1941 Lincoln Continental.

However, they need to go with the (for sale) car! Phil[ATTACH=CONFIG]287509[/ATTACH]

Phil, Plates arrived about ten minutes ago. They look better in real life than their pictures. Registering the car early January then the plates are off to the restorer. Thanks again, I'll post some pics when they get back.

Sorry, all the extra parts went with the car.

thank you for getting back. I'm looking for parts for my 41 dodge 3 window coupe. complete taillight assemblies and chrome trim ring for back window. Those taillights looked like they would look good on my car. trunk lid very similar to mine. thanks again.

Phil, does that mean you sold it? If so, congrats. If not, do you still have the 41 Borg Warner and short driveshaft?

I still have the Borg-Warner OD and the short driveshaft.

The OD unit is probably for a post-war car and I don't have any of the control items, wiring, etc.

I bought them from Merv Adkins long before I realized that I would never finish the '41 Zephyr project car.

Make me a reasonable offer. I don't remember what I paid Merv for them, but Merv is never cheap!

Thanks, Phil. I haven't a clue what's fair, but I'll do a little research.
