Lincoln "K" Parts and Cars for Sale

For Sale- 1931 Lincoln Model K Dual Cowl Sport Pha...
Author Last Post
The history of this Dual-Cowl Sport Phaeton is documented back to the 1950s, when it was owned by Clarence Pruiksma, Sr., of Midland Park, New Jersey. Its next owner was the noted collector Philip Wichard of Huntington, Long Island, New York. Wichard had been involved with cars since age ten, when he bought a car at a junkyard for $5.00 and quickly doubled his money. Once he became a successful businessman as an adult, he turned to restoring cars, seldom selling any of them. By the time of his death in 1995, he rated an obituary in the New York Times, which related the auction sale of his 47-car collection for more than $2 million.

The car is now an older restoration, but still stunning in silver with black accent moldings. Of note is its red underbody and chassis, which provide a subtle counterpart to the exterior colors. The leather upholstery is done in matching red. The tan canvas top shows its age but is entirely serviceable. The engine, which is nicely detailed, runs well, however has some top end noise that suggesting needing some attention. The current owner has put over 5,000 miles on this Lincoln. A set of Phil Bray high-speed gears installed about ten years ago gives it long legs for touring. A Full Classic under Classic Car Club of America aegis, it received Primary First Place honors with 98.5 points, medallion 2436, at the 2002 Florida Grand Classic at Naples. Two years later, it was graduated to Senior status, again with 98.5 points, at the Boca Raton Grand Classic.

Offered at $99,500

SOLD
