1931 Lincoln Model K, Dietrich

Recommended Posts

They are trying sell a car for 189K and can't even use the gallery photo option to view decent photos and they are too cheap to pay 10¢(?) each for additional photos?....... :angry:

For a Dietrich bodied convertible with a V12 $189 k is probably cheap. Not that I can afford it but if you could, what a car.

Something's not right with the photos. You think an owner of a car like this would have something better than poor-quality shots from car shows. I certainly would.

But it's not a V-12, in the listing it states it's a V-8.

 

I see a couple of things on the car that leads me to question the highest possible standards comment, being a trimmer I look at upholstery and tops very critically......

Well, I certainly missed that one. I saw that engine photo and thought it was a 12. I suspect neither you nor Larders did the trim work on this one.

One could also say, that who ever can invest this kind of money, just go and see it live.   You wil not  buying it based on pictures onley. I would also not waste time to send pictures knowing they wil not buy anyway....  rgds. i think the pictures are good enough to have general idea.

If you are selling a car,  it comes with the territory to take good pictures assuming you actually want to sell the car.   And probably 90% of the guys you send the pictures to are not buyers.

 

Think about this,  are you going to book a plane flight and spend a day looking at a car without really knowing what it is you are going to look at?

One would think that Ebay would the last place to try to sell a car like that!

I agree.  And it dilutes the value.

This was a “batch body” placed on multiple Marques. The identicle body was used on Pierce Arrow chassis, currently the lone surviving Pierce is under restoration in Texas. Why anyone would list such a car for sale on eBay is beyond me.

I have seen it several times first hand - 100 point car (solid no questions asked AACA senior potential and last we spoke they were prepping for CCCA - and should get it as all his CCCA cars score 99 point +  or 100 on dot) and a super nice road car too (restored to show, but also run down the road)- fellow who restored is does incredible work.  Also, car was super solid original prior to restoration.

John, I agree with you--just a beautiful car--the pictures don't do justice to this quality of restoration---Tom

Ed,  I believe "Catalog Custom" is the right wording.

I like the car. Never seen a 31 with K-H drop center wheels.  I find it distracting not to have the trim rings on them. Color choice is great.
