1939 Lincoln Zephyr

Lightly restomodded 1939 Lincoln Zephyr for sale on Hemmings.com. From the seller’s description:
This example has been finished in black. The paint and bodywork were recently done to a high standard with solid, rust-free steel underneath. The undercarriage was restored as well.
The red leather interior has been restored with an Art Deco design that complements the streamlined exterior. A woodgrained dash frames the famous Lincoln Zephyr speedometer and waterfall. Other custom touches such as a JB Donaldson Co. steering wheel make this Zephyr unique.
The V12 engine has been rebuilt, bench-tested, and cosmetically restored with polished aluminum heads and a custom ceramic coated dual exhaust system. The 306 cubic inch engine has been bored to 310, and the tri-carb manifold holds three new Stromberg 97s that give this car increased horsepower and attitude. In addition, the engine has been mated to an automatic transmission for hassle-free drivability, along with hydraulic brakes for safety, modern 12 volt alternator and 12 volt high performance starter. Rebuilt rear end and rebuilt brakes with new drums and master cylinder. The stance of the car has been altered, but not at the expense of ride quality. The car has new custom designed 12 volt electrical system. Not only will you want to stare at it, you will actually want to drive it.
