Introduced in 1931, the Lincoln Model K represented a dramatic leap for Lincoln from the Henry Leland-designed Model L V-8 that had been its powerplant from the marque's inception. Its V-12 layout put Lincoln firmly in contention in the early Thirties' cylinder wars. Displacing 384 cubic inches, the Model K grew with competition to 1935's 414 cubic inches and 150 horsepower, a rating that was less important than the 4 1/2 inch stroke V-12's torque and smooth power delivery that suited its luxurious coachwork from Lincoln, Judkins, Willoughby, Brunn and LeBaron. Its refinement and performance made Lincolns the favorites of coachbuilders' who could cosset their clients in solid, quiet bodies lavishly trimmed and equipped, like this 1936 Lincoln Model K Town Car with coachwork by the highly regarded firm of Hermann Brunn & Company in Buffalo, New York. Finished in lovely maroon with gold coachlining, it has a black leather padded roof and black leather folding tendelet over the chauffeur's compartment. The rear compartment is upholstered in tan cloth and equipped with a rollup division window, jump seats, privacy shades on the rear and side windows, a clock and robe rail. The exterior is distinguished by dual enclosed sidemounts with mirrors, a trunk rack and wide whitewall tires on body color wheels with hubcaps and trim rings. It is a good older restoration, has lots of interior room and a refined, distinguished presence that speaks eloquently of luxury, prestige and importance. It runs and drives well and will be a proud addition to any collection.
