I think that was in a big old museum/car collection that was recently sold off.

There was an article re this Zephyr in the Hemmings Daily newsletter on Thursday October 9. I tried without success to load the link. Interesting car.

No disrespect to anyone, but it reminds me of those two-headed calves you sometime see.

I looked it over at Hershey. Other than the goofy front end it's just a crusty old Lincoln.

Some people think having large breasts makes a woman stupid. Actually, it's quite the opposite. A woman having large breasts makes men stupid and hence the ugly Zephyr!

I saw that several years ago while on a private tour of Mr Hartung's collection.

The car was part of the Hartung auction sale in Glenview, IL. It had been sitting for a long time but was all there. It had some other Morrison trim features as I remember. He designed front end treatments for Lincolns and Packards. I do not know how many were sold.

Morrison was an inventor, reputed locally to have invented the deep freeze. The house we live in is on some property he once owned.
