Der V8-Motor bekam 5 bhp Leistungszuwachs und entwickelte nun 125 bhp (92 kW) bei 2.900/min. Die Fahrgestelle wurden wieder um 9" gekürzt (Radstand 3.454 mm) und die Anzahl der möglichen Aufbauten drastisch auf zehn gekürzt. Der Preis des "kleinen Modells" sank um mindestens 1.000;-- US-$.
Die L-Modelle kennzeichnete neben dem eher bodenständigen Design; dass sie mit den aus dem Flugzeugbau entwickelten; relativ leichten V8-Motoren ausgestattet waren. Ab 1931 entwickelte Lincoln mit der Einführung des Modells K bereits ein eigenständiges Design; auch wenn die Karosserieform typisch für die damalige Zeit war. Ab 1932 war die Entwicklung für den neuen V12 (Lincoln L-Head) abgeschlossen; und dieser Motor wurde in Serie gebaut. Der Motor war vom Konstruktionsprinzip her ein ?Flathead? oder ?Seitenventiler?. Dies erlaubte eine sehr kurze Verbindung zwischen Nocken- und Kurbelwelle und damit mehr Präzision für die Ventilsteuerung in einem großen Drehzahlbereich. Lincoln hatte in diesen Jahren unter Absatzschwierigkeiten zu leiden; da die Wirtschaftsdepression der zwanziger Jahre immer noch Nachwirkungen zeigte



History
Becoming a vehicle that was known for luxury; the Lincoln underwent a total transformation in 1931. Re-powered; re-styled; and becoming lower-priced; this entire transformation was done under the censorship of Edsel Ford. The Lincoln Model K replaced the Model L; and only a total of forty five models were ever produced.With an increased horsepower from 90 to 120; the newly added Stromberg carburetor increased the engine with 384.8 cubic inches. With a price significantly lower than any other Lincolns; the Model K 7-passenger Touring vehicle was used primarily as a limousine. Though at $4;400; the model K still cost ten times the amount of a Ford.The largest updates were contained in the body style. The wheel base was now increased to 145 inches with a longer hood; and rounded bumpers which now gave it a low and sleek profile. Dual trumpet horns and large bowl-shaped head lights now gave the front a stunning look. Utilized mainly as a limousine; sales were less than half of what they were in the late 1920s due to the Depression. A reflection of the earlier Ford Model K; the Lincoln K-series was a luxury vehicle line that was produced until 1942. A V12 became standard in 1933; while the original K-Series featured a 385 in³ (6.3 L) V8. The option of ordering a fully custom coachwork was available for customers.Appearing on a new chassis in 1931; the original Model K had a 145 in (3683 mm) wheelbase. Available as a dual cowl model; factory bodies were a 2 or 4-door phaeton. A derivative of the earlier L-series 60° V8; the 384.8 in³ (6.3 L) engine had a dual downdraft Stromberg carburetors; altered timing upped power to 120 hp (89 kW); and higher compression. Splitting into two lines in 1932; the Lincoln K-series featured the carryover Model KA and the new V12-powered Model KB. The engine output was pushed to 125 hp (93 kW) while the V8 car reverted to a 136 in (3454 mm) wheelbase. Producing 150 hp (112 kW); the KB featured the marques new V12; 447.9 in³ (7.3 L) 65° L-head unit. These two new lines featured a new grille with less of a surround; and vent doors rather than vertical louvers on the sides of the hood. Both series also featured a parking light on top of each front fender and 18 inch wire wheels.The Model KA V8 engine was replaced in 1933 with a new 381.7 in³ (6.3 L) V12. The large KB engine shared very few similarities with this new L-head engine. Only a few minor changes that were readily visible occurred on the 1933 K-series. The return of hood louvers and the deletion of the bar linking the headlights were by far the most obvious updates. The chassis was also revised; along with thermostatic shock absorbers and transmission. 


The Lincoln K series (also called the Model K; reflecting the earlier Ford Model K) was a line of luxury vehicleproduced 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 Lincoln K series was split in 1932 into two lines; the V8 carryover Model KAand the new V12-powered Model KB. The V8 car reverted to a 136 in (3454 mm) wheelbase; though engine output was pushed to 125 hp (93 kW). The KB; on the other hand; featured the marques new L-head V12 engine. The 447.9 cuin (7.3 L) 65° L-head unit produced 150 hp (112 kW).[2] Both series featured a new grille with less of a surround; vent doors rather than vertical louvers on the sides of the hood; a parking light on top of each front fender; and 18 inch wire wheels. The Lincoln V-12 competed directly with cross town rival Cadillac V-12 introduced earlier in 1930; and it joined a select group of 1930s cars with multicylinder engines; namely those manufactured by FranklinHispano-SuizaHorchLagondaMaybachPackardRolls-RoyceTatraVoisinWalter; and Marmon. The Victoria Coupe was offered as both a steel roof and a convertible; and the coupe was the inspiration for the smaller 1932 Ford Victoria coupe; also offered with a V8 engine but a more affordable price.[3] The Lincoln Victoria coupe; first introduced in limited numbers in 1929;[4] also competed with the Packard Light Eight Victoria coupe also in 1932.

Ölindikator bei diesem Modell mit Schwimmer funktioniert perfekt
(sehr häufig defekt bei Lincoln und führt dazu dass man nicht weiß wie viel Öl sich im Motor befindet. Das führt dann meist zu einer Überfüllung mit den entsprechenden Folgeschäden)
