Model K 1931 Convertible Victoria by Waterhouse





The Lincoln K-Series (also called the Model K, reflecting the earlier Ford Model K) was a line of luxury vehicle produced by Lincoln from 1930 to 1940. While the original K-Series featured a 385 in³ (6.3 L) V8, a V12 became standard in 1933. Customers also had the choice of ordering a fully custom coachwork.

The original Model K appeared in the 1931 model year on a new chassis with a 145 in (3683 mm) wheelbase. Factory bodies included a 2- or 4-door phaeton, the latter available as a dual-cowl model. The 384.8 in³ (6.3 L) engine was a derivative of the earlier L-series 60° V8, but a dual venturi downdraft Stromberg carburetor, higher compression, and altered timing upped power to 120 hp (89 kW).

The renowned Waterhouse Company of Webster, Massachusetts had a short time in the limelight due to the economic climate of the era, but during this period they designed and built coachwork whose influences carried on. Custom bodies, such as this Convertible Victoria, personified the company’s slogan "A Recognized Reputation for Smart Sport Models". Among the custom Waterhouse touches seen in this car are the distinct door moldings and extended cowl, as well as the extraordinarily low, raked windshield. Its total presence is one of understated sportiness whether the top is fixed or lowered.
