1937 Lincoln MKZ/Zephyr

This is a very nice 1937 Lincoln Zephyr 4 Door Sedan. Thiscar was purchased from a little old lady in a small town here in Texas. The car has the 267.5 CID V-12 engine that runs great with the 3 Spd Transmission. It came with an optional gas heater and factory radio. The car had a restoration completed in the 1990's and has some good quality work and some not so good quality work. The glass is in good shape but has some scratches on some of it from sanding. There are 2 very minor cracks that are not verynoticeable. The car has all new wiring from front to back and all new weather stripping. The interior was completely redone in a factorystitching and similar cloth. this includes carpet headliner door panels kick panels seats and firewall. All the Chrome wasreplayed and looks very nice. The paint job was of a poor quality. There is orange peel in the paint with buffing compound in the microscopic pits giving it a slight whitish fading when the light hits it just the right way. It does give it a bit of a vintage patina. I have found that if i use a liquid wax it diminishes this fading. there are also some very minor dings here and there. The doors hood and trunk open and close very well and lock appropriately. All the locks work well including the door trunk and glove box. I have replaced the fuel sending unit and battery very recently. All the gauges work along with the speedometer. I believe that the engine was gone through in the 90's and runs very well. it is painted in the original color and detailed nicely. This car only needs detailing to be very nice but you can enjoy it just as it is.I drive this car a lot. Sometimes every day for periodsand at least several times a week. The oil pressure always reads 50 pounds for the first 10 minutes then it goes down to 20. After it gets tooperating temp it will go lower at an idle but while driving it stays around 15. The Zephyr owners have told me that this is typical and that a high volume oil pump willalleviate that. The oil float needs to be replaced and I have the new float and gaskets to fix it. This car still has themechanical brakes and the work great. Ican even lock the wheels up if I need to stop quickly. The radiator is also the original non pressurized type. As a result I will sometimes have to put water in it after a longer drive.This is a very nice car that you can have fun with now. This turns heads everywhere I go in it and it is a very unique car that you do not see much of around the shows.Please ask any questions before bidding or call me at 7one3-99two-one086.Thanks Michael
