Cool Classic Cars – the 1941 LINCOLN ZEPHYR – at our classic car shop in Florida
We’ve seen a lot of cool cars come through our classic car restoration shop over the last 34 years, but the Lincoln Zephyr is definitely one of the coolest.
With extremely modernized features the Lincoln Zephyr was a low-range mid-size luxury car, falling under the line of Lincoln series. It bridged the gap between cars like Ford’s V-8 De Luxe line and the Lincoln K-series.
Here’s an old Ford TV commercial for the 1941 Lincoln Ford…
The term ‘zephyr’ was given in reference to the greek god of wind ‘zephyrus’. From 1941 model year all Lincolns were Zephyr-based.
Designed by Eugene Turenee Greogrie and conceived by Edsel Ford preserved one of its unique class.
It became one of the most successful streamlined cars.

The Zephyr was equipped with integrated fenders and an aerodynamically streamlined design. The Lincoln Zephyr although had a lower coefficient drag than the airflow, but the front grille on the Zephyr reflected the popularity of leisure speedboats.
Though in the later years the Lincoln adapted mostly the Zephyr-based cars which reignited the sales at Lincoln dealerships. Post World War II Lincoln halted the production of Zephyr, the cars were no longer called Zephyr but only Lincoln.
In order to fill up the gap Lincoln introduced various other models in the line of modern luxury cars. Some of them are the ’50 Lincoln Lido, ’77 Lincoln Versailles, ’82 Lincoln Continental and 2000 Lincoln LS.
The Zephyr was boosted with small V12 engines. From ’36 to ’39 it had 267 cu in (4.4L) with hydraulic lifters added later. Modification were also made post period. The 40s models used 292 cu in (4.8L) engine followed by 306 cu in (5.0L) engines till the year 1946. Till 1938 Lincoln used cable-activated brakes but later introduced the hydraulic ones.
The ’41 models were available as Sedan, Coupe, Club Coupe and Convertible Coupe.
