1932 Lincoln Model KB Berline Two-Window

According to factory records, this vehicle, KB1644, has custom coachwork by Judkins Company of Amesbury, Massachusetts. The aluminum body was built as the Salon exhibition car and was displayed at the Drake Hotel in Chicago, the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles and the Palace Hotel in San Francisco. From this actual display car, only six total orders were received by Lincoln, who forwarded the color and prospective owner's option specifications to Judkins Company for production. During restoration, the body and wheels were refinished in the original color of Jade Mist, the fenders, moldings and upper panels in Birmingham Green and pinstripe in silver, the interior is duplicated in Wiese Bedford Cord cloth.

The Lincoln custom line of vehicles was usually assigned the largest of chassis and motors. The engine is a 448 cubic-inch, fork and blade V-12 producing 150 horsepower with separate cylinder blocks and was an engineering masterpiece in the multi-cylinder race with Packard and Cadillac. This motor is coupled to a three-speed transmission with integral free-wheeling. This vehicle has a wheelbase of 145 inches with four-wheel vacuum assisted servo mechanical drum brakes and tips the scale at over six-thousand pounds.
