1937 Lincoln Model K Panel Brougham

Vehicle Details

This 145” wheelbase Model K wears the most exclusive and expensive body available in 1937, the Panel Brougham by Willoughby Coachbuilders of Utica, NY. The Panel Brougham features dramatic razor-edge styling that was very distinctive for the time. Lincoln produced a total of 977 Model Ks in 1937. Of that 977 only four were built of this particular model. This car was once a part of the illustrious Roy Warshawsky’s collection, the founder of J.C. Whitney, who was famous for his fondness for Lincoln automobiles. Rick Kriss performed the restoration, and the car scored a Best in Class at the 1988 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. In the years since, a series of well-known collectors have meticulously maintained it. After leaving the Warshawsky collection, it was owned briefly by Dr. J. Murphy, who then sold it to General William Lyons. This Lincoln was a fixture in General Lyons’ collection for many years and it remains in good condition today. Features include Senior Trippe lights, a Greyhound mascot, dual side-mounted spares and chrome wire wheels. This car is unique in that it features the hand-painted cane work on the body sides, which was an original option, according to the factory catalog. The interior is correctly restored with a leather driver’s compartment and a gray broadcloth rear compartment. It’s powered by a 414ci V12 engine that sends power through a 3-speed manual transmission. Luxurious appointments include roller blinds, folding opera seats, footrests, woodwork and a Jaeger 8-day clock. This Lincoln K is ready to be enjoyed on the road or to show.
