1936 Lincoln Model K Series 300 Vehicle Profile

Convertible Victoria
Coachwork: Brunn
The Lincoln Motor Company was in bankruptcy when Henry Ford purchased it from Henry Leland. This was a triumph for Ford since Leland led a group that had ousted Ford from the first Henry Ford Company and renamed the company Cadillac. Edsel Ford took a personal interest in the company and introduced several stylish models.

Despite a deepening economic depression in the United States the Lincoln Motor Company continued to design and build outstanding luxury automobiles. One of the company's most handsome designs was the convertible Victoria, designed and built by Brunn of Buffalo, New York. Ten were built in 1936.

Lincolns were available on two wheelbases for 1936 - 136 and 145 inches. All were powered by Lincoln's own 414 cubic-inch twelve cylinder motor that developed 150 horsepower.

Interestingly, the Lincoln-Zephyr was introduced in 1936, as a more affordable alternative to the expensive 'senior' Lincoln. It was a sales success. In 1936 only 1,515 'big Lincolns' were sold. By 1940 it was gone, replaced by the Lincoln-Zephyr.

Bodies for the various configurations were supplied by different suppliers and Edsel preferred specific types from specific vendors. The body for the convertible Victoria was supplied by Brunn & Co. of Buffalo, New York. The 1936 version was the first year for pontoon style fenders. In keeping with the streamlining styling which was popular, the car also features a 27-degree raked windshield, lowered headlights and a lower profile roof.

This Lincoln was custom ordered by Mr. H.F. Johnson of the Johnson & Johnson Co. The body was made from white ash and paneled in aluminum with steel front cowl and a brass windshield. It is the fifth body of ten produced and is one of three known to still exist.

A complete restoration was recently completed on this Convertible Victoria.
