A tan Lincoln ‘Zephyr’ Coupe with brown wings, a low silver radiator and black wheels. 1948-1950.

The colour scheme identifies the model as a post-war version.

Modelled on the Lincoln-Zephyr V-12, a roomy saloon car capable of respectable performance.

Lincoln-Zephyr

Lincoln became part of the Ford empire in 1922.

Lincoln-Zephyr was Lincoln’s marque for their lower priced luxury vehicles. Lincoln, themselves a division of Ford, produced vehicles under the marque from 1936-1940. The marque was notable for introducing the first commercially successful streamlined cars. After the failure of the similar Chrysler Airflow there was cause to suspect the prospects of a streamlined vehicle, but the Lincoln Zephyr dramatically surpassed Chrysler's attempt along with any other vehicles previously produced by Lincoln.
