The fabulously engineered and assembled Lincoln KB was introduced in 1932, a serious contender in the contest of 12- and 16-cylinder automobiles then consuming luxury manufacturers. Its V-12 engine had fork-and-blade connecting rods which permitted the separately cast cylinder blocks to be placed directly opposite each other on the light alloy crankcase and shortened the forged seven main bearing crankshaft. The 448 cubic inch engine produced 150 horsepower. Bendix Duo-Servo 4-wheel mechanical drum brakes matched its urge. Unfortunately the Great Depression was approaching its depths and the expensive Lincoln KB was offered for only two years, making them one of the rarest of all the great Classics. This 1932 Lincoln KB is one of 24 built in the Seven-Passenger Sport Touring style, a design that accommodates comfort, generous interior accommodations and a crisp, attractive. It was discovered in the 1970's in Jamaica and restored by Rick Kriss in 1975-6. The body framework was meticulously replaced and the quality of the workmanship and materials is apparent in its present condition which except for some paint checking belies the age of the restoration. Finished in maroon with a darker maroon beltline and silver coachlining and upholstered in tan leather with a matching tan cloth top, its equipment is lavish, including dual windshields, arc-shaped wind wings front and rear, body colored wire wheels with wide whitewalls, dual side-mounted spare wheels and tires, forward-facing jump seats, greyhound radiator mascot, a trunk rack, tan top boot and a handsomely grained rear seat switch panel with courtesy light. The driver's compartment is highlighted by a handsome engine turned instrument panel in a discrete black painted dashboard. It has been freshly detailed, wet-sanded, buffed and re-striped by hand. A CCCA Full Classic, it is both distinctive and rare and offers its owner the opportunity to participate with pride and confidence in a wide array of events, tours and shows secure in the knowledge that this Lincoln KB Seven-Passenger Sport Touring is matched or exceeded by few in the array of great 12- and 16-cylinder classic cars.
