Default 1938 Lincoln Zephyr Prestige Sales Brochure




I have this 1938 Lincoln Zephyr Prestige Sales Brochure in my collection, however, page 3-4 is missing. Would any Ford Barner have this Brochure in their collection?
What I need is a Scan in High Resolution of Page 3 (I managed to get a Scan of the reverse side of this page, which shows the Convertible Sedan, as shown).
Can anyone help me out? Regards Mercman <><

If you haven't done so already you might want to Google search the phrase "The New Lincoln Zephyr V12 for 1938" to see what happens.

Regarding my 1938 Lincoln Zephyr Sales Brochure that was Printed in the USA, I originally thought that it had 20 pages. I have since learnt that my Brochure should have 24 pages. This page with the Convertible Sedan is actually page 6, not page 4 as initially thought. It seems that a previous owner removed the whole page 3-4 and 21-22, plus tore out page 5-6. On that basis, I need good scans of 5 pages. Pages 3, 4, 5, 21 and 22. Can anyone help me out?

I met a "kid" in the late 60s who played C C R musiic in a small band and drove a 38 Zepher coupe. Bought it from the original owner & drove it everywhere, even in snowy northern Ohio weather. He talked about that car more than anything else. Wonder where ti ended up.......

I love the looks of the Zepher coupe. There’s a guy here in town that has a 37&38 coupes. Beautiful lines.

Did anyone pick up on the two different Miles per Gallon achieved. In one, it lists 16 to 20 Miles per Gallon and in the other 14 to 18 Miles per Gallon. The First Illustration was in the Brochure produced for the USA Market and the Gallons are the USA Gallons. The second Illustration was in the Brochure produced for New Zealand, a country, like Australia that has the Imperial Gallon. For instance, in the USA, you have a 50 Gallon Drum. The same Drum is used in Australia and is listed at 44 Imperial Gallons. That is why the mileages mentioned are different.
