Formerly of the Warshawsky and Gen. Lyon collections, this elegant Lincoln Model K is one of just two known examples to feature this exquisite Panel Brougham coachwork by Willoughby.
Serial number K8376 is one of just two known survivors to wear this magnificent body style, and it was once part of the illustrious collection of J.C. Whitney founder Roy Warshawsky, who had a particular fondness for Lincoln automobiles. The magnificent restoration was performed by the highly regarded Rick Kriss, and the car scored a Best in Class at the 1988 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance as well as an AACA National First Prize in the same year. Following the dispersing of Warshawsky’s collection, this Lincoln was acquired by Dr. Joseph Murphy of Pennsylvania, who sold it two years later to the renowned collector, General William Lyon. The stately Lincoln remained a fixture of Gen. Lyon’s collection for a decade before joining the most recent owner’s stable of important Full Classic automobiles in 2008.
This wonderful Willoughby-bodied Lincoln remains in beautiful condition, clearly having benefitted from years of expert care in the hands of several renowned collectors. The black paint befits the razor-edge styling beautifully, and it remains in excellent condition with just the slightest hint of patina beginning to appear. CLICK to read more
