To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys' Fort Lauderdale event, 29 - 30 March 2019. Estimate:$70,000 - $90,000 Showing less than 24,000 miles from new, thought to be originalBeneficiary of a fresh engine rebuild in excess of $40,000One of two of this body style produced; the only one known to existClassic Car Club of America (CCCA) Full ClassicEligible for CARavans, Grand Classics, and club events After just two years of production for the KB and one year for the series KA, Lincoln revised both models for the 1934 model year. Powering the new models was a single engine a V-12 of 414.1 cu. in. which developed 150 hp. All models were considered Ks, though the Series 521 (or KA) rode a 136-in. wheelbase while Series 271 (or KB) featured the long 145-in. chassis. Fred Waring, Bing Crosby, and W.C. Fields all purchased new Lincolns during 1934.The new V-12 was less complex than earlier models while providing similar horsepower and greater torque. Improvement and updates were myriad freewheeling wasoptional; inside there was a new instrument panel; and outside all models featured a painted radiator shell rather than the plated version on previous years Lincolns. The familiar Lincoln cloisonné emblem was now 100% blue on all models. Brakes were revised with two-shoe servo type function with molded linings resulting in more efficient stopping power with softer pedal pressure.Built on special order only in Lincolns own shops, the four-passenger sport phaeton was not listed by Lincoln as being available, but two were built, including this car according to the Crestline book The Cars of Lincoln Mercury. It is the only one known to exist today. Unlike previous models, it is fitted with curved wind deflectors on both rear doors. The deflectors pivoted on their forward apex swinging down into the doors when they were opened. The tonneau windshield could be lowered into its own compartment behind the rear seat providing a more streamlined appearance.Data from the Henry Ford Museum documents this carhaving been delivered new on 23 April 1934. Most importantly, it retains its original V-12 engine which features a fresh engine rebuild costing in excess of $40,000 including new aluminum heads. Despite being an older restoration, it has less than 24,000 miles, which is believed to be original. KBs from 1937 are among the most desirable among Lincoln collectors due to the vastly improved V-12 engine used over earlier models. This CCCA-eligible vehicle is perfect for CARavans, Grand Classics, shows, and club events and will no doubt be the darling wherever it appears.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/fl19.
