After years of dreaming I have finally bought a Lincoln Zephyr. I have always wanted a 3 window coupe (haven't we all) but the price has always been out of my reach when they turned up. I have missed out on two rough bodyshells in the Hamb classifieds, mainly because I had no idea about shipping costs etc (I am in the uk). Well this time things all planned out my way. I have been watching this Zephyr for about a year as it was advertised all over the forums and on ebay. It to was out of my price range, even considering how rough it is. The price however slowly came down to a level that I could almost afford. I had just finished rebuilding a mates 38 chevy pickup when the price was dropped again. So with money from the truck rebuild I contacted the seller sorted transport to the docks and the shipping and struck a deal. A lot of you guys will probably think I am mad for buying this but its a dream I have, its all I could afford at the time and they don't turn up all that often, and I'm not getting any younger. Here's a link to the ad in the classifieds http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=670501&highlight=lincoln+zephyr The deal was struck with the seller keeping the stock V12 and radiator. It was only good for parts anyway. I have a french flathead here that should bolt straight up to the stock box. I intend this to become a daily driver when it is done. Plan is to fabricate all new floors, rockers, door skins and frames, go through the steering and brakes (will probably go hydraulic eventually) and get it on the road and registered as quickly as possible. Then I will work on it at my own leisure. The laws are changing so much over here I think its best to get it registered asap. I no doubt I will be asking a few questions in the future. I should be collecting it from the docks on Friday. Then I will be able to see just what I have bought. Paul.
