If you can’t get past the color choice, please try – this Murray-bodied V-12 1933 Lincoln KB would still be a striking car in the blandest of hues. Of course, whether the purple complements it or simply gets in the way of true appreciation of the Full Classic is debatable. From the seller’s description:
This five-passenger Victoria Coupe, or Model 256 was built in-house at Lincoln. This KB was one of 18 built and is the only known surviving example. The coachwork is by Murray. Harris Laskey purchased this rare KB in the early 1990s for their collection and undertook a comprehensive restoration. Laskey, known for his distinct choice of colors, expressed the beauty of this car with dark purple fenders and roof, a raspberry body with gray-violet trim details and matching dark-purple pin striping. To complete the luxurious sporting car appearance, Laskey chose an interior of gray-herringbone cloth for the passenger seating, with dark-gray leather piping. The headliner is light gray, as well as the backs of the split front seats. It has matching gray carpeting. The V12 engine is clean and detailed with many polished parts. Excellent, fully-restored condition throughout. This car has been only been driven and used sparingly since its restoration. It was shown at Pebble Beach.
