55 Dude, Your 1940 Lincoln Zephyr Continental cabriolet is indeed body #288 on the production line. Good find. LZOC members always able to help with your coming problems....Just email. You need a build sheet (lists articles on car when manufactured) from the Benson Ford Research Center. Look for address under "FAQ" car on this LZOC webpage. Invaluable. Also, print out an application to join LZOC. We are here to help you. Good luck and Happy Zephyring.

does anyone have any info on Mandeville Motors in 1940? Looks like the 40 was shipped on May 8th 1940, does anyone know where the Dealer was? built May 1st 1940. cool to have the archive info on car, having build sheet is very helpful. $20 is a steal for this info!:cool:
