|Model L Type 176B|
Chassis No: 94222
The Lincoln Motor Company had been founded in 1917 by the great engineer Henry M. Leland and his son Wilfred. After the Great War, Leland's first Lincoln was superbly engineered and built. Introduced in 1921, it was powered by a 358ci (6, 306cc) L-head, 60°, V-8 engine. Unlike more conventional V-engines which offset the cylinder banks slightly to make room for adjacent connecting rod bearings on the crank journals, Leland's Model L used expensive, precision-made fork-and-blade connecting rods and disposed the cylinders directly opposite each other. Unusually for the period, Leland's V-8 had full pressure lubrication.
However, Leland had an engineer's vision and the bodies which completed his automobiles left something to be desired in the design department. Lincoln tried a quick redesign with a set of twelve body designs by Hermann A. Brunn, but it was too late as dismal sales, the post-WWI recession and an erroneous 4. 5 million-dollar tax bill spelled the end of Lincoln. It was bought out of receivership in 1922 by none other than Henry Ford to balance the success of the bare bones Model T with the best-engineered and best-built luxury automobile in America.
Ford put his son Edsel, who had an innate sense of style, grace, balance and proportion, in charge of Lincoln and the automobiles soon began to reflect Edsel's vision. Initial production after the takeover consisted of the Model L, where the "L" indicated that it had been designed by Henry and Wilfred Leland. This would remain the catalogue designation until the model was superseded in 1931, a measure of Edsel Ford's respect for Leland, who was called the "Master of Precision".
This 1930 Lincoln Model L Type 176B Dual Cowl Sports Phaeton with matching numbers is truly American engineering at its finest, the quiet, smooth and powerful engine pulls you along the road with ease, in luxury and style that would question the what vehicle you were driving.
The Lincoln Type 176b Dual Cowl coachwork is beautifully designed, you really can appreciate the aesthetics of the shape and body lines from every angle. The high quality paint work is finished in a two-tone brown, this is complimented by the light yellow coachline and yellow painted wire wheels.
The interior is completed in tan leather to a high standard, with four individual seats, there are lockable door pockets and also lockable solid wood compartments to the rear. The exterior has fender mounted dual spare wheels. The roof is in good condition throughout, comes with its roof ‘top boot’, and there are also detachable side screens, making this Model L fully weather proof.
This car has two desirable Lincoln upgrades - a vacuum brake servo, introduced in the Model K in 1931 and offered as a retrofit to Model L customers, and the desirable Model K Gemmer steering.
