This car was one of only nine Model KB Lincolns built in 1932 to this beautiful two-passenger coupe design by the John B. Judkins Company, of Merrimac, Massachusetts. According to surviving factory records, copies of which are on file, this particular Coupe was Lincoln’s 1932 salon exhibition car, and it had been displayed at the automobile salons held that year in major American cities. It was finished on December 27, 1932, and it is believed to have been shown at the Drake Hotel in Chicago, the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles, and the Palace Hotel in San Francisco as part of its nationwide tour.
Then, as now, the car’s body and wheels were finished in Jade Mist, with Birmingham Green fenders, moldings, and upper panels and silver striping. The top was trimmed in leather to match the Birmingham Green, and the interior was upholstered in Wiese Bedford Cord cloth. Interestingly, when new, this Lincoln was priced at $5,415, which was $500 more than the most expensive factory body.
A later owner acquired the car, still in its original and unrestored condition, in the early 1990s, and after researching and verifying its history with archivists at the Henry Ford, he undertook a ground-up restoration to the highest of standards, finishing the car in the original salon colors and trim. The car went on to earn a Classic Car Club of America Premier award, and it has continued to be shown enthusiastically by its present caretaker, achieving award-winning results. It has been well-preserved and carefully maintained, and although an obvious concours competitor, it would also make a superb car for CCCA CARavans and other long-distance touring events.
This spectacular Lincoln is one of a few surviving original salon display cars. It has style, power, and rich history in equal measure.
