This 1938 Still has Original Paint, nterior. This 1938 Lincoln Zephyr 3 window was part of theGeorge “Dutch” Fuchs car collection. When George died the cars were sold off. I added this car to my Zephyr collection in the thought of customizing her, ntil I got her home and noticed right away how Original and perfect patina she has. It would be a shamefor me to cut this car, o I'm selling Her before I do. She is now part of a 40 car + Car Collection and is looking for a new home.
The motor has been replaced with a rebuilt 1938 Lincoln v12, nd comes with the matching number original 1938 motor( thats in running condition ).She has had theRadiator Boiled out,pressuretested, nd repaired. Gas tankBoiled out, ressure tested and repaired.Had the Brakescompletely gone thru, rakes cleaned drums turned, ew asbestos brake lining done right, he stops on a dime for bendex brakes. New clutch and throw out bearing.
The motor was fully rebuilt 5 years ago and was justrecently installed into the car last year. Carb, enerator,distributor, oil, ater pumps were rebuilt at the same time. a 6v electric fuel pump was installed to prime system with a pull switch on dash. Motor runs very strong and no smoking or over heating. She runs great Thru all her gears. she has a lite lifter tap from sitting but is slowly going away. Will need a quick tune up from sitting. Carb wascompletelyrebuilt. Also comes with the original v12 that is just getting a little tired but runs good. I replaced thinking I would be driving her all the time. Carb needs a littletweaking but runs like a sewing machine. At one time this zephyr had aColumbia rear end, hich was removed for a standard axle. The pump and lines are still installed if you want to go that route.
