The all new and modern-looking 1936 Lincoln Zephyr designed by Eugene Gregorie was introduced early in November of 1935. Powered by a new 276 c.i. V-12 L-head engine that produces 110 h.p. the Zephyr featuring streamlined unibody construction bridged the gap between the Ford and the Lincoln Model K. Earlier design studies by John Tjaarda influenced Gregorie’s design. Fifteen-thousand of the popular four-door sedan and coupe models were produced in the first year of the Zephyr’s four year production run.
Today’s image dated 1936 shows an introduction of the new Zephyr and Model K Lincolns at the clubhouse of the Pinehurst Country Club established in 1895, located in Pinehurst, North Carolina. View three earlier posts featuring classic cars at the Country Club’s Polo Matches in the early-1930s.
