To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys' Hershey event, 11 - 12 October 2018. Offered from a prominent private collectionFormerly of the renowned Jack Passey Lincoln collectionOne of 25 examples built in this beautiful semi-custom styleConcours-quality restoration of a longtime California carClassic Car Club of America (CCCA) Primary First Place winner The KB, as the ultimate Lincoln, could be had as a 145-in. chassis for custom coachwork, but many coachworks took advantage of the semi-custom offerings that were produced for Lincoln by the East Coasts finest custom coachbuilders and catalogued by the factory. Among the most attractive designs was style no. 281, a convertible sedan designed by the legendary Raymond Dietrich, with his distinctive, opening veed windshield and superb proportions. Just 25 examples of this model were produced.The example offered here was acquired in the 1950s by the late, great Lincoln collector, longtime Pebble Beach Concours judge, and friend to many, Jack Passey, froma fellow enthusiast in Modesto, California. In 2014, Mr. Passey recalled that when he acquired 3434 from 34, it had a tow bar attached to the rear bumper, and he used it to pull home several other finds without difficulty. He eventually passed the car to a fellow collector and judge, Bill Smith, at which point it was still original and, as can be seen from its tow duties, in very solid and nicely running condition.Smith conducted a concours-quality restoration over a three-year period, which ended up being a frame-off process that encompassed the chassis, body, powertrain, upholstery, and top. The bulk of the effort was carried out in his own shop, with engine work by Ellsworth Machine, of Palo Alto, California; paint by Avenue Auto Body, of San Carlos; and upholstery by Bill Debuque, of Cooks Upholstery in Redwood City. After the Lincolns completion in 2010, it went on to receive two 1st in Class awards at West Coast shows. In previous ownership it was also awarded a CCCA Primary First Place in2016 and is now eligible to be shown in the Senior division.The cars previous owners rebuilt the carburetor and fuel pump, had the gauges rebuilt, installed a new top and boot, had the footrest for the rear compartment reproduced to the correct original design, and located and installed a correct, virtually impossible-to-source trunk. The owner notes that all gauges work and the car runs and drives well, and has been enjoyable on the road while being maintained to a high standard. It is offered with an original instruction book, reproduction service bulletins, recent service and maintenance records, and a second set of keys.This is a lovely example of the Full Classic Lincoln, in one of the best body styles, with superb known provenance and a wonderful presentation.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/hf18.

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys' Hershey event, 11 - 12 October 2018. One of the most elegant and powerful models of its eraHandsome formal coachworkIdeal for CCCA CARavans or local showsClassic Car Club of America (CCCA) Full Classic Streamlining its operation in the face of the Great Depression, Lincoln adopted a single new V-12 for both its smaller KA and top-of-the-line KB models in 1934. Enlarged to 414 cu. in. from the KA engine of the year prior, it rode a cruciform double-drop chassis frame, with the two models distinguished largely by their wheelbases: 136 in. for the KA and 145 for the KB.The other major difference was in available body styles. The KB, as the ultimate Lincoln, could be had as a chassis for custom coachwork, but many coachworks took advantage of the semi-custom offerings that were produced for Lincoln by the East Coasts finest custom coachbuilders and catalogued by the factory. Finished to the specifications of each individual customer order, these bodies offeredan unbeatable combination of custom quality, style, and individuality, at a price somewhat lower than a full custom body.The elegant limousine offered here boasts a sumptuously appointed body by Lincolns own shops, and was one of just 215 so-fitted in 1934. A well-preserved older restoration in a rich dark blue, striped in gold, it features a lush interior with a black leather drivers compartment and grey cloth passenger compartment, with beautiful brightwork and solid wood trim evident throughout. Everything presents very nicely and the car would be a treat for local showing or CCCA CARavans, just as it was enjoyed by its most recent long-term owner, the late New York enthusiast Robert Blakeman.The Model KB is the most desirable Lincoln of the Classic Era, and this car offers a chance to experience the joys of its ownership.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/hf18.
