1939 Lincoln Zephyr

There’s just something about cars from the 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s that’s magical. Seeing those cars today makes one think about a time when life was less complicated, when automotive innovation actually meant something, and when the spirit of the open road was alive and well here in the United States. The 1939 Lincoln Zephyr is one of those cars and when viewed in person the only thing it evokes is pure emotion. Today’s automobiles, while packed with reliability and technology simply don’t, in my opinion, possess the same amount of style and flare that their bygone brothers do. It’s a shame really, but in a society where cost is key and styling is secondary, automotive manufacturers really have no choice but to compromise on everything. That’s where custom shops like Regal Roadsters of Madison, WI come into play. These guys recently took the aforementioned 1939 Lincoln Zephyr and get this… fitted it with an Aston Martin V12 engine, full airbag suspension and Magnaflow exhaust. We think the result is simply stunning, but just to make sure click play on the video and decide for yourself.

    Beautiful vehicle. The video is shot/edited like the begining of some new HBO drama series. I would have liked to see more screen time dedicated to the actual craftsmanship, including the interior. The video theme, including the music, has an “old style” feel, except for the random asian guy with sunglasses and a beanie @ 2:15, chewing gum like a jackass.
    Regal Roadsters obviously put much time into the production of this custom, showcasing that a little more would have been better in my opinion.
