And. if you talk to Lincoln historians. the 1933 Lincoln KB IS the best Lincoln ever produced. With the introduction of Cadillac's 1930 V16. and 1931 V12. it had become apparent that the multi-cylinder race to woo America's most prosperous buyers had hit the ground running. That meant any company wishing to compete at the very top of the new car market would need to adopt the 'bigger is better' mindset. And when Henry Leland founded Lincoln. he constructed the brand on the premise of cars without compromise. True to that philosophy. Lincolns had always been well built cars. And this incredible classic. 1 of only 533 1933 KBs assembled and 1 of only 3 Victorias believed to still exist. is the epitome of what was. and should still be. great about the Lincoln Motor Company. If you're looking for a legendary American automobile that's primed for a museum. its time to make an "Unquestionably sound investment"!HISTORYKB 2532 received its first professional restoration before an acquisition by noted Lincoln collector Roy Warshawsky of J. C. Whitney fame. According to close friends. the big Victoria was one of his all-time favorite pieces. remaining in his personal collection until his death. On point cosmetically. but mechanically fragile due to years of display. the car was then acquired by Ohio collector Richard Scott. Scott intended to drive the classic as it was meant to be enjoyed. so he returned the car to running condition and ultimately completed a 1. 00-mile CCCA CARavan that snaked through the Pacific Northwest. When Scott sold KB 2532. it followed a stint in one of America's preeminent car collections with a 6-year stay in a Midwest automotive museum. And today. RK Motors Charlotte proudly showcases the car as some of the finest pre-war luxury we've ever offered!COACHWORK/TRIMAlthough Lincoln did offer custom-built cars the company also placed stock orders. sometimes 50 at a time. to a multitude of coachbuilders. Known as the catalog custom system. this accomplished three things: 1) a shorter delivery time 2) allowed customers to still enjoy the quality and exclusivity of a coachbuilt automobile and 3) allowed customers to easily customize certain aspects of their cars in a variety of ways. Not surprisingly. catalog bodies were sourced from the leading coachbuilders of the day. including Judkins. Waterhouse. Murphy. Brunn. Dietrich. Willoughby and LeBaron. In addition to being the finest vintage of Lincoln ever produced. KB 2532 features what many consider the most attractive of those coachbuilt bodies: Brunn's striking Convertible Victoria. With its low windshield. clean top lines and sweeping fender lines. the car is a masterpiece of classic era design. Naturally. that body's paint is Wall Street swank. alternating between subdued burgundy and tame tan 2-stage. And that expertly applied pigment has been buffed to the kind of liquid-smooth shine that'll be right at home sitting on the show field. ENGINEIt's no surprise that one of the finest Lincolns ever built is powered by one of the finest engines ever built. With seven main bearings. fork and blade connecting rods and separate cylinder blocks. this Victoria's 448 cubic inch V12 is an engineering masterpiece. That said; there was one problem. The 150 horsepower mill was so expensive to manufacture that it would be promptly replaced by a more conventional design. making 1933 the last year for the ultimate Lincoln. The result is. among today's premium car collectors. 1932 and 1933 L-head KBs have achieved legendary status. DRIVETRAINDriven by Edsel Ford. Lincoln was unwavering in its commitment to the coachbuilt car. Although a baseline of factory standard sedans was offered. each year new designs were solicited from customhouses for the top-of-the-line KB. and those renderings were used to produce sales catalogs for Lincoln dealers. The brand's chassis. specifically designed to receive bespoke coachwork. featured unparalleled quality. The foundation for that quality was solid front and live rear axles. longitudinal leaf springs and 4-wheel vacuum servo assisted drum brakes. With those bits in mind. the 1933 model did receive a few updates in the form of better frame reinforcement. an adjustable vacuum booster. thermostatic shock absorbers and a new 3-speed transmission. INTERIORThe interior of this antique cruiser is not as sparse as one might think. Wood-topped door panels join smooth carpet. and pleated and stainless-trimmed seats to serve as all of the car's soft points. The dash and steering wheel are restored pieces that feature an assortment of period correct knobs. gauges and controls. There's a small mirror and dual windshield wipers. which add a bit of livability. And overall. this Lincoln emphasizes the kind of secure. luxurious coddling that most showroom-fresh metal lost a long time ago. 1932 and '33 Lincolns are regarded as some of the finest and most undervalued cars of their era. This Victoria is an elegant. luxurious and exceptionally stylish reminder of the incredible engineering prowess of one of the world's most storied automotive franchises. And today. the car remains in excellent overall condition. prepared to show and cruise while accumulating value and prestige. About This Auction Please note that all sales are binding and final.
