Derham Convertible Phaeton
Coachwork: Derham
Chassis #: 63842
High bid of $100,000 at 2012 RM Auctions - St. Johns, Michigan. (did not sell)
Philadelphia based Derham Coachbuilding Company was in operation until 1974. In 1928, the firm designed a four-passenger convertible phaeton on a Hispano-Suiza chassis for Countess Holstein. The car was displayed at Derham's showroom while two other examples were built by Derham's craftsmen for Chrysler and Packard chassis.

1930 was the final year of Model L production. Lincoln added the Derham design to its custom-body catalogue for 1930, and only 20 examples were built, with just three known to survive. The Derham convertible phaeton was a true open phaeton and a rakish sedan with crisp lines flowing into a sloping rear deck. The top could be fitted over the tops of the front and rear windows.

This particular example was carefully detailed by John Maitland, who purchased the Lincoln in March of 1952 for $200 from the Estate of Daniel Cook, who was given the car by his elder aunts, who had reportedly acquired the car directly off the floor of the New York Auto Show when new. When Mr. Maitland, purchased the vehicle it was in good original condition with approximately 50,000 miles. Mr. Maitland replaced the muffler, tailpipe, and running boards. The car was repainted and was given a new convertible top and spare-tire covers.

After transferring to Detroit in 1956, Mr. Maitland sold the Lincoln. In 1958 it was acquired by Lima, Ohio's Norman Delaney, who had the engine overhauled, installed new rear-end seals, and retained the car through 1969. The following year it entered the Tom Lester Collection where it was refinished in Light Tan with Coffee accents and Orange wheels.

The L-head V8 engine displaces 384.8 cubic-inches, produces 90 horsepower, and is mated to a three-speed manual transmission.

In 2012, the car was offered for sale at the St. Johns sale presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $140,000 - $170,000. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $100,000 inclusive of buyer's premium.
