    Sign-up: 1947 Lincoln Zephyr Coupe Detailing Class - Thursday, December 15th

    Sign-up: 1947 Lincoln Zephyr Coupe Detailing Class - Thursday, December 15th



    Thursday, December 15th starting at 5:00pm at Autogeek's Show Car Garage!



    I've never seen one of these before and I definitely have never worked on one of these before...


    1947 Lincoln Zephyr Coupe













    This is a streetrod. It's sitting on a 1977 Monte Carlo frame and running gear, so small block 350 Chevy engine and turbo 350 automatic transmission.


    The owner says she's all swirled out and does NOT pass the Baggie Test.

    Re: One of the strangest looking cars?

    Hey Mike, how's it going? Just curious, how do you find these cars that you wind up working on? Or how do they find you? Is it just through meeting people at carshows and such? Or is the criteria much more complicated than that?

    I'd have to say the strangest looking car I can think of is a Ford Edsel.

    Unique, I like it. Front end is a tad busy, but the side profile and rear have great lines. And it's got GM bones and heart.

    I wish Chevy or Ford would make a very limited production hot rod. Similar to the SSR, but with more traditional hot rod styling.

    Like the Chrysler Prowler?

    Oh and there's no way a Lincoln has a GM heart. Just sayin. Lol.

    Actually I shouldn't say that... Because technically Lincolns do have a GM heart. More specifically a Cadillac heart. That's because Henry Leland, the man who formed Lincoln Motor Company, had been a former manager of the Cadillac division of General Motors prior to starting Lincoln.

    Wow!
    I've been a hotrod fan since the 60's and never remember seeing a Zephyr from the postwar era. Doesn't have near the character of the same brand in the prewar days, but still cool. IIRC Mike, didn't you once work on Terry Cook's "Scrape" 40 Zephyr?
    Eldo, leave it to you to bring up the Leland point. Can't say this for sure, but IIRC, when Henry Ford wanted to get into luxury cars, he stole one of Cadillac's principals to head up the Division.

    Needs the MP touch. That hood ornament looks like a Chevy.

    Nice! Cool old Car.

    And I'll bet the front end chrome weighs more than a Prius.
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    I have great relationships with our local car guys... this particular car belongs to my friend Mike Gelter. Mike buys and sells hotrods. He tends to buy hotrods that need help. He fixes them and then flips them. He's real good at it and when I need a car for a class he usually had one or two that need polishing.

    I would go as far as to say it's ugly. It's fun to add more cars to the list of cars I've worked on in my life or used for a class and this one is unique for sure.

    Definitely rare as I've never seen one until this one.

    That's how I felt when I was a kid growing up. Seems like back then and even now most cars pretty much look the same.

    It's different that's for sure.

    Yes. I buffed this car out about a half dozen times when I worked for the Absorber company and toured the car show circuit with Terr Cook and his creation "Scrape".

    Wrote an article about it here,


    Scrape, Terry Cook, Chip Foose, Christoper Titus and the Titanic


    This is me hand applying Meguiar's Medallion to Scrape at the Tacoma Roadster Show (I think)
