1933 Lincoln Brougham V-12
Model KB
Town Car Landaulette Cabriolet
Custom Coachwork By, BRUNN

Model Year History Overview:
In 1932 Lincoln introduced the Model KB V-12 series which are considered the best Lincolns ever built.  Its huge 448 cid V-12 engine provided better performance than its V-8 and was Lincoln’s answer to the multi-cylinder challenges from Cadillac, Packard, and others.  The KB model was considered to be the top-of-the-line. Lincoln and Cadillac had a common founder; Henry Leland.  Leland sold Lincoln to William Durant who later sold it to Henry Ford in 1922.  By the 1930s the uncompetitive Lincoln product line was completely re-designed.  The prestige market was very strong in the 1920’s, but dried up in the economic depression of the ‘30’s.  Lincoln would not equal its best year sales of 9,000 units in 1926 until 1935.

Original Sold To History:
This Brunn -Body semi-collapsible cabriolet featured two folding opera or jump seats were one of eight built in 1933.  It was purchased by the Babcock Coal Company as a gift to Bishop Hickey of New York.  The car passed to Charles Kohlmetz of New Jersey where it won a first place at the New Jersey Grand Classic.  The car once ended up in the Roy Warshawsky collection in Chicago.
