Requiem for K9232

Recommended Posts

We will put as much of this car to use as we can, but this 1938 Lincoln Willoughby Tourer deserved a better fate. I'm also attaching pics of a restored one so you all can see how far this one has deteriorated.

Where was that one?   Well, looks like you got your extra transmission.  And it still has the EE 22 carb on it.

It was here in NC so I kind of couldn't pass it up. Pretty toasty but the engine still has the original two-rib plugs suggesting reasonably low miles and with any luck the tranny will be solid. What I can salvage but can't use, I''ll pass on ...

Was there a piece of the touring car body laying around there?  It looks like someone got all the aluminum off the body for scrap. The cowl is even gone.

The only pieces they had left were the door posts (aluminum), badly rusted hood sides and top aluminum panels, which weren't in very good shape.  The rest of it was long, long gone. if I had to guess, the car suffered major road salt damage and was stripped decades ago.

Any K-series Lincoln deserves a much better fate than this one did! 

 

What are your plans for it?

That is not a bad looking Willoughby design - too bad.  Most are pretty conservative.  Every car can't be saved but it was good you were able to grab it before it was completely melted down.

My plans are to harvest what I can -- it has the complete drivetrain from radiator to rear end, so they will be nice spares.  Also, I'll keep the wheels and drums and axle components. Not sure the shocks can be saved, though.
