1932 Lincoln Model KB
|Model History||Auction sales research||Specifications||Body styles and Chassis Data|
The Lincoln automobiles were stylish and luxurious with many receiving custom bodies from some of the era's greatest coachbuilders including Waterhouse, LeBaron, Dietrich, Judkins, and Willoughby. Many of the creations were unique and built specifically for the customer. The most popular designs were group ordered by Lincoln and made available to a wider selection of buyers. This decreased the delivery time while maintaining a high level of quality. The bodies were built in advance with some available to customers to be trimmed to their exact specifications.
This 1932 Lincoln Model KB Sport Coupe shown with chassis number KB998 has coachwork by Judkins and was displayed in Automobile Quarterly in 1978. The interior is cloth with a Philco Transistone Radio and a Waltham electric clock. The exterior is just as extravagant with a rumble seat, luggage rack, and leather roof.
It was estimated to fetch between $125,000 - $150,000 at the 2006 RM Auction in Meadow Brook. A high bid of $90,000 was not able to satisfy the reserve and the car remained unsold.

The body and wheels are painted the correct color of Jade Mist with the fenders, moldings and upper panels in 'Birmingham Green.' The interior is Weese Bedford whip cloth (code W-1902). The car selling price was $5,415.
