This rare and sporting Lincoln KA has been maintained and progressively restored by Lincoln specialists since Jacques Passey acquired it in the late 50's in return for a week's work driving a bulldozer for its construction contractor-owner. One of only 85 built with this attractive, compact open coachwork by Murray, it marks the replacement of the long-lived V-8 designed by Henry Leland with Lincoln's own small (if 382 cubic inches and 125hp could be considered "small") L-head 67 degree V-12 in the KA series. Built on a 136" wheelbase and equipped with Trippe lights, dual fabric covered side-mounted spares with mirrors, wide whitewall tires on body color wire wheels, a luggage rack, rumble seat, Trippe auxiliary lights and 3-position soft top; it is the essence of sporting elegance from the Thirties. Unlike many automobiles of its era and quality it has never had, nor needed, a complete restoration, instead having its needs attended to by a succession of caring owners who have looked after its driveline, chrome, paint, upholstery, top and chassis as needed. During its most recent ownership the rear axle was fitted with high speed gears to facilitate relaxed cruising at modern highway speeds. Impressively detailed and maintained, this is an outstanding acquisition for anyone seeking a quality, luxurious, sporting convertible with rollup windows for tours, event and shows.
