Lincoln Model K, V-12, Judkins Coach Built, Two-Window Berline, Series 417-A, Aluminum Body

1939 Model, 1 of 12 Completed, Sold-in and Titled as a 1940, 1 of 2 1940s known to still exist.

Documented, Preserved, Museum Investment Quality, Last of The Custom Body Era.

Literally, this car is possibly the very last built "to sell" automobile by the storied "Judkins" Coach Building Company.

Very Original, Beautiful and Stunning in every aspect, this Legendary Luxury Lincoln would make an excellent addition to anyone's collection.

Same owner the last 20 years, has won over 300 trophies and occasionally used in wedding photos!

Museum Ready, Significant Provenance, Rare, Elegant and Meticulously Maintained, obviously garaged indoors, with only 32,831 actual miles showing on her odometer. This spectacular Lincoln Model K operates as beautifully now as she did when she was new.

This Rare and Very Original Judkins built 2-Window Berline is one of only two 417-A Aluminum bodies and one of only 133 Lincoln K Models totally produced for 1939, the last year of production for this Lincoln body style and the last year for Judkins, forever!

She was the 20th vehicle from the end of the 1939 Model K production run and 3 digits before President Franklin Roosevelt's Sunshine Special. This rare particular car is one of about a dozen 1939's finished, sold and titled as 1940 models and is one of only two 1940 models know to still exist. A very rare car indeed!

This particular car is also believed to possibly be the very last custom coach automobile built by the famous John B. Judkins' company, who began building carriages in Amesbury, Massachusetts in 1857.

She was delivered to her new customer in St.Louis on Jan 31, 1940. It has been passed down that she may have been originally owned by August A. Busch Sr. Other prominent families such as the Catlins and the Mallinckrodts also purchased coach built luxury cars in St. Louis at the time. Someone willing to pay a visit to St. Louis, may be able to research the information to confirm the identity of her original owner.

Mechanical -All original mechanical equipment with the exceptions of her 6 volt electrical system, which has been upgraded to a 12 volt system, an electric fan and an added water temperature gauge that has been inconspicuously mounted below the driver's side dash. Could easily be changed back.

Engine - original, matching numbers, 414 cu. in. V-12 and original 3 speed manual transmission. The radiator cap is hidden beneath her hood, but her sleek greyhound remains in its customary place atop the radiator. The greyhound hood ornament was designed by the Gorham silversmiths in 1925, a Lincoln hallmark that would persist until World War II.

Paint and Body - This fabulous example of American Automotive History has never been disassembled, modified or taken apart to be restored, she is in excellent, well kept, used survivor condition. Her aluminum bodied exterior is solid, strait, original with the exception of one repaint done in 1980 using correct Black Lacquer which shows a small amount of aging cracks in some of the tight places but still has an amazing depth, luster and mirror finish shine!

Interior - She has all of her original interior with the exception of the front bench seat's bottom fabric. This Custom, Coach built Lincoln is extensively hand-crafted inside as well as outside. Her interior features beige broadcloth and solid wood trim with factory- applied pinstripe accents adorning the window frames. The machined interior hardware features nickel-plating throughout. Her spacious front cabin features her original, 3-spoke, painted steering wheel, Floor-mounted shifter, and an array of gauges and knobs.

Original, luxury amenities in the rear cabin include : Two Wood Vanity and Cigarette Case Cabinets - with interior lights, two shelves and a mirror, Floor Heater, Defroster, Metal Robe Rail, two Toggle Grips, two Hassocks, a very rare Jaeger 8 day clock, Glass Partition behind driver's seat - mobile with a manual handle, an Auxiliary Seat (Opera Seat) that folds into the division partition behind the driver's seat, Smoker's Kit - two wood ash trays with original cigar lighters, Fold-down center Armrest, Overhead Dome Light, and a locking Storage Compartment.
