Brunn & Company of Buffalo, N.Y. was a favorite coachbuilder of Edsel Ford's. One of the body styles the company developed was the cabriolet, in collapsible and semi-collapsible style.
Mr. Ford was especially close to Hermann Brunn Jr. for whom this cabriolet was built. It was, in effect, the prototype for all subsequent cabriolets. Mr. Brunn enjoyed this car for several years before selling it.
The custom-built Brunn body styles among the most expensive offerings from Lincoln in 1936; the model shown here sold for nearly $7,000 new - about what one might pay for a fine house.Also photographed at :
