0 Comments

Many praise the Lincoln Zephyr as one of the first successful vehicles of the 20th century, because compared to many other models of the time, it had a relatively long lifespan. Needless to say, it was a car ahead of its time. 

The Birth of the Lincoln-Zephyr Coupe

Lincoln released the Zephyr in 1936, as they knew that they needed a mid-size luxury sedan that more people could afford. The Zephyr name came from the Greek god Zephyrus, or the “king of the wind”, as the car had an incredibly aerodynamic design. 

Technology and Innovations of the Lincoln-Zephyr Coupe

While Lincoln transferred the Zephyr over from the Lincoln Motor Company to the Lincoln Division to produce heritage models until 1948, the last true Lincoln Zephyr models were made in 1940. These vehicles featured a 4.8L V-12 engine. Only 54 Club Coupe and 350 Cabriolets were ever made. 

A Timeline of the Lincoln-Zephyr Coupe (1936-1940)
