1933 dietrich KB Lincoln V12
Please contact woodiesandwheels.com at (408)371-8030 with any questions. 448 CID L-Head V-12 Engine Single Stromberg Two-Throat Downdraft Carburetor 150 BHP at 3,400 RPM 3-Speed Manual Gearbox with Freewheeling 4-Wheel Mechanical Drum Brakes Live Rear Axle Suspension with Semi-Elliptical Springs and Shock Absorbers This Car Although Lincoln catalogued the KB Dietrich Convertible Sedan for the 1933 model year, only 15 of the splendid automobiles were created. Today, just six are known to exist in any form. The low survival rate of these graceful Lincolns is rather a pity, as they were among the most exclusive automobiles of their day, bolstering the long-standing traditions of a marque synonymous with refined elegance and quality engineering. The Dietrich Convertible Sedan presented here, chassis KB2005, is the earliest of the six surviving examples and the only one known that features the beautiful early-style open fenders. Shortly after production commenced, these attractive wings were replaced with more modern skirting. Tracing back to its beginnings, this Lincoln was originally delivered to a customer on Long Island, New York. Fortunately for the KB, it had the benefit of being well-kept during a period when many Full Classics, even the finest examples, were regarded as used cars and subjected to unsympathetic treatment. In the 1950s, Jack Pope of Indianapolis acquired the KB and was known to show and tour with it and, during his ownership, the Lincoln earned Senior Classic status from the CCCA. Eventually, Mr. Pope had the coachwork repainted and the interior reupholstered to a fair, albeit non-original, appearance. In 1971, he sold the KB to Art Graver of San Francisco, California, who enjoyed the car for a number of years. By the end of the decade, Mr. Graver disassembled the Lincoln to begin a more comprehensive restoration. The engine and top were sent to specialists, while the remainder of the car sat in pieces in his garage. Unfortunately, Mr. Graver never had a chance to complete the project and the car was still in this state when he passed away in 1989. In 1991, Lee Gurvey purchased the Lincoln, still disassembled, from Mr. Graver's widow and entrusted the revival of this significant classic to the noted Chicago restorer Fran Roxas. Subsequently, every aspect of the KB was addressed in anticipation of competing at national- level concours events. During the disassembly process, an undisturbed sample of the original Dietrich Dark Green was discovered and used to match the new finish. The top had been Ford Green canvas, which was luckily available in the reproduction market. Although the original patterns for the upholstery did not survive, one of the surviving sister cars still carried its original interior and was used as a model for the restoration. After a year of painstaking effort, the KB returned to the road looking as splendid as the day it was delivered. Over the next few years, the Lincoln embarked on a grand tour of American concours events, collecting a number of notable honors along the way. The magnificent classic received a perfect score at the Illinois Regional Concours d'Elegance, an AACA Junior Award and President's Cup at the Hershey Meet, a CCCA Premier Award at a Grand Classic and the General Packard Award at Meadow Brook. Perhaps the most significant awards were earned at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, where the Dietrich-bodied Lincoln bested the competition, achieving First in Class as well as the coveted Most Elegant Award. In 1997, after years of accumulating trophies, Otis Chandler purchased the much-admired KB and kept it in his peerless collection of American classics until his passing in 2006. During the period spent in his care, the Lincoln was driven sparingly, thereby preserving its show-quality appearance. The current owner has also been an attentive steward, having the car maintained as needed and keeping it stored in climate- controlled conditions. For the collector who appreciates the great luxury cars of the 1930s, there is much to admire about this coachbuilt KB. With its tasteful appearance, first-rate coachwork, impressive provenance and award-winning pedigree, there is no doubt that it will continue to occupy a place of distinction in the collection of its next caretaker.

1928 Lincoln, Locke Touring, 3 Owner CA Car, Older Resto, For Sale! We offer on consignment this gorgeous three-owner Southern California car that was bought new in Riverside, CA in 1928.

It is obvious that the Lincoln has led a charmed existence with loving caretakers. The car exudes correctness and originality, albeit while wearing a forty year old restoration! The paint and chrome have a consistent patina. The livery is very tasteful and elegant in tan and brown. Rust was never an issue with this Lincoln given its sheltered Southern California history. The paint and chrome is good and is perfect for touring and exhibition. The interior is in very good condition. The interior would be considered very nice for touring and show. The light tan leather has the correct grain and is a fabulous complement to the ample use of wood throughout.

The engine and drive train sound excellent with no unusual noises or vibrations. The six wire wheels are nicely painted in tan. History of the Lincoln Bought new in 1928 in Riverside, CA, the original owner kept the Touring until being sold to a local physician in the late 1950's or early 60's. The physician commenced a correct high quality restoration in the late 1960's that remains in nice condition today. The present owner's father was a significant collector of Classic motorcars in Southern California. He couldn't resist buying this newly restored Seven Passenger Touring when it came up for sale in the early 1970's. He enjoyed the car and used it often, including in the Hollywood Christmas Parade. By 1982 he had passed away whereby the Lincoln was transferred to his daughter and her husband, Tom and Pat. Tom and Pat have enjoyed the Lincoln ever since. Their seven grandchildren have fond memories of using the jump seats and running boards. This elegant and sporty Lincoln still bears its California "blue plates" issued in 1982. It runs and drives well but would need some maintenance for significant long distance touring. The Model L was powered by a 383.8 cubic-inch flathead V8 engine with aluminum pistons and offering 90 horsepower. It was connected to a three-speed manual gearbox. It is rare to find a Model L Locke Touring as production was scarce, and even rarer to find one with three owners since new in nice condition. The fact that this is a documented California car since new makes it incredibly rare and valuable. We encourage discerning collectors to view this motorcar or have it spected. This is a fabulous opportunity to buy an affordable open classic that has known provenance. Please contact Harry at harry@classicpromenade.com or call us at 951.901.5088.
