  • Description

Like Cadillac years before, Lincoln was created by Henry Leyland but it was not under his control for very long. Shortly after its creation in 1921, there was a post WWI economic recession and the marque was almost lost forever, but Henry Ford saved it from receivership and from then on Lincoln would be headed by Henry's son, Edsel, who molded Lincoln to quickly become a very prominent marque in the luxury car market. Lincoln's first model, the model L was continued until 1931 when the model K was introduced which would be the first new design under Ford's ownership. Beginning in 1932 the K was offered as the KA with the 136 inch wheelbase and V8 engine and the KB with the 145 inch wheelbase and V12 engine, but in 1933 both the KA and KB would be offered with V12 engines, the KB being on a longer wheelbase. These V-12 Lincolns were some of the best quality built cars of the classic era and were beautiful to boot. Pound for pound, the Lincoln could take on equally in quality and beauty some of the other best American marques of the classic era such as Packard, Duesenberg, and Marmon. 1933 is the best looking year of all the KA's, especially in convertible coupe form because while the bodies were built by Murray, they were designed by Dietrech. While the same goes for 1934, the 1933 design is a bit better with a lower windshield and top, a slimmer waistline and grille and much larger 1932 style C.M. Hall headlights. The 1933 KA is one of the best looking and well designed Lincolns of them all. 

 
Offered here is the most original 1933 KA convertible coupe in existence, completely original with just 27,000 original miles from new.  Retaining all of its original paint, upholstery and top this Lincoln is a time capsule. Formerly a part of the Harrah's collection in Nevada for many years it was sold at the auctions after Bill Harrah's death in the 1980s. Purchased at the auction by a collector here in Connecticut the Lincoln would be tucked away in a carriage house where it would remain until our acquisition of it very recently. It still has the brass Harrah's number tags both on the key and hanging under the hood and it even still has the Harrah's auction information taped on the windshield. Upon our acquisition of the car we rebuilt the carburetor, cleaned the fuel system, installed new tires and gave it a cleaning. It runs and drives like a brand new car, it is outstanding. This car can be taken directly to Pebble Beach and be a very strong contender in the preservation class. It has never been shown anywhere other than in the Harrahs collection. It is fantastic.
