Lincoln Zephyrs highlight Bonhams’ Amelia Island auction

3 Lincoln Zephyrs will appear at Bonhams. With styling by Bob Gregorie – who started his career as a yacht designer before joining Ford – the Zephyr is considered by many to be a standout of the Art Deco era.

The “baby” Lincolns became remarkable when Lincoln offered them with powerful V12 engines. Three 12-cylinder Zephyr coupes, from 1939, 1940 and 1942, will be auctioned without reserve during Bonhams’ sale March 8 on Amelia Island in Florida.
