There was what looked like a pretty nice Zephyr sold on eBay recently for $16K. Very reasonable, in my uneducated opinion.

What's so taboo about asking what someone paid for something? I'd tell if anyone asked what I paid for mine.I was curious what a Zephyr in that shape goes for. Thanks Mhsprecher.

Thanks Lanny. Thats why I asked. I thought a Zephyr would cost more than that. Now days it all about the money or lack there of.

Hey Fibber, if you want to get a better idea of what Lincoln Zephyr's are selling for, check out www.lzoc.org. Keep in mind that (as with most cars) ForDor Sedans bring the least money. Where Zephyr's are concerned, because they could be considered low production vehicles, even ForDor Sedans will fetch a nice price.

NOT mine, but this decent looking, roadworthy '37 Zep has been for sale in Michigan for several months at $23K. Click the link! DD

Wow that is quite a retrieval. Good to see some of that old iron getting back into circulation.

There was a fella with one around here a year or so ago, he made a few small shows. It was for sale, if memory serves, he was asking $30K for it but I can't remember what year it was, I'm thinking '39. I haven't seen it yet this year.

Any idea where to get key or code to find a trunk key, had lock smith here today and could not pick and turn lock handle. I found that on a 40 Ford coupe the key turns clockwise and the handle counter-clockwise. Took back seat out and found a steel X-brace with card board. There is no way to reach anything if I cut out one space in card board. Let me know if you know of a solution, thanks Bruce

Bruce, start up a new post...there is at least one FordBarn member who is a locksmith, and may be able to help...he may not read all the threads, but asking specifically for locksmithing...might catch his (or other who know him) eye.

Bruce. you may find the needed key information by calling the Benson Ford Research Center in Dearborn, Michigan at 313-976-6070. They have many prewar Lincoln production record cards and might still have your car on file. The production record card has the key numbers for the ignition and trunk keys plus info on your car the day it was made in 1939. The center will send you a sheet outlining original paint, interior, etc. Cost is I believe $20.00. Well worth the cost. The LZOC website has info on the service also. Click on the "car labeled FAQ" on their masthead. Well worth joining their club also which is for the Lincoln V-12's from 1936 thru 1948. Good luck Zephyring.

Flex37 (Jonathan) owner said that in 1982 the 7:00 X 16 Coker tires were new! I will look for the dot number and check, car was in a totally dark stall, no windows. Want to see how they drive in a month or so after I go through engine. ( fuel pump, carb, distributor, water pumps, spark plug wires, coil, gas tank and most important BRAKES )

Next, just this week I installed the 34 wood grain work you did at Honest Charley's. ( had to wait for the new chrome windshield) I have been jumping between work, 39 I brought home Saturday and the 34.

itsa52, have a big list, big black book, need funds, if will advance me some green backs, I will post more cars, thanks

Don't know where California came from, I live in OHIO, picked up in Pennsylvania? Now I did get a PM from ( fordbarn locksmith ) Phil said to remove glove box lock and it should be same as trunk, I will send him information and cut a key for me to try to unlock trunk, also will contact the other leads I received. Tomorrow fuel pump off and take apart and place new parts in pump, also need the flex gas line, lots to do.

One more possible option. Ford products usually matched the glove box lock to the trunk lock. If your glovebox is in the unlocked position, the lock assembly can be removed and dis-assembled. The key code is stamped on the cylinder. I and others on the Ford Barn can then cut you a key to code. It would very likely work in the trunk handle.
