1935→1939 Lincoln Model K

1939 Lincoln Model K Brunn Convertible Victoria K9503 – did not sell for $110,000. Chassis K9503 is one of only two examples built of the highly attractive $5,800 Model 408 Brunn Convertible Victoria. Its large proportions on the 136-inch wheelbase allow room for five passengers and causes it to weigh in at almost three tons.

This older restoration is finished in a period-correct dark blue lacquer. Options include dual side-mounts with full metal covers and mirrors, bumper guards, Trippe lights, steel artillery wheels wearing wide whitewalls and a folding trunk rack as well as a period trunk. It resided in long-term ownership until being purchased by its current owner several years ago, who has driven it sparingly and maintained it in climate-controlled storage. After being refurbished by its previous owner, it was responsibly enjoyed as evidenced by wear to the engine bay, underside and light wear to the brown leather upholstery and cloth top. The chrome appears to have been re-plated at the time of restoration and has now respectfully aged with the rest of the car. It remains sound throughout and will make a distinctive high-quality tourer on leisurely weekend jaunts or CCCA CARavans. Auction Source: Amelia Island 2012 by RM Auctions
