    In my wildest dreams did I ever think I would own a Zephyr. That's what I thought when I picked up my 40 3window. Now I just acquired this beautiful 38 coupe with tons of potential. She was sitting George "dutch" Fuchs Jr collection. Which now his family is selling off all his cars.
    So she will be next project to start, I will keep you Posted!!!!!!!!!!!

    Stunning.....that is an amazing car.
     
  13. I had a friend who passed away last year that had a '38 coupe and believe it or not the color was very similar,,he had a 289 Ford and a automatic transmission in the car.

    I road in the coupe several times over the years and sitting in the passenger seat was like sitting on the couch at home...the car was comfortable & roomy.

    Congratulations on a great find. HRP

    Nice car !!.... minimal fixin' and she'll road-worthy

    Interesting shifter gate; is that part of the shifting rod just barely visible under the dash?, how does it all work ?

  25. Awesome car and that one seems very nice condition. One of the best designs for making a custom.

    Gatz, the shifter wraps around and shifts the trans on the side, instead of a top shifter with basically straight lever like a Ford coupe has. All this to allow that center waterfall dash.
