1941 Lincoln Custom Twelve news, pictures, and information
Chassis Num: 168H32209
|Sold for $46,750 at 2011 RM Auctions.|
Lincoln offered just one engine across its lineup for 1941. All Lincoln models were powered by a 75-degree, L-head, V-12 that displaced 292 cubic-inches and produced 120 horsepower. It was mated to a three-speed sliding gear transmission with column shift controls. Braking was provided by internal expanding Bendix Hydraulic brakes at all four corners.
The Lincoln Custom Twelve obtained a level of luxury and exclusivity known to elite automobiles. Just 355 examples of the sedan and 295 example of the limousine were produced.
This example was acquired by the current owner in 2005 and has been completely restored to high standards. It is painted in the original Spode Green color and has a tan whipcord interior, front and rear, and the power division window. The rear compartment has two jump seats, each with a corresponding foot rest, and there are three separate hot-water heaters, providing both passenger and chauffeur comfort.
In 2011, the car was offered for sale at the St. John auction presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $40,000 - $60,000. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $46,750 inclusive of buyer's premium.
