Lincoln K Body Quality

Recommended Posts

From The Lincoln V-12 Designs for 1937 catalogue:

The Lincoln body is soundly and beautifully built.  Windshield stanchions, of heat-treated aluminum alloy casting, have a tensile strength of 30,000 lbs.  per sq. in.  The roof construction of the Lincoln-built body types is metal.  Each body uses 60 sq. ft. of sheet aluminum, 14 gauge; 321 feet (in the Lincoln 7-sedan) of form-cut lumber; 59 quarts of the best automobile body paint science can produce; approximately 2100 wood screws; and,  all told, 161 lbs. of aluminum castings.
