I need to change the oil on my 40 zephyr after several years of storage. How much does it hold?

Hi Gary, glad to hear you are going to get that magnificent '40 club coupe running at last, I am ashamed to admit that I do not rememember the oil capacity of a V-12, I think it was 5 quarts, but can't remember if it took another quart for an oil filter or not, I suggest that you buy 6 quarts of oil, preferably non-detergent 30 weight, put in 4 quarts, watch your oil gauge, if it shows full, and you have an oil filter, add another, and go for it, the purists used to clean out the oil filter cannister first with a suction gun, and wipe it clean, so the old oil did not contaminate the clean, really hope it runs as great as you remember it did long ago, V-12's are mystical, good luck
