Lincoln Zephyr or Lincoln Zephyr Continental?. Other question: is the correct code for this 06H-54?

Is there a distinguishing feature between the Zephyr and the Zephyr Continental?

The rear of a white car is seen in the background in the opening credits. Is this the same Zephyr?

winstonwolf33, my question about Zephyr Continental was because from 1939 to 1941 the Lincoln convertibles we have are: 1939 Zephyr; 1940 Zephyr Continental and for 1941 Continental. The brochures I found for Lincoln 1940 say Zephyr but in the site /vehicles.php?resultsStyle=asImages&sortBy=2&yearFrom=1939&yearTo=1941&makeMatch=2&make=Lincoln&modelMatch=1&model=&modelInclModel=on&modelInclChassis=on&class3=3&origin=&madein=&madefor=&role= for that years range he have the classification I pointed before.

They substituted a '46-48 Mercury convertible for the Lincoln in the crash scene - worth a separate listing? There's also a "making of" short film that aired on TCM that showed an alternate take of the crash that used a '46-48 Ford; is that on the DVD extras? (sad they wasted TWO other vintage convertibles to spare one Continental!)

Here are thumbs showing the crash sequence. I added the Mercury to this movie page.

Yes - you really have to see the video, but the surround on the grille in the third shot pegs it as a Mercury. Notice they stuck the spare tire to the trunk lid to complete the illusion.

By the way, the Continental is a '41, not a '40 - it's got pushbuttons on the doors instead of the handles used in '40.

^No, 62imperial is correct; the pushbutton door releases were not introduced until 1941. The fact that it is also missing the hood ornament and several other trim pieces right at the prowl of the car would suggest a certain amount of customizing by an owner.
It's a 1941 Lincoln Continental type 56.
