1948 Lincoln Zephyr Convertible - $5800 - Maine - Project  

https://maine.craigslist.org/cto/d/shapleigh-1948-lincoln-zephyr/7148892354.html#

Original V12 motor. Car runs beautifully. Have many extra parts. Would make a great restoration project. Can hear it run when you come up.

I have no personal interest or stake in the eventual sale of this 1948 Lincoln 'Zephyr' convertible. 

Note: 1946-'48 non-Continental Lincolns were no longer promoted as Zephyrs through were continuation of that series in all but name.   Production numbers for these is unknown, but they're survival rate is extremely low.  Ironically, there are likely twenty restored 1946-'48 Lincoln Continental cabriolets for every one of these in any condition.

My favorite car is the '40-'41 Continental Cabriolet, but I think I prefer the Zephyr in the postwar years.  Neat car!  The weird half (three-quarters?) of me would buy it, spiff up the interior a bit, get a set of tires, make sure it's safe, and drive it around as-is.  It probably deserves a restoration, but beaters like that call out to me loudly.

Take a closer look at the color of the cowl, which is the original body color, its a silver-gray metallic.  With a dark green interior and black top, that was one striking Lincoln convertible new.

1936-'48 Lincoln semi-unit-bodies were painted uniformly throughout the outside body color including the cowls, which are rarely color changed during subsequent resprays.

The silver gray color looks like a spray bomb done to the firewall.  Looks like they hit everything.
