  1. Seven years ago, I bought a '31 K Judkins Berline, running, driving, rebuilt engine, for the same price. THEN I started throwing money at it. This looks like a very nice parts car, unless you have a WAD of cash you want to sink in it. Then there's the little problem of all those Lincoln Engines just hanging around waiting for you to drive down to the parts store and pick one up.
  2. This 1941 Buick started life as a Model 46S, painted black from the factory. About 20 years ago it was subjected to a frame-off restoration, including an engine rebuild, dual carbs, "batwing" air cleaner, 3.90 rear end. It was repainted the authentic 1941 Spring Color, Aberdeen Beige. The car was converted to 12V and an alternator installed. Vintage A/C has been installed and the cooling system is filled with Evans coolant. The radio buttons are there but the radio has been removed, however a CD player and FM receiver are installed in the glove box along with the A/C controls. The original 6V
  3. That you, Mike? Headed to Australia. No reasonable offers here, unfortunately.
  4. I have reduced the asking price to $72,500 but will still consider reasonable offers.
  5. My understanding of the term "Berline" is that it refers to a coach (I believe all of these terms come from French coachbuilder terminology, like limousine, Berline, cabriolet, landaulet, even sedan and coupe, etc.) with a four-door passenger compartment, divided by a glass window, with in addition a cloth (not leather) front seat to permit the owner as well as a chauffeur to drive the car. In addition, the top, instead of being metal with a leather panel insert, is completely covered in leather (or in my case, vinyl); this latter feature, together with the split front window, distinguishes i
  6. That is weird - the photos showed up fine when I uploaded them - now they don't. For additional photos see https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/cars-for-sale/lincoln/k/1919976.html. Not a plug, just a hotfix. Any additional info, just ask.
  7. Here is a historic and award-winning 1931 Lincoln Model K. It is equipped with a 120 hp flathead V8, and has a 145" wheelbase. Its body, Number 5-12271, custom built by the J.B. Judkins Company of Merrimac, MA, is one of 124 two-window Berlines produced by Judkins for Lincoln for the 1931 model year; only four of these cars are believed to still exist. The car was delivered new to Richmond, California on October 30, 1931 and passed through a succession of California owners before I purchased it in 2013. Provenance is available on request. The engine, carburetor and water pump were rebui
  8. I'm looking for sources for intake and exhaust valves for my 31. I know about Egge but I wonder if you all can provide me with other possible sources. Thanks.
  9. I want to apologize for and correct an error that appeared in my most recent post and that may mislead some readers. I incorrectly stated that the Judkins body code for a 1931 Two-window Berline was 1131 as compared to the Lincoln style number of 213A. The correct body code is 1191 for the Two-window Berline, 1191B for the Three-window Berline, and 1191C for the (semi)-collapsible Berline. Photos of the body styles showing the Judkins style numbers can be found at: http://cccamuseum.org/Explore/Archives/ArchiveViewer/tabid/116/Default.aspx I regret the error and hope that no one has bee
  10. Since you have taken the car on trips in the past and have not had the problem, it may be the water pump. On my 31 Lincoln, a brass shear pin holding the impeller on the shaft sheared without my knowing, the same as Matt mentioned earlier. It caused a serious overheating problem which had not occurred on a road test prior to my purchase. If you take the pump apart it's easy to see and was easy to fix on my pump at least.
  11. Some time ago I found a product called P21S - it's a German product available from places like Autogeek.net. I have found it to be good at cleaning up slightly yellowed tires - better IMHO than Blech White. I use it straight from the bottle with the rough (green) side of a household sponge. I have used it on the Lesters on my 39 Buick and the Bedford Famous Cords on my 31 Lincoln, some of which are pretty old. The product is supposed to be an all-purpose cleaner but I found other products that work better for washing etc. But it does work on tires. Maybe it's worth a try.
  12. I have looked through many sources on the Internet and have gotten conflicting views, on where best to place the battery cutoff switch in an antique car. First, some history. On my 39 Buick I had a dead short to ground and only saved the car from a fiery death because I was able to reach and turn the cutoff switch, which was on the POSITIVE side (negative ground car). On my 31 Lincoln I had a cutoff switch installed, but it was on the NEGATIVE side (negative ground car). That switch has now failed and I need to install a new one. The preponderance of opinion seems to be that the cutoff s
