|Model History||Auction sales research||Specifications||Body styles and Chassis Data|
The coachwork is courtesy of the design firm of LeBaron Carrossiers Inc, which was founded in 1920 by Thomas L. Hibbard and Raymond Dietrich. Their headquarters was located at 2 Columbus Circle in New York City, the same home to rival Fleetwood's design offices. The name 'LeBaron' was chosen because it sounded French, and would lend a sophisticated air to their firm.
In 2009, this example was offered for sale at the Vintage Motor Cars of Meadow Brook presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $325,000 - $375,000. As bidding came to a close, the lot had sold for the sum of $319,000, including buyer's premium.
