It was a cloudy day when I took this picture. I was really intrigued by the way the sky looked in the reflection. The car was polished so perfectly, it looked like glass. In the trunk you can see me with my three kids, I am wearing a hat and my elbows are out because I am holding the camera to take the photo. You can also see the electricity poles and wires. There was a speaker on one of them playing 1950's music.
The Lincoln-Zephyr is a marques that was used for the lower-priced line of mid-size luxury cars in the Lincoln line from 1936 until 1940. Lincoln-Zephyr and Mercury, introduced in 1939, bridged the wide gap between Ford's V-8 De Luxe line and the exclusive Lincoln K-series cars. This served a purpose similar to Cadillac's smaller LaSalle "companion car", the Chrysler Airstream, and Packard's smallest offering, the Packard One-Twenty. The car was conceived by Edsel Ford and designed by Eugene Turenne Gregorie. The Zephyr was unique in this class having a V-12, while the LaSalle had a V8 engine, and the Chrysler and Packard has straight 8 engines.
Lincoln-Zephyr V-12 (1936–1940)
For 1936, available as two-door sedan or four-door sedan, a locking glove box was standard. Radio was optional. The turning radius was 22 feet (6.7 m). For 1937 the 2-door Sedan was renamed Coupe-Sedan, a Coupe (3-Window) was added along with a formal Town-Limousine. For 1938 a Convertible Coupe and a Convertible Sedan was added. For 1940 the Coupe-Sedan was replaced by the Club Coupe, the Convertible Sedan was discontinued. Trunk space was increased in 1940.
Lincoln-Zephyr Continental (1940) was the first time the name Continental appeared on a car from Lincoln, as a model under Lincoln-Zephyr rather than a separate model. They were partially hand-built since dies for machine-pressing were not constructed until 1941. Production started on December 13, 1939, with the Continental Cabriolet, from June 1940 also available as Continental Club Coupe. Just 350 Cabriolets and 54 Club Coupes were built.
