  1. 1937 Lincoln 12 Willoughby Sport Sedan. Older restoration that still shows well. Original factory build records. Beautiful interior woodwork including foldout desk and cabinetry. Lincoln's finest and most attractive closed car for 1937. Cost new: $8,000. Much spent on mechanicals, resulting in fine tour car. Rebuilt motor and transmission. Recently restored instruments and dash. Rebuilt radio operates nicely. Digital photos available. A lot of car for the money.

  3. The later Lincoln K, built through 1939 is an outstanding automobile. They have plenty of power. I own and regularly drive a 1937 Willoughby Sport Sedan, that weighs in excess of 6,000 pounds. The car performs beautifully. Within the Classic world Lincolns have been under appreciated, and I don't know why. These later Lincoln K's carried more custom coach work than any of the other Classic marques. Whether factory or custom-built, they are beautifully appointed automobiles and represent an excellent value in today's market. Buy it.
