Classic Cars: Know Where to Look for Rust Before Buying

If you're thinking about buying a classic car, you should know where to look for rust and how extensive the repair might be.


Classic Car Overview

There was an absolute top-of-the-line domestic car for the discerning few in 1940, and this Lincoln-Zephyr Convertible Coupe is it. And this one represents the classic car lifestyle ideally today with a polished and authentic style everywhere from the deep black paint to the V12 under the hood. Edsel Ford rebelled against his fathers mass-market sensibilities by building a car for people in his substantial wealth class. He emphasized design, which means these first-generations show their boldness with sleek lines rather than adding chrome. This was the car he could have proudly driven in Europe with its waterfall grille, lowered stance, and deleted running boards. These were both beautiful and expensive, and so only about 700 examples were hand-built in 1940. But this one is a stunner for more than just rarity. The black paint is the quality of a later and professional application. So this sophisticated Lincoln-Zephyr has the gloss of a grand piano. And when you add in the chrome of the dual grilles, large bumpers, headlight surrounds, factory wheel covers, and all the trim, this is an artful total package. It even has all the right ornamentation like the whitewall tires, rear fender skirts, and exposed rear tire caddy that was so cleverly presented that it would become the Continentals namesake on other vehicles. The tan roof looks timeless against the black paint, and this has the right premium features, like a power operation and a glass rear window. But this look gets even better with the roof down. After all, the deep red interior against the glossy black unleashes more of the European flair. There is plenty of plush seating for family and friends, but you dont need any of them to have fun cruising. The dash is beautifully detailed, including the classic art deco-style AM radio still on display in the middle. So this 40s luxury machine really does keep a period-correct appearance. Even the steering wheel is correct as it reminds you about the superior powerhouse under the hood. One of the best perks of owning a well-presented first-generation is getting to lift the hood and seeing the Lincoln-Zephyr V12 in all its period-correct glory. We love how these are so long that they look like a Ford flathead on steroids. Plus, all the bolts, dual barrel downdraft carburetor, generator, correct hoses, oil bath air cleaner with correct decal, and much more all give this the kind of presentation where people will stop to point out the details. There is unmistakable power and poise from the dozen cylinders propelling this luxury machine forward. And you control its full force thanks to the three-speed all-synchromesh manual transmission. There are even four-wheel hydraulic brakes to give you classic but confident stopping. Rarity, beauty, and vintage elegance all come together on this drop-top. It will be hard to find one of the few remaining Lincoln-Zephyr Convertible Coupes that will be so easy to enjoy right now. Dont miss this opportunity. Call today!!!
