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 Coast’s finest custom coachbuilders and catalogued by the factory. Finished to the specifications of each individual customer order, these bodies offered an 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 Lincoln’s 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 driver’s 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.
