Zephyr Autos and Antique Zephyr Push Mower - Connection?

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I have a 1930's antique push lawn mower that has really cool wheels with 'hubcaps' that are shiny with the red Zephyr logo on them. Very curious if these are related to the actual automobile - the time period is the same. Appreciate any info or discussion. Thanks Much. 0S.JPG

Thanks much for the info. Would you happen to know if these caps were made for the push-mower specifically or if they are Zephyr auto caps attached to the push-mower?

No OR, no Lincoln Zephyr cars had hubcaps like that, the script is close to the LZ, but all Z hupcaps had both words and sometimes a V-12 written on them, they are nice, but unique I guess to your lawnmower, Rolf

i am sorry..call me a smart a..

the name "zephyr" was modern and attractive to the progressive

30's cutting edge prewar world.

Streamlining was high tech, zephyr has to do with wind..even

rolls smoothly when pronounced.

Trains, radios , fans , I have #2 pencils called zephyr..

I believe , c'mon rolf, help me here, the word zephyr is

a noun and not a trade mark..LINCOLN ZEPHYR is a trade mark..

Thanks for your knowledge friends. I am startring to think they must have been styled as a 'knock-off' of the automobile, with the red similar (but not the same as you have pointed out) looking logos with the long ends to letters.
