Lincoln Model K Convertible Victoria
The Lincoln Model K was the highest priced offering of Lincoln in the 1930s, with various modifications throughout the decade affecting chassis length, engine displacement and of course styling. The example offered here represents the last year that the K was produced and has highly attractive convertible victoria coachwork by Brunn & Co. The relationship between Brunn and Lincoln goes back to the marque’s fledgling days; Lincoln’s sales were sluggish due to homely looking bodies, and after brief negotiations Herman C. Brunn was ultimately charged with redesigning the line. Fortunately for the small coachbuilder, the lucrative relationship continued after Lincoln was acquired by Ford.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in March of 2012 at the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island, Florida.
