Lincoln Model K 7-Passenger Limousine
The completely new Lincoln Model K was produced for only the 1931-model year. Its refined 385-cubic inch V-8 featured increased compression and downdraft carburetion to deliver 120 bhp. Wheelbase increased from the 136 inches of the former Model L to 145 inches, allowing the designers to endow it with a longer, lower and more modern appearance. The transmission now featured synchromesh on second and third gears, plus freewheeling. Lincoln’s Murray Body Company produced just 387 7-Passenger Limousines, including this example with its late-production body numbered 365. Luxuriously appointed and weighing 5,525 pounds, these majestic cars were priced at an equally impressive $5,100.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in October of 2011 at the Hershey Lodge, Hershey, Pennsylvania.
120 bhp, 385 cu. in. L-head V-8 engine, Stromberg two-barrel carburetor, three-speed sliding-gear manual transmission with synchromesh second and third gears, solid front and full-floating rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-wheel mechanical brakes. Wheelbase: 145"
